Like Clockwork, Richardson Speaks

You know the drill people. For those who want to listen to the full interview, you can do so here, or via the embed below. As always my thoughts in bold. On the eight game winning streak and how the offence is finally clicking… “Not much (has changed), I think it’s just working hard. You have to […]

Today In Sens History: Bochenski’s Hat-Trick

After scoring 47 goals in 55 games with the Lincoln Starts of the USHL, Brandon Bochenski was selected by the Ottawa Senators in the 7th round of the 2001 NHL Entry Draft, along with future NHLers Jason Spezza, Tim Gleason, Brooks Laich, Christoph Scubert, Ray Emery and Brian Elliott. Over the next three years Bochenski […]

Swedish Intervention

If I heard that Ottawa was in line for a Swedish intervention, I would naturally assume it was part and parcel of some Don Cherry led movement chastizing the organization to draft MORE KIDS FROM ONTARIO, EH! Unfortunately however, reports out of Sweden indicate that WJC head coach Roger Rönnberg is displeased with the Senators’ […]

Tim Murray Speaks

Assistant GM Tim Murray made an appearance on The Drive yesterday afternoon, the bulk of which is transcribed below. The big news of Zibanejad staying in Bingo (rather than playing in the WJC) was explained from the organization's perspective. Among other topics hit on were Lehner's hot start, the job Luke Richardson has done, and […]

Alfie Eyeing Europe, If Not 2013/14

Daniel Alfredsson is looking more seriously at his playing options overseas as the specter of another wiped out NHL season looms. Soak that up Ottawa. Let that sentence marinate, embrace it in Konopka bear-hug fashion. Alfie is approximately a week and a half shy of his 40th birthday and has 1,082 points in 1,131 NHL regular […]


Murray hates Sweden

Hade Zibanejad varit kanadensare som fixat JVM-guld i fjol, hade han inte blivit stoppad. Den shitstormen av kritik hade Ottawa aldrig tagit — Magnus Nyström (@Nystromhockey)


In the midst of a 6-0-0-1 streak, Binghamton Senators head coach Luke Richardson made his weekly Tuesday afternoon on The Drive. Although Richardson hit on some other topics (ie. how seemingly every Swedish hockey product is a complete player who understands the defensive nuances of the game) that I did not bother to include in […]

Ottawa Remains An Old Team

Having purchased the latest Hockey Prospectus 2012/13 Annual — which comes highly recommended to anyone who regularly frequents this blog; especially at the ridiculously low price of $9.90 to download the PDF version – I can tell you that one of the key features that I look forward to reading the most is its Core Age analysis. […]

@NHL_Sens RT’s Column Endorsing Bettman’s Ouster

Of course this RT was promptly deleted…which is a shame. If we've learned anything in the past year, the people love their team accounts with a little personality. Be your radical self @NHL_Sens! Anyway, here's the Duhatschek column in question.

Jason Spezza Should Not Play The Spengler

Jason Spezza has informed Hockey Canada he is willing to participate in the Spengler Cup and to put it succinctly, it sickens me. On one hand, here is a player who has historically gone to considerable lengths to ingratiate himself to the fans, the organization, the media and his teammates. And we can add Hockey […]

Shots, Shots, Shots

Through 13GP Binghamton is 7-4-2, good for 5th place in their conference – that in spite of only scoring 34 goals. Their leading goal-scorer is Derek Grant, who's a swell prospect to be sure, but fans are clamoring for more from those prefixed as "highly-touted".  Hopefully this post can ease concerns. While Silf and Zibanejad […]

Richardson Speaks: Cowen’s Injury, Z-Bad, Silf

Another weekly radio appearance by Binghamton Senators head coach Luke Richardson and another weekly transcription for you here at The 6th Sens. Richardson touched upon a number of points that I couldn’t be bothered writing about – Hugh Jessiman, Tyler Eckford, the non-existent Toronto/Ottawa rivalry at the AHL-level (caused by the fact that Toronto and […]
