Impressions from Scrimmage

The subtitle could be Mark Stone and the Others. Stone was dominant as he quarterbacked the offence from the right side for a large part of the scrimmage. He show his great hands and his creative...

Impressions from Dev Camp

Watching guys do complex drills has some value in testing guys skill. It gives some clue about how a guy will react in scoring positions. I grant you that it is limited, but it's another way of...

What the Hell is going on?

I'm really puzzled exactly why the Sabres couldn't trade Ehrhoff for something... anything??? Do you mean to tell me all 29 teams declined to take Ehrhoff for a 7th round pick in next year's draft?...

Alfy was right!!!

The last game I went to that Alfy played here, I was marveling at the sheer numbers of #11 jerseys that were present in the building. I loved Alfy as much as most of you did, and my heart got...

Illusions and More Illusions

Going into this season thinking that we were prepared to take a run because of our success last year was a huge illusion. Expecting the spectacular goaltending of last year to continue was a huge...

Should We or Shouldn't We?

Of course it depends on what comes back in return. I know that!!! But I'm really interested in what you'd do if they gave you the big bucks to make the decisions. Would you trade for a dman?......

Who's Gonna Score Our Goals This Year?

Last year, I struggled to predict how we were going to get over 200 goals from our lineup, and to my wonderful surprise, we ended up with 249. So I went through the lineup including players I think...

I hate comparing players... but Coots / Z'jad...

I was looking at the Flyers Sbnation page and reflecting on Coutourier or Coots as they call him. I really hate comparing players because the labels we stamp on players make it so difficult for...

Development Camp Scrimmage Brings Some Surprises

I've been whining alot about our lack of depth on defence since Rundblad got dealt. Well, help is on the way. The Sensplex was jammed to the rafters, and the only spot I could find where I could...

Sens Draft Preview

I’m really itchy for the draft to happen already. I’ve been following the draft very closely for many years, and this year is VERY different from other years. Mock drafts are all over the place in...

The Price for Foligno Just Went Up!

It's frightening to see that David Jones just signed for $16 million over four years. Foligno is not exactly Jones' equal on the goalscoring sheet but I can just imagine the conversation between...

Our style won't win us any playoff series

I know that alot of you won't like hearing this, but the Sens style of hockey, even though it is an exciting style is not a style that is going to win us any playoff series. We won the majority of...

Shoring up the defence

In my ten years of coaching hockey from Atom to Bantam AA, I found that the best way to build a team was to have a great goalie and build a strong defence, and the goals would come. Anytime the...

There's alot to learn watching the Pens / Flyers

I just marvel at how these two organizations built their teams. Mostly I love how the Penguins are built. They handled goaltending in the draft. They handled offence by getting strong down the...

Lots of teams have "rebuilding envy"

Geez, what’s taking us so long? That’s what several teams are saying when they look at the Sens. As I look at the season as a whole, there are so many positives. Spezza, Michalek, Greening,...

Other Ways to Build a Team

Last week-end I watched as Dougie Hamilton and Jamie Oleksiak took apart the Ottawa 67s and I was left thinking that maybe the best way of improving the Sens right now would be to go after some...

The No-trade Deadline

In this Internet-crazed age, we are so starved for headlines that we create them even when there are no headlines to create. As an example, Eklund of Hockeybuzz has been spinning yarns daily about...

Where is this Glut of Defencemen?

I noticed two things in the paper this morning. We are 29th in the league in GA and 5th from the bottom in GA in the AHL. On top of that, our strength is "supposed to be" our tremendous depth on...

The Illusion That We Are Deep Defensively

The post about what we think we need in the upcoming draft brought out the response that people thought that the lowest priority was the defence. So far this year, the evidence points elsewhere....

It's Really Tough to be a Top Six Guy

Training Camp is a Sham

Alot to learn from the Preds

The Sens have a lot to learn from watching the Preds. Here's a team with relatively little talent who have IMO the best coach in the NHL. Trotz uses what he has and has a great defensively sound...

Goaltending is the only thing!
