I think it's safe to say that if David Dziurzynski had not been knocked out March 6 vs Toronto, Kaspars Daugavins would not have been waived yesterday. But instead we saw a reactionary trade for Matt Kassian, and a useful depth player waived and then claimed by a superior team. AJ Jakubec suggested yesterday afternoon that the reasoning behind the waiving was a complaint about ice time: Kaspars Daugavins wasn't happy as a healthy scratch and those sentiments were expressed to the Sens brass. He'll get plenty of ice in Bingo. — AJ Jakubec (@AJonSports) March 26, 2013 Prior to the Kassian trade, Daugavins played in 17/26 games, since the trade he'd played in 2/7. Essentially Daugavins was being scratched for a guy who plays 5 minutes a night and seldom sees the ice in the third period.

Ottawa Now A Sub-50 Possession Team

Producing 13 shots at home is never going to help you with a metric dependent on shot attempts. So while last night's game was particularly poor and not really representative, the trend of the graph is clear. With Karlsson the Senators were taking 53.0% of the shot attempts in score close situations, the past 19 games without Karlsson they've been taking 47.5%. League...
