Found September 19, 2013 on The 6th Sens:
Off to a 2-0 start to this preseason, Senators GM Bryan Murray made an appearance on The Drive yesterday afternoon.  There were a few items that Bryan touched upon that I didn't include in this transcript -- like yesterday morning's tragic bus/train crash and his family history -- but they are definitely worth listening to. So I highly recommend checking the full interview by clicking here, or by streaming the embedded audio below. As always, my thoughts will be in bold. On the number of positive things that have happened over the past week… “Yeah, it’s a lot of things happening in a short order here – which are good things for the most part. We played well in both preseason games for the most part, again. Jason (Spezza) taking over as captain, I think we’re going to get a guy that’s highly motivated – that will be real good for our young players in particular.

Senators forward Bobby Ryan 'owes' Leafs coach Randy Carlyle

Senators’ Bryan Murray Talks Senators Captaincy, Potential Trades

Ottawa Senators' GM spoke with the Team 1200 Ottawa about the team's new (post-Alfredsson) leadership group, and in particular the 8th Captain in the modern history of the franchise, Jason Spezza. Listen here Murray revealed that he asked Spezza some important questions that he needed to get answers to before he was given the captaincy. No doubt this would include fishing...

Lists? I Like Lists: More ESPN Organizational Prospect Rankings

This site has devoted its share of attention to annual prospect and or organizational prospect rankings, so it makes sense to examine two separate ESPN Insider articles. The first is a Corey Pronman piece (note: paywall) that assesses and ranks each NHL organization based upon its collection of talent aged 23 or younger. Unlike his organization prospect rankings that were...
