Found June 26, 2013 on The 6th Sens:
With the NHL Draft right around the corner, the Ottawa Senators had a massive media availability involving GM Bryan Murray, Assistant GM Tim Murray and Director of Player Personnel, monsieur Pierre Dorion. Readers can access videos to each of the respective interviews by accessing the Sens TV page on the official Senators' website, but if you want to read a transcript of what was said, you've come to the right place.  As always, my comments will be in bold.  Up first, Mr. Bryan Murray.  On being confident if the organization stands pat with the seventeenth overall selection… “Well, there are certainly players that we believe will be there and certainly have an option. I think there’s some prospects that are legitimate prospects that bring some of the ingredients that we’re looking for. If we were picking (first overall) it’d be different, but we think in the first round, there’s a good supply of players.” On the team’s prospective chances of moving up i...

Travis Yost: Michalek Was With Kobe Shootin' in the Gym

Make sure to follow Travis on Twitter! -- Interesting little tidbit coming from Ottawa's general manager on Tuesday. His comments about Daniel Alfredsson's future and the decision he expects to receive from the Swedish winger on Friday will get the most attention, but I was more intrigued with his commentary on one Milan Michalek.

Senators will wait on Alfressson, but they won’t wait too long

The Ottawa Sun's Bruce Garrioch reports that the Ottawa Senators understand that Daniel Alfredsson wants to take his time making a decision as to whether he will continue playing, but as an unrestricted free agent-to-be going into a summer where the salary cap's declining, "Take all the time you need" means "please decide by next Friday": Daniel Alfredsson...

Sens Don’t Extend Qualifying Offer To Louie Caporusso by   Steven Ellis

The Ottawa Senators offered qualifying deals to forwards Stephane Da Costa, Mike Hoffman, Corey Cowick and David Dziurzynski and defenseman Mark Borowiecki. One forward, however, was left off the list, and that guy would be Loui Caporusso. Caporusso was a third-round pick (No. 90 overall) by the Ottawa Senators in the 2007 draft but had a tough time cracking the Binghamton [...]

Adams Trophy Voting Makes No Sense

When I wrote about the (partial) NHL Award announcements, there were a few awards that I wanted to discuss in further detail.  One was the Adams Trophy for coach of the year.  It was won by Paul MacLean of the Ottawa Senators.  The coach of the year voting is never well done.  The voters tend to support the coach of the most improved team or a team that otherwise exceeded...

Michalek Undergoes Treatment For Chronic Knee Problem

from Wayne Scanlan of Senators Extra, If it’s good enough for Kobe Bryant and Tiger Woods, it’s good enough for Milan Michalek. Like the NBA and golfing stars named above, the Ottawa Senators winger visited Germany for unique treatment of his chronic knee problem. On Tuesday, while meeting media prior to the NHL draft this weekend, Senators general manager Bryan Murray...
