Found November 20, 2012 on The 6th Sens:
Unless the NHL lockout has completely turned you off on the prospect of following the sport, in which case I would question why you are here reading this blog in the first place, you have inevitably noticed that through his first 13 games, Mika Zibanejad is off to an underwhelming start in the AHL. Mercifully, he tallied his first goal on Friday, but with that one goal, five points and a -4 to his name, the highest Senators draft pick since Jason Spezza, is not exactly instilling confidence in a fan base that is counting heavily upon Mika and the rest of the organization’s ballyhooed pipeline. If there was NHL hockey to divert our attention or had the lack of production occurred during any other stretch of games that did not coincide with the start of the season (when his boxcar numbers remain small), it's likely these "struggles" would be a lot less significant or at the very least, would not lend themselves to the short-sighted revisionism that some are sure ...

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 Canada to this growing list. Look, I understand this need to...

Mike Fisher Forced to Hold Carrie Underwood's Purse at AMAs

Ottawa Senators player Mike Fisher is lucky enough to be dating country singing star Carrie Underwood.  That honor came with a little humor last night at the AMAs when Underwood got called on stage to get her award and handed him her purse.  He looked pretty embarrassed to be on television holding her purse and almost threw it down on her chair next to him, but decided to hang...
