I NOW Consider Daniel Alfredsson A Hall Of Famer

One longterm question that I like to think about is which current NHL players will make the Hockey Hall of Fame and at which point in their career have they cemented that honor regardless of what happens in the remainder of their career.  I think Daniel Alfredsson has recently surpassed this threshold.  Alfredsson is the first line right winger with the Ottawa Senators.  He...

West Coast Express: 5 Reasons to Hate the Ottawa Senators

It’s 2011 Vancouver Canucks vs. Ottawa Senators (West vs. East) smack talk time. Next up is the Sens, and Richard has 5 reasons he can’t stand their hockey team.

Did the Ottawa Senators win the Dany Heatley trade?

Bryan Murray has been summarily roasted for his work in the summer of 2009, when he sent Dany Heatley to the San Jose Sharks for the seemingly paltry return of Milan Michalek, Jonathan Cheechoo, and a 2nd round pick. It was a terribly handled situation from beginning to end, what with every ounce of it playing out publicly, from Heatley's initial trade request to Murray'...

Ian Esplen: Sens try and Intimidate, Canucks retaliate- with Goals that is

Follow me on By Last night the Senators tried to do everything in their power to play like the Bruins did last June.
