As if the Battle of Ontario didn't have enough spice already Bobby Ryan's arrival has added another subplot.
The new Senators winger will get his first glimpse of the Battle of Ontario in a pre-season version of the provincial rivalry as the Toronto Maple Leafs arrive at the Canadian Tire Centre Thursday night.
But Ryan 26 is familiar with Toronto coach Randy Carlyle from being together with the Anaheim Ducks and while there's mutual respect they won't be spending any time in the hallway after the game catching up.
"We're not going to say hello or anything but it certainly won't be something where I'm aiming a puck at the bench. That's for sure ... That's not going to cross my mind at all" said Ryan with a smile Wednesday.
Carlyle and Ryan didn't always see eye-to-eye during their four years together with the Ducks. Carlyle demanded that Ryan be part of the program and that's a big reason why his name always lingered in trade...

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...
As a hockey news source, ESPN has some utility. Pierre Lebrun is generally regarded as one of the best in the business and occasionally, Craig Custance will put out some Sens-centric piece that is worthy of a read and with the addition of Corey Pronman as a full-time prospect evaluator is invaluable in itself, there is some value to be had investing in an ESPN Insider’s account…...

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...

Bryan Murray spoke to the Team 1200 yesterday to talk about some of the current stuff in play with the Ottawa Senators. As always, T6S did a great job of transcribing it all.
The OS and KK also had a small tidbit on where Ottawa is heading with respect to a number of their non-waiver exempt players. We know there's a numbers game in play here, and regardless of who the team...
The Ottawa Senators lost to the Toronto Maple Leafs, 3-2, in their third of what seems to be a hundred preseason games scheduled this season.
I don't know if it's the year layoff from last year's lockout or what, but the number of exhibitions leading into this year's season seems excessive. I know it's a chance for front offices and coaching staffs to get a...
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...
