Robin Lehner’s piranha are named after Ottawa beat writers

It’s always interesting seeing what sort of relationship a player has with the various local reporters in charge of covering their team. Most players and reporters seem to have a fairly respectful relationship, with both sides reaching a mutual agreement on boundaries and confidentiality. In other cases, reporters develop a pretty bad reputation for latching on to information or...

Jason Spezza and Paul MacLean Not On Same Page?

Throughout the course of the season, one prevailing theme has been the disconnect or the inability to deliver a coordinated and consistent message. Whether it’s been Eugene Melnyk, Cyril Leeder, Bryan Murray, the coaching staff or the players, Senators fans have been inundated with contradictory statements and conflicting messages. Not only has it been maddeningly unnerving, it’s...

Senators still in it, but will need some help

Senators Content to ‘Ride With Spezza as the Main Guy’?

As the Ottawa Senators’ 2013-14 season swirls around the drain, there is this instinctual response for fans to question (after vomiting on this abomination of a season) and develop their own ideas on how the Senators organization can best approach the offseason to ensure its present and future success. It’s a rite of passage at this time of year and considering the contractual...

Insider Trading Talks Hemsky

During last night’s hockey broadcast on TSN, their “experts panel” discussed a number of player situations in which teams are looking to extend impending UFAs before they hit the open market in July.

Karlsson Speaks Candidly to Aftonbladet: Divorce, Loss of Friends/Teammates in 2013

Swedish newspapers get all the scoops. After bringing Senators fans the infamous Andre Petersson interview in which he cracked on Binghamton and the KISS photo, Aftonbladet has now published the most introspective Erik Karlsson interview that I’ve probably ever seen that didn’t involve Karlsson eating a meal with Ian Mendes at IKEA. Karlsson, if you’ll recall, went weeks...

Alfie’s Return to Ottawa Recap 12.01.2013

Spoiler Alert: Alfie scored. Totally got the goal that iced the game for us, an empty netter that put us up 4-2 with about a minute left. The nail in the coffin. The dagger in the heart. The Cooke skate-blade on the heal of Erik Karlsson. The arrow through the heart. The bullet through Lincoln’s cranium. He also had an assist, and if you did not catch the pregame tribute by the...

Sens beats Canes for 3rd straight win

Alive, but barely. This is no April Fool’s joke, the Senators moved to within four points of the final wild card spot in the East with a 2-1 shootout victory over the Carolina Hurricanes Monday night.

Senators Sign Collegiate UFA Garrett Thompson to ELC

New Trade Partner for Spezza Emerges, Thoughts on Wiercioch

In Bruce Garrioch’s vaunted Sunday column, he identified the Anaheim Ducks and St. Louis Blues as two teams that called on the Senators’ Jason Spezza at the NHL’s trade deadline on March 5th.

TSN’s Brent Wallace Gets Candid On ‘In The Box’

TSN’s Brent Wallace rarely makes appearances on TSN 1200 radio, but when he does, he becomes the most interesting man in the world.
