Eric Gryba agrees to 2-year deal with OTT. $1.2M and $1.3M. — Bob McKenzie (@TSNBobMcKenzie) June 26, 2014 The deal is also reportedly a one-way contract. Re-signing Gryba was a bit of a formality since he was one of the Senators’ three remaining restricted free agents (yeah, I’m ignoring Stephane Da Costa), but there are so many defencemen on the parent NHL roster or on the...

Bryan Murray On The Senators Season

from Ken Warren of Senators Extra, In Tuesday’s post-mortem on what went so wrong with his team this season, he was an open book about a club that started slowly and only found a degree of consistency when the season was already lost. He had some harsh words for the work of coach Paul MacLean, saying his approach to players must change. He said captain Jason Spezza’s...

Hockey fights of the week

Welcome to our second to last installment of Hockey Fights of the Week of the 2013-14 season. As we’ve discussed in the past, teams are doing more fighting in the standings than they are on the ice as the season winds down.

Senators' Gryba most logical choice as trade bait

When Bryan Murray decided to do some work in his office at Canadian Tire Centre rather than travel with the Senators for their game against the Blue Jackets, almost immediately the detectives among us assumed he was closing in on the trade he'd like to make before the Olympic break.

Taking A Look At Player Usage

A big part of coaching is finding the right roles for your players to play in to maximize their effectiveness. Being a free-flowing game where each team has four forward lines and three defense pairings, hockey is a sport that is big on player roles. Therefore, when analyzing players' talent, we should always take into consideration how they are used. With the help of the...
