ERIC GRYBA NEWS

Looking at Ottawa’s Defense

At the team’s end of season press conference two seasons ago, hot on the heels of the Sens’ playoff rollercoaster ride that started with triumph over the Habs and ended with a crushing defeat at the hands of the Penguins, Bryan Murray boldly declared that he would be looking to add a top six forward with a bit of experience to the lineup. Murray’s position seemed somewhat justified...

Montreal's tough character stands as lesson on winning in playoffs

Brendan Gallagher is typically one of the shortest-statured players on the ice, but his resilience against some of the biggest and toughest players in the league showed why Montreal beat Ottawa in the first round of the playoffs. The Globe and Mail writer Sean Gordon pointed to the Canadiens' willingness to take hits as one of the keys to Montreal's success, and an Eric Gryba hit...

The 0-2 Hole

You never want to be fall behind and be in an 0-2 hole. In baseball, the statistical probability of successfully getting on base or delivering a hit is significantly smaller than when the batter gets ahead in the count and for the Ottawa Senators, they have never won a playoff series in the eight instances in which they have fallen behind two games to none. I was convinced the...

Friday's best: Canadiens seize control; Caps avoid big hole against Islanders

NHL PLAYOFFS ROUNDUP: FRIDAY'S BEST Best game: Montreal 3, Ottawa 2 (OT). The Canadiens seized control of their first-round series with Ottawa, but it took extra time to grab a 2-0 series lead. Ottawa defenseman Patrick Wiercioch scored on the power play with 6:35 left in regulation to force overtime, keeping the Cinderella Senators' hopes alive for tying the series before it shifts...

Bryan Murray Speaks Twice

Considering the Senators followed through with an incredibly quiet trade deadline, there was lots of meaty goodness to get to in Bryan Murray’s two availabilities today. His general media availability at the Canadian Tire Centre at 3:30 pm and his radio interview on TSN 1200 shed some light on some issues while also raising a lot of questions. To check out the Murray media availability...

Senators weren’t happy with “yappy” Blues

The Blues-Senators game on Tuesday night was a feisty one. The Blues were defeated in a shootout after coughing up a two-goal lead, but the whole night may be remembered for all of the big hits and a memorable Ryan Reaves fight with Eric Gryba. Gryba wasn’t too pleased with all of the “yappy” Blues, as seen in the Ottawa Citizen. You can only take so much yapping from some...

No Supplementary Discipline For Gryba

In last night’s important 5-2 victory over the Columbus Blue Jackets, Eric Gryba was handed a match penalty and game misconduct with 11:56 left on the clock in the second period for his hard hit on Blue Jackets center Artem Anisimov. After his drop pass that left the puck in close proximity to his feet, Anisimov left himself vulnerable to a hit. There’s no question that Gryba...

Eric Gryba Re-Signs: 2 Years, $2.5 Million

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...

Paul MacLean Speaks: Garbage Bag Day at CTC

With the Senators’ season concluding with the team’s 3-2 shootout victory in Pittsburgh last night, the players arrived at the Canadian Tire Centre to pack up their belongings and prepare for what’s shaping up to be a long offseason.

Hockey fights of the week

Welcome to our second to last installment of Hockey Fights of the Week of the 2013-14 season.

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 wonderful...
