Early reaction: Five teams with the best 2014 Draft classes

Now, you really, really, really cannot judge a draft until at least three, four, five years down the road. If a team is lucky, they’ve got one prospect who’s ready to play the year he’s drafted. Most draftees will continue to season in the junior leagues, or overseas, or in the minor leagues, until they’re ready for NHL action, which often times won’t be for three or four...

Stars go defensive and offensive in first round by picking Honka

One of the few needs the Dallas Stars had within their organization heading into the start of the 2014 NHL Draft in Philadelphia on Friday was a right-handed defenseman who was offensive minded and who could also quarterback the power play. Well, Stars general manager Jim Nill and company got their man with the 14th overall pick by selecting Julius Honka, an 18-year-old Finnish defenseman...

In case you haven’t noticed, the NHL’s Award Show is taking place tonight on the CBC under a one-hour taped delay (again). No Ottawa Senators players or members of the organization were expected to carry home any hardware, but one player, Erik Karlsson, did receive some significant votes in the balloting for the Norris Trophy – awarded to the player judged to be the best all...

Monday News and Notes: Spezza, Karlsson, WJHC Invites

The drama over whether Jason Spezza did or did not request a trade is just the latest undesirable micro-controversy for the organization and rips the band-aid off of the wound that still hasn’t completely healed thanks to the organization’s handling of last year’s Daniel Alfredsson situation. From the organization downplaying trade rumours of Spezza’s availability at the...

Should the Senators lean on ‘Captain’ Karlsson?

The Ottawa Sun's Don Brennan believes that the Senators should name Erik Karlsson their next captain, but Brennan's also not sure if the "C" fits: Off the ice, Karlsson also displayed a lack of maturity last season by ripping a major sponsor on Twitter, more than once. Everybody gets frustrated by phone or cable issues, but a real leader of an NHL team doesn...

MacLean says Karlsson's play 'shoddy' at times this season

Despite scoring 74 points this past season, one that began months after recovering from a sliced Achilles tendon, Erik Karlsson failed to meet Paul MacLean’s standards. While acknowledging the challenges his star defenceman faced, the Ottawa Senators coach didn’t let Karlsson off the hook for some of his questionable defensive play. "Offensively, he’s gifted.

With Or Without You – The Jason Spezza and Erik Karlsson Effect

At Paul MacLean’s final media availability last week, he made an interesting comment about how the Ottawa Senators have established a goal to cut their goals against total by a cool 50 goals. “Well I think we have to change our approach and find somewhere in between as a coach. But also, we have to get to what the identity (is) of our team. We want to be a team that plays fast...

Erik's Achilles

With the end of the season this weekend for the Senators, the miserable season that was has come to a close.  Scoring a pair of wins on the weekend allowed for the team to move up in the standings and have that first rounder to the Ducks likely not sting as much as well.  I was sick on Saturday night and slept through the Leafs game, and then I watched the Pittsburgh game and wished...

Senators goalie Robin Lehner stole the show in 2-1 win over New Jersey Devils

On Fan Appreciation Night, the Senators were at least able to serve up a victory. Erik Karlsson scored in the shootout to give the Senators a 2-1 victory to push the New Jersey Devils to 0-12 in the skills competition in front of a sellout of 19,240 at the Canadian Tire Centre. Robin Lehner’s 38 saves in regulation were the reason this one got to a shootout in the first place...

Dwelling on Erik Karlsson’s D

Senators' Karlsson setting offensive standard

Erik Karlsson, it seems, is good for at least a point every night. But the fact is, heading into Tuesday's meeting with the Florida Panthers, the Senators star defenceman had been held off the score sheet 25 times this season. That only makes his totals more remarkable. Karlsson extended his consecutive-game point-scoring streak to eight by setting up Mark Stone for second...
