Questions Remain For The Ottawa Senators

from Ken Warren of the Ottawa Citizen, In the Senators perfect world, Spezza would have been dealt at the NHL draft for a package of players and prospects that the organization could sell as the next stage for the franchise.

Daniel Sedin gets dinged in Heritage Classic

Vancouver Canucks forward Daniel Sedin left the second period of the Heritage Classic after what I can only describe as a genuinely inoccuous and awkward hit delivered by Senators defenseman Marc Methot. It looked like Sedin either hit the boards right-knee-first or that his right skate slipped out from under him, but he grabbed his left hamstring/quad immediately:

Looks like Ottawa Sens GM Bryan Murray deserves a pat on his back

Give Bryan Murray credit for patience. The Senators GM has done a lot of talking in the last month trying to make deals, but he's resisted offers for players like Mika Zibanejad, Zack Smith, Jared Cowen and Marc Methot when they've come in discussions with other teams. While the Senators are willing to move other players on the roster, they'd rather not part with the...

Senators need a break in more ways than one

Marc Methot was supposed to have a nice afternoon Saturday. First, he thought he’d picked up his first ever power play goal and first multi-goal game in 355 National Hockey League contests. And he must have thought that would be enough to propel his team to its first win in three tries. Little did he know, the NHL would take that power play goal away after the game (Kyle Turris...

For the seventh time since going on a three-game win streak in the second week of November, the Senators lost after winning their previous game. As Ian Mendes would be happy to point out, the Senators have historically been a streaky team under Paul MacLean, but for whatever reason, their inability to string together wins is putting the team in a position in which the margin...
