The Senators announced a press conference for this morning at 9:15 am in which Bryan Murray and Eugene Melnyk would be in attendance. With news that NHL commissioner Gary Bettman was also in town — Bettman reportedly was speaking with Parliamentarians about the NHL’s deal with Rogers — rumours have abounded that the Senators may announce some kind of announcement on an outdoor...
On the final day of Ottawa's season, coach Paul MacLean stood before the assembled media and acknowledged the obvious: Almost everything that could go wrong did, and across-the-board improvements were imperative.
''I think in the National Hockey League you have to play well enough, long enough to qualify for the Stanley Cup playoffs,'' MacLean said. ''...

From Senators practice today:
Ryan is working on a pp unit with Michalek and Zibanejad, but before you think that could be No. 1 combo, Karlsson is on the other pp #sens

On the Karlsson pp unit is Turris (at the point), MacArthur, Legwand and Stone #sens

The clock is ticking on the Senators' captaincy debate.
By this time next week, the Senators will be on the ice in Nashville preparing for their first game of the regular season against the Predators next Thursday at the Bridgestone Arena.
You'd think by then, the Senators will have made a choice one way or another on whether they're going to award the 'C' worn...

As training camp continues and fans restlessly dwell on the latest happenings and tweaks to the Senators’ line combinations, “What do you mean Colin Greening was getting a regular turn on the team’s top line with Kyle Turris and Clarke MacArthur yesterday in practice?!?!”, a surprisingly sober (no seriously, why was Greening getting a turn on the top line?)

The walking wounded are closing in on a return.
While J.G. Pageau was back on the ice Saturday at the Canadian Tire Centre, forwards Erik Condra and Milan Michalek along with defencemen Marc Methot and Eric Gryba were still missing in action.
Coach Paul MacLean said he is hopeful Michalek, Condra and Gryba will resume skating Monday with the Senators. There is no timetable for...
Forward Jean-Gabriel Pageau is expected to return to the ice Saturday after missing Friday to nurse an injury.
The same can’t be said for Marc Methot, Eric Gryba or Milan Michalek – all three are expected to miss Saturday’s practices at the team’s Fan Fest nursing various injuries.
“It’s purely (the organization’s) decision to keep them out,” coach Paul MacLean...
Listening to this afternoon’s edition of TSN 1200’s ‘In the Box’, hosts Jason York and Steve Lloyd played up the pairing of Jared Cowen and Cody Ceci – going so far as to say that this duo is unquestionably the one that the Senators want to open the season with as their second defensive pairing.
If true, it puts an interesting, but uncomfortable position. Given the state...
from Don Brennan of the Ottawa Sun,
Methot couldn't participate in Friday's skate test, but practised Saturday and played in Sunday's intra-squad game. He has not participated in any of the team's four exhibitions since, nor was he able to take part in Thursday's practice.
While negotiations on a contract extension for Methot have hit a standstill, there...

The Ottawa Senators were playing it safe when it came to the health of Bobby Ryan. Ryan collided with Kyle Turris on Sunday and hit his head. He was held out for the rest of the scrimmage and did not play in Monday's split preseason game. #480673297 / gettyimages.comRyan was kept off the ice after it appeared he had his 'bell rung' and he is not suffering from any...
Sportnet‘s Elliotte Friedman (and boy does it still feel weird to write that) published his latest ’30 Thoughts’ article and for the benefit of hockey fans in the nation’s capital, there were four thoughts pertaining to the Ottawa Senators.
Shockingly, all of them had to do with the situations involving the uncertain futures of Marc Methot and Bobby Ryan.
So let’s just...

from Don Brennan of the OTtawa Sun,
Top scoring right winger Bobby Ryan was held out of the last half of Sunday's red-white match after he had his "bell rung" in a collision with his centre, Kyle Turris.
Ryan won't play in either of Monday's pre-season games against the New York Islanders, as doctors want to make sure he doesn't experience any concussion...
As with the many miscellaneous injuries that crop up during training camp and exhibition games, it’s important to note that NHL teams are especially cautious when the contests mean little to a big chunk of players involved. Even so, it’s worth noting that the Ottawa Senators are keeping an eye on Bobby Ryan‘s condition.
He was held out the remainder of Sunday’s scrimmage...
It was only a practice, a split-squad practice at that, but Alex Chiasson says he felt some jitters before stepping on the ice Saturday with his new Ottawa Senators teammates for the first time.
“To be honest, I did have a little bit of butterflies coming into this,” said Chiasson, the one NHL player included in the trade which sent Jason Spezza to the Dallas Stars on Canada...
- Cody Ceci is taking nothing for granted.
Despite playing 49 games for Ottawa last season as a rookie, the former first rounder knows there are some numbers working against him.
Seven other defenceman have one-way contracts while Ceci is still on his entry level deal. That means he can be sent to Binghamton without having to clear waivers.
