That trend just may continue with forward Bobby Ryan, who will be playing on the last year of his current contract in 2014-15. Sens brass has reportedly made several offers to Ryan, but the pending unrestricted free agent hasn't agreed to any of them yet. According to Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa...

Marc Methot Wants To Stay In Ottawa But Do The Senators Want Him?

from Don Brennan of the Ottawa Sun, The Senators and Marc Methot are just $300,000 per year apart in negotiations on a contract extension. It seems to be either a very workable gap or an excuse for Ottawa to solve its blueline logjam by trading the veteran defenceman. Methot is beginning to think the latter. "It's at the stage where I'm really not comfortable...

Eugene Melnyk Speaks on Toronto Airwaves: Lockout, Money, Expectations

Whenever Ottawa Senators owner Eugene Melnyk makes an appearance on the Fan 590‘s ‘Prime Time Sports’, it’s always a relatively interesting affair – mostly because the hosts do an exceptional job poking, prodding or manipulating the owner to go off on tangents, say over the top things or riff on whatever’s been bothering him lately. So with that in mind, it was incredibly...

Here’s what the NHL’s new trapezoid looks like

One of the many rule changes the NHL rolled out for 2014-15 is the expansion of the trapezoid. By adding a couple of feet to both sides of the shape behind the goaltender’s net, the hope is that play will be kept at a higher pace as goalies play the puck out rather than having to wait for their defensemen to retrieve it. The Ottawa Senators recently painted their ice, giving us...

Dunn searches for fine line between what's fair and foul

Vincent Dunn makes no apologies about being the biggest pest in the arena, the guy whose nasty reputation keeps opponents looking over their shoulders when he’s on the ice. Being a nuisance is his golden ticket to the big leagues. So, watching his involvement in a mild dust-up during a practice with his peers at the Ottawa Senators rookie camp Friday was far from a shocker. During...
