Is Jason booking a moving company?

This week with all the exit interviews and post mortem of the Sens season; one thing is clear to me, Jason Spezza will be moved in the offseason. I know this is a hot topic amongst Sens fans, you just have to search through Twitter and forums etc and see it is a debate that is hotly debated.  There is the line of thought that you don't trade a big number one centre, as everyone...

Money Talk In Ottawa

from James Gordon of Senators Extra, Suppose I walk into a Honda dealership looking for a new car, and my friend asks me, “Why don’t you drive a Maserati?” The response would be pretty simple: “I can’t afford it.” It certainly wouldn’t be, “just because you have money, doesn’t mean you spend it. I mean, look at what this clown is spending on his car...

Now is time for Ottawa Senators to trade Andy

The list of teams looking for a No. 1 goalie this summer will be short, but if the Senators can somehow find the right match they really should deal Craig Anderson. Potentially, they could answer some roster needs or stock up on their draft picks, plus solve a problem of their own that's soon to be brewing. This is not to lay blame for a disastrous season on Anderson, who was...

Bryan Murray On The Senators Season

from Ken Warren of Senators Extra, In Tuesday’s post-mortem on what went so wrong with his team this season, he was an open book about a club that started slowly and only found a degree of consistency when the season was already lost.

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...

Rumours have been making the rounds on the interwebs and SensChirp hinted at some of it in a post on his blog: “Something to keep an eye on this summer- there seems to be a bit of a rivalry building between the Ottawa Senators and the Buffalo Sabres and it has nothing to do with the on-ice competition. When Tim Murray left for Buffalo a couple months back, he did so with the blessing...

Spezza Mum on His Future

In a year of unfulfilled expectations for the Senators, Jason Spezza is inevitably going to shoulder a lot of the blame because he is the captain and he just happened to the guy who inherited the letter in the wake of Daniel Alfredsson’s departure. Criticisms of Spezza’s leadership aren’t anything new. Hell, criticisms of Spezza aren’t anything new either. The man’s been...
