Can't wait for the horrific Ottawa Sun puns when he's finally on the big club. I wonder how many times they'll use "Lazarbeam"?

"Or maybe it’s just that I don’t care."
Couldn't we just leave it at that? Done Brennan is a scumbag.

Nice read. Hockey aside, he may have been the most involved Senator in terms of helping the community (box for sick kids).
1 month, 3 weeks ago on Wade Redden Announces his Retirement
"...they stand to lose Jason Spezza, Milan Michalek, Daniel Alfredsson, Clarke MacArthur, Bobby Ryan, Stefan Noesen, Jakob Silfverberg and a 2014 first round pick over a two-year period without having anything to show for it."
This bit scared the shit out of me. Should have a disclaimer for that paragraph!
1 month, 3 weeks ago on Tim Murray - The Next GM of the Buffalo Sabres
Was wondering why he just wouldn't say "Of course" to the jersey retirement question as well.
Really don't like his last answer, which sounds like a resounding 'no' shrouded in "yes, but only if it's an absolutely ideal situation". Sounds like he said 'dollar in, dollar out', then tried to placate the increasingly expectant and angry fanbase.

I think my panic button is jammed.
Would you say it's time for Sens fans to crack open each others' heads and feast on the goo inside?

Trade clause or not, even if the myriad of other factors worked (budget, desirability of our assets, no #1 pick, budget...) in our favour, I just can't see the guy using a stack of $100s as a cell phone in a Vegas penthouse ending up in Ottawa.
But yeah... I don't think there's anything not to like about Kane, except for what we'd have to give up to get him.
Also, I'd imagine approximately 26-28 other teams would be interested in him.

I love how he jumps around so much. It's like he gets so excited when speaking that he has to jump ship instead of finishing his thought. Can't speak quickly enough!

Oooops, I meant #1
5 months, 2 weeks ago on The 6th Sens Photoshop Contest Submissions
A lot of good ones to choose from, but I have to go with #2. Really looks Karlsson look like an ecstatic 5 year old.
There's such thing as a SINGLE Golden Palace eggroll?

I was expecting a one-word (starts with "n") blog in response to this title.
9 months ago on Should The Sens Pursue Bryan Bickell?
I hear a lot of fans complaining about league bias against us, and I know that's bullshit, but they have a point. Rule 48 states: A hit resulting in contact with an opponent's head where the head is targeted and the principal point of contact is not permitted.
The thing I don't get is that Shanahan explicitly states that Gryba stepped up to deliver a clean hit (ie there was no intent to target Eller's head).
It looks to me like Shanahan has full discretion in deciding how the rule is interpreted. Seems he doesn't have to follow the language of the rule.
I still fell like the injury/blood are the only things that caused the actual suspension. Had Eller got right up and not been bleeding, there would have been no penalty.

Also, it's hard to argue with picking up a 23 year old who instantly becomes your leading scorer.
11 months, 1 week ago on Breaking: Ben Bishop Traded to the Tampa Bay Lightning
I could see Bishop getting better and possibly even becoming an elite goalie (26 is still pretty young for a tender and his NHL career is just starting).
I've heard a lot of good things about Conacher. A quick playmaker who will go into dirty areas with Loewenesque tenacity. I've heard he's somewhat of a liability defensively, but if that's true, I'd imagine MacLean will sort that out.
Happy to get a young player who can help us a little now and maybe a lot later. Even more happy we now have a player whose name rhymes with gory...story, allegory and Montessori!
Kovalev regrets signing with Ottawa?
Feeling is mutual, Kovi.
11 months, 2 weeks ago on Kovalev Regrets Signing with Ottawa
Just wanted to echo some of the sentiments in the comments section. This is easily the best Sens-related site on the web. It's uncommon to find anything but platitudes and meaningless clichés, let alone something unique, interesting and humorous.
Congrats and thanks!

The mere possibility of Stone, Zibanejad or Silfverberg joining the Sens is exciting/gratuitous for fans, but I have to wonder if dressing Klinkhammer for game 2 would have been the way to go.
We really got pushed around and Klinkhammer has showed that he can play in the NHL. He hits hard and often, and you can put him in the lineup without sacrificing any speed (perhaps gaining some).
Thoughts on Colonel Klink?
1 year, 10 months ago on Coming Up Aces: Mark Stone Arrives on Sunday | April
What is this, the most boring interview ever? I know hockey players generally give bland responses to most questions, but there isn't even a single interesting tidbit to redeem this interview.
Play a full 60 minutes, one shift at a time, leave it all out on the ice, work hard, play well in all 3 zones, give 110%, push the envelope, blah blah blah...
