The gas prices are getting so crazy in Ontario at least, that I believe it is time to boycott a gas company. I think a month of national boycotting would send a message and should bring down the price of gas. My understanding is we do not buy Lybian oil but due to the uprising happening over there, it is being used as an excuse to raise gas prices over here.

There is something definately wrong here and nothing will change unless we get their attention.

Shock and Awe!!!!

Top Prospects & Binghamton Senators / Upcoming 2011 draft
« on: March 02, 2011, 01:22:34 PM »
I was on another site that has a poll asking which player do you think Ottawa should take with their 1st pick Overall. The choices are, Adam Larsson, Gabriel Landeskog, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, and Sean Couturier. The choice that holds 50% of the vote is Gabriel Landeskog who is a great pick but IMHO I feel we should be taking a center. I personally like Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, the reason I would want a center is we have never had a "TRUE" No.2 center to compliment our No.1 center. If you go back as far as you want in past Stanley cup champs you will find that they all had 1 thing in common, they were deep down the middle. I.E Sakic\Forsberg compared to Spezza\Fisher, you get the picture.

What do you think?

I'm not sure if anyone else has previously posted this site, if so, I apologize for the repetition.

Sens Talk / Spezza is being shopped around the league

I heard on the team yesterday that it was talked about on the Hot Stove Saturday night. Al Strahcan and Scotty Morrison both confirmed this.

My Christmas just got a whole lot better!!!!!

Sens Talk / Rogers and Sens preseason
« on: September 20, 2008, 08:03:06 AM »
I thought I would post this for anyone that might be interested

Ottawa Senators pre-season hockey is back on Rogers TV.

The local community television station will present a pair of Molson Senators Pre-Season Hockey telecasts from Scotiabank Place in the next week: Saturday at 7 p.m. against the New York Rangers and again on Sept. 24, when the Philadelphia Flyers pay a visit to the nation's capital (also a 7 p.m. start).

Ed Hand provides the play-by-play commentary, with colour commentator Lee Versage, former Senators forward Shaun Van Allen and Ian Mendes, the host of Molson Senators Overtime and Rogers Sportsnet's Senators beat reporter, filling out the broadcast crew.

"Sens fans can count on Rogers TV (Channel 22) for th exclusive first look at this year's new Ottawa Senators," said station manager Ray Skaff. "This pre-season coverage is a powerful way of kicking off our new jam-packed sports schedule and a demonstration of our commitment to being Ottawa's local sports authority."

With TSN carrying the Senators' matchup against the Montreal Canadiens on Sept. 27, all of Ottawa's home pre-season games will be available to fans on television.

Sens Talk / Can't believe someone would actually do this

Do we really need to give the Penguins more incentive. The person or persons behind this should be fired!!!!!

Sens Talk / Who was Murray talking about!!?
« on: April 12, 2008, 09:05:15 AM »
During yesterday's pregame presser, Murray was talking about Volchenkov and how he was going to play thru the pain because A-Trian said it's the playoffs.

He then added to the affect " I wish he would talk to some other guys on the team"

Who was he talking about? I'd really like to know

After watching Gerber be Ottawa's best player yet again, Emery has to be thinking "I wish I wasn't such an ass@#$% and just got ready for the season".

Whatever happens this year as far as the team goes in the playoffs the rainbow at the end of the season for me, outside of winning the cup,  is that this  prima dona is gone along with Redden.

Here's to better days ahead..... :drink: :drink: :drink:

How can we have made it to SCF last year and be in the situation were are looking right now, I mean were hearing that we need more scoring, more toughness, our goaltending sucks. How have we fallen so far?

IMHO I can't see Murray making more then 1 more trade, and there isn't a No.1 goalie out there to be had, so were stuck with what we have.

On the other hand I wouldn't mind getting an Adam foote he's a proven winner and he showed the other night the type of game he would bring to this team or maybe a Sundin he's big and can still play.

I very perplexed.

Where's Dagwood with his calming demeanor in all this?

Sens Talk / Can we win with what we have in net?
« on: February 13, 2008, 08:14:42 PM »
I like everyone else am very excited about the recent trade made by Mr. Murray, but I have a concern about our goaltending. We are now in February and it is still a major issue with The Sens. I heard on the Team 1200 an emailer wrote, why not trade Gerber and Emery to Chicago for Khabibulin and Lalime. I could handle Lalime back in a Sens uni so long as he is not the starter.

I highly doubt this will happen, but just the same I am not at all comfortable with what we currently have heading into the trade deadline and beyond. Maybe last year was a career year for Emery and he's not going to get any better, regardless I personally can't see us getting out of the 2nd round if our goaltending is not brought up to where it has to be to make a run in the playoffs.

Sens Talk / How long will the Muckler Reign haunt Ottawa?
« on: July 01, 2007, 04:09:08 PM »
Based on comments on TSN today Ottawa is the team that is the most worse off heading into the Free agent Frenzy. Signings that I hated when they were done are now coming home to roost. Schaefer, Redden, Gerber and Corvo salaries will cost Ottawa 14.95M next year.

Here are the total combined stats from 2006-2007 for the 3 skaters, their combine salary is 11.25M. 

  GP    Goals   Assists    Pts    +\-
 217     27        72       99     23

Sidney Crosby and Joe Thornton together will make a combined 10.9M next year

Gerbers' numbers  3.7M         

  GP   W    L    OT    GAA     SV%
  29   15    9     3     2.78    .906

Can someone please justify how Schaefer is making more money then Fisher?

Thanks for the memories John


Sens Talk / Check this out very interesting!!!!
« on: May 19, 2007, 05:32:26 PM »
Two interesting tidbits....

1) In every year ending with a "7" (1997, 1987, etc), only a Canadian team or the Detroit Red Wings have won the Stanley Cup.

 1927 - Ottawa Senators

1937 - Detroit Red Wings

1947 - Toronto Maple Leafs

1957 - Montreal Canadiens

1967 - Toronto Maple Leafs

1977 - Montreal Canadiens

1987 - Edmonton Oilers

1997 - Detroit Red Wings

2007 - ????


2) King Clancy was traded from Ottawa to Toronto back in the 20s. When he found out of the trade, he was so angry that he "cursed" the Senators on his way out the door saying, "The Ottawa Senators will never win another Stanley Cup until 20-years after I'm dead".


King Clancy (1903-1986)

Sens Talk / Phillips and Volchenkov for 6M a year
« on: April 11, 2007, 01:44:07 PM »
I have always been a Muckler basher but I like what he got done here. Now I ask would you trade both Phillips and Volchenkov 6M/year for Redden 6.5M/year or Chara 7M/year. Head scratcher isn't it. Now once the season is over and we've had our Stanley Cup winning parade. Depending on who is our GM, maybe we can start cleaning house.

But the playoffs are here baby :G: :O: :S: :E: :N: :S2: :G: :O:


General Hockey Discussions / Is anyone organizing a playoff?
« on: April 08, 2007, 08:27:45 AM »
If so, i would like to get in.

If this guy is still Gm next year I will no longer be a sens fan until he leaves. I just don't know what to say about him anymore  :icon_hissyfit2: :icon_hissyfit2: :icon_hissyfit2: :icon_hissyfit2: :icon_hissyfit2: :icon_hissyfit2: :icon_hissyfit2: :icon_hissyfit2: :icon_hissyfit2: :icon_hissyfit2: :icon_hissyfit2:

General Hockey Discussions / Instigator rule are you for it or against it?
« on: February 20, 2007, 05:04:07 PM »
I personally am against, I feel it has changed the way the game has played. I was watching Off The Record yesterday and Cam Neely who was a guest was asked if and how it affected his game. He generally said it changed his game completely as far as how to react to someone who was taking liberties towards his teammates, because he didn't want to put is team in trouble getting the extra penalty.

A stat I would like to see if anyone has the resources to find it is, if we can go back to and starting with the 1978-79 season to 1991-92 inclusive before the instigator rule was brought into the league by then commisioner Mr. Zeigler in 1992-93, and then see how many man games were lost to the star players from 1992-93 to 2005-2006 season inclusive. Both scenarios equal 13 years to keep it as fair as possible.

I think we will find that the instigator rule created an open season on the leagues star players, not sure but it will be interesting to find out.

There's nothing like the thought of getting pummulled to keep a player honest. I won't lie I love to see a good scrap so long as it's motivated by a moment of passion in the game, or a fight that breaks out when a player is going after someone who has taken liberties on one of your players, i.e the running of Gerber, when the guy came out of the penalty box there should have been a reception line waiting for him.

But the staged fights where 2 goons decide there going to fight for the sake of fighting they should be tossed that's a waste of time, too much WWF or whatever.

He wouldn't look bad in a Sens uni if he's healthy again depending on the price of course. But before anybody brings up the garbage that comes with him we don't have to look any further then our own roster right, you know what I'm talking about the Hossa deal. I don't want to open up a can of worms, I'm just talking on ice, he could be a great addition, big nasty and can put the puck in the net.


We can be the old Oakland Raiders of the NFL, take everyone else's scrap, but they won a couple of super bowls with these types of players.  :smily1263:

With the addition of Comrie now, a pretty good second line center, will Muckler move a forward when Spezza and Fisher are back in the line up. I personally wouldn't mind seeing him shore up our defence, maybe grabbing Eric Brewer from St. Louis, he was signed to a 1 year 2M contract he could be a steal. Remember he was on the Oylmpic team in Nagano, if my memory serves me correctly. Probably wouldn't cost you much to resign him either and on a team like Ottawa he could become a top 4 or the top 2 defencman he was projected to be.
