Congrats to our Sens
« on: May 28, 2017, 09:42:40 PM »
I can't say I wasn't disappointed they lost game 7 against the Pens but hey I forgive them :) and we all seem to forget how incredibly difficult it is to even advance to this stage.... I just wanted to say thanks to our team for anamazing season and run. I am proud to be a Sens fan and even my wife who refused to watch them for years says now I have a reason to watch them. She was amazed at this run and I say we all are. Anyways I believe we are just scratching the surface of something new and very exciting years to come. Huge cudos to Dorian and Boucher and of course the biggest one goes to this amazing team, what an effort :)

Just my 2 cents worth

I agree.  They certainly exceeded many peoples expectations.  I believe that with a couple of key moves they will get stronger in the next couple of years.
Time passes, things change, the Sens WILL WIN the CUP. 
edit -  Hopefully within my lifetime.......

Now that I am older, I thought it was great that I seemed to have more patience.  Turns out I just don't give a damn.

I don't have an attitude...I have a personality you can't handle!

It was REALLY fun to watch despite being a boring team...lol... I honestly thought this was happening but that wasnt the case sadly.
Very interested to see how this off season plays out with some movement being inevitable (the draft, FA's)..Also, some of the younger guys maybe taking some roster spots...
 I too think the team is a few key pieces away from being a real threat..... or at least... a bigger threat

Wingles, Kelly and Neil won't be back.

One of Wideman or Claesson will likely be taken by Vegas.

Looks like Condon will take his decent season and try to cash in on the free agent market. He's likely gone too.

Stalberg and Pyatt might stick around, as Boucher seemed to really like them.

White, Chabot, Harpur will likely graduate.

Yeah, an incredible season and one heck of a ride!


 
How does it work when it comes to Las Vegas taking players? I saw that Dorian said he may ask Phaneuf to wave his no trade clause in order to protect Methot and that he's in talks with Vegas to sweeten a deal to prevent them from taking a player that the Sens don't want to lose.


I also heard mid-season that Wideman is most likely to head to Vegas.

You can protect either 6 forwards, 3 d-men and a goalie, or 8 skaters and a goalie. First and second year players are exempt (White, Harpur, etc). In Ottawa's case, due to his contract, Phaneuf must be protected. So when you consider Karlsson will be protected, that leaves one spot for either Methot or Ceci. It's rumored that Dorion will ask Dion to waive his no-(whatever) clause, so as to expose him and his hefty contract with the belief that Vegas won't take him due to his contract.

Looking forward to next season already.  I was definetly pleased with the effort in Game 7 but I am pissed off that we have zero power play for what seems like 3 - 4 years now.  It's a joke and a handicap.


Even 1 goal would have likely had us playing Nashville now.  Oh well.  Drink and Be happy.   :drink:

The frustrating part is that Boucher is supposed to be a powerplay specialist.
