Do the Sens need to make major changes?
Wed, June 6, 2007

After watching Ottawa's run to the Stanley Cup final do you think the Eastern Conference Champs need to make major changes?

What caused the Sens collapse in the Cup final? Was it coaching, goaltending, defence, or just bad luck?

Have your say in our forum.

The Sens always choke in the playoffs, too bad they chose the final this year.

Simply put, the Senators ran out of gas. Anaheim was tougher mentally and physically. I also think that Murray was out coached by Carlisle. The Sens need more grit and a new coach and GM. Trade deadline failures and Murray's inability to gather his troups and push them to a higher level should ultimately result in his removal.

No coolapse here - just beaten by a way better team....in fact any one of about 8 other teams from the west would have laid a licking like this on them - such is the disparity between the two conferences. Bigger, tought, nastier conference - enough said.

Both teams gamed like little boys - as with all childish games one side loses.

The Sens are great just the way they are and all Ottawans should be proud of their performance this year. They will only be better next season and we will be treated to another long playoff run and maybe a Stanly Cup - Go Sens Go!

As for a collapse, there was none here - Other than the last game, we were treated to 4 close games, and sadly (for me at least), the better team came on top this year.

How many times can this team "CHOKE"? It seems like its the only thing they do well.

CONGRATS DUCKS!

I believe it came down to Anaheim being a much better team. I don't believe that the Sens faced the same challenges in the Eastern Conference. I believe the true solution is to get Bettman to endorse more inter-conference play. The Sens did great; they got to the Stanley Cup; unfortunately, only one team can win. Congrats to Teamu and his team.

yes a shake up is definatley needed they can't win with alfreddson and it's time for him to go. that was clear by his intentions in game 4 not thinking for the team but himself

murray as well, come on now 5 games and he can't adapt his team to anaheims game style??? whats with that

in a way it was good too because here we saw little players such as fisher who stepped up and carried their team thru the series

i think though at the end of the day... there has to be some major changes in ottawa

Way to choke. Canada, second rate, again. Four straight, bang bang bang bang. All she wrote, goodbye.

The Stanley Cup will belong to a team named after a B-movie vehicle for Emilio Estevez.

But that's okay Canada, you're close enough. You made it to the final. Coulda, mighta, guess so.

Get some cojones and win the damn thing next year. After all, it's your national game right?

Does it ever get snowy in Anaheim?

NO CUP FOR YOU!

The league needs a shake-up. Where is the soul of this game? Who supplies the most talent, where is the core fanbase? CANADA!!! How many cups have we won in the last 14 years? ZERO! The americans have stolen our game. CDN expat in Chicago.
