After last season's trip to the Stanley Cup Finals, and their hot start to this season the Senators are playing at a higher level then most teams they face.
But with tight restrictions under the salary cap, do you think dynasties are now a thing of the past? Have you say in our forum
Calgary will be a contender for at least the next 5 years thanks to Sutters locking up his key players before they become free agents.
Thats how you have to do it with a salary cap in place.

Anyhow, it's unlikely to happen but it could with a lot of luck and some good management.

As for Vince doling out a bit of BS, that is going on 82 years since their last one so, yeah, he'd have to be well into his 90s to have any memories of that, and even there I have to wonder. I know I have a hell of a time trying to recall events clearly from when I was 10 to 12 years old. Fuzzy at best.

So you did blink and miss the past Leaf glory years. People criticize Leaf Nation for their 40 year Stanley Cup drought, so if you're suggesting that today's Senators have some sort of storied past that goes back to the 20's, their drought is truly pathetic.
Also, I can't believe that you're 90 years old or better as you indicate in your post, but if you are your maturity level is also truly pathetic. Let's be honest though - you're full of crap.

I don't know how far back you go, but I go as far back as the Ottawa Senators glory years of the 1920's. That, was likely before your time.

Judging by the overall maturity level that you demonstrate in your post, I'm thinking that you didn't blink and miss the Leaf glory years but it was likely before your time.

To Jake, the Leafs had a Dynasty? When? Did the rest of us blink and missed it? Oh, you must be referring to the 40 year dynasty that they hold on not winning a cup! Talk about turning a negative into a positive. But that kind of Dynasty is called an oxymoron, I'm afraid. Go leafs Go, and don't come back. Too bad, Leafs' fans are always going through the experience of feeling "Blue".

it has much to do with management & scouting. Two things the leafs & hawks lack. simply stating the Obvious
