Should the Sens be worried?
Thu, November 29, 2007

How low are things for the reeling Ottawa Senators? They are mired in their longest losing streak since dropping five in a row (0-4-1) in late October and early November last season.

So, what's wrong with the Senators? Is it their forward lines? Goaltending? Defence? Bad luck?

Tell us what you think in our forum.

Hey Jake,

You can do better than that, can't you?

Of course I have a wife - kids too. 'Course, it took me a long time to settle down. You see, I have had LOTS of girlfriends. Technically speaking, they weren't all girlfriends since I only knew some of them (in the biblical sense) for a night or two. I'm not really a good guy to mock, sexually speaking, since I have led the kind of life that most guys just dream about. I don't like to brag about it but you called me on it. Hell, you probably don't even believe me and that just puts a smile on my face!

Clearly, I have loyalty issues, but not when it comes to supporting my teams. I hear Leaf and Habs fans talking about loyalty all the time, but what could be more disloyal than turning your back on your hometown?

Leaf fans need to get another rallying point because that "loyalty" dog just won't hunt.

So Jake, you feel free to castigate others who are allegedly not Leaf fans for posting in the Leafs threads, yet here you are - a diehard Leaf supporter I gather - in a Senators thread giving us your opinions. And hey, that's fine. Opinions are just that, and always open to argument (and I agree with your earlier post by the way regarding the goaltending situation) - but why do you think you have to stoop to insults? It just provokes others to do the same and, in the end, offers up nothing substantial in the way of a bona fide argument.

For the record, I think Ottawa's current problems are a manifestation of the same one that haunted them last spring - shut down the top line and you can beat them. Which is why Murray is desperately seeking a deal for a top 6 forward.

The only thing they should worry about is Martin Gerber and Ray Emery. So yes, they should be worried.

Hey "No Morons Allowed":

I think that I understand you very well. I'd be willing to bet that you don't have a wife, and haven't had a girlfriend for a very, very, very, long time (if ever). Stings a little bit when someone figures out your shortcomings from one email post, doesn't it?

"reality check"

you did not mention who you cheer for out there in Quebec.Did your allegiance move from Quebec to Colorado with your team or are you a traitor too?
Robin, 2007-11-30 16:23:56

Worried??...Hardly..more like concerned..worried would be more for the family of some person with "reality" problems.

The sens have a great team on paper.Sadly for them...games are won on the ice...not on paper.What i saw so far indicates all the signs of a poorly coached team:Poor forecheck,sloppy passes,inability to get the puck out of their zone,very poor defensive plays,and...last and most important...goaltending.I believe Murray's priotities are not to get another power forward,instead he needs to focus on getting a realable, #1 goaltender.Unfortunately,a team with a winning record is not likely to make considerable changes.Too bad because,i feel that this "actual" product won't go very far in the playoffs.A coach & a goalie,and we're there baby!!..Cheers!!!

No, as long as they make the playoffs with home ice as much as possible that's all that matters. Still lots of time left in the year to work on slumps
Robin, 2007-11-30 15:59:54

I must admit that if the Sens would ever go into a loosing slump I am very happy that it is now and not after the all-star break. Lets face it guys/gals, every team goes through a slump at least once during regular season. Better to do it now than later in the season when it becomes crucial.

I will always have faith in my Senators, even though I live in Milton (close to Toronto) I am Ottawa born and shall always remain a true Sens fan.
True Sens fan from Milton, 2007-11-30 15:53:06

Hey "reality" boy,

What do you mean by every Sens fan over 15 is a traitor? Because they no longer cheer for the Habs or the Leafs? I can understand cheering for another city's team when you don't have one of your own, but once your city has a team, that's who you cheer for. Period. You have it completely backwards. It is utterly treasonous to oppose your home town team. It's despicable to cheer for the Leafs or the Habs while living in this area. Whose players pay taxes in this area? Whose players visit our kids in the hospital and give to local charities? Certainly not the Habs! You're obviously the kind of person who likes to push buttons just to get a rise out of people. Using your logic, Canadian citizens of German or Japanese heritage should have sided with the Axis during the Second World War. After all, the "team" that you're born with is the team that you die with, right?

My wife should be worried. My ex-girlfriend just moved back to Ottawa. I need to get back with her since she came first. To stay with my new girl makes me a traitor, right?

I think that I understand you very well. It's very, very, very simple.

Hey Aylmer: Welcome aboard the Sens Bandwagon, buddy! Lotsa room! Sens Army rules here in Harper Country. Sens in '08, Harper in '09.

Does life get better?
