The Ottawa Senators have shaken things up.
Ottawa acquired forward Cory Stillman and defenceman Mike Commodore from the Carolina Hurricanes on Monday for forward Patrick Eaves and defenceman Joe Corvo.
The Senators lead the Eastern Conference and have made very few changes from the team that lost to Anaheim in last year's Stanley Cup.
Does this deal address problems in the Senators lineup? Are the Sens a better team following the four-player trade? Have your say in our forum.
Sens pull off a big deal
People that know a bit about hockey, will always tell you that the most important position is goaltender.
In bygone playoff years, the Leafs were a much inferior team to the Senators....except in nets. Belfour stoned the Sens while Lalime laid an egg.
Unfortunately, the Sens never had a topnotch goalie. Lalime, Rhodes, Tugnutt (wankers all), now Emery (?) Gerber(?).....
As for the Leafs......see the boot....look way up.....what do you see? 29 other teams. Sure was a riot last night to listen to that wiener Greg Millen and the infantile, giggling fool,.. Joe Bowen......I guess that they have to appeal to the lowest common denominator......but is their audience also those with the lowest I.Q. in the country. Appears so.

before you faint from the burden of the pride you feel for the "blueshirts" let me remind you that they have won the Stanley Cup ONCE in the past 68 years, and if mark messier hadn't decided that he wanted out of Edmonton you wouldn't even have the distant memory of 1994 to recall.
So Shut your yap! lmao

So basically, what you're saying is "Ottawa - as a location - can never win the cup." Doesn't matter what changes they may make, it's the location.
See, it's this way - in order to win the cup you have to get through 4 playoff rounds. Ottawa did that by winning the first three rounds in almost minimal games - 15 instead of 12. Then they lost to a better team in Anaheim. That's the way it goes. But the point is, they GOT there. And Alfreddson - that "clown" as you so eloquently put it - won the playoff scoring. Not bad for a loser.
It really begins to take on a pitiful (that's the correct spelling by the way) look when all you can do is dredge up the same sorry old cliches like "Alfie The Clown" - based, I suppose, on a hairdo he had a few years ago - yuk yuk - and the fact Toronto beat the Sens in 4 straight playoff series. But that's history.
So are the Canadiens' glory days - which I miss - but reaching into the past to paint a picture of a team today is just a complete waste of time.
And speaking of "shutting yaps" - practice what you preach then until the "Blueshirts" actually win the "ultimate." I'm already visualizing the Red Green duct tape over your mouth.

It's too bad that you listen to the idiot Ottawa pundits (Moron Sports on the Team 1200) that have deluded all the traitors that became Sens fans into believing that the Senators could ever win a cup!
You fall right into line and blame Emery for the disgrace that was the Finals last year just like they want you to. No wonder he has no desire to play for the team.
Before that you got to blame Hasek for getting injured.
Before him it was Lalime...notice a trend here???? Why always blame the goalie????
Lack of leadership is the problem with your team. Alfie the clown can never lead the team past a team with good leadership like Anaheim. He can't perform when it counts and is not preparing any potential leaders on this pityful team. Look at what has happened since he got injured...pretty crappy win/loss ratio. If he was a true leader, he would have someone take up the slack for him while he was out...like say Spezza???
Whoo hoo...you are leading the conference...
By the way...I cheer for the Blueshirts...not the Leafs
Shut your yaps until your team actually accomplishes the ultimate.

If you really think Ottawa will be in last in the conference within 3 years you are mentally ill. Ottawa has all it's top players locked up long term. We won't be "Toronto bad" for the forseeable future.

They walk around wearing their blue & white sweaters with names of wankers like Tucker and Mccabe.
And they wonder why they suck so much.
