The Sens are a team that went to the Stanley Cup final two years ago before suffering a disappointing season in 2007-08.
They have a new coach and now no more Ray Emery.
Can the Senators turn it around and make a fresh start next season? Have your say in our forum.
So straighten up your little Sens helmet and get your plastic sword and repeat after me...
My team may not be as good as your team but no one said hey we may be as good as the Habs that lost only 8 games.
AND you were supposed to contend (if not win)after losing in the finals last year.
This about sums it up...
Mike Commodore leading scorer(2pts) in playoffs for Sens.
See you next year!

Beyond the first line, I thought most of the forwards were at the very best 3rd or 4th liners on most other teams in the league. Redden is a dman who is a good puck mover prone to getting beat by oncoming forwards and gaffes in critical times in games.
Emery's prima donna attitude has been prevalent in other sports where a mid level player thinks he's God's gift to the game and above the team structure.
There is a lot wrong when Mike Commodore is your leading point getter in the playoffs.

The facts are that in the playoffs, your "best" players have to play their best. Spezza and Heatley are both "soft" and lack heart.
The word around the league is hit Heatley or Spezza 1-2 times early in the game and they will vanish for the remainder. From the mid-point of the season to the end - they did.
Sign Brin Campbell for $8 million/yr - then you'd have another guy to go with Spezza and Heatley who won't go in the corners, never block a shot with the game on the line and who may have skill - but who has no heart.
If he's healthy, they should target Havlat.

There is a difference between speeding and drunk driving but I guess you didnt know that.
One is a criminal offence and doesnt have to involve being in a car accident and the other is a fine if there isnt an accident just speeding like all of us do sometimes.
happy summer mike
