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.
The most recent Cup chance for the Leafs - early 90's when they were put out in game 7 of the conference finals by the Kings. Too bad, because it was probably the last best chance for a Leafs/Habs Stanley Cup final with the current set up. It would have been great for real hockey fans but Bettman's worst nightmare.

yea only 1 problem with that statement. Sens havent been in the NHL for 100 years lol. Little bit of a break between the 1920's and the 1990's dont you think ? Only 70 years, great point though LMAO.

Maybe they will win the Cup before it hits 100 years hmm?

I guess the Laffs should be proud of missing the playoffs for the third year in a row.
They dont seem to know that the games played between October and early March actually count in the standings to.
If they could play the first 3.5 - 4 months of the season like they play the last month and a half maybe they might make the playoffs this decade but dont go holding your breath lol.

As for Martin, he did the right thing by benching Spezza back in the days. He truly enforced the team philosophy, and by doing so, proved that 2nd 3rd and 4th lines would contribute as well. Now, the team relies on 3 or 4 players to do what everyone on that team should be doing. There is no Senators team anymore, just 6 guys on the ice trying to do their own thing.

Impressive comment from a Laffs fan that supports a losing team for 41 years.
You are a sucker and the management know it, they play you fools like a violin lol.
How many years has it been see the Laffs played in the playoffs again ? 3 lol
Will be another 4 or 5 till they make the playoffs again if then lol.
Speaking of golfing, dont try to get any tee times in the GTA, the Laffs have all the morning times booked till training camp starts in September lol.

Were you even born the last time the almighty Leafs were in the stanley cup ? I will give you a hint then you can do the math to figure it out. The year was 1967.
Good luck and yes you may use a calculator lol.
