Are you happy with the Sens' offseason moves?
Thu, August 28, 2008

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.

Yes it sucks being a Leaf fan. But don't deny me my last guilty pleasure of enjoying the floundering of the Hens. And by the way we never actually started rebuilding we've just been tinkering for the last 40 years. When the real rebuilding happens - watch out. Oh yeah, we went to the final 4 3x in the 90's. In case you forgot.

The only hope the Sens have is getting tee times as the Leafs have everything booked.....

Leaf fans just can't get over themselves. Cheering for a team that's been rebuilding since 1967. Sad.

Homer,

Yes the Laffs have knocked the Sens out the last 3 years eh lol.

You loser Laff fans are to much. You knock a team that makes the playoffs when your team is off golfing or heading to cottage country to relax from the hard work of playing the last month and a half of a 6 month season.

FORE LAFFS

Did I read that right, some Laffs fan said they ( Laffs ) are a hard working team ? lol John T said that.

Yea they worked so hard that they missed the playoffs again and for a third straight season. They took the first 3/4 of the season off and just showed up for the last 1/4 of the year to save there job and big fat contract for next year lol.

If the Laffs are a hard working team I would like to see what you call a team that goes through the motions just so they can collect there million dollar salary lol.

let's face it Ottawa fans, when your supposedly best players have one goal between them in the last 8 playoff games (including last years final), you are in trouble. and they will make $18mil next year... those two guys are the biggest floaters in the league.

and Murray didn't come up with anything to solve it. his trades this year were just plain awful, seems like he's loosing it. it's not just the goaltending (Gerber was the best player ia all three games for the sens) but the whole team stinks.

and who had the bright idea to put that half naked guy in the ridiculous custom on the ice before the game? it was embaracing, i felt almost bad for the fans.

No offense Glen, but Emery had a lot to do with Ottawa's demise. Gerber was playing well, with a league leading shot/save percentage, and was certainly more solid in goal than Emery. Emery was upset because he wasn't automatically reinstated as the top guy, and acted like a baby, which divided the team and undermined the whole organization. That's not to say that Ottawa shouldn't be playing better as a team, but Gerber has been solid and has given them a chance to win all 3 games. Unfortunately, Ottawa has been playing more like the Leafs lately. Unable to get it together when it counts.

I guess the Sens spent too many years losing to the leafs in the first round. Now Alfie is getting old and they just can't get it done. I'd rather watch Syd in the playoffs anyway. Bye sens.
Homer, 2008-04-15 10:20:35

Gerber can't be blamed for this, he's a step up from Emery (sorry Glen) and it the team loses it's not his fault. That being said, he's not playing his best I've seen and the rest of the team is just playing awful. I don't blame Alfredsson coming back after a bad injury, but the rest of the guys are playing below their capability. There were long periods of last night's game where Ottawa controlled the play and the Pens couldn't touch the puck. But then Ottawa wouldn't score or they'd take a penalty and lose their momentum.

Redden is asleep, Heatley is nonexistent (although I've seen regular season games where he was and then scored two in the third), Spezza is not connecting with anyone and overall, the team seems not to be skating or forechecking like they can. First round last year there were times when shorthanded that the Sens outchanced and outplayed the opposition. This year they seem to be letting up when they get a power play or a goal whereas last year they never did until they met Anaheim.

Truthfully last night the defining moment was when the Sens had a power play in the third and then Heatley clipped Staal in the face by accident and then before the whistle Staal was tripped up by Stillman. So from a power play to a 4 minute shorthanded situation in one play. I've never seen that before and technically, both were legitimate penalties, but I've rarely seen the refs so onesided about a game where the losing team needs the win. Usually they would call a dive or some such balancing call to even it out. Strange.

Well, Ottawa should have won this series but will lose now unless last year's team suddenly shows up and Gerber gets back his form from the beginning of the year.

its what they diserve[sens], for overachieving and choking in the playoffs. i cant stand the leafs but would rather see a hard working team like them in the playoffs rather then this heartless bunch in ottawa. i cant believe i cheered for them last cup run. can someone tell NEIL he's an idiot you cant punch people in the back of the head in any sport and if hed stay out of the box his team would at least have a hope. any way , go pens go away sens JT
