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.

You can really tell the Leaf Fans. They have nothing to do but worry about Ottawa. It was an awful playoff run, but still 12 years in a row. I believe 4 years for the leafs since they've been there.

Ray Emery has ruined this team. Plain and simple

Senators are like tulips.

They come out for a few weeks early each Spring then die.

1974. New York Islanders trailed Pittsburgh in the first round 3 games to none. The Pens had dominated them, and the Isles didn't look like they belonged on the same ice surface, but something happened in game 4. The Isles decided to go out with their dignity intact. Pittsburgh may win the series, but they weren't going to get any more help from the Islanders. New York won that series by refusing to lie down, or go quietly, and took on Philly in round 2. They were down 3 - 0 in that series too, but pushed it to overtime in game 7 before their season ended. That team subsequently won 5 Cups. It's not looking very promising right now, but it's not over yet either. History has a habit of repeating itself. Don't be impatient like Toronto, who have shown no loyalty to the men who play hardest for them. Be patient! The Sens are an excellent team, and when they arrive, they won't just win the Cup; they'll OWN it for a few years, just like that Islanders team did.

I don't blame just Emery. The whole team lacks heart and secondary scoring. They are too soft.

It's very apparent that the Sens need to change direction. They are being outworked and out coached by Pittsburgh. They need to rebuild with fresh young talent like Pittsburgh and Montreal have. Let's face it, how did the Senators win 75% of the Season series against Pittsburgh. It's baffling. It goes to show that there are not enough Ottawa Senators players that embrace playoff pressure. They see pressure as a negative impediment rather than a challenge to be embraced. THAT is where the difference lies between the two teams.

It will be interesting to see what changes will occur both on and off the ice the next couple of months.

Pittsburgh and Montreal have surpassed them and are now the elite teams of the Eastern conference.

Why is everyone trying to blam Emery for Ottawa's demise. Ottawa lack offense and confidence and I don't see how Emery has contributed to their downfall. Their problems started when they put Gerber in net and left out their number one goaltender who took them to the finals last year. I can't wait for them to get a whipping so I can watch their goofy coach get the boot.

Rick, the Senators are nowhere near as good a team as Pittsburgh, penalties or not.

Ottawa's time has passed them by and they didn't make the moves they needed to make over the last 5 years to win it all.

The window of opportunity has basically closed for them as there are too many up and coming teams like Pittsburgh, Montreal and Washington, who have gone by Ottawa.

The only hope for Ottawa is to trade a big name or two in the off-season and get rid of the cancer, Ray Emery.
gordholio, 2008-04-14 23:13:49

Sorry Rick. It's not about the Sens maturing over the summer. The team was supposedly in place at the beginning of the season coming of a good run last year. The problem was/is the other teams made necessary changes due to cap/new NHL system. The Sens got off to a good start with the old regime and thought they had it in the bag, while everyone else was adjusting to their new rosters. Reality is, once the other caught up the Sens weren't all that great. Witness where they've been since December and how they're playing now. VERY ORDINARY !! The Leafs without Sundin would have put up a better fight. Let's see where you're Sens are next year.
