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.
If you think Bells hit on Alfie was clean you are blind. Watch the replay and look for the follow through of Bells elbow.
You Laff fans are hilarious. Slam Sens fans when your team is on the golf course for the third year in a row and next year will be four and counting lol.
We should get a pool going on how many years the Laffs will miss the playoffs in a row. I will say 5 lol.

In the future, don't brag about the Leafs and then expect others to not mention their many, many shortcomings. Did you seriously think no one would? lol...

If things turn out the way they look like they will, it gives me great joy to know that my Leafs played some small part in the downfall of the Sens. Two key players - Alfie (Bell's hit was clean by the way) and Fisher - out courtesy of the Leafs. The Leafs won the season series with the Sens based on total points earned.
Eugene Melnyk said earlier in the season that he wished the Leafs were more competitive . Well they are when it comes to the Sens - be careful what you wish for!!!
Before all you cement head Sens fans start slamming the Leafs again, why don't you come up with an original thought first (i.e. negative plays on the team name like Maple Laffs are getting very old, missed the playoffs for the last 3 years, etc.). Remember, this string is about the Sens after all, not the Leafs.

He's a joke!!! For instance, where was he after Bell's hit on Alfie a week or so ago?
Sens are in trouble and will have to dig deep to get out of their funk.

Do you know the rules of hockey ? Roberts ran at Cody Bass when he was in a vulnerable position and DID NOT HAVE THE PUCK. Roberts could have got any 1 of 3 penalties: interference charging or boarding. It isnt about the " scuffle " that Roberts waited for the linesman to get in front of him before he got tough lol. He is a dirty player. When he played for the Laffs he ran Kenny Johnson from behind and knocked him out of the playoffs with a concussion. Its about time he pays for his cowardly hits.
Next time you want to comment on something make sure you have a clue about the whole incident.
Both his goals were pure luck. Spin around and slides a backhand that had eyes and other goal went in off his skate, even you could get a bs goal like that lol.

What an embarrassment. This would not happen in Montreal, Edmonton, Calgary, Vancouver and even Toronto. The fair-weather fans in Ottawa should be ashamed.
Elgin St. was empty last night, Ottawa radio downplayed the Sens in the playoffs, most fans were utterly dismissive of the teams chances-
Why? Is the hockey culture in Ottawa so fragile, that losing a playoff series, or even not making the playoffs, diminishes your love for your team?
The Sens have a great team and because its playoffs- every team has a chance. Get out there and support your team; through thick and thin. If they lose, then hope for next year. If they win, then celebrate with them. This quasi-interested, apathetic response to the playoffs is no way to reward a talented team that took you to the finals last year. (And yes I am a Leafs fan living in Ottawa)

Murray needs to be fired as the first move.
