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.

Good point about Carolina, Peter. the fact that one of those teams from that sad sack division gets to be the third seed is outrageous. They need to revisit that rule, and just let the standings be based on points alone

it is way too much of a long shot that they will miss the play-offs. they need only a couple of points and they are not THAT bad. the team which can miss out is Carolina. they are hanging by a thread.

the one thing is look apparent is that none of the eastern teams seems to stand a chance against any of the top wester ones.

Yeah their back on track allright ; problem being the tracks were ripped up years ago!!!

Couldn't agree more Vince. The Pens have become a solid, well-balanced group which should go a lot further than Round 1 this year.

The Habs - although they'll likely beat the Sens tonight - are a bit thin on D - especially with Komisarek out - and with that inexperience in goal will find the going tough. If they can get Boston in Round 1 they'll make it to the next series. But after that I can't see them. I know about Vachon and Dryden - rookie goalies who shone in the playoffs - but those were vastly different and stronger teams in front of them.

One team everyone seems to be overlooking is Carolina. They suffered the post-Cup blues last year, but seem to have turned it around this season, and are playing solid hockey despite a rash of injuries. Be interesting to see what happens tonight in Washington, a game that could go a long way towards ensuring that Ottawa squeaks in.

The Sens do not have enough grit. They have the skills with the puck but not enough all-round talent. The Pens are now where the Sens were last year. That is in youth, and the first place position in the standings. Malkin, Hossa and Crosby equal or better Heatley, Spezza and Alfredsson. The Pens also have Georges Laraque for toughness, and better goaltending.

It looks like a changing of the guard in the Eastern Conference.

We're on the same page when it comes to Neill, Peter. Dumb to the bloody bone, and with every stupid penalty he takes it seems like the opposition cashes in.
George O'Leary, 2008-03-31 16:31:56

well ,if they continue to play like they did lately, they're not gone make it. the Caps only four point behind. it would be nice to see the Caps get in and Ottawa out. :-) ather thing: how come that dirty little whining scum-bag (Neil) got away without a suspension for that elbowing? Again! ineresting that they come down hard on everybody except this coward.
Peter, 2008-03-31 10:21:00

You're assuming that they are going to make the playoffs Roland. That's no guarantee, and a loss tomorrow against the Habs will leave them dangling in the wind. One point out of 8th and with Washington coming like a freight train.

Actually, I'd rather see Ovechkin and the Caps make it. At least that will make for some exciting hockey to watch. The Sens are in full retreat mode now.

Ottawa could surprise in the playoffs and finally put it all together.

In previous years, they've torn up the regular season and gone bust in the playoffs. Maybe this year will be the reverse (after the first 20 games of the season)?

I expect Montreal and Pittsburgh to fight it out in the East though.

Perhaps Montreal has been ordained by the NHL to continue their streak of winning at least once every decade - this year or next.

Are the Senators back on track?

The Senators should thank their lucky stars that they started the season 16 and 4. Otherwise, they would be joining the Leafs on the golf course at season's end. A 4-0 loss to Boston this afternoon tells me they're going to have a tough time this post-season.
