What's wrong with the Senators?
Sat, February 7, 2009

By CHRIS STEVENSON, SUN MEDIA

Jason Spezza figures it's time for a change.

After scoring on three of his first four opportunities in the shootout earlier this season, the Senators centre has missed his last two attempts, including a shot into the glove of Boston Bruins goaltender Tim Thomas in Thursday night's 4-3 loss.

"Players only have so many moves in their toolbox and I think the (scoring) percentages are going down," said Spezza. "You've got to have a couple of moves in your arsenal and change it up."

Sens shootout woes grow

The Seanators Suck! Thats whats wrong with them
A Hockey Fan, 2009-02-03 10:05:30

multiple bad moves starting with Muckler letting Chara go and keeping Redden too long, and the lack of vision and executive savoir-faire from Bryan Murray...firing Paddock and Hartsburg may look like he's doing something, but he's just covering his butt. He gives in to players, he gave in to Emery until it was too late, he gave in to star players because of contracts they have...sit them out hurt them where it counts! send them down, a touch of reality...and stop the garage sale of defense players and get a decent goalie! all good teams start with defense and goalie....Ottawa killed that...so why so surprised!

All problems have Murray as the common denominator and everybody knows it buy the clown who can fire him...they deserve all they get

I'm thinking that something happened behind the scenes in late 2007. Something that turned the team into what they are today...could have been Emery, but more than likely something that happened off the ice...

There is just no fathomable reason why a team that was doing so well in the first half of 07'08 season be the worst team in their division and near the bottom of the league less than 12 months later. What is wrong with the team is something that has not been reported...who knows? There may be a gag order. I'm thinking its something that serious...

Jon, where in ANY of my posts did I say I was a Sens fan - or that the team didn't "suck" - to use a juvenile word to describe a team in turmoil? Point to one place.

All I was saying was, the fans in Ottawa are just as hockey mad as any other city in this country - maybe not as big, but what the hell does that prove?

Whats wrong is Murray.

He's depleted his defence of fast puck moving defenceman and team chemistry through terrible trades.Lost too many talented players that want to win.

Its too bad because two years ago all that team really needed was a goalie and Murray couldn't deliver.

Jon

I think you've proven all of my points.

First, I'm not a Sens fan, but a Habs fan. So as an outsider I look at the comments on this Sens link and over half of the posts somehow contain comments about the Leafs. Reading them they are basically of the "Sens suck because they're not the Leafs" nature, or "remember how we beat them?"

My point is that if you can't write here without mentioning the Leafs then you probably shouldn't be writing here. And no, I purposely don't very often go to the questions about the Leafs because you hear all you have to hear about them and more on the questions about other teams.

Is Ottawa trying to pull a Caps move, where they bring up another Bruce Boudreau?

It ain't the coach on the ice.....

I agree with Mark, short of Alfie, there seems to be a lack of heart on the team.

I have beena fan since day one and will continue to be a fan regardless!!!
Dave, 2009-02-02 13:48:37

When are these owners and GM's going to figure it out...Ottawa seems to be a collection of brats that don't want to give a consistent effort.

Hartsburg is nothing better than the next victim of the obvious!

Try cutting loose the dead weight in skates...you might actually make a difference.

One word: "EVERYTHING"
