If the Senators Miss the Playoffs This Year, It’s Not Because of Bobby Ryan

In case you’re not familiar, Fire Joe Morgan was the blog that set the highest standard for hilarious sports criticism by taking some of the worst baseball columns written and proceeding to rip them apart paragraph by paragraph. Like countless others, I’ve ripped off their successful formula numerous times. It feels like it has been ages since I’ve taken the time to do a FJM...

Senators Submit An Arena Proposal For LeBreton Flats?

A few weeks ago, the National Capital Commission (NCC) invited and encouraged the private sector to submit proposals to redevelop a 9.3 hectare parcel of land (that could be expanded to 12.3 hectares) at LeBreton Flats. The idea of a downtown arena has been nothing but a pipedream for many Senators fans. Well, maybe we’re closer to that reality than ever before. According an Hfboards...

Jackets look to stay hot on the road vs. Senators

Hashing things out in the locker room during their last game helped the Ottawa Senators to a third straight win following a season-opening loss. They'd prefer to avoid another slow start against the Columbus Blue Jackets. The Senators look for Clarke MacArthur to continue doing his part Saturday night when they try to slow the Blue Jackets, who've also gotten off to a strong...

Senators focus on D

Now it's the Senators' Achilles' heel that is showing signs of improvement. But apparently, it's still not good enough. Both during and after Wednesday's practice, coach Paul MacLean held more "discussions" than you might expect from a team that has won two of its first three games and allowed just five goals going into its home opener. It seems the...

Jared Cowen – The Poster Child For a Mediocre Blue Line?

If you were to tell me that Jared Cowen was confused these days, I’d believe it from his on-ice play. A lot of eyebrows yesterday when Ottawa’s media collectively tweeted from practice writing, “Jared Cowen was surprised to have been a healthy scratch so early in the season.” For anyone who watched the first two games of the season, you’re probably thinking that Cowen...

Panthers have pathetic attendance at home game

What’s it like when an NHL game is held and almost no one bothers to show up? Just ask the Florida Panthers. In an embarrassing display of abject fan apathy, photos were circulated on social media Monday night depicting a nearly empty BB&T Center in Sunrise, Fla., both before and during the game between the […] The post Florida Panthers played host to Ottawa Senators and...
