Almost oldest team in the league loses to a younger, faster team.

Things don't look good for these geezers, despite collecting points early on.

- Tumbleweed


Ottawa has had a very good start to the season and should no longer really be a surprise. I find myself looking at the upcoming games and penciling them in for a win most games. If I had to rank the teams in the east right now I would have them maybe 3rd behind Tampa and Pittsburgh, maybe tied with Columbus.

The concern for the Sens is that, going back to last season playoffs, they are starting to look like a team that is always holding on. They had a bunch of late game goals last playoffs, a a great record in OT. This year they *seem* to always be barely holding on to leads or scrambling to tie the game for the loser point.

This is a good testament to the heart on the team. The problem is that sooner or later the luck changes. They don't get the last minute goal, they don't get the egregious give away by the opposing dman late i the game. The emotional and mental toughness is draining. The system requires a lot from the forwards. Their core is not young.

also... 5 of their goal differential came against the Oilers who were probably the worst team in the league when Ottawa rolled in to town to feed it to them.

jvr and martin out.

leivo and kap in.

younger and faster. arguably more skill too. flyers have some big vets. should be interesting.

not optimistic over the next four games but after that i think this team will turn on the engines.

Gotta say- pretty sweet to see DiDomenico getting a goal. Guy was a legit process before his leg got destroyed. Great story, even if he’s on a poop team.

As bad as the Leafs look, this isn’t the case.

It’s frustrating because it’s not a skill problem, it’s an effort one. Not surprising in a young team, especially against weaker opponents.

The Sens are an old team with a skill problem, but they are mature enough to give it their all each night... probably because they know they have to.

so what you're saying is that if the leafs mediocre D and awful goaltending tried a little harder they'd stop being terrible?

oh, and BTW, the leafs are like the 5th or 6th oldest team in the league

your team is 2-3 great forwards.......and that's it

cause most teams usually have 8 great forwards?

so...ottawa has 0-1 great forward?

Toronto is 12th oldest.

ottawa is 2nd oldest.
