Funny how other GMs always ask for Ceci or Lazar whenever there's some sort of trade rumour.

So when other GMs covet young players on Ottawa's roster, when talking trade, it's a criticism?

Senators have developed a "wining culture" in their organization, and it really contrasts with the "losing culture" that the Oilers have instilled in their organization.

Senators get behind in games, and don't give up, they continue to push to win games, and the Oilers get behind by a couple of goals late in games, and pack it in and go through the motions and simply play out the remaining time.

You spelled "whining" wrong.

He can play with a puck like it's on a string, and is one of the fastest skaters in the league.

Needs to up his game in last third of the season, to earn a big payday once his contract is up.

Is there a difference between "covet" and "he's the only thing worthwhile"

Are we looking at the final 15 games of Mike Hoffman’s tenure in Ottawa? Sure looks like it. The winger was benched Saturday in Toronto, then played 13:46 the next night against Dallas. I talked about it with one agent (not Hoffman’s), who points out the contract power pendulum will switch from the club, which did very well in his arbitration case last summer, to the player. He is one year from unrestricted free agency, and can go to arbitration once again. This time, his resume is deeper, as he’s become one of the best even-strength scorers in the league. Unless the Senators believe in him enough to offer a lengthy extension, and their usage certainly indicates doubt, you can’t let him walk for nothing.


It's a shame Ottawa is so cheap. It's hard to keep a competitive roster when you have to get rid of guys as soon as they want money.

2 seasons in a row, his scoring has all but disappeared in the last quarter of the season.

Logical to let him play out the season, and access what his worth is.

Sure is funny reading leaf fans talk about paying players, when they have a rich history of paying guys like David Clarkson for scoring goals when it counts the most.

Pretty sweet that the owners in TO have enough money that they can do the type of trade that got rid of him.


Thank you Dopps, for the excellent example of Toronto's spending power.

Breaking!! Sens are hot Garbage

Darren Dreger @DarrenDreger
Hard to tell who is safe and who isn't in Ottawa, based on owners comments. Sens will pay Paul Maclean for another season for not coaching.

Darren Dreger @DarrenDreger
Not long after Eugene Melnyk hammers his team, predicts changes, Dave Cameron calmly says he pays the bills and is entitled to his opinion

Ottawa has won 48% of games since 2007 and has never made it past RD2. Is merely a new coach really going to change that? I'm skeptical.

I think the Sens are a lot worse off than the leafs for sure.. Melnyk is just loony.
thankfully Leafs owners have let Shanny do his thing..and its going to pay off big..I have no doubt.

James Mirtle Retweeted SensChirp
Ownership is part of the problem in many Canadian NHL cities...

James Mirtle added,
SensChirp @SensChirp
Melnyk says he he has lots of experience in analytics. Horse racing analytics. Says experienced hockey guys don't need analytics. Yiikes.

James Mirtle ‏@mirtle
I think this is why some US teams succeed where Canadian ones don't. They're second or third fiddle for an owner. They get left alone.

James Mirtle ‏@mirtle
Anyway... add that to the list of why Canadian teams don't win. 23 years! Crazy.



that horse racing quote is (frank)ing great...and by great I mean wtf??
Melnyk is so concerned about spending money.. adding an anylitics department who could at the very least advise on if a player should be signed...they could save millions for mistakes like Greening, Michalek etc.. the ROI would be huge
