Momentum in sports is a new concept.
- golfingsince


How would the sens bring it with them? Where do you put it between games?
Do you just have it still when the next game starts?

yeah, and one decent period among a several game streak of garbage counts as significant momentum too. At least, that's what I'm told about this new momentum thing.

He said IF, and they're playing an average team without it's best defender and captain.

Regardless of last night's game I still think the Sens are in a bad situation overall. But I get you're riding the high of a big win and feeling good. It's what being a fan is all about.
- systemtool



They were full value for the win last night, and in the past season would follow a game like that up with a sleeper, and lose to a team they shouldn't have....... so tomorrows game against the Bruins will be a test ..... I plan to attend the game anyways.

Look about half way up the page, where you agree that Ottawa's moves aren't made with the intent to win games, but only to save money.

Don't tell me one win is all it takes to make you flip your position.

As for the Leafs, their goal is to win the cup. Rebuilding and developing youth is a big part of that. If the youth is leading the team to victory often enough that they don't get a good draft position... that's a good thing.

I don't understand why you're so happy about winning one goal games. Wouldn't you rather a team that wins by many goals, and dominates, instead of scraping by? And giving up points to other teams in OT? And even the shootout, which can be a drawback in the standings?

Further, how can you see this as a good sign, a bunch of one goal wins, when the Sens schedule has been so easy?

I don't get why you bring this up. I'd be hiding it if I were you.

So........... it would be better to lose those one goal games???

It would probably be better for YOUR organization.

Either way, it's nothing to be bragging about.

So you think a team that is 9 (wins) and 2 (losses) in one goal games is not good?

Do the leafs strive to be on the losing end of one goal games?

Is it "good"? No, it's not. It's acceptable. I'd rather be 0 wins, 2 losses in one goal games, and have those 9 wins in the 2+ goal win column. Especially when you factor in the Sens being 3 wins 6 losses in games with a 2 or more goal differential. In other words, sometimes the Sens scrape by and win a game, but they also get blown out a fair bit. They lead the league in 3+ goal losses in fact.

The Leafs strive to win games by more than one goal. They'd strive to be the Rangers, who have 13 wins by more than 1 goal.

all said and done I'd say any teams record with a certainew goal differential is rather meaningless if that teams record with other goal differentials is rather bad. other than I'd rather lose by less if I'm losing and win by more if I'm winning.

Again that's your spin on the current state of the Senators ...... aka wishful thinking.

Even glucky has explained the reasoning behind the trade between the two Ontario teams, and none of it had to do with with "winning now" as much as you pray that it is, but it was not.


I may be in the minority in thinking the Leafs would have a better on-ice product with Phaneuf on the team this year.

That being said, part of the rebuild was a culture shift, and that involved getting rid of the old guard. With that in mind I think we all knew that it would be hard to move Phaneuf'a cap without taking back another albatross, unless he was moved to a budget team that had no real intention of ever spending to the cap or competing for the cup, that just had to make moves to placate their fanbase, even if those moves were terrible deals.


And thats exactly what happened. And on the plus side it bought us long-term cap relief to improve the team as our prospects develop... and Ottawa saved some cash. It's rare that both teams in a trade accomplish their objectives.

Keep deluding yourself if you wish, that's your right, I guess.

Okay, so I guess that means you're happy with the leaf losing in a shoot out.
