To be fair, their "best" D man was not playing, and the D corp is not one of the strengths of the leafs, according to what a number of pundits have been saying so far this season.

Ottawa on the other hand, has improved defensively, as a team, and has the third best GA ranking in the Conference, with only Columbus and Washington having allowed fewer goals.

If Ottawa can start generating a few more goals than they've been doing so far this season, they could just come out on top of the Mix of teams challenging for the few playoff spots that should be in play until the end of the season.

Ottawa's PO odds have rebounded to 86.2%, from the low of 45.5% just three weeks ago, when they lost to Washington.

Ottawa has been playing the same style since training camp and they get better and better. They clearly have the team defence figured out. They are scoring more goals but they still need to add another top six scorer. They can certainly take on a Duchene or a Landeskog. In the next few weeks Tampa will use their troubles in the standings to try and clear up some of their long term salary cap problems.

I wonder if the Islanders might fold their tent and do a full rebuild offering up Tavares in a potential block buster of a deal. I think there are going to be huge deals involving big contracts.

The asking price for either of those two would include one of Chabot or White, a first round pick and a prospect ................ Ottawa would be dumb to do what you suggest. They might look for a bottom 6 fwd, for depth, and that's it if anything.

Tavares does have a Modified NTC, NMC, so again I doubt this suggestion is going to enter into the realm of reality.

nope. just on the couch. why do you say? are you chirping abiut the sens having a lead????

lol. how did that end?

I feel like this is the Twilight Zone. the sens and Canucks are the biggest embarrassments in the league but their fans are trying to chirp the leafs who have a team full of rookies in a playoff spot. and have started to try to chirp the leafs using other teams. Canucks halfwits us8ng a sens lead (and failing) and a sens fan who knows damn well the sens are garbage and trying to pump a winger from the Jets. this has literally gotten completely nonsensical. sensand Canucks fans are literally losing their marbles over the leafs building an elite team and their teams being comparable to the turd I just flushed.

it's so ridiculous.

Wild game last night.

Sens have gone on a nice run and, as it was pointed out on the broadcast, they have been earning points playing games against teams sitting playoff positions.

Careful now. This is when the twitching starts and you begin to lash out by saying irrational things. And you do have a history of getting yourself banned. At times like this you need to remind yourself "it is just a game."

Leafs are having a nice year and you should feel good about that. They will likely make the playoffs and play against the Sens in the first round. I think we should all feel happy about the possibility.

No it has been awhile that I have acknowledged that the Leafs might make the playoffs and meet the Sens in the playoffs. Sounds great to me. Have always been a fan of the Shanaplan, even before it existed. Believe Lamerello has done an outstanding job on the implementation.

A few "predictions" from the first two weeks of December , by our good friend prock



I'm sure of it. if I were a GM and was offered Karlsson for free I'd turn it down. he's a coach killer and you're gonna find the sens firing another coach soon enough.
- prock


Now that the leafs are missing their best D Man, would you now take EK65 for free?




Run and gun hockey doesn't work anymore. Karlsson costs too much to keep as a PP specialist dman, so I don't think he'll ever win a cup.
- prock


So are you still calling the Senators "System" Run & Gun? Ottawa currently sits with the third fewest goals allowed in their Conference.



as expected, the easy schedule they had subsided and the losses started racking up at the beginning of December. this was very easily predicted.
- prock





it should be getting quite clear that the early season wins were only due to the surprisingly easy schedule. the roster clearly doesn't measure up. as originally expected, by Xmas they'll be out of a playoff spot and by all star break out of contention.

- prock




the Sens have lost 6 of their last 8 games. they are terrible. they had a nice easy schedule for a long time and are now paying the price. it's not over. it's a two game break before Chicago, Anaheim, nyr, and Detroit.

and January is even worse for the Sens. 8 of 12 games against playoff trams. 3 against washington. pit, stl, and Columbus.

I predicted the Sens would be out of a playoff spot by Xmas and out of contention for one by the all star break. looks to be working out to be right on track.

- prock




So when does the "easy schedule" end now?

Wasn't it supposed to get harder in January?

Ottawa is 6 - 2 - 1 so far in January............ were they out of a Playoff spot a XMas?

The Senators have only two more games until the All Star Break........ just how will they be out of contention by Friday this week?
