Saying your team is missing Ryan and MacArthur is like Leafs fans saying we're missing Lupul, Horton, and Robidas. Sure, it's true, but it's not really a big loss. Hell it might be to the team's benefit.
- Feeling Glucky?



Once MacArthur suffered another concussion in training camp, I for one wrote him off for the season....... and if he managed to make it back, I figured he would not play too long until another bad hit put him out ............. he just seems to have a bad thing going and doubt he'll ever get back to his previous level of play.

Ryan was playing very well until his latest injury, the coaching staff made a point of it, as he does a lot of things on the ice that goes unnoticed........ and yes you can criticize his lack of production and his paycheque all you want, but that's not going to change the fact that the Senators are one of the favourites to emerge from the Atlantic division.

You do make a good point, in that their absences from the line up has allowed for other players to step up into the "top six" forwards, and play bigger roles and gain some confidence and experience ...... so there is always some good in these types of situations. Same thing has been happening, on a smaller scale, on the blueline, with Claesson getting into the line up on a regular basis over this last stretch of games.

MacArthur and Ryan have regressed to third line players.

there are no favourites from the Atlantic division. there isn't a team in the division among the best in the east.

BUT, if you had to pick the winner of the Atlantic division, who would you pick?

Is it possible for a team from the Metro division, to win the Atlantic division?

this site gives the leafs (20.2%) an edge, over the Bruins (15.8%), for a WC .......... but the Islanders (48.4%) have the best odds .......... so that is the team the leaf fans should be rooting against.

I also like how you put top-6 in quotes. Like you know that a Sens' top-6 player doesn't really count as one on just about any other team in the league.

I wouldn't bother thinking about it because I don't care. the winner of the Atlantic division is rather meaningless.

What the Leafs have accomplished this season is spectacular. No scrambling necessary. They're set up to be a powerhouse as soon as next year. You can see how much it's starting to bother Sens fans.

You don't have any idea how the Sens have performed against stronger teams. The Sens have played every team in the Metropolitan Division really strong, in fact they have the best record in the league against Metropololitan teams.

I don't care. They stand no chance in a 7 game series against Pittsburgh, Washington, or New York. Zero. I don't give them much of a chance against Columbus either, but I don't think Columbus is much better than the Sens. They aren't "for real" either. (any team getting Cam Atkinson and Nick Foligno scoring almost 30 goals a piece has caught some lightning in a bottle).

Great! The rest of the league is taking the best rookie class the NHL has ever seen seriously, we don't care if you do or don't.

We don't take the Sens seriously. No one does. So we're not fussed either way.

Seems to be the pattern for Leaf fans. Let's just ignore the hard data of wins and losses.

Seriously, , and I really do mean to apply a serious perspective.

I believe in this Sens team. Over the years my complaint is that the team has not been built to fully exploit Karlsson's unique skill set. Since the beginning of the season I have believed this team can reflect a totality equal to or greater than the Karlsson skill set. I believe they are that good.

Everything is now about building the play through Karlsson. They are so much better than what they were before Christmas and the addition of deadline players has really strengthened their line up.

I think they match up really well against every team in the East except for the Penguins. They are playing a really strong playoff style of hockey and I will be disappointed if they do not progress.
