LOL I was just talking to someone yesterday about how now Nashville and Anaheim will beat each other up and be injury riddled going into the final.

Yup, lady luck is a Sens fan at the moment

And Fisher...

I feel like we are back at the stage where Sens fans feel indestructible.

So congrats again on the Cup win

Unfortunately, it didn't.

A couple months ago my father in law passed and my wife or one of her sisters and brothers stay with my mother in law each night. This weekend, my wife was the only one able to stay with her on one of the days, so we ended up staying home.

I think we will do an Ottawa weekend in the summer. It will be nicer to walk around then anyway

I gave up counting out the Sens this off-season.

Their window is now.

Might be playoff fatigue in Ottawa ........... 70 playoff games played in the last 11 seasons ........... while other teams, like the leafs have only played 13 playoff games, over the same period of time.

I'd guess that Ottawa has sold probably 5 times more tickets, to home playoff games, than the leafs have, over those 11 seasons........do I need to remind you that the GTA has approximately 6 times the population of Ottawa from which to draw from?

We also don't have any other competition for our entertainment dollars.


Nothing close to pre-ordering CFL pre-season tickets, anyways.


edit: I don't think people in the GTA should count. It's an hour's drive to the ACC for most of them!

Remember when so many visitors bought tickets to the Sens game that Melnyk cried and Sens fans cried and the Senators started blocking sales of tickets to other teams' fans?

“We can deny it all we want, but it’s there,” says Mendes. “So whenever the national media, the Toronto media, weighs in on Ottawa, the ghosts of that run are always lingering in the background, and it plays on everyone’s psyche here. Quite frankly, I think the Leafs did quite a number on the fan base here, but I don’t blame the fan base here for being a bit fragile. Imagine you had a great team ready to win the Stanley Cup, and four times you got taken out by the same team that’s down the road.”


Fantastic stuff. An excellent breakdown of why Ottawa fans are so insecure.

To be fair, watching a Sens game is pretty fatiguing.

Honestly, do Sens fans not get that this is likely their last chance for the next decade to see their team in the playoffs?

Is knowing that it's a meaningless run outweighing that?

That's a rather dumb statement.
