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?

Well i wouldnt call it meaningless. I am sure its been a lot of fun to watch as a fan. also its not over yet

But it could push them further down an all in path.
I dont really see what other option they have

That's a rather dumb statement.

It's not a statement, it's a pair of questions.

Just trying to identify the reason Sens fans aren't going to games, beyond saving their money for preseason cfl tickets one month away.

it's a little overstated. but would you really argue with the statement "this senaturds core is not built to win a cup, and will need a full rebuild before they do"?

they may scrape into the playoffs here and there, but they can't compete with a truly elite team like the penguins. cup winning teams tend to have 3 or more elite players, and some very good depth. the senaturds don't have anything close to that. and those players are near impossible to acquire other than drafting very high.

They won't need a full rebuild, they will need to add however.

It's hard to discuss it seriously with you because your hatred jades your views. Karlsson is a generational Dman, wether or not you agree.

He's excellent defensively, because he limits chances by turning the puck up ice. He's not that stay at home type that just guards the front of the net.

If he were a Leaf you'd be calling him the best ever.

The only thing he's not good at is 1 on 1 defending. He gets beat 1 on 1 more than most top dmen. Nobody can exit the zone better than him in the whole league though. His style of D is how the NHL is played now. It's how you win.

if he truly is good at limiting chances then why do shots against, chances against, and goals against all go up with him on the ice, even though he gets cushy deployment? (I.e. very high offensive zone deployment, very low dzone deployment, and relatively easy Qualcomp among first pairing d).

that just doesn't sound like someone limiting chances. sounds like someone getting a lot, at the cost of giving up a lot.

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!
