LOL! Burrows!

The owner overpays bad players which is cheaper than paying a fair price for great players.

- Cape Breton Bruins



Well that particular "bad player" helped send the Bruins to the golf course.

Yeah, cheering on those last place jays must be a lot of fun, or great, as you say.

Again, somehow you find room to criticize a team that has been in the playoffs recently, suffered a poop ton of injuries all over the lineup this year...

in a league where your pathetic little city doesn't even have a team.

What part of "glass houses" do you Sens fans not understand.

2nd assist when a pass bounced off his ass.

That is one of the main qualities of a Senators playoff warrior living up to his contract.

you keep saying the Sens owner is cheap ............ but he had no problem bringing in Burrows, and handing him a 2 year extension ........... and every time another player is re-signed, you always comment on how that player is now over paid ............ but you continue with the "cheap owner" narrative.

You can't have it both ways


Methinks you're just automatically negative about anything the Sens do, even though you continually contradict yourself in the process.


So are the Senators overpaying their players .............. or is the Owner to cheap to pay the players ........... which is it?


I know your answer will somehow be spun into both.

i don't think the pageux contract is bad. average salary for an about average player.

the burrows contract is junk. +$2M for what should be an amateur golfer...not good.

what'll be interesting is how they handle ceci, turris and stone. i suspect there will only be enough money for 2 of the 3.

will be funny to see dorion overpay ceci and sacrifice one of the other 2.

I'm not sure what you're point is. The Raptors are among the best in the NBA. The Jays have been among the best in the MLB over the past few years, although, are not having a good year. The Leafs are a favourite in the division, and shaping up to be among the best in the Eastern conference.

The odds on a major sports championship coming to Toronto in the next 5 years is high. I would even say the odds on multiple championships coming to Toronto is reasonably high.

Pageau contract is what you expect to give to a UFA of his calibre. So, it's a slight overpayment. The problem is that a team like Ottawa can't afford to be giving even slight overpayments to bit players when they already have some other bad contracts eating away at an already smaller budget.

You guys are getting more and more rattled as the realization you won nothing sets in, and then you see your team working, and failing, to shed salary in the off-season, while bringing in nothing. So you turn to your upcoming young players for hope, and then realize they are likely a few years away from reaching their peak, which will be mediocre.

But hey, one day you may get a new arena in which Habs and Leafs fans will continue to embarrass you.

Duh. Anybody who is older than 26 years of age was born before the Sens existed. Many are Leaf and Canadiens fans. Some like me have made a conscious decision to support the Sens even though I grew up a Leaf fan. But you will not find many Leaf fans among the under 25 crowd. The Sens made huge progress in expanding their footprint during the recent playoff run.

The Leafs and MLSE in particular have been voted by ESPN as the worst major league sports franchise for fans. Not an insignificant conclusion.

He's a (frank)ing idiot.

That poll is old. since then jays raps and Leafs have fared somewhat well.

Also with Matthews and Marner there will be a lot of Leaf fans 25 and under. Same with Oilers.

But spatso is just spewing his hilarious summer talk.

Kind of ironic he brags about the Sens for making the final four but dismisses, while trolling, the fact that since that ESPN poll, Jays and Raps have made the final four. Both teams adopted as "Canada's team", and the TFC finals was also there. Leafs are one of the most up and coming exciting teams in the league everyone has their eye on. It hurts Spatso. So he tries to hurt others back.

It is absolutely unbelievable that a fan of a team who can't fill their arena in the Semi-finals is somehow trash-talking Leafs fans about their growing fanbase.

At this point, it has been weeks since a Sens fan has made one relevant, thoughtful point. All they can do now is troll... with old stuff, and flat out stupid poop.

It makes me laugh to imagine how emotionally (frank)ed up he must be having "decided" to be a Sens fan.

The ESPN feature was about the Leafs being the worst franchise in sport. Had nothing to do with Raptors or Blue Jays. Where did that come from?
