Winning the cup is important.

Finishing deep is a good sign, if you're in a position to build on that success.

Sens got lucky with an easy path, they've lost some of the players that helped them, they have no quality youth stepping up to help them out, and their owner was too cheap to add any player worth a damn... doesn't look like they're in a position to build on last year's success.

Agree; I've seen many predictions for the upcoming year, the proof will be in the performance - I will say right now that Ottawa will have a very hard time making the playoffs this year. Teams trending up Leafs, Tampa, Carolina New Jersey, Flyers, teams trending down Ottawa, Montreal, NY Rangers.

Ottawa was featured on Kraft Hockeyville in PEI in perhaps the most important pre season game which was nationally televised and was played against N J Devils (a team that finished dead last in the East last season) Sens fans can sugar coat it all they want, the human pylon Phaneuf embarrassed himself in front of his home town crowd as they were destroyed 8-1 giving up 4 power play goals. The Sens are going nowhere - the sooner you admit it, the less painful this season will be. So Sorry Spatsoo.

Hmm it's possible that the worst teams in the playoffs all played each other....

Ottawa, Boston, the Rangers... all a bunch of scrubs.

Anderson and Karlsson are the players keeping that team afloat.

Gotta keep them around to ensure ongoing mediocrity.

beyond the obvious age issue, why sign kondon to an inflated price for a backup only to keep andersson over the same term?

seems like sens management doesn't know what they are doing.

Condon did a very good job stepping in for Anderson. His play allowed them to make the playoffs... They know they're going to lean on him more and more, but they're not ready to do a straight transition, in case he turns out to be another Hammond.

But yea, it's a lot of money to sink into goalies for a budget team. It'll be interesting to see who they cut to make it work.

Precisely and all three teams are bubble teams moving forward. Ottawa has a 36 year old goalie and has very little goaltending depth at the minor league level.

anytime you give $2.5M to a backup, you need to be sure of him. this is below nonis level management.

Reading the tea leaves on our chat with Pierre Dorion. I'd say Chabot & Brown start the year in OTT, Formenton goes back. But...we'll see.

will be good news for them once they finally announce it.

throwing chabott in the top 4 would have been painful.

i'm also glad they won't have the injury card to play to blame their poor start on.

More self serving muddle.

There are only three superstars in the NHL. McDavid, Crosby and Karlsson.

The performance Karlsson had in last year's playoffs was right off the charts for inspired play.

Remember we have Leaf fans saying Karlsson does not make the Leafs top 4 Dmen. And we are supposed to take these kind of comments seriously.

The Sens are built around Karlsson.

I believe he has an MVP year.

So funny. Hard to believe you guys are so bitter.

We all know the Leafs offered more money to Condon but he said no.

Karlsson plays 25 minutes a night because he is the best Dman on the planet.

And, here comes Chabot who played well over 40 minutes in the WJC gold medal game against Team USa.
