2018 NHL MOCK DRAFT: Brady Tkachuk is exactly the type of player to compliment the Senator’s centers

2018 NHL MOCK DRAFT: Brady Tkachuk is exactly the type of player to compliment the Senator’s centers

The Senators have gotten awfully goofy as a franchise. Flirting with trading their number one guy in Erik Karlsson all season with the organization and Karlsson seemingly having a falling out. The Cinderella story just 2 seasons ago when they surprised everyone with a trip to the Eastern Conference Final, Ottawa completely missed the playoffs in 2017-18. A player that seems NHL ready, or damn close to it in this draft can help elevate the roster quickly and cheaply. With the 4th overall pick in the Hockey Wilderness Mock Draft, the Ottawa Senators select Brady Tkachuk of Boston...

What the Sens can learn from the Cup finalists

What the Sens can learn from the Cup finalists

There are lessons to be learned from these teams For the 11th time in a row, the Ottawa Senators will not being playing in the Stanley Cup Finals. It might sting a little more this year, with the Sens coming within a double-OT goal last year of making it, and with people reliving some of the most memorable goals on Twitter recently: Mike Hoffman scored one of the loudest goals I’ve ever heard and I was just thinking about it so I’m adding it. Game 6 must win to for a game 7 and he just lets one rip top of circle. Perfect placement snipe pic.twitter.com/smptOBbfnA— sad delfino man...

Senators Part Ways with Scouts Justin Murray, Jimmy Blixt

Senators Part Ways with Scouts Justin Murray, Jimmy Blixt

The organization has yet to replace the two amateur scouts. Yesterday it was revealed that the Ottawa Senators had diminished their scouting staff by two members, and a website update today affirmed that those two members are Justin Murray and Jimmy Blixt. The duo were both part of the Sens’ amateur scouting team, with the regiment now being reduced to nine total members. Murray has worked for the Sens for five seasons, being hired back in 2013, likely due to being the great-nephew of then-GM Bryan Murray, as well as the son of then-AGM Tim Murray. He was assigned to cover the Ottawa...

Senators’ Late Round Draft Success

There’s no question the 2018 NHL Draft could be integral to the Ottawa Senators’ rebuild. Not only do they have the fourth overall pick, but also the 22nd overall pick, acquired as part of the Derrick Brassard trade to the Pittsburgh Penguins in February. With the fourth pick, the Senators are going to get a […] The post Senators’ Late Round Draft Success appeared first on The Hockey Writers.

Patrick Sieloff Signs Two-Year Extension

Patrick Sieloff Signs Two-Year Extension

The 24-year-old was named Belleville’s top defenceman. The Ottawa Senators have kicked off their off-season today, signing pending RFA Patrick Sieloff to a two-year, two-way contract extension. Sieloff, a 24-year-old defenceman, has been playing for the Sens’ AHL affiliate for the last two seasons since being acquired in 2016 from the Calgary Flames in exchange for Alex Chiasson. Known for his gritty play, Sieloff has become somewhat of a household name amongst Sens fans for his infamous hit on Clarke MacArthur during the 2016 training camp, setting MacArthur back almost an entire...

Sieloff signs two-year extension with Senators organization

Depth defenceman Patrick Sieloff, who has had more than his share of highs and lows in the Ottawa Senators organization for the past two seasons, has signed a two-year extension. Sieloff’s two-way contract — $675,000 in the NHL, $125,000 in the AHL in 2018-19 and $725,000/$170,000 in 2019-20) – is an illustration that the Belleville […]

Saying Goodbye for now

Saying Goodbye for now

After almost 3 years at Silver Seven Sens, Trevor Shackles is leaving the site for a new opportunity It’s been about four and a half years since I first began writing about hockey. I have also been at Silver Seven Sens since August 2015, and I’ve loved every single day of it. As a Senators fan who lives out in Richmond, British Columbia, I haven’t interacted with that many Senators fans in person, besides a few that I had met at Canucks games. For most of my life, I felt like I had been the only person cheering for this team, but that changed when I began writing about them. Since...

Senators Should Explore Trading Down in the Draft

Senators Should Explore Trading Down in the Draft

With a lack of draft picks in recent years, the Ottawa Senators should look to move down from either one of their first round picks in order to get better quantity The 4th spot in the 2018 NHL Draft is the highest that the Ottawa Senators have selected a player since they took Jason Spezza 2nd overall in 2001. Although they missed out on the top-3, it still represents a great opportunity for the Senators to get back on track. And while I have argued for years that they need to get a true top-end player in the top-5 of the draft, I believe that the smart move for this year would be to look...

Sterling Predictions Re-Visited: Part 4

Our final look back at our incorrect predictions We finish our look back at our predictions, looking at what we thought the team’s record would be. The Senators finished 28-43-11, the 67 points being good enough for 30th in the league. Needless to say, none of us predicted the team to be that bad. Also below, check out the final tally for our predictions on the season. Q: 6/8 of us had the Sens making the playoffs, but even Trevor predicted the Sens would get 88 points and just barely miss. Nobody saw this 67-point season coming (though Colin did comment the Sens could finish top of the...

Sterling Predictions Re-Visited: Part 3

Looking back on the lead point-getter and the first trade Moving on with our preseason prediction review, this time we look at who were thought would lead the team in points and who would be the first to be traded. Q: The writers were unanimous in picking Erik Karlsson to lead the team in points, and in a way they were right, though Mark Stone had as many points in 13 fewer games. What do you think it says about this team that both of its top point-getters missed more than 10 games? Was it a surprise for Mark Stone to lead this team in points? Trevor: I wouldn’t say it was a total...

Senators’ scouts preparing for any scenario as draft day draws nearer

The Ottawa Senators have two selections in the first round of next month’s NHL draft, but that doesn’t mean they’ll sit still. Pierre Dorion has been one of the NHL’s most aggressive general managers in his two years on the job and there’s always a chance the Senators could make a move with one of […]

Sterling Predictions Re-Visited: Part 2

Looking back at Bobby Ryan’s point totals Continuing revisiting our Sterling Predictions, today we look at two: predicting Bobby Ryan’s point totals (over/under at 40), and who would lead the team in goals. In that vein, we look back on our predictions. Q: We asked if Bobby Ryan would hit 40 points, and 5/8 were correct by saying he wouldn’t. However, even noted pessimist Trevor overpredicted at 34 points -- Bobby only hit 33. However, he was on pace for 44 points if finger injuries hadn’t kept coming back. Do you think Ryan would’ve hit 40 points if healthy? Do you think he still...
