Preview and Open Thread: Chicago Blackhawks @ Ottawa Senators

Will we finally see a win? After starting the season with two straight losses against the Leafs, the Sens are looking to get their first pre-season win tonight against the Hawks. There have been a lot of positives in the first two games regardless of what the scores have said including Tkachuk’s impressive debut, Andy playing a solid (half) game against the Leafs, promising speed and talent from Formenton and Bobby Ryan remaining uninjured. Personally, I am mostly excited to see Filip Gustavsson in action tonight and hopefully see a more comfortable and confident Formenton. The game is...

Gustavsson to see first pre-season action Friday

The goalie of the Senators future will get his chance to shine Friday, before the goalies of the present run the table for the rest of the pre-season. Filip Gustavsson, who could be bound for Belleville of the AHL this weekend, is expected to replace Mike Condon midway through Friday’s game against the Chicago Blackhawks. […]

Interview with Aimee Deziel

Interview with Aimee Deziel

The Sens’ new chief marketing officer spoke about the infamous Melnyk video, logos, third jerseys and more. The Ottawa Senators were kind enough to invite a handful of writers and influencers from social media to their pre-season game yesterday, where we had the opportunity to speak with numerous staff members. Among them were Pierre Dorion (interview transcript can be found here), and Aimee Deziel, the new chief marketing officer of six weeks. Both were very generous with their time, and Deziel in particular was really open to feedback on everything from the game-day experience, to logo...

Senators put emphasis on power play

Thursday was an active moving day for the Ottawa Senators, getting down to more serious business at the midpoint of training camp. First off, coach Guy Boucher divided the players into what have effectively become NHL and AHL working groups and each had separate practices. On that front, there were no major surprises, but significant […]

Senators Need to Keep Mark Stone

On Sept.18, an article about Ottawa Senators right wing Mark Stone was released by TVA Sports. In the article (written in French), it said Stone “does not want to play in Ottawa anymore” and that he is “frustrated” by the direction of the team. This is coming just before the season and right after the […] The post Senators Need to Keep Mark Stone appeared first on The Hockey Writers.

Interview with Pierre Dorion

The Sens’ general manager spoke yesterday on the rebuild, analytics and more. The Ottawa Senators invited a group of writers from social media yesterday to attend the team’s pre-season game.

Below is a full transcription of the 18-minute interview, with some brief thoughts added in between. On the potential of adding another assistant general manager... “Yeah, there are. Peter was here, the first time that...

Sterling Predictions: Bobby Ryan’s Injuries

Sterling Predictions: Bobby Ryan’s Injuries

Will Bobby’s fingers stay healthy this year? Bobby Ryan has struggled with injuries basically since making it to Ottawa. Last year, finger injuries limited him to 62 games. Will Ryan play more than 60 games this year? Bonus: predict his number of games played. Spencer: This is Bobby Ryan’s year! He’s going to play in 70 games this season, missing 12 with a broken finger of course. Ary: Yes, though I’m not sure if all will be with the Senators. I’ll go with 71 games. Colin: The only time Bobby Ryan has played less than 60 games in a season was during the 2012-13 lockout year, so...

Thursday’s FTB: The big free agent signing scores two

Thursday’s FTB: The big free agent signing scores two

Two games into the season and we’re already in re-runs The Toronto Maple Leafs once again defeated the Ottawa Senators in pre-season action last night and once again the score was 4-1, and once again a big new free agent signing scores two goals. It wasn’t John Tavares this time, but another new face: the recently bought out Tyler Ennis. Is Kyle Dubas a secret genius? Did he know what he was getting on the cheap after the Minnesota Wild bought him out? Maybe. But it’s probably that the Ottawa Senators are just really, really, really, bad. Here are your morning links, but first, the...

Cheaps main – Senators need Anderson now more than ever

If you can believe it, the Senators season almost took yet another turn for the worse in the dressing room on Wednesday morning. As a bare-footed Craig Anderson answered questions from a couple of us, I accidentally stepped on his toe. If that thing swells up and he misses any time at all, the already grim outlook […]

Senators fall to Leafs again, this time on home ice

OK, let’s begin with the positives. In the first home-ice glimpse of the post-Erik Karlsson Ottawa Senators, the checkmarks start where they have to start if they have any hope of being competitive when the games matter in October. Goaltender Craig Anderson was solid in the 4-1 pre-season defeat to the Toronto Maple Leafs at […]

Senators’ Stone dismisses speculation about his future

Get used to it, folks. Until they get signed or traded, Mark Stone and Matt Duchene will be the subjects of rumours, innuendo and speculation this season. Early this week, it was Stone’s turn. Long-time TVA sports reporter Louis Jean stated on a talk show that the Senators winger is frustrated with the rebuilding approach […]

Familiar digits in unfamiliar colours for a couple of Sharks turned Senators

This season Chris Tierney will be the second Senator to wear No. 71. He chose that number rather than becoming the first to wear No. 50, as he did with the Sharks. “I wore it in junior and minor hockey,” Tierney said of 71, which belonged to Nick Foligno from 2008-2012. “I was thrown 50 […]

The Senators are optimistic about being a team tonight. Preseason Game: #2 Maple Leafs at Ottawa Senators Time: 7:30 p.m. EDT Watch: TSN4, TSN5, NHL Live (blackouts may be in effect) Our game preview with lines is here.
