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...
