Great 3 line!
Great thing to get Silvferberg in the first line.
How about goaltending? Is it enough good?
How about defense?
Gonchar is better defenseman than 10 years ago.
He is smarter now in his own end.
Karlsson is excellent like we knows but Phillips is third big key-player for the team.
He blocks shots, defends well of own area and is strong defensive defenseman who can score about 20 points at best.

Alfredsson is big key-player again although hes very old guy for hockey player.
I think Ottawa has the changes to make a Playofss but i am not sure of that because of questionable goaltending.

I heard the Devils first game is against the Jets on that same day. Obviously, people have their heads up their asses.
Devils John Madden being interviewed:
Interviewer- How does it feel to cover Gomez?
Madden- I don't know. I don't cover 3rd line centers.

If Anderson can keep his form we should be fine, he actually won us some games last year. We have Lehner waiting in the wings to take over so I'm not too worried. Ottawa has never hurried a prospect into the NHL. So when he does come he'll be ready.

Alfredsson should benefit from the shortened season. The 'Stache' has said that he might not play every game in the condensed schedule to keep him fresh should we make the playoffs.

I am worried about our defense at the moment. I wish Cowen was healthy. I don't know what to think of Method as I've not seen a lot of Columbus games. Phillips is one of favorite Sens right after Neiler. He is a pretty good stay at home D and I thought he'd make a good pairing with Kid K, especially when Karlsson jumps into the rush you have ole reliable on the back end. Gonchar is another player that should benefit from a shortened season, so he should play well.

I'd expect Ottawa to make a trade for a D should we be in the playoff race later in the season.

So far among Sens Fans there is lot's of optimism for this team.

Maybe it's a internet hoax where every team is rumored to play against the Jets on the 19th. I dunno.

Solid win versus Winnipeg today. Karlsson still looking like a stud with a goal and assist. Anderson also looked really good in net.

The Greening-Smith-Neil line played with a lot of energy.

Erik Karlsson gets injured after Matt Cooke brings his skate blade down on the back of his ankle, looked like a deep cut to me.

This is very bad news indeed.

With EK and Spezza it may be to much to overcome... Anderson must maintain his awesome play....Neil smucked Cooke a couple of times but it looked incidental.....

Looked like a bit of a kick to me. Though Cooke may have legitimately been trying to regain his balance.

Wonder if he'll be suspended. I'm sure he'll end up in Shanny's office at least.

Tim,

Normally I would give Cooke the benefit of a doubt but earlier in the game Gonchar slapped a shot at Cooke and he took exception to it. Gonchar even said in his intermission interview that he wasn't happy with what he did.

Now knowing Cooke's repuation and that he is a dirty rat one has to think.

This looked like a tie up. Karlssons ankle support seemed loose or floppy to me, allowing Cooke's skate in to damage. Did not look intentional, bad timing/consequence....

I don't think Cooke would kick a guy in retaliation. He knows that if he did that it would end his NHL career.

But I didn't see the game; just the play, so I don't know. I can only guess.

For fuck sakes!!!!

Kreider low bridges Craig Anderson in a 1-0 game. Couldn't put any weight on it on his way to the dressing room.

Can this team please fuck off with the injuries!!!!

9 days after the fact Karlsson comments on his injury and whines like a bitch. And calls Matt Cooke a meaniepants and gives him the silent treatment.

Maybe the reason they're having such bad luck is because their whole organization acts like spoiled children.

He actually said that he didn't think Cooke cut him on purpose, but still somehow holds a grudge and thinks he was trying to hurt him. I guess Norris Trophy winners aren't allowed to be hit?
