Who's powering the Senators and Islanders?

Life after Jason Spezza is supposed to put the Senators in line for another struggle-filled season. So far that’s not been the case this season, however. The Senators are off to a great start. They opened the season with a 3-2 loss to Nashville, but then beat Tampa Bay 3-2, Florida 1-0, and Colorado 5-3 before capping it off with a 3-2 win over Columbus.  All told, the Senators...

Jared Cowen’s Name Enters the Rumour Mill

Missed the opportunity to post something about this yesterday, but according to Bruce Garrioch, the Senators may finally be ready to address the state of their blue line.

If the Senators Miss the Playoffs This Year, It’s Not Because of Bobby Ryan

In case you’re not familiar, Fire Joe Morgan was the blog that set the highest standard for hilarious sports criticism by taking some of the worst baseball columns written and proceeding to rip them apart paragraph by paragraph. Like countless others, I’ve ripped off their successful formula numerous times. It feels like it has been ages since I’ve taken the time to do a FJM...

Jared Cowen – The Poster Child For a Mediocre Blue Line?
