Predicting the Senators Season Stats Leaders

It looks like the Ottawa Senators aren’t “that young team” anymore. Equipped with a new general manager, new coaching staff and a few veteran player additions, the team has taken a step towards fixing its biggest weaknesses: leadership and special teams. One of their strong points, on the other hand, was scoring. It’s only realistic to expect them to take a step back from...

Senators’ GM Dorion says MacArthur ready to return, was ‘missed the most’ of any player

The Ottawa Senators’ Clarke MacArthur is arguably one of the most underrated wingers in the league, but a pair of early season concussions didn’t give him a chance to showcase why during the 2015-16 season. MacArthur’s first concussion this past season came during the pre-season, but the 31-year-old attempted to play through the injury, but staying in the lineup didn’t come...

2016-17 Season Preview: Ottawa Senators

As a Sabres fan, I thoroughly enjoy the dysfunction of the Ottawa Senators. When I look at them from a neutral point of view, they're incredibly frustrating. The Senators have arguably the best player in the NHL in Erik Karlsson in his prime and have done a horrible job filling out the rest of their roster. They have made brief playoff appearances in recent years but last year...

Senators disappointed in former first-round pick’s development camp

Development camp can be a make or break time for some young prospects. Generally if you are a first-round pick you shouldn’t have too much to worry about. If you are Thomas Chabot, the Senators' 2015 first-round pick, you apparently have plenty to worry about. Assistant General Manager of the Ottawa Senators Randy Lee had plenty to say to the Ottawa Sun about Chabot’s performance...

Trade deadline outlook: Ottawa Senators

Buyers or Sellers? Either. Ottawa has a plethora of talented young players, so it doesn't need to trade assets in order to build for the future. But this also is not quite a playoff team, and after acquiring a big contract in Dion Phaneuf, the Senators might want to clear up some cap space at the deadline. Team needs Defense. The Senators are the worst team in the NHL in shots...
