Cornwall ON – There are reasons why so many NHL teams are on a youth kick. The Sens are 0-3 into the NHL season and 0 for 15 on the power play after signing Sergei Gonchar to lead that unit. Relying on aging Daniel Alfredsson and Alex “Big Dawg” Kovalev along with Jason Spezza create a core that is older, slower, and not as gritty as the young and hungry kids flooding the NHL.
The good news for Sens fans is that Goalie Pascal Leclaire is looing like the real deal so far this season. It’s going to be a very long season for hockey fans in the Nations Capital.
Jaroslav Halak is 2-0 with his new team, the St. Louis Blues as they beat Anaheim 5-1 with two goals from Habs cast off Matt D’Agostini. The Ducks have been horrid this season so far being out shot 53-14 by the Blues. Former Montreal captain Saku Koivu scored the lone goal for the Ducks in the fight filled game.
The Islanders beat the Rangers in a 6-4 shoot out. Blake Comeau led the way with 2 goals and an assist and Rick DiPietro picked up the W.
Marty Brodeur and the Devils lost again this time to the Pengins 3-1; Marian Hossa was the difference as the Hawks edged the Sabres 4-3 in Buffalo; the Flyers doubled Colorado 4-2; Vancouver nipped the anemic Florida Panthers 2-1.
What do you think Hockey Fans? You can post your comments below.
If the Sen’s make it to the playoffs again, history will show that they will cave… They need some real heart and players, and unfortunately, have been lacking of that since the time they came out again… Always some crap going on.. anyone remember Yashin for example??
go eff yourself grimalot, you’re an idiot, stick to your toronto Maple leafs blog you sharsty pig
Hey Dave, never been a Toronto fan… Thanks for trying to toss that in my face though..
Seriously, after living in Ottawa for many years, even then, my heart sits with the Canadiens, which unfortunately, are off to a bad start and I can admit that, but my heart still rests with them.
Regardless of all that, I still lived in Ottawa for many years, have even given crap to Yashin to play properly instead of pulling his crap like he did.. for me, he kind of killed hockey, and Alfie has been doing his best to bring things on the up and up. Then again, don’t get me started on other players that have come and gone..
But the Sens, aren’t playing as they should in my opinion, and my opinion stands on that matter until I can see them for myself playing as they should! Like a fresh team, playing with skill, and kicking some butt instead of the sorry action I’ve seen going on with them this many years watching them. Don’t get me wrong, I hope they would pull it off, but after many years watching them not doing so, you know….
So get as foul as you want, if or when the time comes, I can admit I am wrong, but until they actually do pull something off, stuff it please…
Hey I can tell you for sure that Grimalot is not a Leafs fan. Way too much whining and complaining and has a leaning towards burning cars whether Montreal wins or loses. Us Leafs fans are a happy bunch and don’t really expect too much from our buds……except beating the crap out of Montreal and Ottawa.
Ah yes, Reg, always a true leafs fan, lol ;D Hey, I may be a Habs fan but I won’t be burning any cars, you can be assured of that… But as for Ottawa caving, I still stand by my arguments… May the leafs beat the Sens.. .may the Habs come and clean it all up after as should be proper! 😀
I’m with Reg. Toronto even celebrated 40 years without winning the cup. Tissues for Grim, lol.
LOL!!! 😀 Nice Willie! 😀
