Cornwall Ontario – The Ottawa Senators bit first in the trade deadline sweeps dumping D man Dion Phaneuf to Los Angeles in what clearly is a cap deal.   The Sens will save at least $5M depending on what happens on with Marion Gaborik.

Ottawa Sens Dropping 1500 Seats Highlight Marketing Fail. By Jamie Gilcig 090717

Cornwall Ontario – I’m a secret Ottawa Sens fan.  Of the team, not so much ownership.   I think Ottawa has amazing hockey fans.   Good fans though can get frustrated.   High prices, having to travel to their rink in the boondocks rather than having a downtown rink.  A penny pinching owner. In a… Continue reading Ottawa Sens Dropping 1500 Seats Highlight Marketing Fail. By Jamie Gilcig 090717

Will the Ottawa Sens Move to Quebec City? by Jamie Gilcig MAY 23, 2017

Cornwall Ontario – A lot of chatter about the Sens not selling out the house for the playoffs is making the rounds.

Ottawa Sens Bring Back Chris Neil – Is Drouin Reachable? by Jamie Gilcig FEB 29, 2016

Sens Vet Chris Neil

Classy move by the Ottawa Senators in rewarding one of my faves, Chris Neil, with a contract extension for next season. The long time tough guy is a  great dressing room presence and has a pretty darn good year in limited minutes. Today is trade deadline day in the NHL and so far Ottawa has… Continue reading Ottawa Sens Bring Back Chris Neil – Is Drouin Reachable? by Jamie Gilcig FEB 29, 2016

The Ottawa Senators Need to Blow It Up & Rebuild for 2014/15 by Jamie Gilcig

CFN – Is it time to blow up the Ottawa Senators and do a rebuild or will a refit suffice?   Frankly cap limited teams in the NHL have very little hope of winning Lord Stanley’s Cup. The last team that wasn’t a big budget squad to win was the pre-cap 2006 Carolina Hurricanes.  It’s… Continue reading The Ottawa Senators Need to Blow It Up & Rebuild for 2014/15 by Jamie Gilcig

Would You Pick Up David Booth on Waivers for Your NHL Team? By Jamie Gilcig

CFN – The Vancouver Canucks have placed David Booth on Unconditional waivers for the purpose of using one of the get out of jail no penalty compliance buy outs.   I can’t blame them as he’s disappointed, especially at his cap hit vs expectations.
