Re: [Hockey] [2013] Ottawa Senators Season Thread

Spezza out indefinitely, to have (minor) back surgery.

Herniated disk surgery. Could be 6 weeks, could be 10, could be ???? Hopefully he's back by the end of the season, but I'd prefer to err on the side of caution and keep him out the whole season if it means he'd be ready for next year. Cowan is already out long term and I don't want him back early just for the sake of him playing, and I feel the same way about Spezza.

For replacement, Turris will now be the top centre, and Z-Bad / Regin / Smith / O'Brien are all centres so we've got options. There is also Da Costa in Bingo and possibly Derek Grant, but I think J-G Pageau will need more time down in Bingo and I'm not sure at all about Wacey Hamilton.

Andy starts again tonight. Ride the hot hand, NHL 1st star for January.

Fun fact: Anderson has not allowed a goal in any game after the Senators have scored (shootout aside).

Complete and utter robbery by the refs today. Tying goal disallowed on the weakest Goaltender Interference call I've ever seen. Even Habs fans were saying it should have been a goal.

But then, the refs were making horrible chintzy calls against both teams all game.



Anyone

@teksavvy.com

... did someone yell replacement refs ??

Bad game for Andy last night (bound to happen eventually), but the rest of the guys found some scoring - including one from Phillips and a pretty one from Neil. 49-11-4 all-time when Phillips scores!

But raise your hand if you thought Chris Phillips would be tied for 3rd in goals for the team so far. Or, well, ever.

A couple of notable people around the NHL that have fewer goals than Chris Phillips so far this season (though most have played 1 or 2 fewer games):

Brad Richards
Evgeni Malkin
Taylor Hall
Rick Nash
Milan Michalek (Ouch)
Alex Ovechkin
Ilya Kovalchuk
Daniel Sedin
Phil Kessel

And more points than:

Dion Phaneuf
Tomas Kaberle
Scott Hartnell

Seriously.... WTF? I mean, I get that some players are going to have slow starts, but they're being outscored by a 34 year old who has a career pace of .066 goals per game (regular season)!

Hi Everyone

The Sens have not made an official app for the Z10 yet, but the device has the ability to run android app (alot not all) once converted to BAR format

Anyways, a guy at crackberry.com converted this for me, and I thought I would share it with you
»dl.dropbox.com/u/2919430/com.ati···_111.bar

BTW the Z10 is AWESOME
***Note it takes a minute to load the data once the app is started for the first time***

Here are instructions on how to sideload on the Z10

Crawford is 8 minutes of game time away from taking back the Wins leader position though.

Edit: Looks like I spoke too soon on Crawford.

This is very, very not good:

"Erik (Karlsson) suffered a laceration to his left achilles, which will require surgery to repair. He will be out indefinitely."

They were managing to keep their head above the water without Spezza, but without Karlsson as well...

Someone got a face-on picture of Karlsson when he was going down. I'll warn you, the expression on his face is difficult to look at for Sens fans.

Probably above the boot -- tendon goes up several inches from the ankle.

It might have been dirty, but I don't think this was his intent. He was either trying to drive Karlsson into the boards, or slewfoot him and it went horribly wrong.

That's got to be from after the one I posted. Karlsson is on the way down to the ice there.

#4 scorer in the league last year - out for extended period of time. (Spezza)
#7 scorer in the league last year and current Norris Trophy winner - out for extended period of time. (Karlsson)
Top pairing defenceman - out for the year. (Cowan)

Regin, Latendresse, Michalek are all hurt in Ottawa
Hoffman & Stone hurt in Bingo

This season = over. With Spezza out, the Senators have the youngest set of centres in the league, we've been playing 1/2/3 Bingo blueliners in every game this season, and now were going to see them even more. This team is not going into the post-season this year -- no team in the league would be when losing three of their TOP players for most/all of the season. I don't see Murray making a big trade now, but he's surprised Sens fans in the past so who knows. Ryan O'Reilly? I'm not sure we need another young centre, given that next season we'll have Spezza and Turris for 1 & 2.

Bright side: more ice time for Wiercioch and Benoit, and more chances for Bingo players like Grant, Cowick, Borowiecki and Gryba.

I have to agree. I had hope they would make the playoffs until last night. Now I feel like a Leaves fan, I'll I've got left are prayers.

Oh well, time to see how far an AHL team can get by on goaltending and coaching in the NHL.
