Realistic Expectations the rest of the year?

Hi everyone,

I am a new poster to this board and to this website after being a long time reader of over 7 years. Anyways I have a question for everyone. What are some realistic expectations the rest of the season. I have been pondering this all day and haven't been able to come up with questions. And when I ask people around me all they say is miss the playoffs and tank for a good draft pick! Is that even practical?? I don't, this is a very important season for the Senators and a very important year of development for this team and players such as Zibad, Silf, Turris, Wierchoich etc. And a season to continue to build the hockey program in Ottawa from the minors up!

But what do you guys think are realistic expectations now that Spezza and Cowen are done for the season which Cowen was a while ago. How does everyone think we are going to finish? All go on first and say I do believe we are going to miss the playoffs, have trouble scoring goals some games, have alot of adversity etc. Its all in retrospect with a young inexperienced team, and if we make a trade it will be to sell to me if we continue to lose. If we are in the playoff race don't expect anything to big, Murray won't and will not compromise the future unless it can help for the long term.

And I have a question, if Murray made the trade with Columbus which he could of if Nash said yes, would you guys have traded Zibad, Lehner, Foligno and a first. All be honest! I would have jumped off the roof if that trade was made. Zibad Lehner will be so prolific and prudent for the future, the first would have costed us big time especially in such a deep draft, etc. It would of inflated our farm system and Nash alone wouldn't of made this team better. What are your thoughts ??
