Hello Sens fans,

I'm an Ottawa boy born-and-raised, but I have to say that it really irks me when people are suddenly acting like this team is underachieving. We knew from the outset this season that the Sens were going to be a young, defensive team that were going to struggle to find the back of the net.

Fast forward about four months, and now everyone has lost sight of the fact that, while they are our hometown team, the Sens still are an 8th-11th place hockey club.

Take out Karlsson, and remember that Anderson isn't 100%, it's a miracle this team is even in the playoff picture!

My verdict on this whole panic situation is pretty simple - the Jets don't have enough games left.

The Sens control their own destiny, and for the sake of their warm-and-cool fan base (one bad season = 2000 empty seats per night), I hope they make the playoffs.

What happens in the playoffs is pretty simple too:

Pittsburgh (if healthy): Get swept.
Boston : Get swept/Lose in Five.
Washington : Lose in Five/Six.
Montreal : Probably win because the Sens are better built for playoff hockey.

Thoughts?
