Seems like a great character guy who really wants to excel here. Great news for the team. Kovalev, Leclaire, Cheechoo and Mickalev are great additions!

I'm so pumped for this season!

Is Rod Stewart on board to sing the "Forever Red" anthem to the tune of "Forever Young"?

"Be Red", "Forever Red", "A Force United"... Not to mention the whole playoff spartan fiasco....

Sure seems like they're on something.

Hey Sens fans, a curious Canucks fan here!

I saw a little clip on Connected this evening about Cheechoo and apparently he's skating on the Spezza line in camp. Can anyone who's been to the practices or followed the Sens training camp provide any insight as to how he looks in that position? Does it look like the two could possibly click like the Thornton-Cheechoo connection?

I wonder because I can't help but think Cheechoo is being put into a very similar situation he was in when Thornton arrived in San Jose. Spezza, like Thornton, is a slick passer and I can only imagine what Cheechoo could do with all those set-ups if all he needed was a change of scenery to get his career back on track. Does he still look like he's got the goal scoring upside?

Give me a seat on the Cheechoo train!

I am still sad that he got traded, and while I love the Sharks as a team (not the individual players), I have no sympatism for DW. Not just because of the Heatley trade (who I hate with passion), but also for his other moves. I don't think he made the team more competitive.

I will definetely root for the Sens. Skill-wise, they got a fair return for Heatley, and an excellent one in terms of character.

Can someone clarify this passage from a TSN Cheechoo article?

Quote:
The group of nine players released by the Sens includes defencemen Paul Baier, Mat Robinson, and Craig Schira, as well as forwards Kyle Wharton, Jason Bailey, Keegan Dansereau, Kaspars Daugavins, Matt Lowry and Brandon Svendsen...
Does that mean we've released them outright? Or did we just send them down to another level?

I think that most of these guys will attend the Binghamton Senators training camp & get a shot at making that team.

Released meaning they were cut. Those who were on try-out contracts are free to find other teams,the other ones who have AHL contracts go down there

Who wouldn't like this guy. Seems very genuine.

Here are some things you would never hear from Dany Heatley:

"Not focused on numbers... looking at playing a complete game. 'backchecking' to create turnovers and second chances at opportunities from them".

I have been a sens fan for a long time and I struggle with this. What is this 'back' checking? I thought hitting from behind was illegal.

'Bout friggin time. give him a shot on the first line and if it doesn't work, rotate Kovalev, Michalek and Cheechoo through the first line wing position.

I think this team is WAY underrated, based on the crap from this summer. I am excited for this season to begin!
