(am I doing it right?)
No kidding.

Why does everyone have to blow up every single time this team loses a single game? I was pissed after last night's game and I was upset with a few players, but my God, I can at least understand that it's a single game in a season where we've started 3-0 and are hindered on the blue-line with injuries/a weak roster.

One day people praise a certain player, the next, they try and run them out of town. We're no better than the general consensus of Leaf fans who do the same with their players.

Embarrassing.

Keep the second line together. I like having 2 scoring lines instead of staking the first line.
we have no scoring lines. just turris

Lehner is ready.

Is half a season in Bingo + 10-15 games in the NHL not good for his development?

He's ready to back up Anderson. He might be ready to challenge him for the #1 job.

Bishop is the expendable one. He has no future in Ottawa, he is blocking Lehner, and worst of all, he sucks.

He cost us a win.

Bishop should be alright, he alwayys seems to have a slow start. Didn't he lose his first game he played for Ottawa last season & then began to play well. And didn't he lose his first game in Bingo this yr & then began to play well. We have seen him play well & I have confidence he will again, he just needs a little time & patience.

Here comes the puck around the net and Bishop follows with Phillip's behind. Rather than stopping it for his D man or playing it forcefully out the other side to avoid a chasing Conacher, Bishop just skates around the net and lets it slide. Phillip's, thinking that his goalie has come out of his net with some sort of purpose in mind, stops his stride and is overtaken by Conacher who comes out the other side unchallenged with seemingly endless space to make a play. Conacher throws it quickly to the point where Sami Salo can unload one of his vintage slappers through a crowd for Ryan Malone to tip in for the game tying goal. Impossible to stop? Likely on it's face but what led to it was ***** communication between Bishop and his D.

This **** annoys me. The D man cannot be expected to read Bishop's mind every time he gets it into his head to do some ridiculous slight of hand manoeuvre behind his net.

This has happened more than once and it's something I've noticed since we got him. I don't buy the excuse that the D just isn't used to him. Sometimes stupid is just stupid.
I see... and well, I never said that Bishop was great last night. He looked like a very rusty goalie (at least for the NHL). He looked very nervous too, maybe he felt that pressure because he knows many scouts are after him right now.

That being said, I know he can do a lot better.... however I don't think he'll ever be good at handling the puck. I agree he made Phillips looked bad a couple times... I think that's why some people are on Phillips arsh

It was sarcasm... The "Am I doing it right?" at the end suggests that he was laughing at people panicking like 12 y/o girls.

Yeah, that's exactly what I am trying to say. We look like we have a serious inferiority complex and maniaco-depressive going from "over-confidence" to "blow everything up" from game to game... How can you be in glory one day and on suicide watch the next day?

Bishop did cost us the win. His horrid rebound control in the first goal, his horrific puck-handling that resulted into miss communication and SLOW retrieval to the net on the game tying goal as well. Anderson stops both those and we looking at a 4-2 victory. He was also so hesitant in net.

P.S. I'm actually one supporting Bishop but you can't blame anyone else on that loss than him.

This is the truth right here, folks. Bishop was worth his weight in gold when he stop-gapped us during a trip to the playoffs last year but he is no longer in the plans here. Lehner needs to be up here.

I was pretty mad about Bishop last night, but upon further consideration I realized that it's just ONE game -.- ... If he blows in a few more then I will be convinced he's crap, but until then, ONE game isn't anywhere near a large enough sample to size to draw conclusions.

Don't get excited folks I've figured out who's to blame for this loss.

It's squarely on Alex Auld. If he hadn't sucked so badly last year Bryan Murray would never have traded for Bishop when Anderson got hurt. This year Lehner would have been the backup and played this game. It goes without saying that he would have had a shutout. On top of that we'd have picked up a star player with that 2nd round pick.

the way the team has been playing it's not enough to win games against good teams. so no it's not enough for me.
there are good things about the team so far. the top 6 lines are not any of them. and that is the only thing i'm talking about here - top 6 chemistry. it's sub par right now.

but if you don't like listening to me, then how about the coach. he did not like anyone's game on friday.

Maclean was being a good coach when he said that, he didn't want to single out players and demoralize them early in the season. Calling out a first line veteran is OK at mid season, calling out anybody, especially rookies after the 4th game of the season is a great way to sour somebody.

Wow you expect a lot out of this young senators team. This team is in a rebuilding year and is fourth in the eastern conference but yet your are unhappy with productivity.

Per most nhl forecasters and predictions this team is not even suppose to be fighting for a playoff spot.

So far I would say the team is doing just fine. Ride Anderson and let the 1a and 1b lines play together and with time they will develop more chemistry.

you mean fumbles the puck like it is a hand grenade? I have never seen Anderson do that since he arrived, even at his worst.
