I am not saying we have their top 6, but they sucked hind tit and crawled into the playoffs before winning it all. I guess it is wishful thinking that the same will happen to us. Something needs to give.

Yes, I am slightly passionate and crazy. Guess that comes with being a hockey fan.

Maybe were not! At least not this yr & IMO we are way to soft to be any where near as tough as LA.

Doughty, Voynov, Scuderi, Greene, Mitchell, Johnson.

They have a way better defensive core than we do now. Not to mention Jonathan ****ing Quick that year. Heck, Lehner or Andy can maybe do same but the defense is far off.

Nothing wrong with wishful thinking, but


Oh how I'd love for us to be the next LA!

There was a good quote from Sutter on NHL.com the other day.

To paraphrase, he said they aren't a "high-low" team, and that's what makes them a good team.

Now look at us.

So all we have to do is trade for Jeff Carter, Mike Richards and Dustin Penner (or three comparable players) then.

IIRC L.A were losses were because they couldnt score, they often would lose 1-0, 2-1, tight games. The sens on the other hand.....

I actually think Ottawa might be a better team this year. The problem is (and there's more than one), is that this is a new league this year (new divisional rivals, new rules, etc) AND most teams in the NE have gotten better. I think the Sens aren't as doomed as they appear, however certain changes could and probably should be done eventually (Spezza, Anderson, and Cowen come to mind). Michalek has been horrid too, but in my mind he was never really wanted by Sens mgmt.

I believe this team is comparable to the Kings team that won the cup. That year they struggled, made two huge trades (that they overpaid for) and surprised everyone in the end. By my count, Ottawa is one more big trade away from possibly following that route.

As for comparing the defenses of both teams....no one had problems with doing this LAST YEAR. Sens just have some kinks to figure out, some players to develop (Ceci, Wiercioch, possibly Cowen if he's not traded), and with time they might even be better than the KIng's 'd'.

I can remember back in the day comparing Karlsson's rookie stats with Doughty's, arguing Karlsson's were better....and NOBODY agreed with me that the two were comparable then.

Now, most would probably say Karlsson's better. Hindsight being the key.

This run we've been on seems a lot like the one they had for their first SC.

Meh

I'd rather we not compare ourselves to one of the best teams in the NHL on the back of a hot streak

Let's see if this team can be as dominant as the Kings were in 2012

The Kings rolled through the tough West in 2012 with ease. Let's not get carried away here...
