Silfverberg definitely doesn't want to play there, and I don't expect Zibanejad would've agreed to spend a full season there, either. That would be true regardless of André's comments or if it was the best AHL city ever.

What? I thought we had Silfverberg on the record saying he is fine with the AHL.

Lehner stopped 36 of 38.

Maindot finds a way to be critical of Lehner virtually every game. His opinion is biased beyond belief.

So what? A bad goal is a bad goal. There's nothing wrong with saying things like they are, and of all the ways to put it, that was hardly the worst.

What I'm suggesting is that Binghamton's reaction was ridiculous, and that perhaps Binghamton isn't a good fit moving forward. FFS it's not like they are shattering attendance records. You always hear Cornwall mentioned as a possible destination. There are like 50000 people in Cornwall and even then I can almost guarantee similar numbers to Bingo.

If Markham gets that brand new arena, and that's a big if, we would be much better served having our prospects there. Or if Vancouver looks at moving their affiliate out West, that creates the opportunity for AHL realignment. The organization has to pursue a city that will provide a professional arena, high levels of fan support as well as offering the kind of entertainment amenities that a 21 year old would want to partake in.

If you don't believe that these statements coming from AP are damaging to the organization, you're crazy. Players talk. I don't want to hear that our prospects hate playing in the AHL, because of the city they live in. I don't want to hear that our international prospects would contemplate going home just to be free of the dreariness of Binghamton. I don't want to hear anything. This environment they are playing in is not good for development and I sincerely hope the Senators organization pulls the plug. Enjoy booing an empty arena.
You are an ass. Plain and simple. Have you ever been to Binghamton? Watch a game in our arena with our fans? Seen how we support our team?

F you dude, why don't you take a drive down and I'll go 5 for fighting with you.

Filatov was unhappy playing for the Columbus affiliate as much as for Bingo. Evidently Pavol Dimitra was very unhappy playing in PEI.

Players want to be in the NHL

The reaction by the fans in Bingo is exactly the same as any other fans under similar circumstances.No one wants to hear anyone, least of all a player for a team you support, take shots at your home town.

I do think the statements were unfortunate but he is hardly the first player to complain about being in the AHL.
This. Wasn't the first player to say stupid *****, probably won't be the last.

And this.

Why is it just the Euro players? That's the question you should be asking. Bunch of pansy ***** if you ask me, suck it up and do your time. If you want to enter the NHL Entry Draft you better be prepared to do some time in the minors, I don't care what city you play for.

I think people quickly forget what was said once Petersson made those comments. The paper that did the article on Petersson's interview is not supposed to be taken seriously. They take things out of context and make the readers interpret it the way they want.

Some Swedish posters even came on this board to warn us... but we are still surprised about it

People still don't get it. Take EVERYTHING you read in the medias with a big grain of salt. Gosh, people are so slow to learn


All that being said, I really hope we move the Sens affiliate somewhere else... They have deserving fans and everything but I think a good portion of them are still "special" people. But it's not really the reason why I'd like the Sens to move the AHL team. They could move it closer to Ottawa so call-ups would be even easier. Would also be great for Sens fans who could go there and watch our prospects at first hand. Also, our prospects could use some extra motivation to play in the AHL. Lehner and Petersson aren't the firsts to get bored in Bingo, and they won't be the last. We don't want our prospects to die of boredom and just "ride it on cruise control" because they lack motivation

You could easily find many other reasons.

This. Maindotc has been a broken record about Lehner for a very long time, everything he says about the subject should simply be ignored. It's tolerated trolling I guess.

Good goal or bad goal I don't care, if it's Maindotc saying it, it never happened. hahaha that's how much biased he is for me

Yeah right, its pretty clear that Lehner punched your mom in the face or something, thats why noone takes your opinion on him seriously. How comes you didn't mention his 36 saves or when he stood on his head last game, never any praise for Lehner just negativity, thats why no one takes you seriously.

I think you just answered your own question. It's this welcoming and non-prejudiced mentality that they are trying to avoid.

It wouldn't be the first time Lehner let in a soft goal, we have seen him allow soft goals too. He has had a rough yr so far & he had a tough time last yr in the regular season as well. It was his MVP play in the Calder Cup run which make Ottawa fans optimistic about him being an elite goaltender in Ottawa for yrs to come.

But that being said unless Murray makes a move to obtain another goalie for this franchise Lehner is going to be the goalie of the future for this franchise. I assume he will be a backup next season in Ottawa & eventually in yr two or three will challenge Anderson for the starting role. I could also see after Anderson's contract is over that he is re-signed as the backup to Lehner. This would give Ottawa a vet/young player combination in net for the next 5 to 7 yrs.

If Vancouver moves their AHL affiliate, I say we move AHL Senators to Manitoba... at least it is a reasonable city. It would also possibly garner some Ottawa Senators fans.

Sorry Bingo, but it is clear you don't know how to treat a hockey team. I've heard some of your fans say it is a storage space for NHL players -- you're friggen right it is.

If you don't like European players or a Hockey team, or players that are human beings... Canada will take them off your hands.

Phillips played in Fort McMurray, for the Oil Barons. You wanna see a small town that supports a team, go there.

Well I'm quite sure that there are many of us who don't mind at all that Bingo is the affiliate of the Senators & doesn't detract at all from players reaching their potential. In my mind it has more to do with the coaching staff & players as to how well the team does as we witnessed last yr by Bingo winning the Calder Cup. I recall the majority of people on here being very satisfied with Bingo as the affiliate then. And let's not forget all the great writeups that we have been getting from some of the posters from Bingo to keep us informed regarding the team. I miss BingoSensFan he was great with his analysts.

This one small incident should not take away from the fact that the organization & some of us are satisfied with Bingo as the farm team even though maybe a few players are not, you can't please everyone. Having a franchise out west makes little sense, it's good to have the farm team closer in order to be able to callup players quickly. While some would love to live & work in New York City, Los Angeles, Toronto or Montreal it's not always benfitial to an AHL franchise to be in the same city as an NHL team. I think you guys have done a pretty good job of supporting the team & this incident should not take that away. Afterall, you are still a Championship city until someone else takes the title away. Good luck.

Sounds like there are some "special" people up in Ottawa too. "Die of boredom", really dude, most of the time your comments never cease to amaze me. This players are suppose to be professionals, this is their CAREER, their JOB. They chose to enter the draft, they chose to sign a deal with the Ottawa organization, playing in the AHL is part of it.

As a fan you should be ashamed of Petersson's comments. No one wants their city trashed on. I've never came on this forum and trashed the City of Ottawa, I've never been there. It's just common human decency for most people. Obviously there are a few of you who have none.

I hate how people like you come on here and make generalizations about the fans in Binghamton. You do it all the time and I call you out on it every time. Just stop it. It seems like there is a pretentious attitude with some fans that the fans of the minor league affiliates don't matter. Frankly, that's ********. We are fans just as much as you are. We want a winner, we want our players to be supportive of the game on and off the ice.
