Are there usually questions allowed during these calls or is it just a presentation.
This is the first year that I have had a season ticket, it's a half season and I got the call invite, though middle of the day is a tough one.
One thing I am concerned about is if there is a deal and 82 games are to be played starting Nov. 2. That crams about 9 missed games onto an already loaded schedule. It is a stretch for me to get to the games I am already signed on for.
With more games in a compressed schedule there is no way I can do that, and it is going to cost me $$. I hope to sell off the extra tickets, but it is still putting the cram on season ticket holders, but I guess as long as the teams get to keep all our money and the players get all their funds that's OK!
I think we will be seeing more injuries to. There has been no training camp, and a compressed schedule will mean less recovery and practice time for the players. It coiuld be ugly.
There are usually questions allowed during these. They'll give instructions at the start of the call and throughout. It's usually something like, press * to indicate that you want to ask a question. Some Sens staffer then asks your name and what your question is. You are then in the queue and wait your turn, which may or may not come.
"What kind of sandwich is Bruce Garrioch eating right now?"
See this is the type of question they try to avoid, if it was for example "what kind of sandwich is garrioch eating at this very second" then one could answer quickly but to ask Sens management to identify all the various sandwiches garrioch would be eating is a little much time wise especially when you take into account toppings etc...
Sad that this is the closet thing to a GDT that we've got right now for the Ottawa Senators. As a hockey starved fan I plan to sit down with my lunch to watch this as a study break.
Tim Murray mentions Robin Lehner as Bingo's best player so far.
Lots of talk on Dziurzynski:
They expect him to play in Ottawa some day.
Couldn't play in the AHL when signed, but tons of raw talent, so they kept him there to develop.
If NHL season gets going:
Mika Zibanejad/Jakob Silfverberg/Mark Stone expected to fight for one or two jobs.
Mark Borowiecki expected to fight for the sixth/seventh role.
Had it been a longer camp more could've been up for grabs.
Ultimately coaching staff will go with who they think will help them win right off the bat.
Ottawa organized trip to Binghamton:
If the lockout continues they are currently working on plans to organize a trip to Binghamton for Ottawa fans.
Will be worn for the league mandated amount of games that third jerseys can be worn.
Shame noone asked about a full redesign of the current uniforms.
