It was nothing about Yakupov's celebration. Nothing about Yakupov actually. It was about Whitney and Morris. Yakupov just happened to be besides both of them when it happened.

So, not sure how this 'gonna become a target' thing comes in here.
Oh I did. I sitll think he was gonna become a target lol.

Our players do go on twitter after games (only after we win I think). But they keep it limited. I too like it this way.

That player will get slapped with a nice suspension then.

NHL is about marketing to the fans not to the players.

Players are just the cows.

Come on Ulfie, we know players will take their sweet chance when he has the puck. Unless we are talking about Matt Cooke.

#Senators expected 2 announce Jason Spezza will undergo surgical procedure on his back. Club doesn't considered this major surgery I'm told.

I don't get how the Sens are doing what they are doing.

Their roster is absolutely LITTERED with AHL caliber players. Daugevins? O'Brien? Condra? Greening? Boroviecki? Benoit? Regin? Even Zack Smith isn't anything to write home about. Zibinajed/Silfverberg, while promising, are very young still and nothing I'd want to rely on yet. EVERY single team has guys of equal skill/caliber all through their organization. Put these guys on the trading block and they are getting you what? 3rd/4th round picks?

Alffy is 40 for crying out loud. Phillips is a borderline top 4 dman now. Gonchar is like 38.

I look at their roster and just can't comprehend how, for the life of me, they are a "good" team. It has to be their strength down the middle. Spezza/Turris, Karlsson and Anderson have been great. Other than say 5-6 players, the rest of their roster leaves a LOT to be desired.

When you have a good foundation, you can get by with AHL'ers everywhere else on the line up.

Spezza #1C
Alfie is still decent
Karlsson 22 year old Norris winner
Anderson has been FANTASTIC. He hasn't given a 2nd, 3rd or OT period goal yet. He's been that good.
and
Michalek/Turris who are off to a good start.

That's basically how I summed it up at the end.

It really goes to show you what a #1 C, #1D man and very good goaltending can do for you.

Yep. The Senators have about 6-7 players that are playing really good right now and if they can continue on a bit more, they're essentially a lock for the playoffs even if they stumble later on.

Also let's not forget coaching. Paul MacLean was a great hire, at least 10 times better than Clouston.

Ouch.

Always liked Spezza. Don't know why. But I did make my wife return the vintage Spezza jersey she got me for Christmas, and get the Ovechkin one.

Can't be having any Sens jerseys around here.

Anderson has been out of his mind this year.

That's gotta be a big buzzkill for them, huge loss. Their team is playing so well.

Calling it right now, the Northeast is going to get decimated by injuries this year...except for Boston because they have all the luck

A good goalie and franchise defender covers over a lot of issues.

Bring on the goalie controversy. Luongo starting third in a row, and against Chicago no less.

Luongo has been amazing so far this year, and cory has been "solid", I guess you ride the hot hand, but wow.
