So glad Zib is on the 4th line. He deserves it with all those chances and points. Can't have that.

That's why Mac put COLIN ****ING GREENING on the ice with the goalie pulled. COLIN GREENING. Jesus.

OK I figured it out.

We are a lottery team this year and pick in the Top 10. Or the Ducks do... there is a huge uproar and Spezza and Anderson are traded. Ryan is obviously going to walk so he gets traded too. We are one of the worst teams in the league in 14-15 and all looks lost..........

but wait

We win the lottery and draft Connor McDavid. Then we fire the coaching staff, hire Dale Hunter, sign a couple decent UFAs, and win the Cup.

Maclean seems to be happy with both Mika and Conacher so maybe we'll see more of them and less of Neil in the next game.

The fact that we have Borowiecki playing 15 minutes a night scares me. The fact that we have Cowen playing 20 terrifies me

In no universe should Zibanejad play 4th line, and 5 minutes in the first 3 periods is inexcusable. That Colin Greening extension hurts already

The team did play good. They didn't play great, but they weren't terrible. If it wasn't for some soft goals by anderson, we could have won.

So Pesky What a great team. I love Zibinajed for the 4th line, he's the perfect 4th line player. He's getting a bit too much ice time though with that goal and assist, we might need to cut some of that ice time so he can perform better in other areas. Greening has been playing great, loving Neil this season, let's keep increasing his minutes. Anderson you've been fantastic all year. Maclean your a gem, your coaching decisions are outstanding. Melynk my man, when you said we're a budgeted team you were dead on, great team you put together. The 2013-2014 Ottawa Senators people

I think they are going to trade Greening. That is why he has been on the ice.

Lets look at the facts.

Greening is a vet. Thats literally all Mac needs to justify limiting the kids.

Pageau shouldn't have been sent down. Looks like the coaching staff is going to take the easy way out this year, demote/bench kids in order to shake things up.

Yakety Sax is is beast, thanks Benny.

MacLean isn't a moron or anything guys. He can only use the tools he has. I mean, there isn't a whole lot of talent here and we aren't getting all-world goaltending from our goalies so...at some point the message is going to have to change. Either the team plays very tidy precise hockey or a trade needs to happen to inject some enthusiasm in there.

Ryan and Turris on the Koivu goal.

Anyway, overall it was a good to great game by the Sens. Anderson let in some softies and there were some soft plays in the defensive zone, but things are starting to look better outside of the crease.

With that said now the goalies need to get their heads in the game. Ottawa will turn it around. It sucks to lose this one, but there were a lot of positives to come out of the game.

You would need to actually watch the game to make comments that are sensible.

Where was the captain in all of this?

It gives us a more balanced lineup and I thought the forth line played with real energy tonight as well. Still love Neil but I don't think he needs as much ice time as he has been getting.
