Benoit. I loved to watch him. He skated so akwardly...like he just completed a horseback ride from Vancouver to Halifax - with no saddle.

He was pretty useless at fighting too, but as you say, he was a gamer. Full credit to him for still being in the NHL, and with a pretty decent team. I don't think he's ever going to be a top 6, but with his talent level he could have done a lot worse than he has.

Radek Bonk!

The homeless-looking wonder. Was always, always touted to be our number one center and was never really comfortable with that role. Nobody could grow facial hair like Bonkie.

Someone here had a really funny anectode about him ... they found his wallet on a golf course during the summer and returned it to him. He was drunk.

Played with Hossa often. Scored a wrister in either game 6 or 7 of the ECFs in 2003 (I might be thinking of Arvedsson?...they were v. similar goals). Frequently accused of being a floater.

The only goal he scored for us was so hard, it went right through the net!

Another deadline pick up. IIRC he got hurt during his brief time here.

Andre Roy


Still my favourite sen. I bet i have the only Andre Roy jersey in existence. Drop them with anybody, always trying to crank the fans up. Loved to take stupid penalties at stupid times. The 15 year old kid i was then loved him, now i'd probably hate him. That 01-02 season with him and neil in his first year was great.

I think thats how you spell his name..what is there to say. He scored no goals, I remember a few times near he end of the year he was put out with the good guys on the PP to try and get him a goal, but he just couldnt do it..I think he got traded to Florida, what happened to him?

Edit: he got traded to Minnesota

The year after his no goal season he caught fire early on with Minnesota but got a pretty serious shoulder injury and I think had to retire because of it.

Jody Hull

I don't know if I've ever hated someone more than this guy. Absolutely useless when he played for the Sens.

Sick player. Sick shot. Super sonic speed. Killed Philly. Killed Tampa. Secret weapon. Injury prone (only because of the sick way he plays). Kicked many players in the nuts. Arguably Ottawa's most talented player in it's history. One day will "eat his lunch" - Hitchcock.


I remember Pitlick and most of these other players but I only started follwing hockey since 97 or 98 so I don't remember too much on how they played.

Too soon man. I'm still pretending he's dead. Strangely, the loss is easier to deal with that way.

Jani Hurme: Solid backup, goalie or goon. Really I loved this guy, I was hoping for better from him or then Prusek after Jani got traded tough break with the random injury.

Patrick Traverse: He was the best at... he was really good when... nobody could...ah... he's... ah... tall, right, he was tall

Our favourite whipping boy. A man of glass - he was so injury prone. But did he ever have a slap shot from the point - when it actually was on target.

Andre Roy

I have never seen anyone kiss the boards so many times. Oh he'd try to make the hit, but almost always miss. The sound was deafening, the plexiglass would shake and rattle, and he would emerge from kissing the boards with a lop-sided grin on his face, and a few stars twirling around his head.

Shawn van Allen

What a character player. He was the heart and soul of the Sens for many years. Played liked he was 10 feet tall. I remember he got frustrated one game with some player jabbing him in the ribs and dropped his gloves, unleashing all the pent up fury of a wolverine on the other player. I dont think he did much damage but he certainly made him backoff.

Arveddson One of the best 2 way plaers I had ever seen. Strong , fast.
Never was the same after he ran into the boards in that Philly game.....

He'd get so nervous during the third period sometimes that he'd throw up in a bucket at the bench.

Remember when he dipped his stick in the toilet to turn around his goal scoring luck and then went on a tear?

Already mentioned, but, I wanted to mention him again for the one feat that he accomplished that baffled me. For the longest time (i.e. up until a couple of years ago) he was the leading scorer from his draft year. I think he was surpassed around 2003 or so. Even with being out of the NHL for a few years now, he's still not that far behind.

Norm MacIver. Waiver draft pick-up in Year 1. Small, skilled, played his heart out -- a poor man's (a very poor man's) Nick Lidstrom.

Then again, there's always Lonnie Loach...

I didn't want to be a spelling nazi but it's coming up again and again.

Norm Maciver.

I didn't want to put up Lonnie Loach myself knowing that you were around. It's only fair.

I remember Maciver being absolutely great for us, leading the team in scoring. Then I heard that other teams were talking to the Sens about him as a deadline pick-up. They were offering a third-rounder, and were hoping that he'd be a decent bottom pairing defenceman for them, who can play on the powerplay.

I was crushed. Our superstar would have been at most a spare part on a good team.

Hey. It's not our fault if he doesn't know how to spell his own name.

He so embodied the team when he was here, that, when they created a new third jersey, I'm pretty sure the face in the new logo was modelled after him.
