  1. NHL 2017-18

    The Sens finally took the centurion off of the Stanley Cup banners And a better look at centre ice
  2. NHL 2017-18

    I doubt it. Any logo changes the team has been talking about likely wont happen for at least another season or two at least, and I doubt they walk away from the heritage brand next season.

    My guess is that it will be that striping pattern moved down to the cuffs like a straight line version of their pre-edge red sweaters (without the swoosh obviously). Their current sweaters are basically an adaptation of that forced onto a reebok template so it seems minor enough of a change.

    I believe Oshie's a UFA. Vegas has a window to negotiate and sign UFA's but if they dont they have to draft a contracted player, so they cant directly draft a UFA from what I understand. Meaning Oshie wont go to Vegas unless he wants to go to Vegas.

    I'm Interested to see what Vegas does with the goaltender situation. Fleury, Raanta, Grubauer, Mrazek, Miller, Elliott even Halak, Luongo and Pickard all for the picking. From my understanding they can pick more than three and if they take more than two NHL goalies there's likely going to be another trade in the works.

    Somewhat mildly interesting that the Sens' French teaser is a different wording and uses the NHL logo not the LNH, especially since the branding for English is identical across all teams

    The Sens sent these out last week. Seems possible that the white heritage will come back for at least one game next year.
  8. For so long the Sens Achilles heel has been their defense. It's improved so much this year and together with Anderson/Condon is the reason they got this far, but it could be so much better than it still is (looking at the Ceci-Phaneuf pairing). If Chabot steps up as a rookie and say Ceci's gone at the draft the sens could ice three fully competent and capable defensive lines with Karlsson as the cherry on top. Many things still need to go right though for the Sens to be looking at another semifinals next year; mainly preventing losing Methot at the draft, not letting the depth walk and re-signing Chris Neil, and a bunch more luck.

    I haven't heard the news about the Preds redesigning their sweaters, so hopefully this means some teams will announce new looks in the next few weeks so we won't have new sweaters just for Vegas/Minnesota/New Jersey. Not that every team should though, I'm with M4One on this one.
  10. If there's one thing I can keep confidence in is that I've seen the Sens bounce back from absolute dog performances over the past years, and there have been many. Winning game 6 at home is doable, but yeesh...
  11. I happened to miss most of the last two games thanks to school happening at night, but at least I caught the first period last night. I hope Ottawa comes out the same way next game, they need to to leave Ottawa with the lead. Only allowing 3 goals in 3 games to the defending champs is a huge accomplishment so far. On a completely unrelated note, I've started watching the games on NBC, I came for superstition when both goals in game 1 happened after I flipped my stream over. I stayed because sportsnet continues to make reports such as this: (Attendance was 100.6% capacity )
  12. Lol. The press and players couldn't stop talking this season about buying into Boucher's system. So it sounds like he either liked what he had back then and is trying to mould Ottawa into the Tampa model, or he got the Bolts players to buy in too and he's just a very consistent coach. Edit: I'm not versed in his tactics beore joining the Bolts, but I have a feeling he would have molded Tampa into his model as well. So it's likelier the latter
  13. The thing with Ottawa is that under Boucher's defensive system they play to hold on and win one goal games (see: the trap) and are doing it well to be fair (7-2 in 1 goal games this playoffs and that 8th win included an empty netter), the other side is that they lose a lot more 3+ goal games than they win. Craig Anderson has been great in a few games these playoffs but has also looked shaky in a few more so I don't know what we're gonna see against the Pens. The team bailed him out a couple times vs NY but how he performs will probably be even more important than Karlsson's from here on out. He's performed a lot better down the stretch in the regular season and in past playoffs. The defense is also a bit of a wildcard, Karlsson's playing his best hockey right now and the 3rd pairing of Claesson-Harpur/Wideman has been more than serviceable. Ceci - Phaneuf, however, has been less than impressive. They've each had good games but quite a few stinkers on top of that. At Even Strength Karlsson has a 54.8 CF% since the start of the post-season and Ceci has a 45.6 CF%, while the rest of the defense has a 51.2 CF%. That's not the guy you want on your second pairing playing key minutes and logging heavy PK time but here he is. If the Senators play organized and stick to their game plan I see a good series coming out of this. If they play like they did at MSG this could be over pretty quickly. FWIW the Senators won/tied* the season series 2-1 (*one of the wins coming in a shootout) with the home team winning every game. Senators in 6 Predators in 7
  14. Old Uniforms That Are Better Than Their Current Uniforms

    The quality of the Senators' sweaters has been on a half life since their inception, the one saving grace being the 2011 heritage (which is de facto retired unless they bring it back for 2018-19)
  15. 2nd career in the playoffs too. His last was almost 4 years ago to the day.
