National Columnist Blasts Senators Ownership

Look at Jeffrey Simpson. He appears so friendly, composed and approachable.

Marc Methot re-signs; defensemen will come at a premium come deadline time

The NHL trade deadline is usually one of the most fun parts of the season. It’s a time for every fan to speculate what their team might do; who they might move or whether or not they’ll pick up a piece to make a run for Lord Stanley’s Cup. As is the case every season, defensemen are highly sought after. A team can never be “too deep” on defense, needing every able blueliner...

However, despite the record there has been a buzz surrounding this Senators team. That buzz is courtesy of the 25 year old rookie, Mike Hoffman. Mike Hoffman was a 5th round draft...

Ottawa Senators Fire Head Coach Paul MacLean After Three-Plus Seasons

The Ottawa Senators made a surprising move Monday when they fired head coach Paul MacLean. MacLean was in the middle of his fourth season with the Sens, and it’s been a rocky start to the season. Ottawa is just 11-11-5 through 27 games and is just 3-6-1 in its last 10 games. Coincidentally, the Senators won Sunday night, coming from behind to erase a three-goal deficit against...
