The Ottawa Senators and the NHL Season Preview, Part 3 of 4: Senators' Predictions


Ryan Keller Cory Clouston of the Ottawa Senators walks the bench before the start of a game against the Montreal Canadiens at Scotiabank Place on December 28, 2009 in Ottawa, Canada. The Ottawa Senators defeated the Montreal Canadiens 4-2.

Today this faithful Wednesday, we look at our predictions for the Ottawa Senators this upcoming season, whether it be scoring, points, either way something like that. It will be an interesting year, and you must remember anything can happen. Last year I predicted Ottawa would finish 8th in the East, which came true, you know the playoff part. Obviously the finished 5th.

Either way, here we go all!…
