Sunday Morning Coffee



For those lazy Sunday’s where you want to just surf the interweb and get caught up on all the things you missed during your busy everyday life, SenShot brings to you Sunday Morning Coffee for your one stop round up of all the happenings during the week.

With the Chara/Pacioretty incident still dominating the headlines, Jared takes a look at the situation from two angles: first he looks at the hit itself and the lack of suspension; and then he takes a look at the fallout from the hit off the ice.

Ottawa continued their rebuild with the signing of a few prospects this week. Your newest Senators are defenceman Mark Borowiecki and forwards Derek Grant and Wacey Hamilton.

Jared got a chance to see how a few ex-Sens are doing with their new teams after being traded. A heads up for all you Brian Elliott fans, the news is not so good for him.

  • SensTV got a chance to speak to defensive prospect Eric Gryba about his year so far in Binghamton and about the transition from the college game to the pro game.
  • Jared got a chance to see potential top 5 draft pick Gabriel Landeskog play live and has a full review of the potential future Senator.

    A few Senators have been shutdown for the season due to injuries. Spared the misery of playing out the rest of the season are Milan Michalek, Peter Regin and Matt Carkner. Daniel Alfredsson and Pascal Leclaire have also been ruled out as coming back this season.

    James Gordon got a chance to speak with Binghamton Senators head coach Kurt Klienendorst about a few prospects that have been playing in Ottawa as of late.  

    If you’re in the market for some new blades, Silversevensens did a review of the MLX hockey skates.

    For all you season ‘seat’ holders, SensTown did a review of the ‘Season Ticket Renewal Brochure’ that the Ottawa Senators sent out this past week. The review goes through each page of the brochure and describes what each page truly means.

    Don Brennan from the Ottawa Sun takes a look at the top 5 draft prospects in this year’s upcoming draft and thinks the Sens could use a player like Gabriel Landeskog.

    It has just been discovered that NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman had signed a new 5 year extension to stay on in his current position. The real news is that he is making a whopping $7.2 million dollars a year.

    NFL fans are now going to know how NHL fans felt a few years back as the NFL has locked out its players after failing to reach an agreement with the player’s union. How long will the lockout last is hard to tell. But when you have to split up $9 billion dollars, you have to make sure everybody gets a fair deal.

    Apparently our foes from Toronto are looking for new owners as the Ontario Teachers Pension Plan wants to sell their 66% share in MLSE. Maybe Jim Balsillie can buy the team and move them to Hamilton.

    That’s your news for the week. Check back here at SenShot everyday Sunday for a recap of the week’s happenings.
