Senators’ Run Nearly Over, Edmonton Needs A Goalie: Robin Lehner A Fit?



Silver Seven “Potential List Of Black Aces Available For Ottawa Senators” – Jeff Ulmer

Submission: Zachary Prenner

Bingo’s season has just ended, and there could be some interesting players available, should the Sens choose to use them.
Our pal Jeff takes a look at some of the more likely callups. Personally I thought Prince was given too short an audition, and I’d rather give him a shot than re-inserting Chris Neil.

"The Take: Binghamton had an atrocious season. It could have been seen coming as Ottawa has used their feeder team to draw players like Mike Hoffman, Mark Stone, Mark Borowiecki and Jean-Gabriel Pageau, all AHL stars in the last year. Binghamton may find themselves with a few new players next season, but it is safe to say you can all but scrap this year."

6th Sens looks at how Cameron is turning to veterans after going down 2-0 in the series to Montreal. There are cases to be made both for and against these moves. If the Sens win, Cameron will look like a genius for a couple of days at least. If they don’t, going down 3-0 will be near impossible to overcome.

"The Take: Alex Chiasson has been absolutely horrible this season. One has to think the Senators look to deal him or find a better fit in Ottawa’s system. He’s out of place on the 2nd line, and has shown he can play a 4th line role, but without anything special being added there. Further, the Senators’ moniker over the past few seasons has been the idea of the “pesky sens” strong play by kids is something they’ve relied on, perhaps best displayed by Andrew Hammond. So, while the changes may make sense, consider the identity of Ottawa before evaluating these moves."

6th Sens “Edmonton Wins The Draft Lottery, Now What?” – Nichols

Submission: Trevor Shackles

Nichols at 6th Sens wrote about the Oilers situation and how it connects to Ottawa, similar to the post from myself last night. It’s an interesting case, because the Oilers need a goalie, and perhaps they will be desperate.

"The Take: The Oilers need a goalie? The Senators have an extra goalie. Which one interests them? Could Robin Lehner be a fit and could the Senators maximize his value now? If you’re talking to me, Edmonton is a perfect trading partner. Just don’t expect to get an Eberle or Hall out of Lehner."

Sportsnet “Senators May Finally Have Run Out Of Magic” – Chris Johnston

Submission: Eldrinson Vado

Chris Johnston and his thoughts on the Sens vs Habs series; Three one-goal losses. The narrow margin between success and failure in the playoffs.

"The Take: The series has been close, but Ottawa finds themselves down 3-0 to the Canadiens and facing a 4-game sweep on home ice. That would be the end of a rivalry for Senators fans, as their team may be going down in the worst way possible. Regardless of how this one ends up, we can nearly say that round 2 of the Sens/Habs playoff matchup goes to Montreal."
