Ottawa Senators Round Table: Keys To Success In 2015-2016

6 of 6

The Ottawa Senators seemed content that the team they have built are good enough to be competitive this season.  Are they going to have enough to be in contention at the trade deadline and add a piece or pieces that will help get them over the edge?

Making the playoffs is great for a team and a fanbase. The Senators have failed to get out of the first round of the playoffs every year except one since making it to the Stanley Cup Finals in 2007 when they lost to the Anaheim Ducks.  Are we going to see the same Senators this year, merely doing enough to get in, or will they find a way to be more successful in the post-season?

A lot of this conversation hinges on the fact that they are going to be relying on sophomore goaltender Andrew Hammond.  An impressive rookie campaign saw him pick up 20 wins in 24 starts.  Will Hammond’s stock rise in his second stint on the bench, or will he taper off and be truer to form?

Only time will tell, and with training camp right around the corner, the buzz in Ottawa is in like any other market at this point, the goal is to win the Stanley Cup.
