This is the question that's being asked more and more around Sensland lately: is it time?
Time for what? Change? Certainly, as it seems that 28 games is enough to convince us that what you see is what you get and it's not going to get any better the way it is. But what do you change when so much is wrong and your options are so limited? Players? The coach? The GM? Everything?!?!
This was a brutal week for the Sens:
Florida 4 - Ottawa 3 OT
Ottawa 0 - Chicago 2
Ottawa 1 - Washington 5
Tampa 0 - Ottawa 2
Those three losses were not easy to watch but neither was their lone win. Sure, two points is two points but they barely beat Tampa and they did not look good doing it. Surely Melnyk can't like what he's seeing and he must be getting a little antsy writing those huge pay cheques every week and not seeing any consistent improvement.
Why these players are unable to perform to their abilities is always a question to ponder on the show and this week is no different. We put Hartsburg, rightly or not, under the microscope and right beside him you will find Murray. We want some accountability (there's that word again) and considering they were the ones throwing it around so much, it might be nice if they'd live up to their end of the bargain because we don't see any. Brendan Bell excluded.
A ton of e-mails, News and the different stages of mourning our Sens. It's all you can ask for, other than our old team back. Oh, and Kelly scored. OH MY GOD! KELLY!!! OH MY GOD!
Leafs suck...but so do we.
