Let’s get this out of the way first. Happy New Year!
We here at the Underground hope 2009 will be a great year for all of you and your families and we certainly hope it’s started off better for you than it did for the Sens.
The road trip from hell is all but over and, as expected, the little team that couldn’t has very little to show for it. All our fears have come true as we have seen the Sens cement themselves further and further into the basement floor. Last place isn’t far now but that Tavares kid sure does look good!
Because of our extended time off, we have 7 games to cover this week:
Ottawa 4 – Philly 6
Ottawa 3 – Calgary 6
Ottawa 0 – Vancouver 3
Ottawa 3 – Edmonton 2
Ottawa 2 – Toronto 4
Ottawa 3 – Jersey 4
Ottawa 2 – Buffalo 4
Ahhh, the Buffalo game. Now there was a game you can sink your teeth into! Or at least Ruutooth thought so. That’s what it’s come to. The most entertainment we get now is when one of our players goes Tyson.
Apart from the regular e-mails, News and bitching, we take a look at the culture of the Ottawa Senators. What do we lack that some of the legendary teams have? Changes seem to be in the wind but what can Murray realistically do? Should he do anything? Should he be one of the changes? Can a dedicated Sens fan want their team to finish last and get that #1 pick? All these questions give us headaches this week. We also award the prize for the latest contest, “give the Sens a new logo”. Lots of great entries on this one. We so proud of you all!
And speaking of proud, congrats to the Canadian Juniors, 5 time champions! You guys rock our world! Gold, Jerry, GOLD!
