It’s been a strange spring; no Sens play-off defeat to be upset about. It certainly put the post season in a different perspective than we are used to. All three of us seemed to have different reactions to watching (or not, Stooli) the other teams battle it out for the cup.
It was a great run to the cup, maybe the best in years and as feared a few season’s back, the Penguins are now top dogs and may remain there for year’s to come. Will the Sens ever be able to reach the level of play and commitment the champs showed in winning the Grail? This is a heated topic in this show.
But as you can imagine, the real heat is on Dany Heatley, who as you all know, has demanded a trade from our beloved team. It’s a very shocking and confusing issue that Dany doesn’t seem to want to shed any light on. Was it really all about his ice time and Clouston? Or maybe he’s just mad Murray didn’t throw in another “N” for his name in his last contract. Hey, that makes about as much sense as his demands do. Regardless, we pile on him like everyone else has and take a look at what this team may look like after Murray works another Jedi mind trick on some poor fool GM. Remember Meszawful and Vermette?
We shoot it about the draft, our unsigned players, ex-Sens in the News, Roy Mlakar is an ex-Sen (karma), the dismal performance of the refs in the post-season and the soap opera of the Yotes and Balsillie.
We missed all you knuckle-heads and we’re happy to be back at it, if only for now. But with the draft, the free agency season and the likely shuffling of several Sens out of town, we’re sure we’ll be back in just a few weeks with more to flap about. Hey, it’s Canada... it’s always ok to talk hockey. Now go tan your pasty white asses!
