Anyone know a good retirement home?
Yes, the time has come. After 6 seasons and a bit, we at the Underground have made a very difficult decision; season 7 will be our final season doing our podcast. Why? 7 just seems like a nice number? We want to catch up on our reading? We want to spend more time metal detecting on the beaches of Florida? While all these things are true, we did think long and hard about this and it makes sense to us for a lot of reasons. We'll lay these out for you in this episode and we're sure you'll hear lots more about it as the season moves along.
But there's a ton of Sens talk to be talked before we ride off into the virtual sunset. Now that Russell is back from his tropical slacking, the show returns with two weeks worth of games:
Sens 3 - Pens 6
Canes 3 - Sens 4
Sens 6 - Jets 4
Sens 2 - Dallas 3
Sens 2 - Washington 3 OT
Tampa 2 - Sens 4
So the Sens are now back home for the majority of the month after a successful road trip that saw them finish above .500%, a fine accomplishment for a supposedly "last place team". They are still sitting in a play-off position with a great chance to move up during this home stand. If that doesn't put a smile on a Sens fan's face, you're actually a Leaf fan.
Other than that, we discuss a truck-load of stuff this week, including the futures of Butler and Filitov and who's more deserving of a roster spot. Also on the table, Kenopka's role on the team, Spezza 1.5, re-alignment, the schedule for next season, the 20th aniversary of the awarding of the Ottawa franchise....it just goes on and on!
We round it all out with a few e-mails, some stories of Russell's problems with personal space, a new poll question and even a grudging nod from Stooli to Philips. The end must be near!
Please enjoy the show; it's all inclusive.
