Holy Crap! What a week it was for the Sens and what a show this is for you!
We don't know how many times we've said it on this show over the years but hockey can be a very strange game.
With all the odds stacked against them, half the team made of Bingo call-ups and the other half, mostly the vets, in the hospital, the Sens are now showing more life than they have all year long! Suddenly, when we find the team laying in a steaming heap at the bottom of a pit, they are pulling themselves up by their jockstraps, dusting themselves off and PLAYING HOCKEY...WELL!!!
But it really is no co-incidence that a group of young, hungry, enthusiastic players can bring a better effort than a group of jaded, beaten down vets. They don't know any better! So many changes gives us so much to talk about this week and finally, some of it is good. We actually have some wins to talk about and even the losses were great efforts. The Flyers!!?? Really?!
In the last of the trade deadline deals, we saw the Sens boot Campoli to the Hawks and Murray pick up two players off waivers in Svatos and Mc....Mcel...McElennenhilleni.....that goalie guy.
But most importantly... HE'S GONE!!!! THE ONE THAT FLOATS IS NO MORE!!! Von Krapatard has played his last game as a Sen, his stupid, smug face is no longer hanging above the doors at SBP and the world just smells... cleaner. We beat all these topics about Studio 11 tonight. However, no one topic dominated the show like the Philips signing did. To say that we are concerned would be like saying LeClaire has an ouchie.
We also cover a million other topics this week, including what to do and when to do it with Anderson, many bits of news about the Golden Gawd, (cheese alert) from his back to the future, an attitude adjustment for Lehner, various bits of News coming from the brain trust of the team about sweaters, ticket prices, clocks, UFAs......*GASP* and even more stuff! Emails and voice mails too! It's all hands on deck this week.
Damn, there's a lot to digest in this show so set aside some time, climb aboard the tank and come for the ride! FORWAAAAAARRRRDDD!
