Here we go! We finally have more hockey to talk about. After watching a couple of open practices and participating in the open house, we are excited to see how the line up is shaping up and getting our first look at new acquisitions and some prospects up from the BSens. To help us out, we have Ben from Binghamton give us a breakdown of guys that he’s been looking at for a few years.
A couple big things in the news is who will play in goal and which D men to bring up and who would be in goal….and how local media is blowing things out of proportion.
We touch on updates on signings, big news in the buy outs of bad contracts and the surprising lack of trades.
We’re looking forward to having a great season with you guys and want the Underground to be as interactive as possible. With that, Spaceman is running a hockey pool for us. E-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org to enter and we’ll have a prize pack for the winner. More info on the rules are on the forums at www.sensunderground.com.

Are YOU Red-dy For More?
Welcome back, groundhogs! It’s been a long and hard 4 months and we’re back with a new episode to discuss the available information on the CBA “Framework”, how it will impact some teams and how well the Sens look to be set up for the new salary cap.
We discuss the look of the line up and depth charts for who fits where and who could come up to the big team from Binghamton – and yes – as always, we have a goalie controversy, but for once, it’s a good one. Cowan’s injury has drastic impact on the blue line and we look at ways to fill them.
The compliance buyouts bring an interesting twist for teams to get below the cap, but we have to wait for the summer for that. This could cause budgetary and locker room issues around the league and will be very interesting to see.
We’re looking forward to being with you this season – don’t forget to join us in the forums or E-MAIL THE SHOW!!!!
That's right folks, Gord Wilson himself kicks off our 5th episode of this season of NHL lockout. In this episode, we let you the listener in on some of our in-studio antics while we're "off-air." There's no NHL hockey being played, so we might as well have a few laughs right?
Boingy joins us for a segment and discusses life as a Sens fan in Toronto. We continue the usual lockout frustration talk, some prospect news, and even a little chat about TV shows.
Be sure to listen right to the end for a few extras and bonus tracks. If it hadn't been for Cotton Eye Joe, we'd have had this episode released a long time ago.
Welcome back! There’s still not much new in regards to the progress of CBA talks, so we do a little house cleaning and speak to a couple Call-ups! Trying to survive with the lack of NHL hockey, we look at some of the alternatives by looking at the Sens abroad as well as the B-Sens and the CHL. Our guest Dan gives us a taste of what living with a bunch of Canuckle-heads is like and a look at some of our Western based prospects.
Around the league, we look at matches that aren’t necessarily made in heaven and a little more Leaf front office debacles. The release of John Davidson from the Blues is discussed and looking at possible places where he could improve existing teams.
We speak with Gabrielle, the first SCU Contest winner for the Most Disappointing Sens Moment as she opens her prize, and reads a beauty e-mail from Homer.
