I really want those 3 back too. Guess the only buyout guy would've been Gonchar, ans considering that Kuba is as good as gone, I know who my whipping boy will be next year.

Don't know if OTT's Erik Karlsson will win Norris Trophy but he may have new contract in matter of days. Negotiations ongoing in Las Vegas.

Bob McKenzie ‏@TSNBobMcKenzie
Expectation for Karlsson is 5 to 7 year term with cap hit of $6M or more. Not Drew Doughty money ($7m/yr) but close. Still being worked on.

Less than an hour ago on June 19th that he tweeted these

Irony, thy name is @ian_mendes:

Good news for Sens fans: Of the 6 games vs. Toronto this year, only 2x is it the second of a back-to-back for Ottawa. Happened 6x last year.

I guess we should be thankful, but do the Screaming Pulp Sticks have any games against Ottawa or Montreal that are the 2nd of a back to back pair?

From @PSBJoyOnTheSens:

#Sens‬ qualified all pending RFAs except Schira, as expected. That includes Daugavins, Da Costa, Gryba and O'Brien. ‪#BSens

There has also been a few bits of news on Twitter that Carkner has had an offer from the Senators (can't find the tweets at the moment, but I recall they were good sources)

Heard on the radio yesterday that they were also considering qualifying Filatov to retain his NHL rights.

June 21, 2012 at 2:31 PM | Registered CommenterHomer

they are hoping that one day Washington wants Filatov since the Caps seem to love Russians

Love Shawn Simpson's take. Totally says what's on his mind but its always intelligent

DeCosta was invited to Sens camp. Decided to stay at Merrimack. Not a smart move. Better be ready for camp. Has valueShawn Simpson ‏

@SSimpsonHockey
How does Lehner drop 30 pounds in two months? I love his passion, but in some ways shows more erratic actions. Natural?

that last tweet is very inflammatory but is exactly the first thing I thought. 30 lbs in 2 months? that smells fishy.

@SensChirp He didn't have much of a year. Calle Johnasson thinks he's very soft. No interest back home? Bingo will be a test.

Yeah Shawn Simpson is awesome on TGOR, didn't know if anyone else liked him but I think he's refreshing since he doesn't let politically correct speak enter into his opinions. He actually came out and said the new GM in Montreal was in over his head especially if he didn't get good people around him who knew what they are doing.

"I'm not surprised we weren't able to do more. We could have; we had cap-space, we had the money, ownership has authorized us to spend. I just don't think it was a prudent way to spend money." Brian Burke on FAFrenzy day

Isn't it always the case that the Leafs could have did something but didn't? It's always his choice he says but I think it's no one wants to play for the stupid Leafs.

"I don’t care who you are, you have to WANT to play in Ottawa. That’s what defines us.” #Sens owner Eugene Melnyk.

“Ignore the nonsense going on around us,” Melnyk said. “I’ll take our young, hungry, awesome talent and proven hard-working veterans anytime.”


Amen.

You guys with sisters and girlfriends in Ottawa better watch out

@BizNasty2point0: Hitting up the city of Ottawa tonight. I've never partied there. Hope it's a good time.

This might happen: Gary Bettman, with a legacy of three lockouts & two canceled seasons, in the Hockey Hall Of Fame. Enjoy your day.

July 16, 2012 at 4:44 PM | Registered CommenterResigned Russell

but as every freaking apologist says about Buttman---"he works for the owners" so u can't hold any of that crap that Proteau said in that tweet against him.

Doesn't Pierre McGuire say that Bettman was one of the leading people to save Ottawa from relocating when the franchise was in trouble?

Bettman is still a tool

July 17, 2012 at 8:06 PM | Registered Commentertjlincoln

i always thought that that crap about buttman saving Ottawa was just that, crap. he didn't do anything any other commissioner wouldn't have done. if it wasn't buttman, it would have been someone else so he doesn't get any special marks for that.

@BizNasty2point0:

Owners want 25% roll back on salaries but are handing out 100 million dollar deals like it's going out of style. Figure that one out. ‪#NHL

It's cool to see the players' reaction to the announcement that Alfie will be back:

@marcmethot3

Great to see Alfie coming back next season! Safe to say it's a great day for us players here, and even better day for the fans! #warrior

@craiganderson41

I can't wait to hear the #alfie chants at #ScotiaBankPlace this season!! Great to have our captain back for another year. @SensNation @sens


@ECondra

“@CraigAnderson41: I can't wait to hear the #alfie chants at #ScotiaBankPlace this season!!" it will be rocking with #Alfie and #Andy chants

I'm just assuming now that Condra uses BBQ tools made with hockey stick shafts he'll flip a patty and miss the grill completely #CondraBBQ

... kudos to @Brochenski for that one ...

@UnfollowNHLSept15

Simply writing "thank you fans" on the ice isn't going to work this time. Spread the word! #UnfollowNHLSept15

We don't hate the NHL. We love hockey, but we're unhappy with how they're handling the CBA proceedings.

Unfollow @nhl @nhlpa, every franchise and every player! That is our plan! #UnfollowNHLSept15

This is an interesting idea: unfollow all players and team feeds if a lockout does occur. I don't think it'll achieve anything, but it's still an interesting way to make a social media statement.

F*$# isn't the only message Henrik has:

The @NHL says they won’t play past Sept 15th under current deal. Apparently they don’t like the deal they designed. #CBA #nhlpa2012 -- Henrik Lundqvist (@HLundqvist30)

August 11, 2012 at 9:15 PM | Registered Commenterbeach bunny

good for Lundqvist and even the Leafer Lupul, this is all on the owners and that toad Bettman. They did design this CBA and now they want to lockout the players?

August 12, 2012 at 2:01 AM | Registered Commentertjlincoln

They did design this CBA and now they want to lockout the players?

Yes. They designed it but never built any sort of revenue sharing between the have- and have-not teams, so now the arrangement that they built based on what they wanted doesn't work, they don't want to blame themselves, so it's time to blame the players for the contracts that the GMs signed with them.

It's all about protecting the GMs/owners from themselves -- one need only look at how many attempts have been made to get around the cap the owners demanded to see that the biggest problem is the with the people making the decision on salaries.
