Hoffman sent back to Bingo, JGP is recalled. Cowen is suspended, so Gryba should be in. Anderson? Lehner? Another 10 round shootout with shooters who can't even keep the puck on their stick?

As St00li would say.........WHO KNOWS!

since I can't watch these games because of work, did they even give Hoffman a fair chance? If not what good does it do to bring back JGP if he's only going to get a few shifts?

I don't think they gave Hoffman a fair shake, but that's just me. I think the difference is that JGP is a centre and the Paularus is on record that he likes Zbad as a winger more than a centre (he's been struggling with faceoffs). This move puts Zbad on the wing of one of the top two lines and has another centre to take faceoffs on the 4th line.

I'm not convinced on it, as JGP was ~30% in faceoffs when he was sent down. Grant was 52.7%. As a comparison, Turris is 51.6%.

In other news.....

Methot is out with the flu and Cody Ceci, 1st round pick / former Ottawa 67 / hometown lad, is an emergency callup will make his NHL debut tonight wearing #5. There has been a lot of guessing going on about what the pairings are going to be as Ceci will be the 4th right-shooting blueliner, and the current guesstimates are Weircioch-Karlsson, Corvo-Gryba and Phillips-Ceci.

Where has Chuckie been lately?

December 12, 2013 at 7:15 PM | Registered CommenterHomer

I think he was on here about once last year. To bad. It was fun having him on here bugging Russell.

BFR !!!

some of the nicer passing we've seen from Sens this year, on that goal.

December 12, 2013 at 7:57 PM | Registered CommenterResigned Russell

Oh sh*t!! U mean they actually scored?

December 12, 2013 at 8:09 PM | Registered Commentertjlincoln

LOL as soon as I look at the box score the other team scores--boy do I hate that Homer.

December 12, 2013 at 8:11 PM | Registered Commentertjlincoln

Is anyone else watching on the Sens channel? Is your sound screwed up?

December 12, 2013 at 8:16 PM | Registered CommenterSunburned Senior

It was. This is what happens when you man the production truck for a Sens game with leaf fans.

December 12, 2013 at 8:21 PM | Registered CommenterResigned Russell

Thankfully, they got it cleared up so we could listen to the intermission clowns.

December 12, 2013 at 8:28 PM | Registered CommenterResigned Russell

Is that Bob Mackenzie's son?

December 12, 2013 at 8:31 PM | Registered CommenterSunburned Senior

Yep

December 12, 2013 at 8:34 PM | Registered CommenterResigned Russell

Good thing Andy stopped that. He gave it to the guy on a tee.

December 12, 2013 at 8:35 PM | Registered CommenterResigned Russell

Ceci is making mom proud with his play so far

December 12, 2013 at 8:43 PM | Registered CommenterHomer

Apparently, Ceci shops at the same Huge Balls store that EK65 does. Wow! This kid rocks!

December 12, 2013 at 8:44 PM | Registered CommenterResigned Russell

So Ceci is only here on an emergency call-up because Methot has a bad flu.

Meth needs to go to Corvo's house, lick all the spoons and touch everything in the house

December 12, 2013 at 8:49 PM | Registered CommenterHomer

Corvo? I thought he was playing decent lately.

December 12, 2013 at 8:52 PM | Registered CommenterSunburned Senior

Wow, good on gryba to bounce back up there. He took a hell of a shot.

December 12, 2013 at 8:54 PM | Registered CommenterResigned Russell

Convo has been good of late. Not sure how but he has.

December 12, 2013 at 8:55 PM | Registered CommenterResigned Russell

When a player goes out on the ice and asks the other guy if he wants to go, the ref should step in and toss him in the box. I hate these staged fights. And I'm not sure how good a fighter Gryba is. Seems he got clobbered a couple of times last season.

December 12, 2013 at 8:57 PM | Registered CommenterSunburned Senior

"When a player goes out on the ice and asks the other guy if he wants to go"

couldn't that be interpreted as instigating?
