BS move to set an exampleHennessy is recalled to fill in for SpezzaBrodeur remains in OttawaB-Sens are signing ECHL guys to fill in, but there's not many guys left on 2-way deals to callup. Stay healthy Ottawa!
I think Zack Smith and Ryan Keller are the only forwards available on 2-way deals.
our conversation about the lack of depth in the system rings true this week, doesn't it?
Yes, but also realize that its much better than it was a few years ago.
Do the fans in Ottawa truly appreciate just how badly Muckler mortgaged this organization? 20% of his picks were Russians that either never came to our continent or demanded one way tickets off our continent. Ottawa got more NHL talent in the draft year before Muckler took over than in ALL his drafts combined.
i don't have a problem with the fact that muckler mortgaged the future to bring in players to try and get us over the top. we were a contender and oh so close and that's what you have to do when your close. you have to roll the dice and take your shot, my problem was that mucks always brought in the wrong type of players. everyone knew we could score but what we lacked was experienced, grizzled vets with grit. so who does he bring in? soft, offensive players. apparently mucks was the only one who didn't get it.
and we could have used a goalie too.
