SENATORS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Sending the Wrong Message

Watching the Senators this weekend was like watching ‘Red Wedding’ episode from Game of Thrones. Like the Starks, the Senators were lulled into a false sense of security and fans were left to helplessly watch along as their favourite team meet an untimely end.

Mark Stone Merits Calder Consideration

Lost in this city’s focus on Senators chasing down the Boston Bruins for the Eastern Conference’s remaining wild card seed is that a Senators rookie embarking on a chase of his own.

Ottawa Senators: Embracing a New Challenge

Are injuries the best thing to happen to Ottawa this season?
