Around The League In 30 Days: Ottawa

Almost two-thirds of the way through our 30 in 30 previews, and we’ve come to the Senators. Last year, our team split the season series, but only the Bolts actually made any impact in the playoffs. They did make it to the Finals (albeit 4 years ago) where they got smoked by the Ducks 4-1, but since then they’ve either been beaten out of the playoffs by the Pens or they haven’t qualified at all. So, what’s in store for the Sens this year? Here’s what the writers at SenShot are “dreaming” Hehehe…

“The 2010-2011 season was not kind to Ottawa. After reaching the pinnacle of the franchise four years ago in the Stanley Cup Finals, Ottawa has been on a downward slope ever since. After losing the the Final to Anaheim, the Sens have been through five coaches, have seen franchise players leave town, and are now considered a bottom feeder in the league.

Last year saw Ottawa make the decision to change the philosophy of the team and proceed with a rebuild to get the team back to contender status. Shipped out-of-town were fan favorites Mike Fisher and Chris Kelly along with four others for the return of draft picks. In total, eight players who suited up for the Sens last season are gone and replaced by prospects and free agents.”
