How you like dem apples

After scoring 8 goals against Toronto and 10 goals against Buffalo in less than a week the NHL scoring race has a distinct Bytown feel to it.

Eric Staal, Carolina: 22 points
Jason Spezza, Ottawa: 22 points
Daniel Alfredsson, Ottawa: 21 points
Dany Heatly, Ottawa: 21 points

Not bad! And if things weren't good enough for the Sens fan, Bryan McCabe has dropped to 27th. Man, Mats Sundin can't get back soon enough.

  7. There are two NHLs now - the talent and the rest. This happened in part due to the expansion the league underwent. The grabby game that was dominant till this year was the only way the 'rest' - typically slow, big defenders with limited speed - could stop the talent. Their was enough of an incentive under the old system to select for those guys but that's gone now.

    Guess which NHL the Sens are in?

    As Dany Heatley said, "It's not fair".

  10. That 70's show called, they want their punchline back!


    Am I sensing a pattern here?

    -Sens have great regular season.

    -Sens fans get cocky and shoot mouths off about how their team rivals oilers team from 80's

    -Toronto sucks and won't make playoffs....

    -Toronto makes playoffs and dusts off the sens for the umteenth time!

  11. I never said the Leafs wouldnt make the playoffs - but you seem so sure - so just go ahead and say it.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Sure. Leafs will make playoffs.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Leafs will make the playoffs, Sens will make the playoffs, Sens get put out of playoffs in Second round to Carolina.

    Any takers??

    PS: I guarantee the Penguins will make the playoffs to!
