S2 E1: A NEW SEASON IS HERE!! The Roster is All Set; What's up with Colin White? Will Logan Brown Now be Traded?

After 10 months, the Sens are finally back in action, with two games against the Leafs and three against the Jets. Why has Colin White's stock fallen? Or has it fallen at all? Maybe just sending a message? White doesn't seem fazed and talks about the kind of training camp he had. After failing to make the team, Gregg thinks Logan Brown will now be traded. We look at the opening weekend roster and line matchups. Bidding farewell to Balcers and Lajoie. What's the startegy with the taxi squad choices? 2 prospects who really left an impression on Pierre Dorion. Steve is disappointed the NHL will go back to their old divisional set up after this year. It's not about being all-Canadian. The all-divisional play is the key to more consistent entertainment for fans. COMING UP TODAY THE FINAL ROSTER IS SET AND THERE ARE SURPRISES. PLAYERS ON TAXI SQUAD RIGHT NOW WERE THE PLAYERS THAT WERE REALLY CLOSE TO MAKING OUR TEAM.

038: NHL Season Begins to Take Shape, But Will COVID Allow It? Top 5 Sens Prospects; The Rift with Alfie

NHL reportedly going with 56 games. Two sides remain focused on Dec 31 camp start for non-playoff teams. Jan 3rd camp start for the rest of the league. Jan 13th start to 2020-2021 regular season. Owners tried to circle back on the deal, asking the players to defer a bigger chunk of their salaries and then also dump more money into an escrow account. Realignment will feature an all Canadian division Now that the league’s financial differences have been squared away, the fate of the new season probably rests mostly with public health officials. The big challenge for Ottawa will be getting everyone on the same page. Returning players will need a refresher course and there could be as many as 13 players who weren’t full-time members of the club last season. Two-thirds of the league’s owners must approve it and that’s the one possible internal roadblock: owners with cash flow troubles, who aren’t willing to weather this storm. Their arenas will be empty (or mostly empty) for every home game and now there’s no financial help coming from the players’ side. Sure, the NHL has an excellent TV deal, at least by its standards. But it’s not the NFL, which has TV money to burn and doesn’t need to actually sell tickets to turn a profit. On its own, the NHL’s TV arrangement simply doesn’t inject enough revenue for every owner to pay all their bills. So, there will absolutely be some teams who vote not to play this season at all. Are there more than ten teams like that? We’ll find out soon enough. NHL realignment “Thomas Chabot and Brady Tkachuk both asked if they could be part of the Belleville, which no one knows about, and that just shows how much they’re invested in the organization,” said Dorion in an interview with the Ottawa Sun Thursday. “We didn’t think we should just parachute people in, either. Both guys wanted to play for Belleville at the end of the year. “It just tells what kind of younger, character people we have up here and what could have been with Belleville.” NHL.com's Top 5 Sens prospects. Top 5 prospects. 1. Stuetzle 2. Brannstrom 3. Norris 4. Formenton 5. Sanderson Right order? Anyone missing…Logan Brown, Igor Sokolov, Shane Pinto, Lassi Thomson, Jacob Bernard-Docker, Joey Daccord, Filip Gustavsson, Vitaly Abramov, Rudolfs Balcers? The NHL is investigating selling ads on players' helmets. Daniel Alfredsson wanted to coach Team Sweden? He obviously wants to stay involved in hockey. So where are the Senators? Why won't they repair this relationship? City of Belleville extends free rent period to end of 2021 and extends deal until 2027 Sens alumni Birthdays

Is Erik Gudbranson a one year fill-in, or could he be Marc Methot 2.0? NHL.com projects Brady Tkachuk to be the league's top breakout player for the 2021 season. Are NHL pests really on the way out? Spoiler: Not a chance. There appears to be nothing not to like about Tim Stützle. Is Erik Karlsson already hall of fame worthy or is there more to be done? Sens alumni birthdays. And Gregg updates us on his team - the mighty Slave Lake Ice Dogs.

035: Eugene Melnyk: "Nobody Has Ever Trashed a Team Like We Have;" Anders Nilsson's Concussion Still a Big Issue; Sokolov is First 2020 Pick to Sign

This week we discuss Eugene Melnyk's rebuild comments on a Toronto-based podcast. We have a look at the goalie depth chart, based on goalie coach Pierre Groulx's comments in the Ottawa Sun this week. The news on Anders Nilsson is not good. We review Wayne Scanlan's Sportsnet article on six Sens prospects who are off to great starts. Egor Sokolov becomes the first Sens 2020 draft pick to sign his entry level deal. Kinda weird, considering he was the 5th guy selected by Ottawa this year. And we have Sens alumni birthdays and a little trivia.

Sens Sign Alex Galcheynuk: Good Decision or Not? Gregg doesn't like it. Steve thinks differently. Will this be Logan Brown's Final Chance to Shine? After acquiring Galceynuk and re-signing Christ Tierney, how Many NHL openings do the Sens Actually Have? The Sens have lots of prospects at centre ice, but not a lot of proven NHL-level talent...yet. Is Tim Stuetzle going to stay at home in Germany for another season? At what age do you start worrying that a player may never develop into what you thought he would? We touch on the Corey Perry talk. But not for very long. Harsh justice for an NHL draft pick for something he did at age 14.
