Silver Nuggets: Shannon to be a Scratch Thursday?

Here's a collection of Ottawa Senators-related headlines:

  • Before Cory Clouston came in, Mike Fisher says "We were brutal." I'd agree. (Metro)
  • Ryan Shannon seems like the prime candidate to be a healthy scratch for tomorrow's game against the Predators. It's either him or Shean Donovan. (Citizen)
  • Jason Spezza left practice early today to rest some bumps and bruises. Clouston said that Spezz has had some nagging injuries throughout the start of this season. Spezza should still lace up for tomorrow's game. (TSN)
  • Wayne Scanlan believes that this Ottawa Senators team is a playoff team, thanks to a combination of hard work, Cory Clouston, and an easy conference. (National Post)
  • Among a list of court briefs, a 22-year-old from Kingston is convicted of stealing a $1.99 Ottawa Senators armband from a department store. Armband? Really? (Whig)
  • Another feel-good piece on Matt Carkner's contract extension (Citizen)
  • Update: And a less feel-good piece about Carkner's extension, to which Peter has a response: This isn't based on two weeks of service, because Clouston coached this guy for a full two seasons, too. Oh yeah, and about the crowded d-corps? Carkner plays the wing, too. Is signing him to a one-way contract a risk? Yes, but it's not an unreasonable one. (Another Sens Blog)
  • Update: Clouston talks about Filip Kuba's injury: "It's basically his hips, groins and pelvis area and we don't know what's causing what. We've just got to get everything strengthened and kind of settled down before we can say a whole lot more." Doesn't sound like he'll be back Thursday after all. (Sun)
  • Update: A nice feature on Chris Phillips can be found at the Sens' official page. (Senators)
