Another week done, a bunch more to go until hockey returns to rescue us. The big news of the day is Scotiabank Place getting a new on-ramp! Aside from that, not much else is going on. Here are a few links to ponder.
- For those of you that have been to games at Scotiabank Place, there is nothing worse than sitting in the parking lot for a good 30-45 minutes before your bus/car can exit. For those taking public transit, the Government of Ontario is investing in an on-ramp to Highway 417 East for OC Transpo buses. I couldn't find a date of completion though but when it finishes, it should make the ride home, or in my case to the hotel, a lot more pleasant. (Ottawa Senators, Public Transit in Ottawa)
- What will the Calder Cup championship mean in the long run? Sure it does create a winning mentality, but what does that mean if the same players finish in last place in the NHL a season later? The trophy itself was in Ottawa yesterday. (Ottawa Citizen, Ottawa Sun)
- While we looked at Patrick Lalime's Ottawa career yesterday, here is a detailed look at Lalime's incredible postseason statistics. Was Lalime really that good? (The 6th Sens)
