Bonjour tout le monde, c'est vendredi! Le woo hoo! The Ottawa Senators do keep making a transaction every other day, which is greatly beneficial for me trying to find news! But still, it is getting a bit dry in Sens land and the season couldn't start fast enough for me. We are now less than 3 months away from the regular season opener in Detroit!

Here are today's links:

General Sens News

  • The Ottawa Senators signed forward Mark Parrish to a two-way contract. (Silver Seven Sens)
  • Wayne Scanlan notes that the Senators management have had a pressure free summer. While there have been a few grumblings about a signing here and there, generally, the fans haven't expected Bryan Murray to acquire any big free agents. He notes however, when the euphoria of the draft picks wears off, and the Senators are struggling in late December, will the fans turn on Murray? (Ottawa Citizen)
  • The Senators also signed goaltender Mike McKenna to be King Robin's backup in Binghamton. (Ottawa Senators)
  • You can also follow McKenna on twitter if you wish, joining Mika Zibanejad as the only Senators on twitter. (Mike McKennaMika Zibanejad)
  • Ryan Shannon is leaving the Senators to join the Tampa Bay Lightning, having signed a one-year contract. (Globe and Mail)
  • Roman Wick is also leaving the organisation, as he is returning to his native Switzerland. (Joy Lindsay)
  • Once again, if you want to go to the Senators home opener against Dany Heatley and the Minnesota Wild, contact the email on AlfieGirl's profile or click here for the details. (Silver Seven Sens)
