Silver Nuggets: A challenge for Cory Clouston; Kovalev is fine

Don't worry, folks, there is another Ottawa Senators game tomorrow. It's been a long week. Until then, here are some Sens headlines:

  • Cory Clouston has a challenge in front of him: Instilling structure and discipline into a team without it. On the plus side, that's the same challenge he had two seasons ago, and he's done pretty well since then. (Citizen)
  • According to Pierre Lebrun, if the Senators make a trade, it will be for a fifth or sixth defender. Because we don't have enough of those. (ESPN)
  • Don Brennan speculates the Senators will need to go about nine games above .500 the rest of the way to make the playoffs. (Sun)
  • Apparently Alex Kovalev is fine. So much for those still-recovering-from-surgery excuses. (Citizen)
  • Ken Campbell makes a good point: For all the regret Sens fans have for letting Andy Sutton and Anton Volchenkov both walk in the off-season, the team has only scored 12 goals in six games so far. Those guys wouldn't have helped that much, at least not directly. (Metro)
  • Duff is sick of the too-many-men penalties, really hates Jiri Hudler and Peter Schaefer, really loves Daniel Alfredsson, and really doesn't buy the Brian Lee trade talk. And yes, he and Pynch are former co-worker of mine--as are the men behind SENS Town and Sens Army Blog. Kind of a small world. (Another Sens Blog)
