Silver Nuggets: How are the Senators doing?

NHL: Carolina Hurricanes at Ottawa Senators Marc DesRosiers-USA TODAY Sports

Instead of a thought or some other opinion piece, I want today’s Nuggets to just have two simple questions:

First, where do you think the Sens will finish the season?

And second, is that better or worse than what you thought at the start of the season?

NKB asks this question a bunch on Twitter, and I hoped we could have a little chat about it in the comments. My answer is that I expect the Sens will finish in a wild card position. I expected them to miss the playoffs, so this is improvement. Overall, this team looks a lot better than I expected, 20 games in. Their ability to limit high-danger chances in particular is impressive.
