"When I first got (to Binghamton), there was no one there," [Tim] Murray says. "I think we had two players. That wasn’t even rebuilding. If you don’t have anything, there’s nothing to rebuild. You just have to go out and get whatever good players you can."Senators assistant GM Tim Murray, on the state of the Senators' on-the-fly organizational rebuild
Looks like the Ottawa Senators decided to bring back goaltender Mike Brodeur for another year, signing him to a one-year, two-way contract. The NHL side of the deal would pay him $600k. More on the signing later today.
The Ottawa Senators announced today that they have re-signed Ryan Keller to a one-year, two-way contract. Keller spent the majority of the past season playing in the AHL, putting up 68 points in 72 games. One has to assume that he will likely spend most of the upcoming season in Binghamton as well, unless he manages to really impress during training camp or a call up.
It took overtime against the Italian National team to do, but Team USA avoided relegation with a 3-2 win in extra time. Nick Foligno had no points in the win, but finished the tournament with three goals.
What we all thought during the season has now been proven: Mike Fisher hits the post way too often. Fisher was tied for second most posts in the NHL, and is the fifth unluckiest player in the league based on that. Ryan Shannon is the fourth-unluckiest (small sample size, though), and Chris Phillips is 13th. When all is said and done, Ottawa was probably the unluckiest team in the NHL last season, based on number of posts hit.
Peter Regin scores what might be the goal of the tournament to get the game winner in Denmark's shocking 4-1 upset over Finland.
Although we'll be talking about the 2010 World Hockey Championships here on Silver Seven, I figured I'd direct interested parties to SB Nation's new international hockey blog, Puck Worlds. Check it out through the tourney, and for other ones, too.
Amid all the discussion [of the Washington Capitals' off-season plans], one of the more popular names thrown around is Anton Volchenkov [...], the 28-year-old stay-at-home defenseman who has spent his NHL career to this point with the Ottawa Senators. But is Volchenkov the answer? Well, that depends on the question.David M. Getz of Japers' Rink, in his piece examining whether or not Ottawa Senators unrestricted free agent defenceman Anton Volchenkov is a solution for the Washington Capitals.
