Silver Nuggets: Disappointing Players, Sens Report Card, & Bryan Berard

The Hockey Writers offer a look at the twenty most disappointing performances of the 2008/09 regular season, including our two Mikes, Fisher and  Comrie. One has to wonder if the off-ice distractions have been a factor (kind of a hockey version of the Jessica Simpson curse, I guess).


The Ottawa Citizen offers a Sens-focused free agent shopping guide. The names mentioned are the ones you'd expect, particularly one that rhymes with Ray Dowmeester.


The Ottawa Sun, on the other hand, takes a look at the players Ottawa already has with a 08/09 report card. It also makes a very surface-level cost-benefit analysis of having a stadium like Scotiabank Place in town. An impressive figure: the stadium has apparently received $37 million in tax relief in the last eight years.


An interesting look at the Senator that wasn't: Bryan Berard.


Antoine Vermette fans may have another reason to watch tomorrow's battle between the Blue Jackets and Red Wings: it looks like Vermy will be on the Jackets' top line between Rick Nash and Kristian Huselius


Finally, a number of sites have taken to giving Draft predictions at this early stage, including Bleacher Report and Dobber Hockey.
