Silver Nuggets: NHL or SEL for Zibanejad; will Yashin cash in?

Welcome to some Tuesday Nuggets. Not much of note has happened in the world of the Ottawa Senators, but that doesn't mean we haven't got a few notable stories out there. They're below.

Before that, though, a quick update about Silver Seven Hockey Night for the home-opening boo-fest against Dany Heatley and the Minnesota Wild: We're awaiting some more concrete ticket-pricing numbers since we're looking at a party of more than 50 attendees, but there's still ample room left! If you want to come, send an e-mail to AlfieGirl (e-mail address on her profile) to express interest. This should be the biggest event yet, so come on out if you can.

Now, to the links...

Senators links:

  • If Mika Zibanejad doesn't make the Ottawa Senators, reports suggest he'll return to Sweden. And I have no problem with that. (6th Sens)
  • Cam the fantasy hockey scout is projecting David Rundblad to score 35-ish points this season. He's got a poll on his site, so you can chime in--but explain your vote in the comments below, too. I think 35 sounds like a reasonable estimate. (Fantasy Hockey Scouts)
  • Is it mid-July already? Time for the annual Alexei Yashin-might-return-to-the-NHL show! (Puck Daddy)
  • Milks ponders whether Yashin is seriously considering returning, and if so, whether or not he'd be a good fit as Ottawa's second-line centre. (Black Aces)
