Silver Nuggets: Relive the B-Sens Calder Cup run

It's Monday, folks... what else is there to say? Let's head right to the Ottawa Senators and NHL links for today's Silver Nuggets:

  • Just in case you missed it this morning, check out JoNana's look into the nature of Daniel Alfredsson's most recent injury problems, and the procedure he's undergoing to solve them. (Silver Seven)
  • If you forgot just how impressive the B-Sens' run to the Calder Cup was, check out this game-by-game breakdown of their 23-game journey. (Press & Sun Bulletin)
  • Also by Joy Lindsay: The B-Sens are a special group. (Press & Sun Bulletin)
  • Big Daddy Crozier (not his real nickname) takes a look at some potential free agent acquisitions for the Sens this off-season. (SenShot)
  • Robin Lehner didn't have much success with the Soo Greyhounds last year, but he's one of seven OHL grads on the B-Sens Calder Cup-winning squad. (Soo Today)

And some news from around the league:

  • Rachel McAdams is a good dancer. (Puck Daddy)
  • These restricted free agents are examined from an Anaheim Ducks point of view, but many would also look good in a Senators jersey. Especially Wayne Simmonds or Andrew Ladd. (Anaheim Calling)
  • It seems likely that Zach Parise and the New Jersey Devils are headed to arbitration. Which means two things: a) Parise will be rewarded with a lot of money, and b) Parise will not be tendered any RFA offer sheets. (In Lou We Trust)
  • Mika Zibanejad is a guy who's been talked about as a potential pick at sixth overall. Here's a look at some of the scouting reports on him. (Blueshirt Banter)
  • Bwahahaha... apparently a lot of people are interested in seeing what a buyout of Dany Heatley would cost the San Jose Sharks. (Fear the Fin)
  • A look at whether the Blue Jackets should try to re-sign Scottie Upshall. If not, he might be a fit on the Senators roster. (The Cannon)
  • I'm not sure how much attention you pay to the Fan Confidence Meter (sic) at the left-hand side of the main page, but if you look around, the Calgary Flames have the most unstable fan base around. (Matchsticks and Gasoline)
  • I'm not sure how likely it is prospect Rocco Grimaldi will fall all the way to the Sens' second first-round pick (21 overall), but here's a solid preview--it'd be pretty great to get him. (Western College Hockey Blog)
  • A really cool rundown of the North American hockey system, including pro, semi-pro, and developmental leagues. (Puck Worlds)
  • Since the "Senators" selected Jonathan Huberdeau at sixth overall, the 2011 SBN Mock Draft has seen: Winnipeg select Nathan Beaulieu, Columbus select Sven Bartschi, and Boston select Ryan Murphy.
