Silver Nuggets: Senators facing pressure free summer; Free agents come and go

Bonjour tout le monde, c'est vendredi! Le woo hoo! The Ottawa Senators do keep making a transaction every other day, which is greatly beneficial for me trying to find news! But still, it is getting a bit dry in Sens land and the season couldn't start fast enough for me. We are now less than 3 months away from the regular season opener in Detroit!

Here are today's links:

  • The Ottawa Senators signed forward Mark Parrish to a two-way contract. (Silver Seven Sens)
  • Wayne Scanlan notes that the Senators management have had a pressure free summer. While there have been a few grumblings about a signing here and there, generally, the fans haven't expected Bryan Murray to acquire any big free agents. He notes however, when the euphoria of the draft picks wears off, and the Senators are struggling in late December, will the fans turn on Murray? (Ottawa Citizen)
