Silver Nuggets: Zibanejad and other prospects get ready for camp

Although I've got no fancy hidden contests for readers today, I've got a few headlines and even an embedded video. And heck, I'll put a poll in just to see what you like about Silver Nuggets, and what you don't like as much!

Ottawa Senators headlines:

  • An essay looking at Senators fans, and wondering if we're going to give Nikita Filatov a chance, or if we'll give him just enough rope to hang himself. (Le Support Athlétique)
  • First-rounder Mika Zibanejad is spending some extra time in Ottawa, and wants to spend a bit more time here. (Ottawa Sun)
  • In a ranking of minor-league markets in the USA, Binghamton (home of the AHL Senators) was tied for 62 and Elmira (home of the ECHL Jackals) was 137 overall. You can decide if that means anything. (Sports Business Journal)
  • Nicholls talkin' 'bout Sergei Gonchar and Filip Kuba. (The 6th Sens)
  • A look at Ottawa natives Mark Borowiecki and Corey Cowick as they get set for training camp. (Ottawa Sun)
  • I'm pretty amazed by how well-spoken Zibanejad is. Check out a video after the jump. (Sens TV)

General headlines:

  • Matt Bradley was on the Team 1200 yesterday and had a few critical things to say about his former team, most notably Alexander Semin. (Litter Box Cats)
  • A really cool graphical presentation of the NHL's general manager family tree. (Copper & Blue)
  • And the same deal again, but with the head coaching family tree. (Copper & Blue)
