    A win is a win. As ugly as the last two have been, they still got 2 points in each. But tomorrow they need to not only win, but also win in regulation. Tall order. Hopefully Boston will be pretty tired playing their third game in four nights plus the traveling.

    It's still going to be very tough. The Sens have to keep this ridiculous run alive by winning Tuesday, winning their game in hand and beating Boston in the second of two meetings and even then that would put them one point ahead after having gone close to 20 games without a regulation loss.

    I agree. Sounds like a plan, Cap.

    You can't be anything but optimistic right now. If they had to learn a lesson along the way, better that it was learned (hopefully) against the Flames instead of the Bruins. Even if you're leading 10 - 0 you keep the foot on the gas.

    Yeah, I'm not sure how anyone can call it a wrap NOW, considering the team has lost one regulation game in their last 10.

    Seriously. The fact that they've gotten themselves into this position is pretty remarkable. If Boston hits even a minor rough patch, the Sens have every chance of ousting them. It's all positive right now, unless you're on the tank bus.

    It might be destiny. We'll see...I thought they were screwed after Boston won the back to back games.

    Pretty amazing streak that hopefully carries into next season.

    Good for boychuck. Also good because oil fans were a little too cocky thinking he would just head to the hometown.

    This is also favourable when you think of trades which have a chance of not resigning with the org that trades for them. Bobby rye was the same. It's a good story.

    What's the over/under on how many years of that 7-year deal he'll actually be worth $6M. He's 32 now.

    Yeah, this might not be a good signing a few years down the road but for now it's fine...and if the cap goes up, it lessens the impact if Boychuk goes downhill.

    I like the deal for the isles it's about a need they have And are filling. Ya the last 2 years are tough but if they win a cup during that time thanks to him in part or build a much more competitive team that way all is worth it.

    Considering they are moving into a 14,000 seat arena I hope they have a nice TV deal.

    That's probably about right. The term is long though.

    Lol, Ev, you've become a weirdo lately. If it's an "awful" deal, he wouldn't have signed it. He chose a good team, for a long term. Good deal for Boychuk.

    May be he meant it was an awful deal to give for Boychuk.

    Considering Methot signed for less term and $1.1M less. I'd say that's a clear savings of $1.5M per season. Deals like that absolutely have to be taken into consideration when you complain how little the Senators are spending.

    So whatever the cap hit is next year, add $1.5M because that's how much more the Rangers/Islanders would have paid for Staal/Boychuk on a shorter deal. And then look at Karlsson's $6.5M and add another $2.5M because that's how much more the Habs spent on Subban. And so on down the roster. Hell, we are probably over the cap by quite a bit.

    Mind you, by the same token you should subtract the cap hits of Phillips and Greening (paid *not* to play) at least a portion of Michalek's.
