    GAME DAY #70: Leafs @ Senators - 7:00 pm - Saturday, March 12 2016




    Last time the Sens played this team was in the Rookie Tournament. They won in OT.

    Paul in for Puempel.
    Wideman in for Wiercioch.
    Anderson with his 54th start.

    Why isn't Paul in for Gomez so we can take a look at what Puempel can do when given a bunch of games in a row? He was called up 7 games ago and has been a scratch 5 times. What purpose does Gomez serve on this team?

    Gomez has been one of their best players especially possession wise.

    Puempel, was a fan before but he's pretty average at best

    Steven Page (Barenaked Ladies) will sing O Canada. He's the one in the Sens jersey:

    Not surprising and I don't even look at "possession." Gomez has been solid. I don't see how everyone forgot how Puempel played a decent # of games in top 6 already and was quite underwhelming.

    Anyhow the mission tonight is to finish the Leaves. Permanently.

    Point is, Gomez is not part of the future for the Sens while Puempel is a 1st round pick that they've invested in over the last few years, and they are paying him a heck of a lot more to sit in the press box then they would have if he was still in Bingo. If they don't think he's part of the future then keep him in the AHL and save the cash. It's not like Gomez is the difference between making the playoffs and missing.

    Bottom line, Gomez makes no sense in light of the fact that Puempel was brought up to Ottawa.

    I've been way more impressed with Gomez than I thought I would be.

    I think management has finally realized that leaning on the kids is not a formula for success. The mix has to be weighted in favour of more vets in the NHL while they reset the farm by actually leaving the kids down there longer than needed...

    I would have no issue with ScoGo centering line 4 and playing the PP next season.

    Me too. He's a good playmaker and always seems to find space.

    I think added veteran presence would lead to fewer peaks and valleys throughout the season. I think the biggest problem with a kid-focused team makeup is the lack of consistency.

    Are you guys seriously saying that you wouldn't mind seeing Scott Gomez in the Sens lineup next season? Seriously? I'd much rather give the 4th line center spot to Paul or White. 5 games, one assist, one hit and 44% on face offs. What is he teaching the kids? That mediocrity can still get you reps in this league?

    Agreed with both above posts. That said there might be better options than Gomez in the off season, but I like him.

    I don't really care who they get, as long as he's cheap! The important thing is to get Bingo sorted out in a hurry. They got overzealous and overconfident with our prospects and we may have been set back 2 or 3 years in that area because of it.

    Red Wings win in OT. Sens 8 back of the Penguins who have 2 in hand -- "mathematically eliminated" isn't too far off. Malkin is out 6-8 weeks. Flyers just 3 back with a game in hand.
