    I've also liked Zib lately too.  

    Ceci is not very good. Nor is The Zibber. But you've already admitted that you don't watch games.


    Ceci had a couple terrible defensive plays (including getting outmuscled by Zach Parise on a goal) in this game, and his goal was absolute luck coupled with a terrible defensive play by Marco Scandella.  

    If you call getting your head in a half-nelson being out-muscled, then yes.  I thought Parisee and some other Wild forwards were getting away with a ton of contact that on other days would be called interference.  This is the least-penalized team in the league, apparently, and if last night was any indication in what they usually get away with then that explains it.

    Some teams just get the short end of the stick from the refs and there's usually no explaining it.  Other than the Clouston Effect.

    Yes, Ceci was lucky on the goal, and he had a couple of weak plays, defensively, but just before that goal I turned to my kid and said Ceci has been playing really well, for the most part.

    Harpur, on the other hand.  OMG, love his size and the fact that he can skate, but he was so out of position a few times.  On one play he ended up playing forward and Bobby covered back for him -- except that they were still in the defensive zone.  Mind you, it's his first year in pro, he is a D-man and larger -- two factors that usually mean longer adjustment times to the NHL speed.  His size and reach are still an advantage, but those alone will not let him dominate players like he did in junior.  I hope he gets a couple more games.

    Agreed.

    I think that sounds about right. He might be looking for longer term. Personally I can stomach that deal. He seems to have finally found his groove in Boston but I'm sure he would fair well in the Ottawa system since it's more offencive like it was in Dallas. Mind you who knows what the next coach will be preaching next year.

    I wish we could pay him 7 million for 3 years, but I doubt that flies. Personally can't see him getting a 5th year, but I'd be really nervous to pay him over 3 for that 5th year. So either 4 years 26 million or 5 years 29 million I guess.

    It's conceivable...still unlikely we can do it, but it's not completely outlandish

    There were positives. But his inability to outmuscle Parise cost us a goal against.

    5.5M x 5 would be reasonable, no? May not even be an issue depending on what happens before July 1st. I can see the draft being a big day for the Sens

    I think the lowest you can get him for is 6 mil a year, but it's certainly doable if Melnyk is up to it and he's sweet talked something fierce by Karlsson.

    If Hoffman leaves, yeah, Eriksson would be a nice guy to bring in.

    This game shows how Cameron has no situational awareness. Up a goal with under 2 minutes left and we get a PP. Cmaeron sends out Hoffman to man the left point. You have to know that if Minny gets the puck in the neutral zone they will pull Dubnyk, which makes it a 5 on 5 and we have 4 forwards on the ice.

    FIRE CAMERON NOW !!!!!!
