    GDT: Senators @ Capitals - Nov 22, 2017, 7:00pm

    Post by tim1_2 on Wed Nov 22, 2017 9:50 am

    Bounce back time. The Caps are a mediocre 11-10-1 and are coming off a 4-1 loss to the Flames. The Sens have lost 3 in a row and are due for a W.

    I assume it'll be Matrix for the good guys and Holtby for the Caps.

    I'm not sure what the lines or D pairings will look like. Hopefully we see Chabot get in there, but there's no guarantee with Harpur still up. Boucher said the only reason Chabot is up is due to injuries. I believe Nick Paul is still up as well, so we'll see what happens.

    Sens morning skate is at 11:30. Maybe we'll get some insight into the lines/d-pairings.

    Bobby said his finger is still tender so he can't shoot a one-timer right now.

    7D tonight, with Chabot and Harpur both in.

    Dido is the forward that's sitting.

    Sens claimed Gabriel Dumont off waivers from Tampa.

    Why? Please say its not because he plans on playing 13 forwards and sitting Chabot. You're killing me, Guy. Facepalm

    Dumont will join the team but won't play tonight.

    Yeah, I don’t get us picking up Dumont. We’ve got white that could play up here, maybe other young forwards that could be more offensive. But you know guy, loves his vets.... if you can call Dumont that.

    Edit: yes he did, for 3 years. Another Boucher pick?

    From everything Dorion has said, I think he wants White to play in the AHL for most of the year.

    Tampa fans are sad to see him go. Worth a try to see if he's a fit on the fourth line. If not, waive him.

    I really don't understand all this vitriol towards Boucher. Are fans in this city really that fickle? It's mindblowing.

    You guys just don't get my sense of humour. There's no vitriol.

    Or was there outcry on twitter?

    Of course there was outcry on Twitter.

    I dunno...what Boucher players do we have already? Pyatt? Good. Dido? Fine. It's depth, and Dumont can take faceoffs apparently...see where it goes I guess.

    Sorry I wasn't trying to single you out, I was just frustrated from what I've been reading on the internet. I'm going to limit my sens digest to this site

    I’m fine with Boucher if I’m being 100%honest. Probably one of the best coach we’ve ever had. I mean, the proof is in the pudding. I think under his style of play we overachieved last year. Probably partially due Anyways.
    I do like the addition of dido and Pyatt. Too early to tell on Gabriel but I would like more offensive minded players getting shots.

    But I think things are far from perfect.
