RE: General Sens news, comments, rants etc.

I thought about what you both said TJ and Homer and I went looking for sites (as I'm not a statistician) that analyzed hockey stats and I found this site: http://hockeyanalytics.com/2008/01/the-ten-laws-of-hockey-analytics/ (sorry it's not linked I'm on my phone) It has some interesting takes on the numbers... statistically a team with a good goal diff. Just had a higher tendency to make the playoffs (which seems self evident, but as the Leafs could still bomb out makes more sense).

True about EN goals. it's also a stat that can be looked at in many ways. 

Back when the Sens dominated the league, they had a bad 1 goal game record.  Some took this as the Sens can't win close games.  

Another way to look at is that no team can go 82-0 and that season, the best a team could do against Ottawa at time was to beat them by one goal.  Other than that, more often than not, the Sens won by 2 or more goals and a few 1 goal games. 


Unfortunately that team had a bad pucker factor especially in the playoffs--and as described above in close games

We outscore opponents in the 1st

Outshoot opponents in the 2nd, but get scored on more

Shots are down in the 3rd, but scoring between the 1st and 2nd.

Opponents score against the Sens in the 2nd and 3rd quite a bit more than the 1st.

....except the Senators... they're at -3. (even Toronto is +11)


On average each NHL team played 30.5 games decided by 1 goal.  Sens are a .500 team in 1 goal games.

Washington, Pittsburgh and surprisingly Calgary have the best records in 1 goal games

another interesting thing: there is a scenario where the sens could be in a position to eliminate the leafs....by losing to the isles on the last day. Now, i'm not suggesting they throw that game....oh, wait, damn straight I am!

Ceci, Methot and Smith will not be back before end of regular season. And apparently Sens cannot call up Chabot due to some technicality.


I think they can call up Chabot once his season is over.

Sens sign Colin White to entry level contract, will join the team in Detroit.  

Sens also recall Ben Harpur.  Doesn't sound good for the health of our D

Oh thank god.  Heritage jerseys with a 2D throwback, please.  It probably can't happen in time for the Adidas takeover, but looks like they are starting to listen to the fans.

Possible rebrand with Anselmi on board?


 I have faith that they will screw this up.

Sens sign prospect White to amateur tryout.  

That's good news for the Sens.  They don't burn a year of entry level and it gets him into some 8-9 games with Bingo.  They should be able to give him lots of ice time, which he would not have gotten down the stretch in Ottawa.
