Best of Ottawa
Montreal and Toronto: opposites on ice
It really is a tale of two cities. And while I’m certainly no Charles Dickens, I’ll spin this story out as best as I can. We’ll leave your Ottawa Senators out of this one, people. They’ve been microscoped (new word eh?) to death from this corner. Better yet, we circle
Canada, who ya’ got?
Want 6/7th of the country after your scalp? Put together a ranking – top to bottom – of Canadian NHL clubs. So, with that in mind . . . here we go. And for the first time in many a year, the disgruntlement won’t be zinging out of Eastern Ontario.
Senators will have company in playoff chase
If the playoffs do eventually come knocking, who steps out of the Ottawa Senator’s way? Realistically the organization would need to take a significant jump in order to rally and compete for a spot as early as next season. Could it happen? Sure, but unless Senators management can figure out
Getting enough Z’s, culture changes, Sandman enters and couch-surfing
A few musings and ponderings as we move less than a couple of dimes from the National Hockey League playoffs. Zub entering Pecos Bill territory Ottawa’s own folk hero? Artem Zub seems to be the unassuming and quiet type; comfortable in getting the job done and calling it a day.
Canada’s Christmas Season Report Card

Playoffs is Ottawa’s goal, but is it realistic?
Will or can the Ottawa Senators conclude the upcoming season with a spot in the playoffs? Apparently that’s what the general manager thinks, given his contention the rebuild is over. We know what the Senators are, and that’s a young, assertive team with good pace; a team with questionable goaltending,
Rivalry week did not disappoint
Here’s how last week shaped-out for the Ottawa Senators: Monday – 6-5 win vs Toronto Wednesday – 2-1 loss vs Toronto Thursday – 7-3 loss vs Toronto Sunday – 3-2 win vs Montreal That’s a two-win week for the Sens – a continuation of their trend in the right direction.
Leafs top Canadian club list
Brian Burke has always remained an interesting hockey icon. Pull-no-punches, tell it like it is. That’s Burkie. He’s a quote machine too. When he was dismissed by the Maple Leafs a few years back, here’s what he quipped: “There's sometimes when you get fired and you see the vultures circling and
Will upsets continue in NHL’s ‘second’ round?
On to Round 2. Or is it Round 1? Under the new-look National Hockey League, take your pick. This corner went a true-blue 5-3 in its qualifying round selections, and now we’re set to stumble around blindly in the dark with daring predictions for the next round. (Whatever you want
