Uh Oh Ottawa

Things arent looking good in the nations capital. The dominator may not dominate.Senator fans for the most part have been looking past the teams recent lack of success to the playoffs where its goaltending savoir would appear. This is looking less and less likely as tsn.ca is reporting that Hasek will not return for any games in the regular season and may miss a few games in the playoffs. Hasek said he simply did not feel comfortable enough in practice to begin playing.

Can Ray Emery who has looked extremely tired lately carry the load for Ottawa? The sens team is extremely gifted and if they are playing at best they only need average goaltending to win but lately they have fallen on harder times and unless they kick it up a extra gear in the playoffs or unless Emery proves himself then this team could be in trouble if Hasek dosnt come back anytime soon.

    Things aren’t looking good in the nations capital? Are You Kidding Me?

    Highest Scoring Team in the League, Best Defence Corp, Two 100 point scorer (Alfie, Heatley), Spezza is top 3 in the league Points per Game, Two Norris Candidates, Awesome penalty kill, some of the best rookies in the league, GM and Coach that have seen everything, Home ICE Advantage and playing one of the weaker playoff teams in the NHL….things are looking great in Ottawa!

    Honestly, even though Ottawa has a strong team upfront and defensively, I’d be worried getting into the playoffs without Hasek.

    Sure, the Sens have a way better team than Tampa Bay and/or Atlanta, but the fire power upfront of any of those two could come and haunt the Sens in the first round.

    On the other hand, if they face Montreal it would be a different story. Just like the Leafs of the past years, the Habs seems to play very well against Ottawa even though they are outmatched on paper. Without Hasek for the Sens, Montreal could find a way to win games with a hot goaltender.

    I said they’d make the finals earlier this year, but I really don’t know if I should count on them for my Playoffs pools. Emery is very good, I know it… but he really looked tired in his last games. I’m not sure he could get the Sens all the way to the cup if Hasek doesen’t come back (or worse: if he comes back and re-injure himself).

    No Hasek = No Cup, let alone 3rd round.

    Ray Emery Sucks.

    If Hasek can’t bring himself back, there is going to be the most amount of disappointment in Sens History this time around…

    muckies….face these facts

    -ottawa has had a extremely tough time lately and if you dont see that then you are kidding yourself.

    -ray emery did play well in march but lately he has looked slow and unless he can regain his form from earlier then i dont think he can get them to where they need to go.

    -the sens can have as many good defensemen as they want but they still need to be healthy. phillips will be playing with rust and some possible injury and chara has looked shakey since his return from his own injury.

    -spezza needs to be a man and it really dosnt matter how many points he has, if he plays like this in the playoffs he will get eaten up with all his cut through centre ice behind the back passes.

    The sens are a great team but they have hit a rut at the WORST possible time. I would like to see them prove me wrong but at this point unless Hasek comes back for round 2 they will have a rough go with a NJ or Philly if they continue to play like this. They need to gel and play like a team once again. As for your coach. It may come back to haunt him that he continued to play emery game after game because emery’s confidence looks a little shaken and looks extremely tired in net at times. He should have played morrison much more often.
