2 Up, 2 Down

In news that won't really make any real difference to the team, Corey Locke and Robin Lehner were called up to the Sens, while Jim O'Brien and Mike Brodeur were returned to the AHL. This should come as a bit of a surprise, as many thought Locke didn't have much of a shot at being called up. Perhaps his 4 point performance on Tuesday night helped his cause.

Understandably, Locke was thrilled with the chance to finally play in the show. After all, he is the AHL's leading scorer and we have a severe problem scoring, so how much could it hurt to take a shot with him. I know many Sens fans will be very happy with this move, as many of you have been emailing me for weeks hoping he'd get a shot.

The 2 players are already with the team in Boston and are expected to play Thursday night in Long Island, if the storm doesn't upset their travel plans. No word yet if they plan to give Lehner a start or not, but with 6 losses in a row, all by Elliott, it seems likely he will get one.

Thoughts on the promotions/demotions?

this blog is shit. What are you even talking about....you just ramble on and on. how can you say "This should come as a bit of a surprise, as many thought Locke didn't have much of a shot at being called up." and then in the next paragraph say "I know many Sens fans will be very happy with this move, as many of you have been emailing me for weeks hoping he'd get a shot." So let me get this straight....No one thought he should be called up, but you got tons of emails saying they wanted him called up. If you are any older than 14, this blog is a joke.

Frankly, I think it's a good move. We're clearly out of the playoffs, and the last thing I want them to do is pull a Toronto and rally too late so they finish 9th or 10th in the conference and miss out on both the playoffs and a good draft pick. I say tank the season. Rotate the call-ups so we can all get a preview of the kids contending for a spot on the roster next year after we've dropped some dead weight. Give everyone a chance on the top line, and spread the ice time around.

you know it's completely possible for many to have thought he had no shot at being called up, while at the same time that a bunch of fans wanted him called up.

This blog is garbage. The writer cares more about fashion, showing off his season tickets and rehashing news feeds than providing any sort of analysis. The interview with that girl from Live 88.5 made me want to throw my radio through the English language.

Spoiled unemployed 19 year old is what I'm guessing.

I hear the biggest knock on Locke has been his speed. I guess we'll soon find out. Ottawa desperately needs another Diamond in the rough like Alfie or Datsyuk

Hey, I don't comment here often, but just happened to read that jackasses comments.

Not sure what his problem is, you seem to be doing a fine job.

Two things, if you're going to bash another persons blog do two things:

1) Put your name to your comments
2) Show us your own blog

Until then, shut your fucking mouth.

Nothing to lose, lots to gain. I heard on the radio he played a total of four NHL games and averaged less than five minutes for each. That's not getting much of a chance...let's hope Locke can light it up like he has everywhere he's played.
