New Year, Same Rumors

After last night's more than embarassing loss to the Leafs, it has become more and more clear that the Sens are not a team contending this season. In fact, it appears unless a major run (i.e.- another 11 game winning streak) happens, we will beon the outside looking out when it comes playoff time.

With mediocore play this holiday season, there are rumors of change in the Sens organization. The most rampant rumor is that Cory Clouston is on the verge of being fired. I've been hearing this for the past few weeks, but didn't think they would bother firing him when his contract is up at the end of the year, but more and more I've been hearing he could be fired any day now. Too bad the person who should be fired is Bryan Murray.

Also as you can imagine, there has been many trade rumors circulating around given our position right now. Nothing concrete so far and I don't want to turn into Eklund, so I will post something once I have more specifics if I ever recieve any, but one I've heard is a major core player being moved. Other than that it's the usual suspects being talked about, but that won't do us much for this year. If anything, we should make moves on trade deadline day for younger players and draft picks in return for our aging vets to a contending team.

How unlucky are the Sens right now? Read this.

The Sens don't play until friday against Chicago, which is a rare almost week long break during the season, and although not official, I've heard that Jim O'Brien and Mike Brodeur have been sent back down to Bingo.

With a week off, look for the Sens to make some changes if they hope to save the season. What precisely they will do is anyone's guess, but one thing is for certain, changes are needed.

What do you think should be done?

absolutely agree that this team needs changes....my only concern is I don't want Murray doing these changes.

He has ruined this team!
