21 Years Ago

21 years ago today, on December 6th, 1990 in Florida, Bruce Firestone and the city of Ottawa were awarded an NHL expansion team. They would be called the Senators and would return to the NHL after nearly 70 years. The idea was hatched over a game of shinny hockey between Firestone, Cyril Leeder and Randy Sexton. If it wasn't for them, we wouldn't have a the world class hockey we now get to watch regularly. Needless to say we owe them a large thank you. 21 years ago today, it was a good day to be a Sens fan. Cheers to everyone involved in the bid.

A friendly reminder of that day 21 years ago. If you don't get a bit dusty, you're not a Sens fan.
