The Labor Day Links


Once again Labor Day is upon us and as we all know, Labor Day is the unofficial end to summer. Also you can no longer wear white pants, if that's your bag it sucks to be you. If you have kids, at least they're going back to school. But usually the blow of summer ending is lessened by the fact that hockey is just around the corner. That is not the case this year for obvious reasons, so all of you hockey mad people will have to find other ways to spend your time. It's an unfortunate game of chicken, where no one is the winner, especially not the fans. My gift to you is the latest edition of The Links. Happy Labor Day!

- Puck Daddy has been doing a series on the essentials of each organization. Here is the Sens edition

- This is vinatge Damo Spin.

- Larry Brooks with his CBA take.

- This has nothing to do with hockey, but rather baseball but is still a must read. She's basically anyone who's ever worked in sports' hero.

- Thought Todd Bertuzzi injuring people was over? Think again.

- Gary Bettman is now making 8 mill per. No word on if he has a NTC or not. I imagine he would.

- Former Sen Mike Fisher signed a 2 year 8.4 million extension from Smashville. There goes your hope he would come back to the Sens if you're an old blue eyes fan.

- Twitter fight!!!!!

- Ottawa legend Brian Kilrea had a triple bypass surgery recently. If you seem him around wish him well.

- LOL Buffalo. I guess they're making up for lost time after never having the money to keep players for so many years.

- See everyone of Erik Karlsson's 78 points from last year in this video.

- Call me crazy but appointing Georges Laraque as the head of anything seems like a dumb move.

- Mika Zibanejad will be playing in North America this season no matter what. Here as well.

- The only team dumb enough to give L'Artiste another shot has to be Montreal right?

- If you're looking for some hockey action this year, here's the Bingo schedule.

- I guess twitter is too much for some people.

- Oh Dany. Meet karma.

- I was unaware that hockey ass was a thing but apparently it's been cured.

- This is why I don't follow him or anyone like him, this too.

- An interesting take on the possible new CBAby Dean Brown.

- A very smart move by the NHL in my opinion. Perhaps why they may not be as concerned as most fans are about a possible cancelled season again.

- In the event that there is a season somehow, get your tickets here.

- The NHL's 30 in 30 takes a look at the Senators.

- Sean Avery has a ridiculous loft.

- Looks like Erik Condra made it to the HOF. He also enjoys exagerating how many times he's been somewhere.

- And Jesse Winchester likes Red Bull. I think that says it all. It gives you wings, but not an NHL contract.

- We got a D for our offseason grade from Sports Illustrated. I'd be upset but Muir for a F for that awful haircut.

- LA is starting a fan code. Seems like Philly needs it more but interesting idea.

- The Sens didn't do that well in Uni Watch's NHL uniform rankings but at least they weren't last when they ranked all the uni's in all 4 major sports leagues. They came in 99th out of 122.

- This is very cool and yet very sad at the same time. At least they have a sweet arena, oh wait. Well a good team, oh wait. Well they have, um.........JT

- The Sens are looking to put up a 2nd Sens Plex in the east end of the city.

- The Sens says it's business as usual but I can't see it going downt that way. Fans are mad.

- Here's an article about Corey Locke playing Finland. Note you need to speak Finnish to read this.

- The NHL asks 6 questions about the Sens heading into the season.

- I can't say I disagree with Scott Burnside's take here on the CBA problems.

- Newfie and all around nice guy Colin Greening plays 20 questions.

- I know this is for a good cause and all but just seems a bit ugly no?

- An interesting graphic from the Wild about the impact of Suter and Parise.

- I am in no way a fan of Kris Letang but this and this are AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!

- This just looks weird to see him rocking this doesn't it?

- Do you think we still could use a player or two to round out the team? Here's the list of UFA's still available and a heads up, it ain't pretty.

- This explains a lot.

- Yikes! People are really mad at Bettman, though they're just a tad short of their goal at the moment.

- Here's 10 predicatbly boring ways to spend your time if there's a lockout.

- The Hockey News makes predictions for the year. See where they place the Sens this year.

- And finally, the list of the top 10 prospects in the Sens organization. Agree with the placements?

Thanks for reading and follow me on twitter @SensTown
