Boucher seems like a good two year coach, and then the team implodes on him.

Scotty Bowman in his prime couldnt have coached this sens roster.

Well, cant blame him this time. I imagine he got criticized for team play, lost it and said "WTF can i do when you trade away a future hall of fame d-man and every top scoring forward i had!"

This was a guarantee to happen by the end of the season.  I'm just surprised Melnyk signed off on having to pay for an extra coach for a month.  The only reason Boucher wasn't fired last year was because then they'd have had to pay two head coaching salaries for the full year.  Remember the public declaration last offseason from Dorion that he'd meet with Boucher where the GM made some demands of him in order to sign off on him staying for this season?  That was the beginning of the end right there.

A thorough look at the complete disaster that Ottawa has been over the last 20 months or so (read the whole Twitter thread on it...):

Ottawa has gone from Eastern Conference finals and one goal away from going to the finals to scorched earth implosion. It’s honestly sad to see, no sports fan should have to endure this kind of bad luck/terrible management.

Columbus losing 4-0 to Edmonton is good news.

I just noticed Sens are in 31st place (clear of 30th place by 5 pts) but Aves have their pick anyways.:lol:

Should the Sens just cut their losses and become the Nordiques?

Both Ottawa and Quebec City can blow away and die as far as I'm concerned. Move the Sens to Kansas City or something. Scum.

 Games left, will be a challanging stretch to finish up season, for sure is gonna be a tough week in California.

I think will need to tear it up middle couple weeks of March.

March 29th till April 6th; Columbus, Winnipeg, Tampa Bay, Washington....and Leafs to finish with.

Canes get a point, Pittsburgh won, Columbus won, Islanders won...

 

Shit, if the Habs lose tonight it's almost absolute worst case scenario.

Thinking of GM's meetings- I would like to tweak playoff seeding as follows-- I don't evoke crossover rule unless there is a fifth team at least in any division that is higher up in standing than a fourth in other division in same conference. In other words, regardless of standing , I don't take anybody out of their division unnecessarily- must be knocked out by a fifth seed from other division. I believe division rivalries have merit. All I am doing is taking a few possible outcomes out of the crossover scenario.

Personally, I would like to see a simplification of the playoff format. The wild card race is fun, but I can never remember the particularities of the format that generates it.

I think my suggestion would simplify it.

Mark stone 8 years at 9.5. That seems reasonable for an elite winger.

Wonder if St. Cloud dudes Poehling and Lindgren will have any influence on getting LH d-man Jimmy Schuldt to sign with Habs?

Drouin is a guy who should spend a night in the pressbox every month or two.  He can be a game-breaker but too often he just floats.  Not made for an 82 game season.
