Senators’ Tkachuk: The Right Draft Choice?

With the fourth-overall pick in the 2018 NHL Entry Draft, the Ottawa Senators selected Brady Tkachuk. While in most cases this pick would have been made and done with, for the Senators, it’s never that simple. While Tkachuk impressed in his rookie season, it’s impossible not to think about the numerous other options available. This draft pick is much bigger than just Tkachuk. In the trade that brought Matt Duchene to Ottawa, one of the pieces that general manager Pierre Dorion sent to the Co...

Ottawa Senators Looking Forward to Better Things After Awful Season

Ottawa Senators defenceman Mark Borowiecki is looking at the bright side. As players cleaned out their lockers and prepared to go their separate ways following a last-place finish in the NHL standings, the one consistent message was that things would get better. “Literally nowhere to go but up,” Borowiecki said Monday. “With some of the guys that we have coming in, some of these young kids are going to be huge contributors for us, big impact players for a long time and now it’s a matter of...

Video- Chippy In Calgary

from Wes Gilbertson of the Calgary Sun, The boo-birds were loud and committed to the cause. Trouble is, the home team didn’t give them any other reason to clear their throats. Los Angeles Kings defence stalwart Drew Doughty was greeted with boos nearly every time he touched the puck in Monday’s matchup at the Saddledome — a response to his rip-job earlier in the day on local fan favourite Matthew Tkachuk — but the Flames didn’t exactly make him eat his words.

On a trade deadline in which almost every other Western Conference contender made significant moves, the conference-leading Calgary Flames only added a depth defenseman. Flames general manager Brad Treliving was apparently reluctant to mess with team chemistry and/or give up futures for rental players. In doing so, he seems confident his team can make a deep playoff run exactly as is, which goes against the instincts of most of his counterparts. Brad Treliving (Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports) ...
