Ugh. Why bother arguing.

Come Christmas, you post your list of all the playoff teams. Then, come April, we'll review.

Look at the history of the league since the lockout, the standing change very little from October on let alone December on.

15% of teams out of it by this very date don't make it to the playoffs. I'm not stating anything other than the facts. You can tell by on ice play as well.

I'm gonna allow myself 20 seconds of daydreaming...

Man...can you imagine if Anderson played like Anderson again - not that he's been bad, he hasn't, but he hasn't been the Anderson that most of us have watched for years. That .915+ guy who steals games. And imagine if Greening continued and Michalek was finally healthy, and Karlsson continued, and Rundblad got better as the season went on...and Regin came back and was as good as he was before....

You need to make sense if you want to be taken seriously. Re-read the statement I quoted. You figure it out.

I'm making total sense.

The standings don't change much from October on let along December on. Not sure what else there is to say.

Now you're contradicting yourself. By your own admission, 15% of the teams outside of the playoffs (about 1 or 2) as of today will NOT make the playoffs. So that means that out of the bottom 14 teams, 12 to 13 will end up making the playoffs. It's a fact. You said so.

What were the stats on blocked shots last night... it seemed like we were doing a good job of that, and getting the puck away from the Leafs when they were attacking.

We had 19 blocked shots...Rundblad and Smith leading the way with 3 apiece. Toronto with 18.

19 - 18 for Ottawa with Phillips, Smith and...

... Rundblad leading the way for Ottawa with 3 each.

4 for Dion "James Norris" Phaneuf for the bad guys.

Not because of something that happened last night is it?

I have no idea, I wish they'd explain it properly.

Actually, Brennan would have broken a story here, because the Sens news thing says:

Bulletin: Senators reassign forward Kaspars Daugavins to Binghamton (AHL)
Monday, 31.10.2011 / 10:55 AM / News
Ottawa Senators
OTTAWA - The Ottawa Senators today reassigned forward Kaspars Daugavins to the club’s American Hockey League affiliate, the Binghamton Senators.

Daugavins was recalled on Oct. 24 and registered his first National Hockey League goal in Ottawa’s 3-2 win over the Toronto Maple Leafs on Sunday night. In four games with the Senators, he has one point and four penalty minutes.

In seven games with Binghamton this season, he has recorded four goals and two assists for six points. The B-Sens (5-4-1) next see action Wednesday, when they visit the Albany Devils at 7 p.m.


So, if Brennan is correct, there isn't a major injustice here, and he'll be back right after.

Greening and Condra did it last year, but there were for sure observations that they were doing it when the team was out and playing loose. Now Mac has them playing loose all the time.

Note that it was Winchester taking the defensive zone draw with 4.5 seconds to go in a one-goal game, and a 6-on-4 with the goalie pulled.

Yeah, I'm very pleased with our bottom six. Can't say enough really about how hard they work. That goes for all of them really, Neil, Konopka, Winchester, Condra, Z.Smith - nothing real flashy there, but tough to play against. And if any of them decide they're gonna take some time off and not give it 100%, there are a few guys really badly waiting for a chance to take their spot.

Come Christmas, you post your list of all the playoff teams. Then, come April, we'll review.

Not for the purposes of assigning playoff positions, but for the purposes of deciding who will be selling and who will be buying.

There will still be some teams on the bubble all the way until the deadline but, in general, by Christmas we *should* know if the Sens are a playoff team or not -- with reasonable certainty (which is another way of saying "uncertainty").

Umm, I think you meant November.

I guess I've been spoiled with A-Train, but I keep thinking we're not blocking enough shots. I think all three (or at least two) of Rundblad's shot blocks happened on one play, late in the third.
