Artyom Zub is close to making a decision on where to sign. Ottawa is one of two teams left.

Hope everyone is doing well.

Not the best time to start a new job but I had no choice. First week I spent in the office setting up my environment and running various tutorials. Monday I drive in to pick up my PC, monitor and various cables and set myself up on the basement. Since then all I've done is more tutorials. Still have not had the architecture overview that I expected in the first couple of days.

The old classic "we're so busy that we need to hire someone to help out but we're way too busy to on-boards them properly".

In case anyone does know Zub and his strengths and limitations, he is a PK specialist that reads the play well and has good vision. He has very limited playmaking abilities and therefore won’t ever see PP time. He has an accurate wrist shot and is able to get it through lanes. If he comes off the line, he was able to find a home for his wrist shot occasionally. He’s a good skater and defender. He’s a RH Dman.

no risk signing, could be like DeMelo was. If not, back to Russia.

If he wasn’t shown our depth chart and the number 24:30, the Sens did it wrong.

Canada seems to have gotten ahead of the curve while the US seems to be redefining what a curve looks like. This may not be over for a long time in the US of A

Well this is good news then. We just landed a free NHL player.
I don’t want to make predictions that’s he’s a bonafide top 4 until he actually starts playing but having him here definitely won’t hurt us moving forward

Still don't know what they plan on doing with Reilly and Boro if the expectation is Wolanin and Brann make the team.

Generalizing, career overseas Dmen have a much easier time adjusting to the NA game than forwards do when they decide it is time to try their luck in the best league in the world. Specifically, Zub’s game is the easiest of the bunch to transition. His reads, positioning and skating are his strengths and he will just have to use his smarts to adjust his angles and lanes. We might see some live grenade outlets to start however.

I agree with Lagood. In theory a stay-at-home defencemen's angles would be much more difficult on international ice. The only thing I can see him having an issue with is the physicality of the NHL

So apparently "Tiger King" on Netflix is the show taking the coronavirus outbreak out of the spotlight. I'll have to check it out.

Gordie Wilson (colour guy) has Covid-19.

And my first thought was "Why couldn't it have been Melnyk?"

And in another yet to be told negative story about the Sens this year, is that due to the Coronavirus, the Sens scouting for this upcoming draft will be the worst of all 31 teams without question. The shutdown of all leagues, cancellation of the Memorial Cup, tossed late season international tournaments, basically all scouting opportunities had to have happened already. The Sens didn’t have the scouting manpower to have all the proper boots on the ground like every other team. Our bare bones scouting staff will have missed a majority of prospects live games. Even with all the picks we have, unless we are on the right side of the lottery, I think in 5-10 years we will look back, instead of seeing what should have been a franchise altering draft for all the right reasons, we will see some glaring missteps from our 2020 draft. The Sens would be will served to just follow consensus draft boards this year.
