    We didn't trade for him, though.

    Yes. That's obviously the player I'm referring to.

    I think its important for Gaborik and Burrows to play themselves off this roster for next year. I am not sure why either of them are dressing for this team. Neither should have a future here. Decisions like this have plagued the team all year.

    Meh. Plus/minus for a bottom 6 forward is a stupid stat.

    Claesson is officially my least favorite defenceman this team has seen in at least a few years.

    I'm trying to remember the last Sens defenceman I dislike more than him. It's hard.

    I totally agree, it's my least favorite stat because of how unreliable it is, but the eye test tonight supported it.

    I'm not sure if it's because he's slow now, or bad now, or both.

    He certainly has to be one of the most disappointing players for the Sens this entire season.

    I'm sold on Duchene. Watching him play so many games you can see he's a real #1 centre. Wonder what it will cost to re-sign him.

    Hard work game by the journeymen including Paajarvi with 2 goals playing close to the net. Good game by Pageau, Ryan and Smith who really worked hard. Hoffman's game didn't jump out at me but it shows how valuable he is. The weak spot for me was Claesson. Too bad his game hasn't improved he does nothing that stands out positively even when his game isn't this bad. I can't see him being here long

    I smell a Claesson Cowen poll coming. He really seems to have taken a step back .. it happens. He will never be more than a bottom pairing guy imo.. he just doesn't skate well enough, and he has a lot of weaknesses... He is inconsistent .,. but more consistently bad than good.

    Nah, I think I liked Cowen a bit more. Not by a whole lot. I think I give Cowen a pass in this particular head-to-head because of the injuries.

    I want to say.... Mike Lundin? For sure I hated Brian Lee more as well, but that's a long, long time ago.

    Florida did not look like a very hungry team. They got what they deserved tonight.
    On to Tampa for the Sens a back to back against the best team in the East imo.

    Lundin never really got enough ice/game time for me to really develop a dislike for him. Plus he was only here for one year in a season and playoff run that I mostly have fond memories of (The year of course ended with a game 5 victory over Montreal. NOTHING HAPPENED AFTER).

    Well. I’m sorry, but when your team isin a playoff chase and there’s that many empty seats, I find that odd.

    Just move em to Quebec City already.

    God, I remember still living at home, seeing Lee's mug for the first time on the front page of the Sun on a Sunday morning, and saying to my adolescent self "we drafted that dink?"

    Good times.

    I actually think Brian Lee is my least favorite Senator of all time.

    Claesson is a bit of a party boy.

    He’ll settle down this summer I hope

    What? You don’t think it’s a good idea to draft a kid who looks 12?

    He looks like a 45 year old assistant bank manager in this picture. He's in charge of business accounts, and is the kind of guy who brags when he takes work calls at dinner.
