    After a thorough beatdown last week, the Senators from Ottawa visit Denver to take on the Representatives of the Colorado Avalanche hockey team. Will the Senators veto the current Avalanche 4 game winning streak? Or will the Avalanche whip the Senators into allowing all of their goals to pass through without any opposition?

    The sucky thing tho, is without Kads out there to win the FO, they're back to the last couple years model of losing the FO 90% of the time and chasing the puck and trying to get into the zone for the first :45 - 1:00+ of the PP before getting set up.

    Sadly, I think it might be. Kadri expected out "weeks, not days"

    Haha love the theme.
    If Dorion was our Senate leader, i’d be moving to Denver with JGP on the next flight.

    Our best option is to move Compher to 2C and have Kamenev at 3C.
    Landeskog-MacKinnon-Rantanen
    Nuke-Compher-Burakovsky
    Jost-Kamenev-Donskoi
    Nieto-Bellemare-Calvert

    Put Jost next to Mack and try and make him look good for Dorion, or better yet just have Mack put on Josts jersey during intermission and let him play a few shifts to bump up his value.

    It won't happen, but Jost needs to step up

    At least we don't have the toughest schedule over the next three weeks without Kadri:

    OTT, WSH, LA, TBL, NYI, @ ANA, @ LA, BUFF, @ CAR, @ NSH, @ DET

    Excited to see Kamenev for the first time. Forgot he existed for a minute there.

    Hopefully another strong game from the Avs followed by Pageau being left in town. That 2nd line without Kadri/Bura off it looks a lot less dangerous.

    So essentially, Compher, Donskoi, and Landy stick together which I think is great news.

    Kamenev this year hasn't been impactful but hasn't been horrible either. I thought he was OK in his limited role.

    Bednar finally realized that Landy was an anchor on the 1st line. I think he can really help the 3rd line though so it's a win-win. I hope it stays like this.

    Have we ever seen Kam play with skilled linemates?

    I'm a little surprised they haven't tried it. For all of the talk about appropriate roles and opportunities neither Greer or Kam have gotten a sniff at being given a chance at anything other than grinder or bottom six roles. Despite both having had near or at PPG AHL seasons.

    Not that big of a complaint, but its interesting.

    No? He's the 13th forward so he isn't going to get ice time with skilled guys.

    I expanded a little. Hes more of a skilled player in my eyes than a bottom six type. They've given young players those opportunities plenty of times.

    Surprised to see Nuke not on the top unit. Seemed to be working there

    and figures I get to finally watch a game and we’re now missing a key piece to the lineup

    It should be Nuke.


    I'd plant Nuke and Gabe right in front of the net while Cale, Nate, and Mikko just fire bombs from everywhere.

    I thought he struggled earlier in the year, but he was really good when Donskoi was out for a few weeks.
