Whole Mess of Whippersnappers: Silver Seven Sens
After dropping two one goal games in a row, the Hawks face another team that’s off to a surprising little start. The Sens lost their first game before rattling off 4 wins in a row before losing last night in OT. That’s a damn good start for a team that’s not expected to do very much this season. They’ve had their previous captain and most beloved player in franchise history head south before last season. The guy next in line, Jason Spezza, was moved down to Dallas. Ales Hemsky, a pick up from the Oilers at the deadline, also went down to the Lone Star State. Also gone, Joe Corvo – who seems allergic to playing on a team for consecutive years these days and Matt Kassian who went back to the Wild.
But fear not because the Senators did add plenty to compliment their young team by adding David Legwand. So that’s… something.
