Hat tip to The 6th Sens for this story.
While the season hangs in the balance here in Ottawa, you have to think that fans in Binghamton are at least a little bit excited about the team they may be able to ice this upcoming season.
With guys like Mark Stone, Robin Lehner, Jared Cowen and Mika Zibanejad all AHL-eligible due to their entry level contracts and host of other young prospect close to making the jump, the Binghamton Senators will be worth watching in the event of a lockout.
With some speculating that worst case scenario, this lockout could last more than a full season, it’s important for both players and fans to start making alternate plans.
How do you plan on coping with a lengthy lockout?
- Some good news over the weekend as forward Peter Regin indicated he has been cleared for contact and that rehab on his injured shoulder is progressing well. I've mentioned it before but Regin definitely has a chance to be an important player for the Senators but only if he can stay healthy.
- Former-Senator and public enemy number one, Dany Heatley is suing his ex-agent for $11 million dollars. Heatley claims that Stacey McAlpine lured him into several real-estate ventures across Canada and the United States with promises of huge returns. Wonder how Sens Owner Eugene Melnyk feels about this case?
- This has been making the rounds for the past week or so but I figured I would post it here as well. It’s a 14 minute video of all 78 of Erik Karlsson’s points last season. I should warn you- it will make you that much more desperate for the return of NHL hockey. View at your own risk!
- Plenty of good suggestions came in during Friday’s “GM for a Week” post. Most of you would place the emphasis on adding another top six forward while others would make defence a priority. Liked the suggestion of Sandy best, who took an aggressive approach, offer-sheeting PK Subban and then trading for Evander Kane.
