NHL Hockey is Back!

Yesterday, the National Hockey League (NHL) season began once more with three games in Toronto, Boston, and Vancouver.

Tonight marks the start of the season for the Ottawa Senators, who will be in Detroit to play the Red Wings. I won't be able to watch it because I'll be gaming, of course, but...

This season marks the Ottawa Senators' 20th anniversary in their return to the NHL, and the All-Star game and all the festivities that go along with that will happen in Ottawa this year. Yet for all of that, this is a year or rebuilding in the Ottawa game, and the team is not expected to make the NHL playoffs. While everything starts off shiny and hopeful with the start of a new NHL season, I suspect that the Ottawa Senators will be facing a difficult year, and there will be some nights where fans of the team will be embarrassed by the Senators' showing on the ice. But with all of that said and done, new coach Paul McLean will bring something different to the team this year, and the influx of rookies (some of whom played 20+ games in a Senators' uniform last season) will bring new blood and excitement to the team this year.

I don't Ottawa will make the playoffs this year, but I'll be pleasantly surprised if they do. But I think it's going to be a fun season of Ottawa Senators hockey this season, if nothing else. And will be a good indication of what the future holds for the team.

Go Sens Go!
