There’s an old saw how the biggest thrill in gambling is winning a bet and the second biggest thrill is losing one, essentially explaining why people stick around in situations where they are consistently losing. Ottawa is one of the few teams in the league with a 2-way bandwagon, sure they gain fans on the [...]
Consistently unreliable sources say that Senators GM Brian Murray is close to finalizing a deal that would send disgruntled winger Dany Heatley out of Ottawa in an elaborate 6 way NHL/KHL trade involving the ONE guy you didn’t want moved. Seriously. While not your favourite player per se, the veteran skater was a quietly consistent [...]
