Ottawa Senators Season Preview
After six episodes of viewing the other teams in the North Division, it is finally time. Today, Alex takes a look at the 2021 Ottawa Senators season. Previewing everything that might come with it. To help him, he has Graeme Nichols joining him. The two start by going over the offseason one last time and giving their thoughts on different signings and additions Ottawa made. They also take a look at this training camp and some decisions made by the Senators that they agree and don’t agree with.
One thing they agreed with was loading up the top six with all the talent they have. Brady Tkachuk, Joshua Norris, and Drake Batherson look like they will form a first-line and Graeme highlights why that could be very successful. They also go over some depth choices and why it might be important to play some more kids eventually.
As well, they examine the defence and why it might be a sour spot to watch this season. Finally, they highlight the goaltending and Alex makes a case for why it may be the year for Matt Murray to bounce back.
