Senators News: September 11th

-There has been a dearth of Sens news of late–even the blogosphere is quiet.  What’s on everyone’s mind is the CBA and Bob McKenzie has weighed in with his thoughts in a brilliant (albeit long) column.  I can only add what I said months ago–the doom and gloom rhetoric existed in the NBA and NFL stalemates and their seasons happened anyway (a condensed one in the NBA’s case); I don’t see the NHL losing significant time over the negotiations.

-In CBA news, Swedish courts appear to be opening the door to NHL players playing in Sweden (in contrast to what the leagues themselves declared not long ago).

-Here are my profiles of Daniel Alfredsson, Craig Anderson, and the organisation’s fifth goaltender Marc Cheverie.

-Elmira has signed two more players: former Calgary Flames pick Kevin Harvey (LW, 9-270/03), who split his team between Toledo and Elmira last season (34-3-8-11), putting up 139 PIMs; and undrafted CIS grad Jean Bourbeau (RW) who spent last season with Elmira (49-10-16-26).
