Senators News: October 10th

-Roster changes are still coming to both Binghamton and Elmira, but mid-week everything is quiet (everyone in Binghamton was at practice today except for Shane Prince).  Binghamton’s season begins on Saturday (13th) and the Jackals on Friday (12th). [Reported practice lines: Silfverberg-Pageau-Zibanejad; Petersson-Cannone-Hoffman; Cowick-Grant-Stone; Cowen-Benoit, Eckford-Blood, Borowiecki-Gryba, Claesson.]

Matt Weinstein is the new beat reporter for the Binghamton Senators and has big shoes to fill in the form of the departed Joy Lindsay.

The Raaymaker worries that if Ben Bishop signs an AHL deal it may hurt Robin Lehner‘s development.  I don’t see the problem–competition is good for both players–the only guy sweating that possibility is Nathan Lawson.

-Sens blogger Brochenski joins the 6th Sens, which I only bring up because it reminds me that I forgot to mention his blog on the Sens penalty killing last season and how brutal Zenon Konopka was on it.

Stu Hackel wonders if NHL players who sign in low-level leagues will see their play suffer post-lockout.  The conclusion he comes too is pretty simple: it depends on how hard they work.  The talent level of the league is less relevant than how much work they put into it.
