Senators News: November 1st

-No words on lineups for tomorrow’s games.  Norfolk is currently 5-1-0 and Sami Vatanen leads them in scoring with seven points; goaltenders Igor Bobkov and Frederik Andersen have split duties, with Bobkov carrying a perfect 3-0 record.  Elmira faces South Carolina sit last in their division with a 3-4-1 record.

-Things are slow enough this week that vague comments from Eugene Melnyk are news.  Melnyk wants the NHL season to be on, but doesn’t offer any solution to the CBA impasse.  It’s not surprising or noteworthy that Melnyk wants the negotiations at an end and the league to be playing–and what else would he say?

Stu Hackel corrects his article from yesterday with updated information that there is no rush for the league to cancel the Winter Classic as the financial penalty is limited and not on a particular clock in that regard.
