Senators News: November 14th

Ben Blood was re-assigned to Elmira.  Blood hadn’t suited up for Binghamton since October 28th.

-Elmira plays Reading tonight; the Royals are 7-5-1, with Yannick Tifu and Denny Urban lead the way with 10 points each; Philipp Grubauer has shouldered the goaltending load winning five of the team’s games.

Mark Recchi thinks the players should agree to a deal now because:

But look what happened, the players always get their money. They’re always going to get paid, no matter what. Look at that last deal. We ended up with the cap and everyone thought it was a bad deal. But it ended up great, right? No matter what the system is, or has been, the players get their money. No matter what the contract, the owners always find a way to pay them more. That’s why I say, get a deal and get back in there…the money’s always there.

I don’t see the sense in this when it comes to negotiating–things worked out last time so things will work out this time?  There’s also a disconnect between Recchi comparing a deal done now versus the last one requiring the loss of a season.  If the players won a longer lockout, how does that create a need for a shorter one?  There’s not much logic here.
