Senators News: December 5th

Stephane Da Costa talked about his goals for the season:

I just want to be more of an all-around player. Physically I want to be a little better, too. I got a little better physically, I think. I can take impacts a little better. We played simple, because that was my first game back and it was a hard game. I’m trying to make an impact, trying to show I can play here. I need to work hard, and I think I can make it there again. I just want to have a really good year. I’m trying to take it week to week and we’ll see what happens.

Stefan Noesen has made the preliminary US roster for WJC.

D. J. Powers writes about NHL prospects in the NCAA, but other than a passing reference to Jeff Costello offers nothing on the Sens.

Brochenski writes about former Sen Brandon Bochenski and I bring it up only for this:

Even Don Cherry was on the Bochenski Bandwagon, as he picked him to win the Calder Trophy that year, despite Bochenski up against a stacked rookie class which included the likes of Crosby and Ovechkin. Oops.
