Senators News: January 2nd

James Gordon writes briefly about Luke Richardson’s selection to coach in the AHL all-star game and rightly points out the rookie bench boss is benefiting from fantastic goaltending (particularly from Robin Lehner).

-Speaking of goaltending, ECHL ‘tender Marc Cheverie has fallen on hard times since being named the ECHL goaltender of the month for October.  He’s since gone 5-8-1 and seen his GAA go from 1.52 to 2.75 and his save percentage drop from .953 to .912.  His overall numbers aren’t terrible (he’s 16th in the league for GAA), but I wonder if he’s done enough to push the moribund Nathan Lawson if the lockout ends.

SensProspects is Tweeting that a deal is eminent between the NHL and NHLPA (no later than the 7th apparently), which either makes him a genius or foolish depending on what happens.  I, with the rest of you, will take a wait-and-see approach.

-I watched the very entertaining WJC Russia-Switzerland game (won by Russia 4-3 in a shootout).  It featured a little of everything, including poor officiating, lead changes, and late game dramatics.  When I don’t have a vested interest in the outcome of a game I cheer for the underdog, so it’s too bad the Swiss couldn’t shut the door in the third with a 3-2 lead.
