Senators News: January 21st

-Ottawa faces the Florida Panthers (1-0-0) tonight.  As expected Craig Anderson will get the start against the Panthers and there are no changes to the lineup.

Paul MacLean talked about the Erik Karlsson-Marc Methot pairing in their first game:

I thought him [Karlsson] and his partner (Marc Methot) were a little bit trying to do too much and force things through the course of the game, but at the same time they still played well enough for us to win the game and they were a big part of it. But they can play better.

Varada reminds us that the primary comparable for Kyle Turris is Vladimir Tarasenko.  The logic goes that Ottawa traded their 2010 first round pick for David Rundblad and the Blues picked Tarasenko–the Sens swapped Rundblad for Turis, ergo that’s ultimately who was exchanged for whom.  Varada says Ottawa “might not have” picked the Russian, but we know for a fact that they wouldn’t (for the life of me I can’t find the quote, but Murray said the Sens wouldn’t have drafted the player St. Louis did).  That’s irrelevant when you look at who wins a trade, but it can’t truly be assessed until a few more years have passed.

-Binghamton plays St. John’s (17-20-3) tonight; the IceCaps are lead by Jason Jaffrey (22 points) and backstopped by Eddie Pasquale (10-14-2 2.55 .917).

This is the kind of thing Ben Blood needs to do more to be an AHL player.

-I wish The 6th Sens would include summaries of their pod casts–at least covering whatever salient points were discussed.

Mark Parisi has the week’s (er, game’s) ups and downs.  I can’t really see trends in one game, so I won’t comment on his list.

-Elmira is playing Reading (28-9-4) this afternoon.  Reading is lead by former B-Sen Yannick Tifu (42 points) and backstopped by Phillipp Grubauer (19-5-1 2.30 .912).
