Senators News: March 24th

Nichols delves into the Jay Bouwmeester rumours and comes to this conclusion:

Throw in the fact that Bouwmeester has a no-trade clause and the presumed likelihood that Calgary would want some NHL-ready young talent for J-Bo (mind you, I may be underestimating the Jay Feaster factor here), and I just can’t see a trade involving Ottawa coming to fruition.

Which were my thoughts yesterday–I just don’t see the Murray’s having an interest or a need for Bouwmeester.

Sylvain St-Laurent delves into the Murray’s NCAA free agent goals and writes that while they made a pitch for Andrej Sustr they thought they would have a better chance at Danny DeKeyser.  I agree with Sylvain that DeKeyser is likely to sign with a team that will play him immediately and that might not be the case in Ottawa (unlike a couple of years ago when there was plenty of space for Bobby Butler).

-Binghamton defeated Hamilton 4-2 yesterday, with Nathan Lawson picking up the win (27 shots) and Wacey Hamilton, Mark Stone (2), and Stephane Da Costa scored the goals.  Here’s the boxscore and the highlights.

-The B-Sens lost to Connecticut 6-1 this afternoon; Marc Cheverie made 29 saves for the loss while Mark Stone scored the only goal.  Corey Cowick and Wacey Hamilton were a team worst -4.  Definitely an ugly game for Binghamton.  Here’s the boxscore.

Luke Richardson offered a brief comment on rookie Michael Sdao:

He’s obviously an intelligent person. You never know if that’s going to translate into the sports world, but with Mike it does.
