With the NHL Entry Draft now just five days away, there will certainly be some busy days ahead for the Ottawa Senators and for the site. With that in mind I felt like this weekend would be a good time to take a little break and recharge the batteries.
As Twitter followers may know, I spent the last three night in Boston. It was an amazing weekend that included a couple Red Sox games and a Stanley Cup Parade.
As a Red Sox fan, it has always been a dream of mine to get to a game at Fenway Park. On Friday night, we sat out in the Centre Field Bleachers and then on Saturday our seats were directly behind the visiting dugout. Unbelievable expereine and something I will never forget.
The parade on Saturday was absolutely insane. Obviously a great time but here’s hoping the next Stanley Cup parade I attend is here in Ottawa.
Thanks to the loyal readers of the site for keeping things going on here while I was gone. I was able to follow the comment section over the course of the weekend and saw that the discussion continued on seamlessly in my absence.
As it turns out, the vacation was well timed because this turned out to be a fairly quiet weekend for the Sens.
One piece of news that did surface though is the pending addition of Dave Cameron to the coaching staff. I think it’s pretty clear who is pulling the strings on that personnel move but despite his recent struggles in big games, Cameron is a hard working guy that should help out the Sens staff.
I just hope that new head coach Paul MacLean was given the opportunity to be involved in this decision. Nothing official has been announced as of yet but I think we could hear something as soon as tomorrow.
We’ll get into some draft talk starting tomorrow.
And in case you’re reading…Happy Father’s Day, Dad!
