It is finally here.
After months of draft talk, trade speculation, coaching changes, free agency chatter, line up banter and endless discussion about the second line centre position, the Ottawa Senators season finally gets started tonight!!
For Ottawa, it is a tall task right out of the gate. The perennial powerhouse, Detroit Red Wings, are one of the most consistent, well-coached organizations in the league and are always a threat. Add in the fact that it’s there home opener and you know the Sens are in tough.
But if anyone would knows how to beat the Wings, it’s Paul MacLean. A staple in the Wings organization, MacLean is now on our side and will make his Sens debut behind the bench against his former employer. Not a bad way to start his Ottawa coaching career.

Let’s get this thing started! GO SENS GO!!
