Moving On- Sens Sign Parrish

SensChirp July 8, 2011 0

(UPDATE 10:37 AM)- The Ottawa Senators have signed forward Mark Parrish to a one year/two way contract. With all the changes in Binghamton, this move should provide some veteran depth for the AHL team.

After a hectic couple of days, we are slowing but surely getting SensChirp back on track.  Some sort of mass spamming incident caused the server to crash and meant we had to remove some features while we identified the problem.

We don’t have everything completely figured out just yet but we are getting there.

For now anyway, the comment section will only appear for registered users.  That should only be temporary but this is why some of you may not be seeing the comment section.  Again, only a temporary change until we can determine where the spamming attacks were coming from.  The forum has also been disabled for the time being.

But enough about that. On to a couple pieces of Sens news that have surfaced over the past couple days.

  • Unrestricted free agent Ryan Shannon has found a new home in Tampa Bay.  He signed a one year deal with the Lightning yesterday.  The Bolts looked at Shannon at the deadline and have always been a fan. Sorry to see Shannon go but glad to see he’s getting a chance with a good hockey club.
  • Roman Wick is also moving on.  The restricted free agent has signed a three year contract with the Kloten Flyers in Switzerland.  There were high hopes for Wick heading into this season but he just wasn’t able to find a spot for himself with the big club.  He was a strong player down in Binghamton though and will be missed.
  • Ryan Keller and Ryan Potulny have both found work elsewhere and may soon be joined by defenceman Andre Benoit.  He is apparently considering a contract offer to play in Switzerland next season.  Benoit was a key component on Bingo’s blueline last season.
  • The Sens are still working on a contract for Bobby Butler. As Tim Murray suggested the other day, if Butler can not reach an agreement, he will sign his qualifying offer and play on a two way contract next season.
