It's been a while since I have blogged. In fact, I have not commented on the playoffs.
A while ago I ripped Alfredsson for not being a leader. I take that back. He was the only Senator (forward) who showed up in the series and in the final game. It is obvious that Spezza and Heatley do not have what it takes to go that extra mile. Emery, Alfredsson, Fisher, Redden, and Phillips are the core. Ottawa, get what you can by trading one of Spezza or Heatley and replace one or both with a guy with heart.
Oh, Chris Neil...what a waste. In fact, Lou Franschesgetti called into Leafs Lunch on AM 640 this week and made a great point about him. Chris Neil forgot what brought him in the league. Hitting, being aggressive. The problem is, he thinks he's a scorer all of a sudden.
Well Ottawa, as a leafs fan, I am loving every minute of it.
