It’s September; and we have reached one more milestone before the start of the 2011-12 NHL season.
With the countdown until October and reaching that final threshold before the puck drops in the regular season Fansided is going to take a look at each team in the league one day at a time.
Today we take a trip to the Capital of the country to the North (of most of us we wont get into the fact that Alaska is West of Canada nor that Detroit is North of Windsor) – Ottawa.
The Ottawa Senators had a rough go at it last season with injuries, trades, and didn’t survive past the 82 regular season games.
This off season has brought in an over haul that includes former Red Wings Assistant Coach Paul MacLean…
New Man behind the Bench
As a result of their horrible season last year, Ottawa let go head coach Cory Clouson right after the season ended. After an intensive search, Ottawa is hoping they have finally found their man.
Coming over from the Detroit Red Wings where he served as a assistant coach, Paul MacLean will now be in charge of leading the Senators back to the promised land. Preaching speed and hard work, MacLean hopes to develop the Sens into a face-paced, pressure team.
Be sure to check out what Tony Mendes has to say about the Senators and their shot at making the playoffs and winning the cup this season over at Senshot.
