Ottawa Senators 2014-2015 Outlook
The Senators were a disappointment last year, never really contending for a playoff spot despite being a popular preseason pick in the Atlantic. That almost cost Paul MacLean his job; the former Jack Adams winner was rumored to be on the chopping block until a late-season win streak. On paper, they’ll be even worse this year without Spezza, so the playoffs would seem like a long shot.
That said, last year’s big problem was goaltending, as both Anderson and Lehner posted their worst save percentages in years. You’d have to think at least one guy bounces back this year, and MacLean has had all summer to figure out what went wrong defensively and make the necessary adjustments. They still have the league’s best offensive defenseman in Erik Karlsson, Kyle Turris looks ready to step into a full-time first-line center role, and Mika Zibanejad seems poised for a breakout. All that could be enough to at least keep them in the race, and owner Eugene Melnyk has indicated that there could be money available if they need a boost later in the season.
The Ottawa Senators franchise was originally founded in 1883. The early franchise had a storied history winning 11 Stanley Cups from 1917 through 1934. Ottawa real estate developer Bruce Firestone campaigned to have another NHL franchise awarded to the city, and in 1990 his campaigning paid off as the NHL issued a franchise to the city of Ottawa. The new Ottawa Senators franchise began play during the 1992-1993 NHL season. The Ottawa Senators finished last each of its first 4 seasons in the NHL, but it has been one of the more consistent teams the last 10 years. The Ottawa Senators have reached post-season play in each of the last 10 NHL seasons. The Ottawa Senators won the Presidents’ Trophy in 2003 and the Prince of Wales Trophy in 2007. Following the 2006-2007 NHL season, the Ottawa Senators advanced to their first ever Stanley Cup Finals in 2007.
The Ottawa Senators have retired the following players’ numbers: Frank Finnigan’s #8 (retired on October 8, 1992); and Wayne Gretzky’s #99 (retired league-wide by the NHL on February 6, 2000).
