Interesting. Second place in the East might yet come down to the final game, Hamilton at Montreal. Hamilton has been better on the road this season, so if they travel for the Semi-Final, they have a good chance.
Montreal certainly dominated Ottawa in today’s game - but that was no surprise really. I didn’t think the Als played all that well, despite the good play of Philpot and Fletcher. I believe they will finish in second spot as a result of today’s game - but they will have more than they can handle when they have to play Hamilton in the playoffs. Today’s game was pretty boring.
A barn burner it wasn’t, but it was special to me for the reason I thought I had missed all the games this weekend. Getting home Sunday evening & finding out there was still a game to be played was sweet. I’ll take it, warts & all.
Our Team in the Nations Capital is putrid, again this year in every aspect, From the G.M. and coaching staff and starting to question if Ownership gives a crap. Long time fans are going to start checking out if they can’t even have a 500 season. Its just not fun watching this teams Ground Hog Day Operation.
It’s rather hard to believe that after going to 3 Cups in your first 5 years of existence and actually winning it all in only your 3rd year that you have fallen so far in the last 4 years after having all that initial success .
Oh believe me being a Cats fan I know all about Desjardins and his destructive ways in destroying a franchise firsthand .
While he was here he made some of the most idiotic personnel moves thru insane trades and releases of players that absolutely gutted the team from top to bottom . Believe me there was not a fan of the Cats that was not happy when the team finally fired his inept ass and kicked him to the curb.
