Get Off My Plane

from the CP at the National Post,

The Ottawa Senators appeared to fire another salvo in their ongoing battle with the Ottawa Citizen on Friday, with the newspaper saying one of its sports reporters was denied access to the team’s charter.

The development came two days after the newspaper said it would not take down a secretly recorded video of several Senators players from an Uber vehicle in Arizona despite a legal notice insisting that leaving it online violates provincial privacy laws.

Hockey writer Ken Warren was expecting to take the team charter to cover the Senators’ game at Tampa Bay on Saturday but was denied access to the flight, Ottawa Citizen editor-in-chief Michelle Richardson said.

“I can confirm it happened this morning,” Richardson said. “For us, it doesn’t really change our fundamentals. We’re still committed to covering the Senators, both the good and the bad. Our coverage is important to our readers and to their fans and that’s not going to change.”

Time To Move Matt Duchene And Chris Wideman

from Michael Traikos of the National Post,

As a pending unrestricted free agent, he was always going to be traded sometime this season. But after a video surfaced of Duchene and several Ottawa players trashing their assistant coach during an infamous Uber ride, the Senators can no longer wait until the Feb. 25 trade deadline.

Duchene, who was traded to Ottawa at this time last season, needs to go. The same applies to Chris Wideman, who is also in the final year of his contract and was one of the more vocal players in the Uber.

Yes, it’s normal for a group of players to badmouth the coaching staff when they think no one is actually listening. It happens. And it’s healthy. But the difference here is that this was made public. Everyone saw it.

The most troubling aspect of the video had nothing to do with what Duchene or Wideman said. It was that second-year defenceman Thomas Chabot was sitting in the middle listening to all of it and chiming in with his own comments.

Video- This Can’t Be Good For The Ottawa Senators

from the Ottawa Citizen,

A number of Ottawa Senators openly joke about their penalty-killing abilities, mock one of their coaches and laugh at the ineffectiveness of special-team meetings in a candid video that was posted online.

The video is the latest bit of embarrassing news for a team that is trying to rebuild a more positive, professional culture in its dressing room, after the high-profile departures of Erik Karlsson and Mike Hoffman.

Boo Matt Duchene

from Mark Kiszla of the Denver Post,

If you love Matt Duchene, you will boo him when his skates touch the ice in Denver.

While wearing an Avalanche sweater from 2009-17, Duchene scored 178 goals and lost 348 regular-season games (not that we’re counting). The prodigal whiner returns Friday to the Pepsi Center for the first time since last November, when Dutchy got his wish and was traded to Ottawa.

“I’m sure some of our fans love him, some of them don’t,” Avs coach Jared Bednar said Thursday.

Duchene wanted out of Denver, baby. He broke up with us, remember?

And everybody in an Avalanche sweater is better off for it.

“I can’t speak for him. But for the guys in this dressing room, this team and this organization, I think we’ve taken some steps ahead,” Colorado captain Gabe Landeskog said.

If Avalanche fans miss Dutchy, they will boo him.
