Kukla's Korner Hockey

Arriving at a significant fork in the road last summer, the Senators ignored the obvious and correct route. They went left instead of right, turning to Martin Gerber when Ray Emery was the man to, at least, start this season as their No. 1 goalie. Nobody objected much at the time -- probably because the warm July sun had critics either on the golf course or in a mellow, non-hockey state of mind. But they sure deserve to be called on to the carpet for it now. The decision cost the Senators considerable cap space and ultimately the bucks needed to re-sign Zdeno Chara, who would certainly look good in the extra long No. 3 he wore while growing into one of the NHL's best defencemen. It was a mistake that could also cost them much, much more.continued
