Can the Sens forget Cup debacle? Star hockey columnist Damien Cox tackles these and other scattershot questions about the coming season…

WILL OTTAWA BOUNCE BACK FROM STANLEY CUP FINAL PRATFALL?

Young stars Dany Heatley and Jason Spezza were so bad in the Cup final that the effects could linger. The Sens, however, have lots of depth, and if Wade Redden can bounce back and regain all-star form, Ottawa should be fine. The coaching change to John Paddock is no small factor after Bryan Murray did a bang-up job last season.

IS PHILLY REALLY BACK?

Providing Martin Biron is truly a No. 1 goalie, the answer is yes. GM Paul Holmgren has surprised the hockey world with his aggressive and sharp moves, from adding Scott Hartnell and Kimmo Timonen to signing Daniel Briere to adding youth in Ryan Parent, Joffrey Lupul and Scottie Upshall, not to mention top pick James Van Riemsdyk. Key to success? Whether Mike Richards and Jeff Carter can re-establish themselves as rising young stars.
