Ok, I'll admit the title is rather obnoxious, but the point here is that
Alexei Yashin got 5 points (2 goals & 3 assists) in the Senators inspired
come from behind 6 - 5 victory over the Capitals tonight at the very loud
Ottawa Civic Centre. Yashin was brilliant from start to finish picking up
the 1st star and the game winning goal late in the 3rd period to cap a 3
goal surge for the 2 points.

The true star of tonights game was the pathetic officiating of Faucette.
His refusal to call 3 obvious Capital infractions midway through the 3rd
brought the crowd to their feet and a constant barrage of beer cups to the
ice. After that, the crowd was more involved and the players fed off of
the energy.

Randy Sexton realized the success of teams like Florida were attributed to
the quality veteran leaders on their clubs. At the trading deadline Sexton
added the likes of Troy Murray, Dan Quinn, Steve Konroyd, Phil Bourque and
Olympian Derek Mayer. Since then this team is over .500, 4-3-1 in the last
8 games, on a 3 game unbeaten streak and a 3 game win streak at home on
consecutive Wednesday nights. Finally something to cheer about after
shelling out big bucks.

Alright maybe I'm getting a little carried away but this is the kind of
e***ment we've been waiting for. It's great having an NHL team here and
it's even better to watch them competing. Keep up the good work SENS. Oh
yes, I must mention that YASHIN IS ROOKIE OF THE YEAR, without a doubt.

You are right, I screwed up. Two friends with me also thought Yashin had 5
points. Could it have been the announcer that confused us or the rare
e***ment that left us dazed and confused (I hear an old Zeppelin tune in my
head).

I don't know what it is, the Sens seem to be scoring on every 3rd shot.
Against the Red Wings 5 goals on 15 shots and against the Caps they got 6
goals on 18 shots. WOW!!!

I'd have to admit that up to the half point of the season, it was Yashin all
the way, but now you could build a solid defence for any of the front
runners, and they would all be deserving.  I think, and I'd hate to say it,
if Yashin doesn't have a strong finish (a la last night) he will probably
miss out.  I feel that he's the most deserving myself, but I'm also from
Ottawa and a fan of the Sens.  
If Renberg wins, I will *definitely* be upset.  No offence, but he's had a
much easier go of it than the others.  
People seem to forget that Yashin was the only Rookie to make the all-star
team (yeah, yeah, he was a sub...but still there...) and *leads* his team
outright in points.  If you look at how valuable each player is to their
respective teams....you'd *have* to admit Yashin was the key for the Sens
this season...and give him Rookie honours.

Just my opinion....
Tim

and, great hockey mind that he is, it only took him two full seasons
to realize this.  Sexton should forget about playing manager and go
back to suing Paul Anka; he's about as sharp as a bag of hammers.

No - the true star of this game was Rick Tabaracci - for the Senators
that is! This was the worst display of goaltending I have ever
witnessed watching NHL hockey - if Tabaracci's 5-hole had been
slightly bigger they would have called it the Chunnel Tunnel. :-)
Yashin had a very good game and Dan Quinn still has great hands, but
this was a Tabaracci show all the way. BTW, Daigle should have spent
the season in Junior, getting more confidence - the man is afraid of
physical contact - he gives up the puck and turns away anytime someone
comes near him. They'll ruin this kid.

You're right, so far he has 3 points tonight. Did you listen to the game?
Mcllawan agot a charley horse. He might be injured, but I don't think so.

No one else likes the Senators.Why?

I can't debate the first sentence.  However, if you really believe the second
one then I have no doubt you have been merely reading the boxscores (assuming
that Lindros, Recchi, or Brind'Amour have set him up for all his points)
rather than actually watching him play.  He's a tenacous forechecker, wonderful
puckhandler, has a good shot, can really fly, loves to mix it up in the
corners, and has a little bit of a mean streak in him.  I think I'll even let
him take out my daughter (if I had one).  :-)

Actually, I'm just doing a little promo, as Yashin seems to get most of the
PT around here.  As most of us, I've not had the opportunity to extensively
see but a few of the rookies this year, which leads me to believe that
those who will cast the ballots will be in the same boat.  It has to be taken
with a grain of salt, I suppose.

Easy to say, hard to prove any validity.  Who is to say where the Flyers would
be without Renberg?  You can't punish him for playing on the same team as
Lindros and Recchi.  One could say that Yashin is getting all the pub because
he is a relatively bright star in a dark sky (nice thread, don't you think?).

If you looked very closely, you'd notice that the NHL had at least one player
from every NHL team.   Regarding the last part of the sentence, I guess what
you mean is that Yashin is the best player on an otherwise weak team, which
should be considered a plus for him because he has no support.  However, it
could be argued that Renberg is only 4th on his team in scoring and still has
a sizeable lead over Yashin in goals and points.

I guess it's the old "you say tomato, I say tomato" kind of thing.  Boy,
that phrase just doesn't work over the net like it should!   :-)

After last nights game against Boston, Renberg is ahead of Yashin by only two
points.  I wouldn't call that sizeable.  Go Yashin!

Just adding my voice to the CHORUS of adulation for our awesome rookie and
our soon-to-be-improving-even-more team.  Sexton has seen the light, oh
yes, Lord, and things are actually starting happen around here.  

Hate to admit it but Tabbarachi (?) did have a lot to do with that win but
we'll take it!  

Strong performance against Boston last night, but unfortunately gave up
the close one.

YASH FOR CALDER!!

I wouldn't consider Dan "NHL's best golfer after fuhr" "I hang out in motels
with Mario" Quinn to be a Quality veteran.  Admittedly, a veteran.
When he was in Vancouver, he didn't do much.  Sort of a golfing Tom Fergus.

Yes, but remember what we poor Senators fans have been used to. :-)

Well, I didn't say the guy *stunk*, I just said I think he had better
linemates to help him along.....cripes, even Yashin's points go up or down
depending on his linemates.....

Let's just say, IMHOpinion, and I stress opinion, that the Sens would have
