After 10 months, the Sens are finally back in action, with two games against the Leafs and three against the Jets. Why has Colin White's stock fallen? Or has it fallen at all?

038: NHL Season Begins to Take Shape, But Will COVID Allow It? Top 5 Sens Prospects; The Rift with Alfie

NHL reportedly going with 56 games. Two sides remain focused on Dec 31 camp start for non-playoff teams. Jan 3rd camp start for the rest of the league. Jan 13th start to 2020-2021 regular season. Owners tried to circle back on the deal, asking the players to defer a bigger chunk of their salaries and then also dump more money into an escrow account. Realignment will feature an all Canadian division Now that the league’s financial differences have been squared away, the fate of the new season probably rests mostly with public health officials. The big challenge for Ottawa will be getting everyone on the same page. Returning players will need a refresher course and there could be as many as 13 players who weren’t full-time members of the club last season. Two-thirds of the league’s owners must approve it and that’s the one possible internal roadblock: owners with cash flow troubles, who aren’t willing to weather this storm. Their arenas will be empty (or mostly empty) for every home game and now there’s no financial help coming from the players’ side. Sure, the NHL has an excellent TV deal, at least by its standards. But it’s not the NFL, which has TV money to burn and doesn’t need to actually sell tickets to turn a profit. On its own, the NHL’s TV arrangement simply doesn’t inject enough revenue for every owner to pay all their bills. So, there will absolutely be some teams who vote not to play this season at all. Are there more than ten teams like that? We’ll find out soon enough. NHL realignment “Thomas Chabot and Brady Tkachuk both asked if they could be part of the Belleville, which no one knows about, and that just shows how much they’re invested in the organization,” said Dorion in an interview with the Ottawa Sun Thursday. “We didn’t think we should just parachute people in, either. Both guys wanted to play for Belleville at the end of the year. “It just tells what kind of younger, character people we have up here and what could have been with Belleville.” NHL.com's Top 5 Sens prospects. Top 5 prospects. 1. Stuetzle 2. Brannstrom 3. Norris 4. Formenton 5. Sanderson Right order? Anyone missing…Logan Brown, Igor Sokolov, Shane Pinto, Lassi Thomson, Jacob Bernard-Docker, Joey Daccord, Filip Gustavsson, Vitaly Abramov, Rudolfs Balcers? The NHL is investigating selling ads on players' helmets. Daniel Alfredsson wanted to coach Team Sweden? He obviously wants to stay involved in hockey. So where are the Senators? Why won't they repair this relationship? City of Belleville extends free rent period to end of 2021 and extends deal until 2027 Sens alumni Birthdays
