Well that was ugly

- March 5th, 2012

TAMPA _ Nice bus ride over from Sunrise Sunday night.
My good friend Jason York was with us on the bus. The reps from the other newspapers were aboard as well. It took three hours. We went through Alligator Alley. Didn’t see any. Too dark..
The Senators jumped on their plane to head to Eugene Melnyk’s horse farm in nearby Ocala. They’ll spend the day enjoying the Sunshine. He usually sets up a little fun horse race.
You could say the Senators got plenty of rest Sunday night.
To me, they didn’t look hungry.
The Panthers needed that win. So did the Senators but they sure didn’t look like it.
I’m not sure what to make of the scratching of Zack Smith.
I’d rather have Smith in the lineup than Bobby Butler but that’s me.
Not sure what Butler is bringing these days. If anything at all.
Smith works hard. As much as Paul MacLean wants to say it’s not a wakeup call, it’s a wakeup call. The guy who needs a wakeup call is Butler. No question about it. He doesn’t score. Doesn’t do a whole lot.
Well. I’m going to focus on my other writing.
The Senators had better back on track.
You don’t want to struggle going into the playoffs.
