    People still saying Johnny should've tanked and missed the playoffs? What a joke, you guys don't understand that any respectable teams goal is to make the playoffs. What's the point of being an NHL team if you're just going to tank out of a playoff spot?

    Johnny's team beating New York really shows why even if you're an underdog, making the playoffs can open a world if possibilities.

    Stick with this team baby, forget zod. Crosby and the pens are going down!!!! Stone and Karlsson will lead the Sens past this team with Lehner being a beast! The Sens are playing angry because all the analysts believe we should have tanked. I got a good feeling about this run Johnny! Lord Stanley could be seeing a summer in Ottawa soon.

    Johnny, this is the truth about the majority of your analysts. They are growing impatience with the previous pace of the development of this team. Your team's unbelievable sweep of the New York Rangers has silence only a portion of these doubts. The truth is your Yzerman style of managing will not work in a classic hockey city like Ottawa. Your inactivity during the Trade Deadline will be evident of the Ottawa Senators fall in the 2017 season. Tanking is not something that you needed but just like the hawks getting vermette, you needed to improve the teams's fine points. Your decision-making has made the unfortunate difference between a parade in the downtown area and a quiet airplane home from Pittsburgh in Game 5.

    But for all prayers on Don Cherry's ass, GO SENS!

    He did do what's best for the team, they just swept :nyr, the team was the BEST defensive team during the regular season and remember defense wins championships so the team does NOT need a re build

    Johnny did good but tbh he should trade wingels in the offseason. He's not great and he can pick someone who is maybe a bit better than him in free agency and than have a strong top 6

    Say what you want about that sweep, but it does not change the fact that your top 6 must be fixed. With goalscoring like that, winning the cup will be nearly impossible. (Unless you reload the save file like 100 times...)

    E: Didn't have time to watch the whole video, so here comes the playoff advice. Swap Ryan and Stone. Might aswell try to break up the first line since it plays like s**t. Or Hoffman and Hall, it shouldn't affect your defense much since they aren't defensive at all. Other than that, no reason to do anything else.

    Top 6 trade Hoffman for Boone Jenner.
    Hoffman will be 28 by the time he's finished the 17-18 season AND most likely with no more growth in him.

    Trade Hoffman for Boone Jenner
    2nd Line pairing Hall-Zibanejad-Jenner

    Hall is 26
    Ziby is 25
    Jenner is 25
    ( At the end of the season in the GM mode of course. )

    Johnny trade Hoffman for Boone Jenner in the offseason

    Here's why:

    Hoffman will be 28 by the time he's finished the 17-18 season AND most likely with no more growth in him.

    Trade Hoffman for Boone Jenner
    2nd Line pairing Hall-Zibanejad-Jenner

    Hall is 26
    Ziby is 25
    Jenner is 25
    ( At the end of the season in the GM mode of course. )

    All three of them have SO MUCH growth in them left.

    Or if you move Hall to the first line put stone in hall's place and stone will be 26 too. STILL A LOT OF GROWING TO DO.

    Trust me, take that into consideration.

    Defense does win games, but you also need guys scoring. There are lucky bounces that the right defense can have nothing to help the puck from not going into the net. At that time, you need the offense of your team to stand up and score goals.
    Like I said with the last video and I will say again, this team needs to do something big this season for big changes not to happen during the Draft or free agency. Just because you swept the rangers, doesn't mean you don't have work cut out for you. Don't get the ego coming to you because of that sweep, make smart decisions as if you would have had to fight for that win against the Rangers.
