Inside Look At Ottawa Senators

This is source I found from another site, main source you can find in last paragraph

It's easy to root for the Senators. An oft-overlooked franchise stuck in the shadows of big-market behemoths on either side. Its stars suffering unthinkable personal hardships, only to persevere on and off the ice. Then came the gut punch that was the death of beloved former general manager Bryan Murray this summer, two months after falling one goal shy of completing a remarkable against-the-odds run to the Stanley Cup Final. 

It's also difficult to ignore the stats.

Used to being counted out, it looks like that's going to be the case for Ottawa again this year. The Senators are projected by many to finish well off their 98 points from a season ago. Their Corsi percentage (48.2 percent) was worst among playoff teams and slightly better than the Canucks, who finished with the second-worst point total in the league. All season long, the statisticians predicted the Sens wouldn't be able to sustain success, but they did — straight through Game 7 overtime of the Eastern Conference finals.

That's where good fortune figured in.

It's feasible on paper that if everything doesn't go right, like it did last year, Ottawa could be the first since the 2011 Lightning to go from the conference finals to missing the playoffs entirely in a year's span. That team was also coached by Guy Boucher.

You know the negatives: Craig Anderson, 36, isn't getting younger. The forward group lacks a game-breaking scorer. Perennial MVP candidate Erik Karlsson is still recovering from offseason foot surgery, the result of overexertion during his superhuman playoff run. Apart from Karlsson, who lost his everyday playing partner in Marc Methot, the defense might need to ask too much of 20-year-old Thomas Chabot to save face. They're going to need to recapture some that 2016-17 magic.

The doubters are many. But as the Senators have shown, seeing is believing. 

Ottawa Senators schedule 2017-18

The Senators open the 2017-18 season at home Oct. 6 against the reigning Presidents' Trophy champion Capitals. They'll also be part of the NHL's 100th birthday festivities with an outdoor game against the Canadiens Dec. 16 at TD Place in Ottawa, dubbed the Scotiabank NHL 100 Classic. A rematch of the Eastern Conference finals arrives Nov. 16, again at home. But they play one game at home during a grueling stretch from Nov. 19-Dec. 12.

Fans in the U.S. won't see the Sens in action this year; they don't appear on NBC's national broadcast once all season.

Senators' best-case scenario is … 

Mike Hoffman and Mark Stone continue to fly under the radar as two of the NHL's best-kept secrets, each topping 60 points. Kyle Turris isn't winning the Selke any time soon but delivers career high offensive production in a contract year. Roster intact, playoff hero Jean-Gabriel Pageau and Ryan Dzingel provide needed scoring depth. It doesn't take long for top prospect Colin White to make an NHL impact, emerging as a dark horse for the Calder Trophy along with teammate Chabot. Speaking of, the young defenseman is as good as advertised, eating critical minutes on the blue line to relieve Karlsson, who recovers fully from surgery, of some of his burden. Anderson doesn't look a day over 36. The Senators continue to defy statistical logic, win the Atlantic Division and take another run at unfinished business.
