Ugh. Make it ten straight losses. The Ottawa Senators' 2010-11 season has become unimaginably awful. In preseason, I recall scoffing at pundits who picked the Sens as low as 10th in the East. At the moment, they're a good bet for 15th place, dead last. In fact, in our online poll today, 65 per cent of you believe they'll indeed finish dead last overall in the NHL.
So all you Sens fans could use a little somethin'-somethin' right now, right? Everyone knows now that they'll not only get a great young player in the draft but quite possibly the best 18 year in the world. But there's already some pretty impressive youth on the way.
So check this video out. It's this season's highlights of David Rundblad, who has 38pts in 46 games in the Swedish elite league. Rundblad is the player they traded for at last year's draft. He looks really, really good. He has the hands of Erik Karlsson but actually plays a physical game too. Warning: Some of the body checks contained in this video will leave some Senator fans salivating. Watch it, Senator fan. Trust me. You need this.
