Let me preface this write-up by acknowledging that the Senators probably didn’t head into the season planning for a contingency wherein ten players went into COVID protocol at once, and that right now it feels rather unfair to do any sort of critical assessment as to why the Sens are the way they are. That aside, every team deals with injury and illness this team looks draft lottery-bound once again, and more and more people are asking the question: Are the Sens really in session? Probably not. So what’s going on?
I have a theory that there may be a lot of puck luck involved.
