The senators had 3 players make their NHL debuts last night and it showed in the on ice product. Just so you can truly grasp the how inexperienced this team is take a look back at this stat from Silver Seven:
"Of the 18 skaters Ottawa has playing (last night), seven of them are eligible for the Calder Trophy as rookie of the year. They are Silfverberg, Zibanejad, Da Costa, Dzirzinsky, Grant, Wiercoch and Gryba. Jim O'Brien misses the cut off by 3 due to playing 28 games last year." Also remember that Borowiecki who did not play is also eligible and that Benoit is not eligible because he's 29 years old despite the fact he had zero games experience prior to this season. Yikes.
