Summer with the Senators

by Chet Sellers

One of the great things about starting a blog is that you’re pretty much an accredited member of the media right away, with all the status, access, and sodium intake of the traditional outlets. So when the Senators organization called and asked if I was interested in attending locker clean-out day, my answer was an unqualified yes. And as a fresh voice in the staid world of hockey journalism, I intended to ask the bold question others wouldn’t, namely, “what are you doing this summer?”

But anyone can report the news. This is new-new-new media, so we’re going to quiz the news. I’ll give you a list of players and a list of quotes, and you can match them up! But don’t worry, the answers are at the bottom!

C) Daniel Alfredsson
D) Marc Methot
E) Guillaume Latendresse

2) “I hope to collect more toes than I lose.”
