Oh Captain my---OUCH!

Uhh we may want to revoke a statement in the last post about Ottawa being a fearful team after learning their captain Daniel Alfredsson and best defensive center Mike Fisher are injured and out for "weeks".

And is it just us or is the hit Alfie received last night (courtesy of Toronto's Mark Bell) remarkably similiar to the one that Sens' "tough guy" Chris Neil dished out on former Sabres captain Chris Drury?

Last year's hit is rehashed for you several times here:

For the most part Senators fans and local commentators were very vocal and steadfast in claiming the Neil hit was clean and legit. Now they're decreeing Bell's hit as dirty and with intentional malice.

Can't have it both ways.... As they say, what comes around goes around.
