These are the guys who lost to the Anaheim Ducks. Take a wild guess.
The Ottawa "We All Share Bunkbeds" Senators (also known as the "Heimlich 23" for their outstanding playoff performances) are a professional hockey team based in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. They play in the National Hockey League (NHL) at Don Cherry Memorial Auditorium. Based on the chanting of the crowds during home games, the organization is known locally as the "Sleafs" - as in "Go Sleafs, Go!" The team is commonly known as the Sens, which is a derivative of Bunsen Burner. The modern senators were founded December 12, 1990, the very same day that Hitler did not invade Poland. This is not a coincidence.
It should also be noted that their GM has a ridiculoushly ridiculous lisp. It is so ridiculous that even Habs fans laugh, and that's fucking amazing since the supply of Labbat 50 and Players Cigarettes ran out in Quebec. What's also amazing is that French Canadians would laugh at someone because of the way they talk...Oh the ironing!
Since their inception into the league, they have made Ottawa a slightly less oppressive place to reside. The Senators also hold the distinction of being the first team ever to conquer the European continent over 3000 years ago.
Before current coach Paul "Stalin Mustache" MacLean and previous coach Cory "doesn't have a" Clouston a coach by the name of Jock Martin, who was some kind of troll or something, led this team to consistent under-achiever status in the playoffs. Some have attributed this choking to the curse of Humphrey Dustmite, although no one is really sure who Humphrey Dustmite actually is. While working the bench, Mr. Martin was usually kitten huffing; evidence of this is exemplified by when he:
Decided to make Radek Bonk the team's number one centre.
Upset Humphrey Dustmite so badly that he cursed the team for all of eternity.
Refused to hire an exorcist to remove said curse.
Made the team play so defensively the Berlin Wall seemed aggresive.
The reason for the Senators' unsuccessful playoff runs were attributed to the fact that Daniel Alfredsson was afraid of ice - which, for you Americans out there, is the surface hockey is played on. It should be noted that their goaltender during this period, one Pat Lalime, was known to let in a stinker here and there. More rubber slipped through his legs then your mom's vagina. However, in 2007 the captain did lead his team to the final round of the Stanley Cup playoffs, known as "Golf season" in Toronto. In 2010, after another shitty season, the team relocated to the Kontinental Hockey League, as they were too pussy to play in the NHL. The team's status was demoted to one-eighth-semi-half-professional. They were also reunited with former goltender "Sugar Ray" Emery, who is now an alcoholic and drug addict. Ottawa went winless in their first season in Russia. The lowpoint of the year was losing to a team of six year old orphans. Ottawa hopes to be more competitive in future seasons.
The original Ottawa Senators
Founded in 1893 and folded in 1934, these Ottawa Senators (or the Silver Seven) claimed 9 Stanley Cups and haven't won jack shit since 1927. One of these wins provided the weirdest piece of hockey history when one player kicked Lord Stanley's Cup into a canal while under the influence of crystal meth. He obtained this while using a time machine built by Andrew Lloyd Webber.
In Ottawa, "we" is French for "yes"
"Sugar Ray" Emery
After Dominik "the Dominator" Hasek was dealt to the Red Wings, the Sens needed a new #1 goalie. So John Muckler was undecided on the still unproven Martin Gerber. He failed at his job, and Ottawa's backup goalie Ray Emery was thrust into the #1 spot. Sugar Ray lead his team to fourth place finish in the Eastern Conference, by posting stellar performance after stellar performance after the All-Star-Break, all the way into the playoffs. He has bailed his team out on multiple occasions, which is how he received his new nickname "Razor". He has also been known to kick the living shit out of anything that comes close to him, with the possible exception of Andrew Peters, the enforcer of the Buffalo Sabres, who is best known for absolutely nothing.After taking his team to the Stanley Cup Finals, Razor's play dropped off suddenly, although no one knows why. Martin "Darth" Gerber has replaced him as starting goalie. In conclusion, Ottawa is a great well rounded team
Update: Ray "Razor" Emery is no longer part of the Senators organization, he has been bought out. Soon after, he played for a russian hockey club, which is suggested to be coached by a slovakian with great experience, along with Rasputen Holger as general manager. Not much is known about the owner, some say he is a decrepit old dwarf, presumably one of the eight in Snow White. Ray now plays for the Philadelphia Flyers, where he can beat the shit out of anyone and not look out of place.
Because his tail was pinned the closest, Alexandre Daigle won the right to be selected first overall in the 1993 NHL entry draft. Judges were particularly impressed by Daigle's showing in the swimsuit competition, though he was docked points in the question round for responding "Nurse" when asked "What would you like to be when you grow up?". (The correct answer was hockey player). Alexandre Daigle (or "Alexandre Daigle" as his friends would call him) is best known for getting to plow Pamela Anderson, and for getting the term "abortion on skates" added to Webster's Dictionary.
He is also known for famously saying that he was glad he was drafted first overall, because "nobody remembers the guy who goes 2nd", which to his dismay, turned out to be Chris Pronger. He was promptly raped.
Though well intentioned, this new "Nation Symbol for Choking" campaign led to countless deaths and several class action lawsuits. Experts would later point to this campaign as the beginning of the end for the Canadian Medial Association, and the model portraying the old symbol would eventually resign in disgrace.
Coming back to the NHL in 1992 after spending the last 58 years in a Viet-Cong prison camp.
Bringing sexy back to the NHL. Also bringing sexy back to Justin Timberlake who had lost his sexy in a rousing game of rock-paper-scissors.
Never using the words "die" or "dice" or "slice".

Getting eliminated from the Stanley Cup finals by the Ducks but making up for it by being hung like mules.
