Good article review[edit]

I will take a couple of days to review this so please check back. Zenlax T C S 19:23, 25 March 2008 (UTC)

GA review (see here for criteria)

This is a nice piece of work, but it still has some shortcomings with respect to the good article criteria.

  1. It is reasonably well written.
    a (prose): b (MoS):
    In the first paragraph where it states that the Ottawa Senators are the second NHL franchise to have the Ottawa Senators name, it would be sufficient if NHL, National Hockey League, be spelled out. Also, in the same section, it would be best to add a link to Stanley Cup. Another thing I notice is that the article consists of red links, if you see Wikipedia:Manual of Style (links), if there is no article created for those links, then it should be removed.
  2. It is factually accurate and verifiable.
    a (references): b (citations to reliable sources): c (OR):
  3. It is broad in its coverage.
    a (major aspects): b (focused):
  4. It follows the neutral point of view policy.
    Fair representation without bias:
  5. It is stable.
    No edit wars etc.:
  6. It is illustrated by images, where possible and appropriate.
    a (images are tagged and non-free images have fair use rationales): b (appropriate use with suitable captions):
    I notice that some of the fair use images have little detail in why the images are used in the article. Again, it would be best to add a little more information about why the image is being used.
  7. Overall:
    Pass/Fail:
    The article reads well, the only thing holding the article is if these comments can be met. Once they are completed, the article would be turned into a Good article. Good luck and if you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.

Good article pass[edit]

Image copyright problem with Image:OriginalOttawaSenators.png[edit]

The image Image:OriginalOttawaSenators.png is used in this article under a claim of fair use, but it does not have an adequate explanation for why it meets the requirements for such images when used here. In particular, for each page the image is used on, it must have an explanation linking to that page which explains why it needs to be used on that page. Please check

  • That there is a non-free use rationale on the image's description page for the use in this article.
  • That this article is linked to from the image description page.

The following images also have this problem:

Use of logo and jersey images[edit]

The logos and jersey images were considered and part of the article prior to the GA review. Please do not remove them. Discuss here first. Alaney2k (talk) 23:49, 2 December 2008 (UTC)
