I was talking to a buddy recently about how at least the Senators had that Ruzkowski guy and he seemed competent. Lol. Should have known he wasn't sticking around.

I can't imagine this is surprising to anyone.

Elliotte Friedman wrote:The president of hockey operations search has been humbling for Eugene Melnyk. Not only was he rejected by the top candidates, but he couldn’t even get a meeting with them. The latest moves on the business side indicates the organization is still below its season-ticket and corporate-sales targets, although the fact Nic Ruszkowski is staying on through the end of his contract indicates this change isn’t as nasty as some of the previous ones.


Also, some coaching rumours.

Elliotte Friedman wrote:Ottawa’s list includes Dallas assistant Rick Bowness, incumbent Marc Crawford, NCAA Providence’s Nate Leaman, AHL Belleville bench boss Troy Mann, [Jacques] Martin and Toronto assistant DJ Smith. GM Pierre Dorion will pare down this group over the next couple of weeks.

I wasn't expecting a top coach to accept coming to Ottawa, but I did think Marc Crawford wasn't going to be the best option... :why:

The idea of bringing Rick Bowness back for another 3.5 seasons as the last-place laughing-stock of the league is beautiful, just beautiful.

Not a surprise, but an embarrasment to the organization because it contradicts the narrative they have been pushing to season ticket holders.



That Senators' person was probably Ruszkowski because he called a disgruntled season holder and said the same thing: https://old.reddit.com/r/OttawaSenators/comments/b2j8uo/so_nic_ruszkowski_called_me/

Spezza says he's open to returning to Ottawa. We're one of the few teams that would be crappy enough to give him a regular roster spot.

I wouldn't mind it, but he's not exactly the ideal type of a hard-working veteran to set an example for young players.

It just seems it's been a turbulent few years for Ottawa and its dedicated fan base. The waters have been violent and choppy, and the ship that has teetered and tippled for so long is now limping back, looking for the quiet solace only the calming shores of its home harbour can bring. And on the deck of that ship, staring straight ahead into the salted air, is none other than Captain Patrick Roy.

I've always thought he was a calming influence if nothing else.

Careful now, most Sens fans know Brad Marsh personally from his days tending bar at Marshy's.

I only met him once or twice. He looked "like a man," as that beloved racist caricature Mrs. Swan used to say.

DJ Smith eh? He won a couple memorial cups as an assistant, and seems to be able to coach young guys. I'd have preferred Martin, but at least they didnt hire Crawford. Roy would have sold more tickets of course

The best candidate for the job is also the cheapest ... again. It's amazing how often that happens when Ottawa needs to hire someone. I guess the Senators are just a lucky organization.

The thing with hiring Roy is.. it would have essentially meant firing Dorion.

And you can just imagine Roy (who doesn't take lip from anyone) nailing the entire management and ownership group in the media if ever unhappy and given a chance.

So... yeah.

Sorry this didn't materialize for youz guys.

I drafted a guy named Norris in NHL 09 once. Projected to be a pretty decent power forward. Turned out to be shit. Never even dressed him for a game.

Can't have too many goalies IMO, but yeah they might have too many G's.

Craig Anderson is most certainly traded at the deadline as I would both pick him up if I was a playoff team GM and also trade him if I was in charge of Ottawa personnel.

The chance of Joey Daccord turning into Matt O'Conner and disappearing forever in 3 years is very high. So yeah, keep a lot of goalies, but I'm sure they have a plan.

It is nice to see an actual signing and one that does seem like an overpay possibly? Feels nice to be on that side of it instead of another guy walking or getting low-balled. I trust in Giroux and what he sees in goalies.

I guess Condon is 100% gone. I don't mind the move, just concerned about playing time.

Dep Chart:
Anderson
Nilson
Condon
Gustavsson
Hogberg
D'accord

It is a good problem to have I guess

Yeah I chuckled at that.

If I'm Karlsson I might really consider signing on Long Island to play for Barry Trotz and alongside Barzal. They should have lots of cap space still. Pretty short direct flight from Laguardia to Ottawa as well, if that's really a consideration.

Dunno if the Islanders are even in the mix (I hear they are mainly shopping for a forward), but I think it would be a great fit.
