I suspect Lombardi's availability doomed Timmy. If Murray had better lottery ball skills he'd probably still have the job but when you've got a guy on the market who has turned a rebuilding team into a multiple Cup winner, it's hard to not want to go with the proven winner.

Le Droit's Sens reporter says that there is too much bad blood with Dorion for Timmy to come back to Ottawa.

I just don't see how you bring another guy in that was a GM and wants to be a GM. Doesn't really make sense. I'd like to see Randy Lee given the Cyril Leeder treatment and booted to the curb, but Tim doesn't seem like the guy that likes to answer to anyone and play the role of assistant. Which is maybe part of why he's unemployed today.

Would we want Alfredsson as the GM of this club someday? No doubt he should and will continue to be involved in the organization but the growing trend around the league now is former players getting involved in higher management positions. Boston, Vancouver and now LA. It's seemed to back fire a bit in Boston with Neely and the big boys, and I still wonder if Trevor Linden has a fucking clue about what he's doing.

Next thing you know we will have Chris Neil as the next senior advisor of hockey operations. :stare:

While I think Alfie will be a fine front office guy, I prefer that the GM comes from a scouting background.

I wonder about so many players who were involved in getting the 2005 lockout resolved being rewarded with high level executive positions in the NHL. Was there a bit of quid pro quo going on back in the day?

The Sabres also fired Director of Amateur Scouting Greg Royce and Director of Pro Scouting Rob Murphy, both former scouts that Tim Murray took from Ottawa.

I think Dorion meant to say, he's optimistic because 'We're "still" a team'... And somehow he's still got a job.

Nothing really to complain about aside from losing the contents of the fridge and freezer. We are in college ward and still haven’t got power back yet. Just glad it’s not winter and that nobody was killed.

Pretty much perfect weather for recovering from a tornado. Not so hot you need AC. Not so cold you need heat. Sunny so you can cook outside.

Melnyk is pandering to every sens fan now by saying the Leafs suck. While I enjoy the sentiment, that's pretty low...

For those of you not in Ottawa or have given up following the Senators this season, Melnyk is trying to do a media blitz for his new concussion diagnosis company. So far he has done interviews with the FAN590 and CFRA (he won't talk to the TEAM1200). It's been going better than I expected, some highlights:

It's definitely a good sign when the league feels the need to get involved in a team hiring an executive.

I was a Sens fan back when a young Gene Melnyk was watching Leafs highlights on Jim Tatti's Sportsline and I have the fucking ticket stubs to prove it.

Fuck that guy.

Friedman says that Francis, Linden, Lombardi, Nieuwendyk, and Yzerman were all approached about the President job. I let you guess their unanimous answer.

Friedman said last week that league executives were involved in the search and tonight Brian Burke said an executive from "another team" is also helping the Senators run the search. So I'm guess that it is the league approaching potential candidates? Unless Melnyk has gone on another bender rogue, which is always a real possibility.

Suddenly it's not as big of one. Sometimes the 16th overall pick actually turns out better than the 4th overall pick. At least now we can suck with purpose.

The trade was one disaster in a string of several, but at least players like Dach, Cozens and Byram are roughly equivalent to Brady, so the decision to hold last year's pick is safe. A range of possible outcomes, but we were spared the humiliation of Hughes or Kaako going to Colorado.

Of course, in the weird world of the Senators, imagine if we'd had this pick, finished last and dropped to fourth? Last year we dropped second to fourth - although Svech vs. Brady looks more like a toss-up now than it did at the time. The drop from Kaako/Hughes to the next tier is greater this time around.

My favourite part of Bettman's recent media scrum is how I'm left here hoping to outlive Melnyk one day at a time.

Truly this is what ultimate sports fanhood must feel like.

The Senators new Chief Financial Officer is Brian Crombie. He was the CFO for Biovail from 2000 to 2004. He did such a good job at Biovail that the Ontario Security Commission fined him $300,000 and banned him from serving as an officer or director in a public company for 8 years.

Also Crombie might be racist.
