The National Post's Mark Spector was just on the radio here in Toronto and made a good point about the house cleaning the Senators had yesterday.
As in, there was another body moved out that no one's paid any attention to:
Ottawa assistant coach Ron Low also was fired yesterday.Low was the team's goaltending coach for three years until this summer, when he was moved into the assistant's role. He was a netminder for 11 years in the NHL during his playing days.
From the Edmonton Journal on Dec. 30:
Emery wanted his own guy, Eli Wilson, to tutor him, and listened more to Wilson than Low. Now, Wilson is the Sens' goalie coach.And even after the train wreck in the Senators crease this season, Wilson isn't going anywhere.
Ray Emery's getting an awful lot of say in who the organization's coaches are, and you wonder how Martin Gerber feels about being tutored by the other 'tender's guy.
And was Low moved out because of his dealings with the goaltender?
UPDATE Jim Kelley blames the owner for the mess in Ottawa.
