TSN: Paddock on the outs
I've been hearing rumblings of discontent with Senators coach John Paddock for months now out of Ottawa, and TSN's reporter Brent Wallace just said on air that he is on the way out the door.
GM Bryan Murray, who coached this team to the Stanley Cup finals last season, would likely take over behind the bench.
Darren Dreger said rumours were flying last night after an ugly 5-0 loss to the Leafs that Paddock could be fired, something that is likely music to the ears of a lot of Senators fans who have been calling for his head since a seven-game winless streak that ended in early December.
Let's just say there's no shortage of "fire Paddock" matches on Google.
Ottawa's 11-12-2 since Jan. 1. Toronto's gone 12-12-1, Tampa Bay is 10-9-4 and the Kings are 12-10-2 over that same stretch.
UPDATE The best answer so far in the "other" category: "I support the Sens having incompetent coaching."
