Who will be Sens new coach?
« on: April 15, 2016, 04:08:25 PM »
Long time no see

First of all I have to say although we all knew it was coming down to firing Cameron, Melnyks comment 3 weeks prior was unnecessary and quite harsh. I liked Cameron but he just made too many weird moves/decisions.

I personally think Randy Carlisle would be a great coach. He has the experience and also Lord Stanley under his belt. What do you guys think?

History shows that Jacques made the most out of a lineup that didn't have a whole lot.

Yeo, Crawford, Boucher, and whoever gets fired in the next couple of weeks. The Sens have made it pretty clear it's not going to be a rookie coach this time around.

If the ducks gets knocked off in the first round I'd say Bruce Boudreau (if he gets fired) would be an excellent candidate!
Maybe go after "Iron Mike" Keenan?  :)  As MH says it wont be any rookie coach, thank goodness.
Oh and also did you guys read the article about how Sens should go after Stamkos should he become UFA?

Dream on I say. I am sure Ottawa is not on his list for sure.

I heard that Yeo already had a second interview just before Boudreau got fired.  And apparently Boudreau's daughter, who lives in Ottawa, tweeted something about Boudreau coming to Ottawa, but that could just mean that he's coming to visit his daughter.
There are good coaches and there are bad coaches, the real question is "Do you want this person to be a role model to your kids for the next 6 months".  That's the question you have to ask yourself.

I hope she means he's coming to Ottawa as Coach for the Senators. Would be totally awesome!!!

Bob Hartley now available as well. Another Ottawa-area guy.

Thanks, but no thanks! I truly believe Boudreau would be the right man for the job. Lets get him signed today  :ccclapping: :ccclapping:

Well Guy Boucher it is. I can't help but feel this was another budget decision. The best coach out there is someone who hasn't coached in the NHL in what, 2 or 3 years? Yikes.

Unreal I am so fed up with Melnyk, He's a big fat cheapskate and always has been. Sens will never win the cup with him as an owner.
Oh well lets see where we'll end up next year maybe 9 or 10th?
Ugghhhh....

Also Guy Boucher doesn't need another coaching job right now that GUY needs Anger management. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JBUUPN_eaMU&feature=share

At least nice to know Marc Crawford will join as assistant coach :) I've always liked him as a coach.
