    Bryan Murray steps down as Senators’ GM, Pierre Dorion named his successor

    At a Sunday morning press conference, Senators GM Bryan Murray announced that he is officially stepping down from his post as the team’s architect, and assistant GM and director of player personnel Pierre Dorion will now assume the role as Ottawa’s GM.
    Even with Murray stepping out of the spotlight as the team’s GM, a post he has held for the past nine seasons, he will remain on as a senior advisor with the Senators. Murray, 73, was diagnosed with Stage 4 colon cancer in July 2014, but remained the Senators’ GM since the diagnosis. However, it was understood that Murray was operating on a season-to-season basis as the team’s GM.
    The change in GMs was the only major news to come out of the press conference, but that doesn’t mean Dorion doesn’t have his work cut out for him. There are rumblings that coach Dave Cameron could be axed following a season in which the Senators missed the post-season by nine points and finished 19th in the league with a 38-35-9 record.
    “A decision on the coaching, Dave and the other coaches, will follow,” Dorion said. “I think today’s more about the changes that are happening to the management structure, more about Bryan than anyone else today. In the upcoming weeks, we’ll have a chance to discuss (the coaching staff).”

      Ottawa Senators fire coach Dave Cameron, seriously need to get it right this time The Ottawa Senators have fired coach Dave Cameron and assistants Andre Tourigny and Rick Wamsley, while another coach, Jason Smith, has been offered a different role in the organization.
      With Pierre Dorion officially taking over as GM for the ailing Bryan Murray, this was a move that makes sense. But boy, it better be the last coaching change this franchise makes for a while.
      Under Murray, the Senators had six different coaches (including Murray) since he took over as GM in 2007-08. Some of it was certainly results-oriented and in the case of Jack Adams winner Paul MacLean, it sounded as though the coach may have let success get to his head, losing the room in the process (this is how I picture it).
      Did Cameron and staff deserve to get the axe? Well, Ottawa had one of the worst power plays in the league, despite having offensive defenseman extraordinaire Erik Karlsson in the lineup for all 82 games. The penalty-kill was even worse, finishing second-last in the NHL. So that didn’t help.
      Goaltending wasn’t great and no team gave up as many shots per game. Also, only three teams shot less than the Senators. Overall compete level wasn’t too hot, according to center Curtis Lazar.

          Ex-Sens coach Cameron fights back after Melnyk’s comments

          OTTAWA — Dave Cameron fought back tears, and fought back against Eugene Melnyk’s stinging criticism.

          Cameron met with Ottawa reporters one final time Thursday morning after being fired as head coach of the Senators on Tuesday. He took issue with Melnyk’s public airing of grievances as the team sputtered out of playoff contention.

          Cameron’s dismissal seemed imminent following Melnyk’s critical comments March 22. The Senators owner told reporters “nobody is safe” and called Cameron’s decision to start rookie Matt O’Connor in the home opener “stupidity.”

          “It was hurtful and I didn’t think there was any need of it,” Cameron said. “I felt like I was fired for three weeks. Every day.”

            Guy Boucher to coach the Sens.

            Too bad I was kind of hoping we might hire him if we let go of Jack.
