Ottawa went out with a whimper yet again, scoring five goals in four games to be swept by Pittsburgh.

Daniel Alfredsson, Dany Heatley & Jason Spezza combined for two points in the four games.

Ottawa will have a new head coach in October, but entirely possible that they will also have a new GM.

One of the most rumoured names heading to Ottawa, specifically behind the bench, is Pat Quinn.

Either way, heads should roll in Ottawa. That team is in serious need of a culture change.

They interviewd Melnyk after the second period and said the Murray will be back next year. They just fired Muckler last year so I think he sticks around for a least one more year.

alfredson (sp?) w/ the MCL tear? They said it in coaches corner when he was interviewed.

Yes in fact it was a 3rd degree MCL tear. Unfortunately he was also one of their best players the last two games.

According to comments from his agent on the fourth period, there was more than one team that were talking with Vanek...this could have any number of teams and I think fans need to start to expect this going forward.

In Topic: John Muckler fired?

17 June 2007 - 08:23 AM

I was shocked when I read this article this morning. I had heard that Muckler may step aside and be a consultant with the team and Murray would move up to the GM position. I know the team doesn't want to lose Murray to the free market and that might have something to do with it. Muckler has been criticized for not getting some big name players at the trade deadline, but historically those deals haven't really worked out for the team (i.e. Bondra, Arnason). But I never expected him to get fired.

Here is a link to another article that indicates that maybe he wasn't fired but asked to work with the team in another capacity:

If he was fired maybe it was because they wanted to change things now rather than wait out one more year on his contract. Still really bizarre.

Besides Pronger and Geztlaff (really his entire line at times) are the players that seem to be into cheapshotting. The series overall has been very entertaining. The Ducks are playing physical which has been fun to watch besides the cheap stuff. Neil was a pain in the ass last night for Ottawa and got the Ducks off their game a little... you gotta' love that too. For me it all comes back to not being afraid to send someone out to let Pronger and Getzlaff know they won't be running around hitting our guys. There is still a place for that and there always should be or people like them will get away with this crap all the time.

How about adding Correy Perry and Brad May to your list...May gave a slew foot near the end of the game.

I wouldn't necessiarly say they are a dirty team but they do use illegal tactics, not hard to see given they have the most penalties. The first two games were no different than last night, but the Ottawa players weren't trying to skate through it all the first two games and didn't really fight through it. But last night they were skating and that's why the illegal tatics (hooking, obstruction, interference) showed up more.

I think the suspension will hurt them more than it did against the Red Wings. Ottawa will be at home and I think they will try and not let up...it helps that the media in Canada basically don't think Ottawa can win the series so they are using that to help them too.

In Topic: Pronger at it again: elbow to McAmmond's head

last time i checked, there is no penalty for a hit to the head. thanks.

Yes there is when you use your elbow to hit someone in the head there is a penalty usually called. Suspensions based on elbows to head have been handed out before, and given the history he won't get a pass again, probably only one game but I don't think he will get nothing...for those defending based on height...get a grip, Ottawa had Chara and he never got suspended for elbows to the head, in fact the only suspension he got was for fighting in the last two minutes of a game.
