PostSubject: REPORT: PADDOCK BLAMES GM MURRAY FOR SENATORS' STRUGGLES   Thu Feb 12, 2009 11:38 am

TSN.CA STAFF

Almost one year has passed since John Paddock was fired as head coach of the Ottawa Senators, but he has an opinion on who is most to blame for the team's continuing struggles.

According to the Camden Courier-Post, Paddock feels general manager Bryan Murray should be in the crosshairs if Senators owner Eugene Melnyk hands out any more pink slips.

"I think now he's next in line," Paddock told the Courier-Post. "We were 14 games over .500 when I was fired. They're seven under now. Somebody needs to take responsibility for that. Whether the coaches he hired and fired were good or not, they're his players and they're either not playing good or can't play, one or the other."

But Paddock, who is currently the head coach of the AHL's Philadelphia Phantoms, doesn't think coaching is the issue in the nation's capital.

"The players are not very good, that's the problem," Paddock told the Courier-Post.

Earlier this month, Murray fired Craig Hartsburg 48 games into the season after the Senators struggled to a record of 17-24-7. Cory Clouston was promoted from the team's AHL affilaite in Binghamton and given the reigns for the remainder of the season.

[i]Murray has done a lot of great things for the team. and getting rid of Paddock was one of them. I agree, he's just jealous, I don't think Murray is the problem at all. He has done a lot for the team and many of the moves he took, I believe, were the right ones. Things are turning around now, and did at that time a bit as well so it clearly wasn't Murray that was the issue.

The team has won a couple of games and they are turning it around?? Where have you been for last 4 months. Not to rip any sens fans here but lets see what the team can do for another couple of weeks before you say they have turned it around. On the paddock note, he was too buddie buddie with the guys and let them do whatever they wanted. Yes murray has done alot for this team, but now he should move on. Right now this is the worst season ottawa has had since inauguration in 92-93. Since they made the cup final, I swear the team decided that's it and stopped playing like they could play. I still say rebuild and start over, and that starts with a new GM.
