The warning signs suggest that something is about to explode on the slumping Ottawa Senators.

The team that reached the Stanley Cup final in 2007 is 12th in the NHL Eastern Conference at 13-19-6 and has just one victory in its last seven games.

Speculation that coach Craig Hartsburg and/or general manager Bryan Murray will be fired has risen to a fever pitch since the world junior championship in Ottawa -- which partly cloaked the NHL's club's recent woes -- ended Monday.

On Wednesday, Le Journal de Montreal joined the Ottawa newspapers and other media outlets in suggesting that Pat Quinn, who led the Canadian juniors to gold, would take over as coach and that Bob Nicholson, president of Hockey Canada, would become the new GM.

Much was made of a big hug the Senators' unpredictable owner Eugene Melnyk gave the 65-year-old Quinn at the bench after Canada's 8-1 thrashing of the Czech Republic at the world juniors, where all three men spent the last few weeks.
