Sens are the worst run organization in the NHL, if they haven't learned that firing a coach every time there's a problem isn't the solution by now, they'll never get it. Its the PLAYERS and your **** GM.

Good advice GB but it's too late. Murray and Clouston should take two weeks off and then quit.

Remind you of anybody?

No sense of urgency there.

"Owner: Sens coach, GM safe this season"

This is usually the prelude to the kiss of death but, in Melnik's case ...?

Somebody needs to do Clouston a favor and put him out of his misery. It's painful to watch the poor guy.

The dreaded 'vote of confidence' from the owner. I give them two weeks and 2-3 more ugly losses before they get the ax.

Ok Canuck we got it! For the 781st time this year, Bryan has a lisp....funny stuff. The same funny when Mork said Nanu Nanu 12 times an episode, I'm sure nobody got tired of that either.

Yey! A Leafs fun's got it! I wish Melnyk would get it too. His GM sucks and ... he's abusing his coach.
