In what can only be described as one of the most brilliant personal moves ever made the Ottawa Senators have fired GM John Muckler. Ottawa is coming off
a disappointing the franchise’s most successful season ever, where it lost to Anaheim in the Stanley Cup Finals. The move comes as yet another blow to a fan base who already have to deal with living in Ottawa. It seems to me that sports entertainment is the only field in the world where a person can be fired for doing something better than anyone else in his field. Could you imagine the head CEO of a fortune 500 company being fired after he brought the stock to an all time high?
What sort of a message does this send to the Senators Fan
s? Can it possible be conceived as a positive one? Frankly I don’t understand the move. Muckler will be replaced by the teams coach Bryan Murray (who has a hilarious speech impediment).
