I too liked MacLean, but he was forced (by the Owner) to take on Cameron as one of his assistants............the same guy the Owner wanted to be Head coach.

The writing was on the wall from the get go, and MacLean was never given 100% support from Management, it was like he was on probation once he became the Coach.

To be fair though, Maclean did not use his roster to it's full advantage, in my opinion. Bobby Ryan was never given a chance to be on the first PP unit since he became a Senator, and that too might have factored into the reasoning to let him go.

That's why he signed a 3 year deal in July 2013.

If you were handed a 3 year contract to sign, would you refuse to sign it?

Nominated for the Jack Adams twice , winning it once. Made the playoffs twice, wining one series (vs Habs) perhaps he felt he earned a new Contract.






But, after that, he lost Gonchar and Alfredsson and the next summer Spezza was traded away, setting back the re-build a season or two.

Murray has to shoulder some of the blame for this team's poor play, but he was not going to fire himself, so I think at the urging of the owner he had to promote Dave Cameron, who the owner wanted as head coach when MacLean was hired.

So how can you say "The writing was on the wall from the get go, and MacLean was never given 100% support from Management" ???

Isn't that a bit contradictory?

The GM hires MacLean, but the owner wants the former Coach of his OHL team to be one of the assistants (after he was not chosen for the job).

How would you describe that scenario?

Why did Melnyk agreed to sign a 3 year extension, considering it's been reported times and times again that the Sens are in a bit of a funk, financially speaking?




My thoughts are that Maclean's head got bigger than the team, started to single out players and look honestly clueless in interviews (saying he was as scared of his own team than their opponent).

He lost the room because he became an arrogant Richardface.

And then he got fired, because the players quit on him.






Not because Melnyk wanted his buddy to coach his team.

Did you miss the part when I posted that he was nominated for the Jack Adams twice, winning it once in his first two seasons as coach?

Did you forget I posted that his team made the playoffs in his first two seasons, and making it past the Habs into the second round in the 2012 13 season, and was then offered a 3 year extension?

It appears he was asking more along the lines of why was he offered one if the writing was on the wall.

My point was, if the writing was on the wall, why did the Sens owner offer him a 3 year deal only to fire him 25 games into his new deal?


Oh, right... forgot how terrible the Sens management and ownership is. Sorry.

He was given his new contract based on performance, and was fired for the same reason. I don't know what writing was on the wall as I've never actually seen this wall everyone keeps referring to...

They gutted the team. Spend (frank) all on their roster. Trade away their top line and wonder why the coach became frustrated?

Yeah that's insane. No patience at all from Melynk. Hey (frank) o maybe invest some money on an NHL roster. I can't envision any coach getting anymore out of that squad then Maclean did.
