Bryan Murray On The Firing Of Paul MacLean

from the CP at TSN,

Less than 18 months after being honoured as the NHL's coach of the year, Paul MacLean is out of a job.

The Ottawa Senators fired MacLean on Monday after an 11-11-5 start, though the problems team executives had with the coach extended back into last season when the Senators missed the playoffs.

Senators general manager Bryan Murray told a news conference Monday that assistant Dave Cameron will be the new head coach of the team.

"I've had some tough days lately," said Murray, who is currently undergoing cancer treatment and watched longtime Senator Daniel Alfredsson retire last week. "This is one of them."...

"We continue to be a big turnover team in our zone," said Murray. "Our goaltending has been, to say the least, outstanding most nights to give us a chance to win hockey games. The chances against our team are, some nights, atrocious. I think there's an obligation for a lot of people, the players included, to perform better than that. But the leader of the pack always is the coach."
