Bryan Murray On The State Of The Senators Including Paul MacLean

from Ian Mendes of TSN,

Speaking to TSN 1200 on Friday evening, Bryan Murray said he has not made any final decisions on his team for next season – and that includes giving a formal vote of confidence to head coach Paul MacLean.

When asked directly about MacLean's job security moving forward, Murray did not make any guarantees for his head coach or any of his players.

“I don't have a definite answer to that, but Paul's got a contract going forward. He was Coach of the Year last year and I don't know what happened this year necessarily as far as performance is concerned,” Murray said.

“I think he's a very good coach and I think he has the ear of the players in the room. We had some really tough outings and it's shared amongst a lot of people – myself included. We thought this team was better. We thought we had enough skill here to offset a couple of little things we were missing last year – and it didn't work out. Was that because of the departure of Daniel Alfredsson? Was it because we overestimated a couple our young guys? I think all of those evaluations will take place and will continue. With 10 games to go, we'll be watching very closely with the effort that is put forward here. I'm certainly not planning to make any decisions until the 82 games have gone by and we'll make a decision based on the whole year.”
