The State Of The Ottawa Senators

from TSN,

Guy Boucher's future in Ottawa remains unclear.

Senators general manager Pierre Dorion said Thursday the team’s entire coaching staff is under evaluation and there is no timeline for a decision.

When pressed, Dorion said the team wouldn’t make a decision until the end of April.

Boucher was an overtime goal away from the Stanley Cup Final last season, but his team regressed badly in 2017-18.

Dorion said if Boucher returns, he will need to see two changes from the team's head coach.

"We're going to implement younger players in our lineup.  And we're going to practice more," Dorion said. "If I hear 'rest is a weapon' one more time, I'll go crazy."
