Ok everyone, brace yourselves. Now for the time being, this is just a rumor, and I do stress that it's a rumor as I don't like just throwing crap out there, but I have been hearing more and more that Bryan Murray will be fired on Thursday or Friday and that none other than TSN's Pierre McGuire will be taking over the GM duties for Ottawa.
Take it with a grain of salt if you want, but I've been constantly hearing this and it is NOT going away at all. I'm already talking myself into him as our next GM, and remember, he was next in line for the Minny job this summer and has previously worked for the Sens.
My take is how could he be any worse than Murray at this point? I don't care for his over the top boradcast style, but you cannot criticize his hockey knowledge. The guy knows every single player on planet earth and that couldn't hurt when trying to convince players to come here as UFA's right? I know, I'm reaching.
For now it's just a rumor............for now. From what I've been told, the idea around SBP is that if Murray isn't coming back next year anyways, why delay the inevitable and allow Murray to screw up the future even more or the trade deadline yet again by trying to save his job one last time. I have to say I completely agree.
