Hey, here's a thought. How about NOT firing Cory Clouston?
NO WAIT! COME BACK! Hear me out.
Earlier this afternoon, the Senators’ official Twitter account (@NHL_Sens) sent the Interwebs abuzz by publishing the audio from Cory Clouston’s media scrum. Although the coach’s answers covered a number of topics, it was the ones pertaining to the health of Daniel Alfredsson that created quite the stir.
According to Clouston, Alfie’s weeks away and there’s been absolutely no progress in his recovery.
“It’s the type of injury where one day it feels a certain way and another day it feels another way. We’re not going to put him in a situation where it could make any further damage because that’s what it has done all season. He’s been getting progressively worse, the more he tried to fight through it so we’re not going to put him in that situation.”
Last night I received an email from Neate Sager who writes the fantastic Buzzing the Net junior hockey blog for Yahoo! Sports. He asked me a simple question related to a February 18th article that was written in the Wall Street Journal by Scott Cacciola, was this really the Fisher reaction?
My response: Oh, hells no. It's a simplistic and lazy piece of writing that manipulates some quotes and facts to portray Ottawa as some spiteful and jaded backwater town. For the purposes of this site, I've reposted Cacciola's article below and as always, my thoughts will be in bold.
