TSN Confirms Through Player Source That Paddock Has “Lost The Room”

On TSN’s trade deadline coverage show, Brent Wallace confirmed in an interview over the air from a Boston hotel that the firing of John Paddock seems like “a foregone conclusion” and that one unnamed player told him that Paddock had long ago “lost the room.”

Pierre McGuire also stated that GM Bryan Murray sat down with Paddock recently and told him to ramp up his style to get the team going. McGuire said that Murray was concerned that Paddock was not emotional enough and that the team was “flatlining” because of it.

By no means does this imply that Paddock is as good as gone but it should be noted that Bryan Murray once fired his brother, Terry, so letting go of Paddock might not be that far fetched.
