From the "What The F**k?!" category:
"If the Senators hire DeBoer, there's a strong belief in NHL circles that the club is going to need an experienced assistant coach.
Since former coach John Paddock is already under contract, there was one suggestion yesterday that the club might want to put him in that role with DeBoer. "

Don't laugh. The Colorado Avalanche did the same thing with Tony Granato. Now he's even back to being their head coach.
What's next? Maybe the Senators bring back Mel Bridgman to be Bryan Murray's assistant.
