Damn, dude got one year and 13 games there. Surprising. They did look lifeless Thursday against the Flyers though.

some sens were video recorded during an uber ride and it made its way to the internet.

The five-minute recording, shot from a camera mounted by the rear-view mirror, was subsequently posted on YouTube and Twitter. The bulk of the conversation centres on the team’s defensive woes — the Senators stand near the bottom of the league in terms of penalty-killing and are dead-last in shots allowed per game.

“Marty Raymond, the only coach in NHL history to have the worst power-play and the worst PK within a calendar year,” says Sens forward Matt Duchene, in reference to Martin Raymond, an assistant coach in charge of the team’s penalty-killing this year and power-play last season.

The remark is met with laughter and only invites more jest from the players.

Defenceman Chris Wideman, sitting in the front passenger seat, chirps in: “Do you notice that when (Raymond) runs the video, if you actually do pay attention, he doesn’t ever teach you anything? He just commentates what’s happening.”

Then Duchene can be heard replying: “Here’s the other thing, too. We don’t change anything, ever. So why do we even have a meeting? I haven’t paid attention in three weeks.”

The driver appears unaware of who the players are and, early in the ride, asks what team they play for. Newcomer Chris Tierney is seated behind the driver and can be seen and heard looking up team statistics on his phone, finding the Sens 29th in the 31-team league in terms of penalty killing.

Defenceman Thomas Chabot can also be seen in the middle of the second row of seats. When Wideman says, “I also hate how he quizzes us,” the conversation meanders and Chabot says, of the next potential meeting: “No, please ask a question, just so he says ‘great question.’”

Whoa.

It’s crazy how coaches can win ONE super bowl and coast on that for 8 years (Billick, McCarthy, Harbaugh) but in the NHL it’s completely different. You can win 3 cups in 6 years, the most recent one just three years ago and you’re fired

TBF NFL Coaches are much more responsible for the success of their teams than any other coach in the 4 major sports imo. Still crazy he got fired.

Rough first period in Ottawa tonight. First an 83-yr old man suffered a heart attack in the stands, then Vincent Trochek suffered a nasty knee/leg injury and the game was delayed because there weren't enough paramedics in the building

Arizona just traded away the #3 overall pick a few years ago (Dylan Strome) that was taken after McDavid and Eichel and before Marner. He's heading to Chicago with Brendan Perlini in exchange for Nick Schmaltz
