Franchise Notes

On Long Island, Neil Best writes by parting ways with coach Barry Trotz, Islanders GM Lou Lamoriello "further put himself on the line as the better-be-right decision-maker for a core group whose last hurrah could well be" the '22-23 season. To Lamoriello’s credit, he "took full responsibility for the move," saying that he "told no one about it other than ownership." He "scoffed at the notion that he consulted with players." Trotz' "blunt candidness and expansiveness with reporters" was an "awkward fit with the buttoned-down Lamoriello" (NEWSDAY, 5/10).

NOT THE RIGHT FIT: In Ottawa, Bruce Garrioch notes the Senators yesterday fired Senior VP/Player Development Pierre McGuire less than a year into his three-year deal. The belief is the Senators did not feel McGuire was the "right fit," and that is "why the decision was made to cut ties with him." The decision to bring in McGuire "caught the hockey world off guard." He was hired by late Owner Eugene Melnyk to "help support [GM Pierre] Dorion in the evaluation of players." The signing of D Michael Del Zotto as an unrestricted free agent last summer "didn’t work out the way anybody expected." The belief in hockey circles is that McGuire "played a big role in that decision" (OTTAWA CITIZEN, 5/10).
