Hartsburg gone

Fired last night after the Capital beatdown.

News conference at 11am today.

Jeremy's post after the Columbus loss was bang on:
It was one of those games that intermittently sours me on Craig Hartsburg. I've both liked and disliked him at various points this year but I'm starting to tilt one way over the other.


Something is not right here. Hartsburg is looking desperate and illogical by first scratching Jason Smith, one of the guys who plays the shutdown system the most effectively and then sitting Dean McAmmond last night in what can only be seen as a coach just trying to embarrass a veteran player.


Instead we get another low scoring snoozefest and a coach who has hit rock bottom by trying to embarrass his veteran leadership group.

If this keeps up, Hartsburg will be gone and he'll have to take at least some of the blame even though the fans and the media will predictably make him out to be a martyr.

Garrioch is reporting the coach of the Binghamton Senators is taking over:
The man who is expected to take over as head coach is Cory Clouston, who has been the coach of Ottawa's AHL affiliate in Binghamton. He has led a talented young team in Binghamton to a 25-16-3 record in his second season there as head coach.
