Does this sound like a good idea to anyone?

From the Ottawa Sun today

"The Senators’ search for a goalie coach is about to officially begin. GM Bryan Murray has spent the last couple of days meeting with Gs Pascal Leclaire and Brian Elliott to get an idea of what they’d like to see in a replacement for Eli Wilson, who was fired following last week’s 6-1 loss to the Thrashers in Atlanta. “I spoke with Brian and I talked at length with Pascal (Tuesday) to get their input on what kind of situation they’d like to see for a replacement,” said Murray. “I’ll begin speaking with people in the next few days, but I wanted to speak to both goalies first.” Leclaire has worked with former Columbus coach Clint Malarchuk in the past and there’s talk the Senators have been doing homework on him. He has been out of hockey since suffering a gunshot wound in October 2008."

Hiring a guy who got his neck sliced by a skate and then got shot to coach a guy who got H1N1, put on the IR for one month because of a puck to the face while on the bench and out for a week with a concussion for taking a puck on the noggin in practice.  

2012 is right around the corner, but these guys are getting a head start.
