    After successfully running many players out of town, our media is at it again. Clouston should be fired for starting Elliot last night??

    In the words of Keyshawn Johnson....CMON MAN!!

    There are plenty of reasons why Clouston should be fired, and they DO NOT include not trying to rush a 19 year old who was very mediocre the other night on the Island. Games on back to back nights, with travel involved for a kid, yes a KID, whi is the future of this team. 80% of the coaches in this league would have made the exact same decision as Clouston did Friday night.

    I am sick and tired of the bush league journalism in this city. From the guys on the Team 1200, to our Sum media group.

    Clouston will be fired at some point, but not for this reason Mr. Brennan.

    Ottawa media at times is not great but its nothing compared to media in toronto and montreal.As for running many players out of town the fact is only 2 players have asked for a trade that is not many.

    That's pretty weak and I'm all for giving Robin his 2nd start tomorrow.

    I think they will have him back tomorrow to backup Elliot (although I think it should be Broduer), no way should he play against a angry Caps team who's lost 2 in a row.

    There was a very different tone in this morning's Sun. I wonder if DB and BG had a meeting and decided to go after Clouston in a new way. Both of them were on the attack...but I suspect it's more about selling papers for them and less about their "love" for the team.

    If I were Clouston, I'de welcome getting fired at this point. He still gets paid, and he gets out of the fishbowl. I don't think it would make to much difference to his future coaching opportunities, because at this point not being renewed = being fired for him.

    The Ottawa media is always critical of the organization it seems, it's nice that they're not biased but I can't really think of journalists here that are pure Sens flag-wavers. There was an editorial in the Sun by Earl McRae that was worse than this piece completely mocking Leclaire and his injuries...the type of thing you expect to see on a message board not by a "respected" journalist

    It could in some ways if he can't handle the media here there is a bunch of cities that have much harder media.However i think he is doing a good job with the media and is showing no signs of having major issues with them.

    I'm cool with that too, just needs to be playing. We haven't seen the last of him in the NHL this year as far as starting goes...as long as he's not sitting on the bench while he waits for those opportunities.

    Brennan's jounalism sytle has been trending downwards for a while now. He's getting close to Earl McCrae (sp?) territory...

    Brennan's the worst of a pretty bad bunch. He should have been fired a long time ago, but unfortunately the Sun doesn't have an editor so he can write whatever he wants.

    He's a joke amongst jokes. Completely unqualified. He should stick to fluff pieces and pimping 67's players (because they're the only ones whose names he knows.)

    Don Brennan has always been an awful hockey writer. Yet people like you still read his articles.

    And that is why he won't be fired.

    The best way to get rid of Don Brennan is not to read his articles and tell everyone how ****** he is, but to completely ignore him and anything the Sun ever writes. Trust me, I've been doing it for years, it feels good.

    As Mendes commented, had Lehner started it would've been 4 starts in 6 days for a 19 year old goaltender.

    Pretty obvious why Clouston would prefer to have Lehner sit and rest than play again.

    Edit - beaten to the punch by OmniSens

    The way Brennan's going at it you'd think Lehner had a shutout or something. Giving the circumstances I guess he did ok but he's not ready AT ALL to play at this level.

    These hacks we have for journalists here in Ottawa is embarrassing.

    Actually, the Sun does have a sports editor, and he's the only person in the industry who's a bigger assclown than Brennan. Tim Baines.

    Journalism 101:

    Brennan is doing exactly what he intended. Create some controversy, sit back and be entertained by it. McRae does the same thing and has made a career out of it. Neither one of them are great writers but people still read the stuff.

    Should that really be journalism 101? Writing crap? Just like all media nowadays, whether it be news, politics, sports, its purposely done to gather ratings and attention, as opposed to being a REAL journalist by writing facts. And if you write an opinion piece, back it up with facts and make a valid argument.

    Sorry, end rant.

    I was at McD's reading the article and it just struck me as a journalist who is trying to ride populist opinion without really having anything substantive to back it up with. Yeah people are upset with Clouston but foff, it was a lame article and noone would say Lehner was stellar the night before nor would have he been the difference.

    The journalist seems to not be a very creative nor confident writer to latch on to general vibe towards CC and run with it at any opportunity. Weak

    I wanted Lehner to start against Calgary, but the way Brennan is acting towards Clouston is pretty bush league. Pretty much un-readable.

    The Sun is anti-Clouston
    The Citizen is anti- Murray

    Brennan is a big fat unhappy man who thinks the cure for the Senators is to sign Zenon Konopka and start a goalie who has 1 game experience and in his one start has a .833% and a 4.00 GA.

    I hope Lehner doesnlt get more then 11 starts because I;d liek to see him as a rookie of the yearr candidate next season

    Wait, you mean Ottawa Sun writers don't do any research? Shocking!
