MacLean, who is just two seasons removed from winning the Jack Adams Award, which is given annually to the best coach of the year, led the Senators to an 11-11-5 record this year before being let go.

"We continue to be a big turnover team in our zone," Senators general manager Bryan Murray said during a news conference Monday. "Our goaltending has been, to say the least, outstanding most nights to give us a chance to win hockey games. The chances against our team are, some nights, atrocious. I think there's an obligation for a lot of people, the players included, to perform better than that. But the leader of the pack always is the coach."MacLean coached 238 regular season games during his four seasons with Ottawa, posting a 114-90-45 record.
