Ferguson’s experience in managing a team and his keen understanding of the sport certainly make him a strong contender.

This statement underscores the need for the Senators to bring on board someone with a proven track record, capable of revitalizing the team.

What are Sens fans saying about the Ottawa Senators GM Search?

Sens fan here: Hard pass for me on Spezza. No competitive fire. Nice dude though.

Spezza wasn’t able to handle the pressure as the captain… lol can you imagine as the GM?

Fergeson is useless. He ruined the Leafs 15 years ago. Patrick Roy would be a great hire.
