Lots of fun happening with the Sens today

Frank Seravalli @frank_seravalli

Sources say #Sens are making change at GM position: Pierre Dorion is out after 8 seasons.

#Sens say Steve Staios takes over as interim GM.

Resigned? Fired? #Sens owner Michael Andlauer says he met with GM Pierre Dorion last night and said the penalty for forfeiture of pick should be "no less" than his job.

"This could have been avoided."

Dorion agreed and they agreed to part ways.

"Why I inherited this is beyond me," #Sens owner Michael Andlauer says of #NHL punishment and forfeiture of first-round draft pick from an incident 591 days ago some 18 months before he purchased team.

He doesn't understand why it took the league so long to render a decision.

#Sens owner Michael Andlauer says #NHL did not advise him of either investigation - botched Dadonov "no-trade" clause or Pinto sports betting incident - before he closed on purchase.

“Maybe they didn’t want to disrupt it to make sure the seller got the best price possible."

Background on the 1st round pick Ottawa lost:

More than 19 months after the NHL invalidated a trade involving the Vegas Golden Knights and Anaheim Ducks at the 2022 trade deadline, the league punished the real culprit on Wednesday: the Ottawa Senators.

The NHL announced that the Senators must forfeit a future first-round pick over the next three years for their role in the botched deal because they did not originally supply Evgenii Dadonov’s “no-trade” list to the Golden Knights upon his arrival in 2021. The Senators will be allowed to select which year the first-round pick is forfeited – one of 2024, 2025 or 2026 – and the decision must be made within 24 hours of the culmination of the Draft Lottery.

The NHL declined to comment further than the league’s brief statement. For this story, the devil is in the details, and the Golden Knights were exonerated on Wednesday.
