He has no further comment at this time. #BSens — Joy Lindsay (@PSBJoyOnTheSens) May 8, 2012 Bruce Garrioch elaborated further: I'm told Kurt Kleinendorst turned down more than one offer of a contract extension from Senators last season. #Sens — Bruce Garrioch (@SunGarrioch) May 8, 2012 While Senators fans and its media continue to wax poetic over the job and manner in which in Kleinendorst conducted himself, the Senators are in an intriguing position.

Daigle might not be the worst top pick ever (ummm, Brian Lawton might be worse) but he's close. He's bad enough to have a Hockeybuzz awards show named after him. Why write this blog now?
