Next Stage of the Rebuild

The newest Five Thoughts as we get closer to the 2021 NHL pre-season:

Pierre Dorion signed a 3-year contract extension with the Ottawa Senators on Wednesday that expires in 2025, ending speculation about Pierre McGuire being his potential successor in the immediate future. It’s strange to think about, but if he makes it to the end of that contract, he will have been the GM of the Senators for nine years. It’s certainly unusual to go into the final season of a coach or GM’s contract without signing an extension, so it makes sense that with Eugene Melnyk happy in the team’s direction, he wants to keep Dorion around.
