John MacKinnon

For nearly three decades, John MacKinnon has covered mediocre to truly bad NHL teams in three Canadian cities: The Canadiens in the early '80s, when their dynasty was in decline; Ottawa in the early '90s, when the Senators made daily news as a league laughingstock; and the Oilers in the new millennium, when they have been within a victory of the Stanley Cup, in free-agent freefall and a promising rebuilding project. Up and down, mostly down.

Yes, he was over his head.
No, the problem is much bigger.
Fire MacT. That is all.
Who the heck knows?
