Shannon up, Regin and Hunt to Binghamton

The Senators today announced that Ryan Shannon has been recalled from Binghamton to play in Ottawa. Just an assumption, but I'm going to say that new coach Cory Clouston is looking for more pure offence, and Shannon is the most purely offensive player in Bingo.

To make room for Shannon, Peter Regin has been sent back to Binghamton. Regin was lots of fun to watch, and made plenty happen, but at this point in his career he seems more like a third-liner, which Ottawa has plenty of. I look forward to seeing what he can bring next year, with a bit more size and a full year of North American pro under his belt/

Finally, former Senators assistant coach Curtis Hunt announced that he'd accept the head coaching job in Binghamton. I guess you could say it's semi-interim, depending what happens with Clouston this year, but Ottawa's paying Hunt anyway--might as well have him working somewhere.
