Roy Mlakar took over as president of the Senators at a low point for the franchise and on Wednesday, he took the high road in discussing his departure from Ottawa. After 13 years with the club, it was announced earlier this week that Mlakar’s contract wasn’t renewed as part of a front-office shakeup following a disappointing season in which the Senators missed the playoffs for the first time since his arrival in 1996. With 83 points, the Senators experienced their worst season on the ice since they amassed that same amount during the 1997-98 season. Their performance resulted in the firing of coach Craig Hartsburg midway through the year.
