    Are they trying to claim that MacLean is on a paid leave of absence and expected to report back to the Sens at some unspecified time?
    It's definitely odd that teams get compensation for fired coaches.

    I'm curious about this too. If the idea is that he's still under contract (a protection for prematurely fired coaches) then does that also mean that the Sens could ostensibly bring him back into the fold if they so desired?

    It's a fairly new rule ... I believe just this season it was introduced. Ironically, I think it was Ottawa who requested compensation rule because Buffalo was taking all of our staff.

    According to Pierre LeBrun, The Senators have given permission to the Ducks to speak with Paul MacLean about their vacant assistant coaching position.

    Having the Paulrus back in the league would be great for Ottawa since he has two years left on his contract at an unspecified salary. The benefits are a bit less clear for MacLean - it would be a definite cut in pay, but the apparent lack of interest in him for the vacant head coaching positions may motivate him to take a lesser position to stay in the game.

    Ottawa would likely be eligible for compensation, a 3rd round pick in the next three years, if the Ducks hire MacLean. Changes are expected to come to that rule that would remove compensation for coaches and executives who have been relieved of their duties, however that is unlikely to happen very quickly.
