Reports of imminent firings atop the Ottawa Senators’ organization are untrue, club owner Eugene Melnyk insists.

Melnyk released a statement yesterday that there was no merit to suggestions in Le Journal de Montreal that said Melnyk is about to hire veteran NHL coach Pat Quinn and Hockey Canada president Bob Nicholson to replace Craig Hartsburg and Bryan Murray, respectively.

“Contrary to what is being reported today by the media, I have made no decisions with respect to any personnel changes within the Senators organization,” Melnyk said. “Winning remains our No. 1 priority, and there is a collective focus ... to deliver this to our fans.”

Quinn, 64, hasn’t coached in the NHL in more than two seasons. On Monday night, he coached the Canadian junior team to a world championship.
