OTTAWA - It didn't take long for Bryan Murray to start sending people packing.

A day after saying he'd made a decision on the future of Guillaume Latendresse, the veteran winger tweeted Wednesday he was packing his bags and thanked the people of Ottawa for their support this season.

Latendresse, signed to a one-year deal as UFA on July 1, will have to test the market again this summer because Ottawa won't be bringing him back next year. Expect centre Peter Regin and defenceman Mike Lundin to be given similar news if they haven't been already.

"It seems official now. Thanks to the fans, management, owner of the Sens. An A1 class organization," Latendresse tweeted around noon Wednesday.

This is no surprise.

It just didn't work for Latendresse. The 26-year-old missed 21 games either injured or as a healthy scratch. He finished 6-4-10 in 21 games.
