Morning Line

“Yes, we want to make our team better — always — but never with a player unless we are on the ‘A’ list.”  I believe, and I think our fans would echo this, it is a privilege to play in Ottawa.

“You want more money? A bigger car or house? Lots of other teams will spend like idiots. We are a true TEAM with REAL special and smart fans. I don’t care who you are, you have to WANT to play in Ottawa. That’s what defines us.”

-Ottawa Senators owner Eugene Melnyk, but not mentioning the name of Rick Nash.  More from Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun.

“you have to WANT to play in Ottawa. That’s what defines us.” You and every small market team with little attraction to top free agents. DOH!

I like his talking points, but how has that approach worked out for them so far?

I get what he’s tryin to say (they don’t want to have to twist anyones arm to come play there), but yeah, this comes off real badly.
