Ottawa Owner Wants The Cup

from the Ottawa Citizen,
Almost to a fault, Melnyk is driven to bring back the glory years of the original Senators hockey club of the early 20th century. He wants it so badly he can taste it, and speaks of it, fate-temptingly, in January. In an effusive open letter to fans Melnyk has sent to local newspapers encouraging fans to "help bring the Cup home," the owner suggests his 2005-06 team is "harnessing the spirit of 1927." "We came back to the team we love," he writes. "We made the right trades. We mixed the right players. We hired the right coaches and -- today -- we're delivering a winner."
