If Erik Karlsson Is Traded

from Don Brennan of the Ottawa Sun,

But if the Senators do trade Karlsson, he just may go from being despised to the most hated owner in the history of sports.

How’s Melnyk ever going to be able to go to the rink to watch his own team play without being verbally abused by every man, woman and child in attendance?

No, his best move would be to sell today.

That way he doesn’t diminish the product. That way he makes a half-billion dollars and rides off into the sunset.

That way a new owner steps in and puts an end to the insanity by promising Karlsson isn’t going anywhere.
