Evening Line- Ken Warren

At this point, it’s a circus, fast becoming a crisis situation for passionate Senators fans, who appear to have reached their breaking point with owner Eugene Melnyk. As the weekend arrived, they were wondering if they had already seen their captain play his final game for the team.

Melnyk is the cheapest owner in the sport and frankly an embarassment to the NHL and the city of Ottawa. Any owner who lets the most difficult player to replace, a franchise defenseman, in the prime of his career, leave because he doesn’t want to pay market value, doesn’t deserve to be an owner in the league. It’s quite clear to me that that Melnyk is trying to do a cash dump, and get his team closer to the cap floor. He constantly complains about having to use his money to keep the team afloat. The people of Ottawa shouldn’t fall for that b.s. Every dollar he puts into the team will be recouped when he eventually sells it. Just look at how much money was made in the Carolina deal.

It likely won’t happen but I’d like to see the league get involved in this mess. Tell Melnyk to shut up or sell the team.
