    The current Ottawa Senators will become a case study for bad team management. This is a great opportunity to highlight the continued failures of the Sens upper management and their inability/unwillingness to bring positive changes about. I'm optimistic that outside forces will soon step in and Uncle Euge's days are numbered.

    I'm still a fan and not ashamed of it, but the management part of this team does everything but manage. Time for them to go and get another job.

    Is there a way to profit off of case studies?

    sounds like an opportunity for additional revenue streams to increase the team's budget. Sell off access to case studies our our ineptitude.

    I'm not embarrassed at all. I/We didn't do anything wrong.
    It's the management team that should be embarrassed.
    People have been making this point with their wallets for the last year+ and I expect the trend to continue.

    The only way back from this is a complete overhaul of the front office, starting with #melnykout.

    But let's be positive - we saw what happened when an ownership change happened in Chicago not that long ago, and they arguably had a worse owner in place.

    I'm not embarrassed to be a Sens fan, but I'm dejected as all hell. I didn't watch any of the playoffs this year because I've been pretty much done with this NHL season for a while. I still watched the Sens games, even when they were down and out, but I wasn't paying as much attention to those either.


    I'm not even excited about the draft anymore because this team is just in a constant string of bad decisions. 4th OA pick will be a dumb one. They'll trade EK for a garbage return. Somehow forget to make a selection at 22OA, and go to sleep until the 4th round when they finally pick again, and Hoffman will be on the starting roster next October because the Sens won't find anyone to trade him to, and Eugene is too poor to bury him in the minors.

    This is like Melnyk blaming the media for their response to his shenanigans rather than blaming his shenanigans.

    Every team has this. And going forward with social media we will see more of this.

    I wouldn't look too much into this.

    Bud I would normally have no problems jumping on the trash ottawa band wagon but if you think this kind of **** is isolated to just your club, you are wrong.

    going forward with twitter and egos...we are going to see more and more of this.

    it's slowly degrading into a steamy pile.

    You don't agree?

    All it takes is one cray cray hotty to go off the deep end.

    Since hockey players well athletes in general typically date hot chicks as the only criteria...this is/was only a matter of time.

    This is a pole thread now.

    Magnetic pole, to be precise.

    Every team has its issues. Not every team is slowly disintegrating to the ground and becoming known as one of the worst managed franchises in pro sports. Miss me with that "you're not the only ones with issues" crap.

    Vote results suggest it's a polish thread. Where's @PolakDave at? (@ function doesn't seem to track name changes and it loses it's humour if I use your current username...)

    It's still early, Magnetic Pole could take Ohio and then it's a whole new ball game we're talking about.

    Are you suggesting the results of the poll could flip, and this thread will become a fire pole?

    Depends on the results of the poll, we could get a Polack, a pole, or a poll. So many options.
