    Actually kinda surprised no Ottawa, I figure some American markets would enjoy seeing their team absolutely speedbag an opponent a few times a year, that's a guarantee with Eugene's Sens as the opponent on most nights.

    What is anything divided by zero equal? It isn't a large number

    The Sens not showing up on NBC shouldn't be a surprise. Even at our best we were a terrible draw on American television. I guess it's a little bit shocking to be the only team in the league with 0 games, but at best this team would have had 1 or 2, tops.

    Yeah I am almost positive 0 is par the course for us, even if we are good. It's usually 1 tops per year ever since the NHL has been on NBC.

    Woof... The club not being the catalyst behind pushing Alfie for the HOF is a travesty. Not normal at all.

    Actually it is the norm for the Ottawa Senators' organization. Hence the problem.

    This is just embarrassing. Not sure its possible to spin this one with some sort of excuse.

    Considering there's no COO to spin it, and no CMO to spearhead the marketing campaign, there's just no hope for the team doing anything with regards to this. They literally don't have the people in place to accomplish anything.

    There are those "online influencers", the ones on social media and in other online forums and sites that shall not be named. Guys like Jack Maxwell. Not sure if those were a creation of Deziel's or not though, maybe she took her bots with her.

    Lee Versage was also trying very hard yesterday to spin. So there are spinners still out there that don't actually get paid a salary by Melnyk.

    They drove him away twice already, and Alfie let the cat out of the bag with his comments on Melnyk, so I'd say no chance of the franchise throwing their weight behind this.

    If only we could throw Eugene out on his ass and welcome back Alfie and Cyril.

    It's not a number at all.

    Anything divided by zero is considered "undefined". It's not a valid mathematical equation.

    I'm sure there is an extremely small subsection of the fanbase that will still blindly defend the organization on this.

    Is it more than 0? Seems like it wouldn’t be more than 0

    There are some who blame Alfredsson for leaving and hold it against him, so probably more than 0.

    Knowing everything we do now, how in the world could anyone ever blame Alfie knowing what he was dealing with for an owner.

    Cyril Leeder has a ton more he could say. Take that to the bank.

    Not with the NDA he likely signed, unless he's going to the bank to withdraw the penalties he'd have to pay...

    I'm surprised he stuck around as long as he did.

    Yeah, I know. Would love to hear his stories, but alas, it's never going to happen.
