Creating Extra Revenue for Melnyk

Discussion in 'Ottawa Senators' started by Margaret Trudeau*, Oct 2, 2013.

  1. I was thinking that since Melnyk is already above his budget, but dangerously close to the cap floor, of some ways to help him out.

    One idea is to not tax the students or poor people.

    So how about increasing the parking fee?

    How much would you (or your parents) be willing to pay for parking?

    20, 30, 40 dollars? This could greatly increase revenues without harming ticket sales too badly because the people with cars obviously have money.

    Judging from some of the recent reactions to Melnyk, putting him in a dunk tank and charging $5 a go should generate about $1,000,000,000 in additional revenue.

    Melnyk should think about expanding the CTC. Maybe add a Casino with a racetrack and a hotel or something.

    We need to buy this team from him. I'll be CFO.

    For just the price of 400,000 cups of coffee a day, you can help give Zack Smith all he needs to live.

    Having a car does not equate to being rich. That'd be a great way to ensure I never go to a game again. That's way too much to pay for 3 hours of parking in the middle of nowhere and, once you have a car, you feel like taking the bus is pretty much beneath you.

    Congrats; instead of generating an extra 10$ from me, you've just lost 50$+.

    This!!!
    edit: not that Melnyk would want the books to become public and audited under securities laws... that would probably take the wind out of his claims that the Senators/CTC are not viable for any reason other than the massive debt load he's amassed since buying them.
