    Just a quick note;

    The past few threads that discussed ownership and management have become heated fairly quickly. I get that people are passionate about the topic which covers a wide array of themes beyond just hockey stuff that can stir up emotions, but it's important to keep the discourse civil, and stay away from being overly provocative. While it may seem like threads are locked for no reason, you don't see all the posts that we delete, and when the conversations start to repeat with no additional content save an extra dash of flaming, trolling or provoking one another, locking the thread is the result.

    So with that in mind, please try and:

    1. Critique the content of the post not the poster
    2. Don't mis-characterize a posters position or posts to something outlandish. in other words don't twist what somebody posts to the worst possible interpretation.
    3. Claims of Insider Information/ Rumors & Hearsay: If you're an insider, contact us with proof BEFORE you post. These posts will be allowed/rejected at the discretion of administrators after consulting with other posters, moderators, and relevant sources. Deference will be given to veteran members who have established credibility. It's not acceptable to post that you heard someone has a drinking/drug/sex/personal problem from a "good" source. Do not post information that can be considered defamatory without a link to a credible media source. Other forums, personal websites, amateur/unvetted blogs, hearsay, and personal testimonials are not considered credible.

    It will be interesting to see how this management group does with the next 4-6 years ... the core assets they inherited have passed their peak. I give full props to a management group that can turn this around quickly vs the ones that take over a “fully primed” rebuild with Crosby/Malkin type 19 year old assets.

    The Hawks group turned things around when they got a new owner.

    We are being proactive for the inevitable snap firing when skeletons come out of the closet or the new guy rubs Euge the wrong way...

    Most likely the losses will be equalised. Leafs and Habs will subsidise the lower income teams like Ottawa.

    Eugene will also get a handout from the government... especially for lending out the CTC for the parliamentary meetings.

    How much playoff revenue are the Senators really out? If the NHL has to give back money for the national broadcast deals, then the Sens will lose that but a high escrow number to scale back what the players were paid will be significant for the Senators.

    The teams I'd consider in trouble are the ones without the big regional tv deal and expecting big playoff crowds. Teams like Tampa Bay, St Louis, Colorado, etc.

    One of the funding sources of revenue sharing payments is playoff revenues; teams in the playoffs contribute a 3rd of their gates to it. We're going to lose some revenue sharing for sure.

    We will lose a lot of revenue for sure, but the losses will be divided up so that the financially weak teams are not in danger of folding.

    Who knows, maybe the NHL will again help refinance some debt... and the cycle continues.

    If they cancel the playoffs or shorten them it’s not good for anyone

    I don't see this being a serious rumour other than the rumour last year of #MelnykOut hiring the services of a firm to look for a new owner/investor. I always thought this rumour mutated from the rumour of El Cheapo attaining the services of a firm to headhunt a new CEO. At least these show that the rumours some of us kept hearing wrt Sens ownership may not have been barbar talk.

    I Beliebe the Bieb rumours were just talk - perhaps Biebs said something that spread like wildfire, much like anything Bieb related.
