    Might be the only time you take Katz.

    Katz. Spends to the cap and doesn’t interfere with hockey ops. Easy choice.

    His only weakness is that he’s too lenient. He needs to step up and clean house completely. If you can’t build a competent team around the best player in the world, there is a problem.

    Not necessarily true.

    You still take Katz, the guy who got a new arena built. But Katz is the reason Yakupov was an Oiler. And why Kevin Lowe is still employed.

    You take Katz. If Ottawa had Katz we'd probably have the new arena deal being worked out anyways and wouldn't have bled talented management and players.

    He interferes with hockey ops. It's the biggest knock against him as an owner

    Daddy Katz and his deeep pockets. Melnyk is the guy with crocodile arms. Nobody likes those types of people.

    Wouldn’t they have taken Ryan Murray instead? It would have ended up being about the same.

    This is a trick question. There is no right answer.

    That's a valid point, it really wouldn't have mattered.

    But he did interfere with hockey ops, and at the time it seemed like a no brainer to pick Nail

    I'm a Leafs fan and I sympathize with Sens fans. Melnyk is just an all-round terrible owner and human being.

    Katz without a question. Katz tries and wants the team to do well.

    Neither cares about winning. The only difference between them is that Melnyk is more public with his idiocy.

    At least Katz has enough money to run his team correctly, maybe nothing else good about him though. On the MSG telecast I am watching they said Katz was on the roadtrip with the Oilers, which they said he never does, so maybe that is a positive.

    Katz because at least there’s hope things can turnaround without a $500 million transaction.
