The last two years brought a lot of frustrations to all Sens fans around the world and in our beloved city. The Melnyk's road mapping, the grand plan, the schemes are now for everyone to see. Melnyk is keeping the team to the point, until receiving his portion of a payout for 20 million dollars of the NHL expansion dispersing fee in 2021. After this, 100% - there will be a sign "for sale" next to the Canadian Tire Center. For exactly this next step, he has to keep his payroll as low as possible. Preferably, he has to have only draft picks with no money attached to them and unsigned young stars to maximize the team's sale value and to pocket the profit as much as possible. Because he borrowed against the team - line of credit as a lien on a final sale is 250 million already, what we know at least. This is exactly why Melnyk's lieutenant Dorion in this scheme "la cloche à plongeurs" and is drafting off board or college players, or players committed to play in different league, or even players committed to go through military service as Lassi Thomson ( WTF???) and Pinto who is a galaxy far far away from NHL. It all points to the team sale, nothing else. They are drafting for sale, they are trading for sale, they are doing everything for sale.
