    Was it very smart of Lisa MacLeod to confront Euge in a public venue like that? No, clearly not. There's a time and a place for that, and this was neither. Having said that, hands up anyone who thinks that this went down the way Eugene claims it did. Anyone? Buehler? Taking selfies with Sens fans? Please. First off, there wouldn't be any there. In case anyone hasn't noticed, our team isn't exactly wildly popular in Central and Southern Ontario. Second, Melnyk is notoriously prickly in public and doesn't like doing photos with fans.

    Next comes his claim that he didn't know who she was. Child please - they've met before, and there is a photo of the two of them in front of Queen's Park from two years ago.

    Finally, there is his predictably ungracious reaction to MacLeod calling him afterward. She calls him to offer an olive branch, and he rejects it because it fell short of a grovelling apology. Again, classic Eugene. Massive ego, nurses grudges - every time he speaks, the comparisons to the Orange One become more apt, including the fact that both of them are swimming in debt and not nearly as rich as they would like you to believe.

    Our local MPP is a complete embarrassment to the community and to put it in her own words "a ****ing piece of ****".

    I agree she should step down or be let go. As long as Eugene does the same.
    He has been more offensive for far longer and to more people so it is only fair.

    That's right up there with, "It's not about the money", (It's always about the money), "I don't have much to say", (That means they won't shut up for the next half hour), etc. etc.

    Maybe Lisa can cut a deal. She resigns and Melnyk sells. She’d get my vote next time

    Melnyk legitimately will take any opportunity to be in the public eye, eh?

    Dude craves attention to such an unsettling degree.

    This guy is a piece of trash of society.

    He'd do the NHL, the city of Ottawa, and the Ottawa Senators a great service if he decided to get the **** out of here.

    Friendly hello from San Jose. What are the chances Melnyk actually sells the team? I feel bad for you guys. So many good players leave Ottawa.

    Zero, according to him.
    He says IF he ever sells, it's going to be to one (or both) of his daughters.

    We seem to go through phases where the rumour mill implies something might be imminent, but then it inevitably quiets down. I think this has happened three times, and it's gotten to the point where most of us aren't getting our hopes up anymore.

    I feel the chances are good, considering from a business PoV the team is in shambles, and he's already fielded offers (and declined), but the real question is when. Is it going to be tomorrow, or 2023? No one has a god damn clue, likely including him.

    He seems content to hang on and losing more star players is just a matter of time, especially with RFA's getting insane bonus laden contracts.

    There's no hope for Senators fans unfortunately.

    Seriously feel bad for you guys. Fantastic scouting, getting absolute studs in late rounds, only to see them leave because the owner won't pay them.

    Hopefully he's not in charge once Chabot is a UFA.

    If the team doesn't make him any money, then he has more incentive to sell, because above all else, he wants more money.

    So if we don't give the team any money, then that speeds up the process.

    That's the plan we're working with, anyway.

    I saw the Stones a few times in my 20s. They were in their 40s in those days and I thought they were old men then lol

    I didn't really think much of this story and how it got on the news until I just read this board. I'm stunned that Melnyk went to the media with this, it speaks volumes of his massive sense of entitlement and anosognosia. So what if some drunk person told you off at a social gathering, regardless of who it is. It's an insignificant encounter.
    It's just like getting cut off on the road and freaking out and calling the cops. You're an epic entitled moron.

    Yeah no.

    I think if your local MPP approached you drunk, identified herself, and then told you off, you might not just let it slide.

    Personally I think Politicians should be held to a higher standard, even if she did correctly identified EM.

    Two turds.....
