    lmao keep thinking that Eugene's kid.

    Just like only a minority of people don't want Karlsson traded and the rest are on the side of the ownership and the organization. The rest is fakenews right.

    I get the owner hiding...but shouldn't the president explain in more detail what they plan on doing to improve?

    In reference to Bonk Static’s statement, my “stupid” mindset is that people watch other people take action on something a large pourcentage of fans agree upon, sit at home, read an online forum, keep complaining about the culprit and criticize the guy who took action.

    In a simpler theory, it would be similar to someone offering to wash your car because you don’t feel like it, yet it really needs a wash. You sit by, watch the person do the job and complain the entire time and carry on about how you would do a better job.

    The guy took action. Whether it’s to the likes of everyone or not, what he’s done is certainly not disastrous. If I’m going to sit idle, I find it pretty tough to be in a position to criticize.

    My stupid two cents... peace out!

    Fully functional, emotionally stable adults with a healthy outlook on life don’t act out in petulant, hyper-negative attention seeking ways.

    That statement can apply to both Melnyk and the billboard crowd.

    But hey, it’s mildly entertaining and gives us something to discuss. I guess.

    Definitely a prime location! Take a picture and post it here!

    Then we'll triangulate your location and will know where you live.

    I dislike Melnyk big time, but I also couldn't care less about this billboard stuff. I guess its attention seeking, but I think the lack of season ticket renewals that are coming IMO are way more attention grabbing.

    Showcasing displeasure with the way your favorite franchise is being run apparently makes you an attention ****e. Another great analysis from HFBoards.

    If anything is certain,the message is loud and clear ..Too bad it took so long to get out......BM might have had a much better public image around here if he hadnt tried so hard to keep this silent,and take all the flak for him .....

    Which would be more effective and practical. Setting up billboards that state a small percentage of Ottawa Senator fans want Melnyk to sell the team, which he's stated numerous times that is not anything he contemplating ................. or a more representative (of Senator fans) billboard, stating he should extend Karlsson past next season?

    You claim there is a minority of fans who don't want Karlsson traded, but I'll bet there are a 1000 fans who want him to remain a Senator, for every single fan who wants Melnyk to sell the team.

    I suggest the better message to send (via billboard) is to keep Karlsson a Senator, rather than asking someone who will not sell his team, to sell it.

    The biggest issue with EM is his complete lack of vision past his own wealth...Us being a middling team for so long is completely because of him being unmoveable on budget..Him always making the move for playoff gate,has caught up to us ...Trading away picks or in most cases selling them,for a moderate upgrade here and there is the root cause..Also whenever the team resigns a player,and he doesnt preform ,or he gets injured...He needs to be replaced,but not at the cost of the future to save money all the time,is another way EM needs to start thinking....

    In short the word "Budget"needs to be removed entirely for his vocabulary ,he has worn it out completely with most,fans and players in this town

    I don't think so. I think that there are elements of the plan that need to be kept close until they are carried out. Things like trading, signing, hiring. Also, some specifics depend on what happens with EK.

    I think we already got a pretty general idea of what direction we're going in, we just have to wait until the off season to see the ball start rolling.

    Why are you attaching my name to this? I don't want my name anywhere close to whatever this is. This is yours - you can attach your name to it, leave mine out.

    I'm still amazed that people are taking offence to some people who, despite having the same views about the team and want to see the exact same end goal, do something as simple as "see a flaw in a plan and point it out". Blows my mind. It's like an architect getting angry at someone pointing out that their planned office tower is unsafe because they've made an error in their math and overloaded critical weight-bearing points in the structure. Like, what do you want - the building to collapse and kill everyone inside, or do you just want to fix your math and get it right before breaking ground on construction? That's obviously an extreme example, but it's extreme only to point out how absurd the reaction is when taken to a logical extreme.

    Here's a mindset for you: most of us all want the same goal, but most of us probably don't agree on how best to accomplish that. Some answers might be good ones, some bad ones. The first one put out might not necessarily be the best one, and simply pointing that fact out is not doing a disservice to the movement as a whole.

    Also: it's "BonkTastic". Bonk Static was my father.

    How dare you. Apparently you need to join me in the basement, where we will be whipped for daring to speak out against such an airtight, flawless plan.

    It's not even original. We just copied Islanders fans.

    To be fair, no one said it wasn't worth it.

    Just that the guy behind this wasn't prepared.

    I told a few people who didn't follow this much about where the billboards will be and they all had the same reaction: "well that's silly".

    Well they need to join me at the whipping post in the basement, obviously. How dare they not be anything but overjoyed at these billboards. This guy did something! That means it was the right thing, and anyone who says otherwise can get whipped.

    Line forms to the left. There's a door prize for loudest scream.

    Hey, I'm one of the original #MelnykOut-ers around here. I mean, I'm the one who wrote this post FOUR YEARS AGO. I get it, I'm on board.

    I'll definitely be happy if this gains traction. I'm certainly not rooting against it.
