    Ladies & Gentlemen,

    So the last thread was closed, I’ve DMd a couple mods to re-open it but haven’t heard back & I’m not an entirely patient person.
    I’m happy to have this merged into that thread and have it re-opened.

    The Sens are being sold. This is happening.

    There will be a press conference in 2 weeks and the announcement will be made.
    Open the thread & let’s let this play out.

    If I’m wrong well, you can have all my vbucks, whatever you use them for...it’s possible I’m being trolled by a friend for laughs but I guess we’ll all find out together.
    Whatever happens, I hope we can all remain anonymous friends.

    I know this conversation took place, I know the person directly.
    When asked point blank by a friend if the team was sold/being sold this was the response from Melnyks lips:

    “Sandra (not her real name) i can’t confirm or deny, make of that what you want, that’s all I can say right now”
    - The Euge

    I’ve also heard from another person separately who has good insight that he had heard new movement towards a sale.

    That’s it. Yell at me, scream for joy, remain sceptical, call me a liar. It’s all good.
    Just reopen that thread, and we’ll have some well documented laughs one way or the other when this ones over.
    We can even try to keep politics out of it.

    So which is it? You say there will be a press conference in 2 weeks and they are being sold. Then you say you might be getting trolled. Like I really really want to believe you.. I just don't want to get my hopes up again. It hurts too much lol

    Two people on twitter said something will be announced after the SCF.

    I still don’t want to get my hopes up, but I’ll take anything. There’s too much smoke.

    It would be an elaborate out of character troll but it’s possible, anything is possible but from my end, it was really just a caveat as I’m not the one who spoke to melnyk and I know there are people who will say exactly that.
    Im like you - I want it to be true.
    Im in though, I believe it - and I’ll eat a lot of crow if proven wrong.

    Please let this be true. If the sens are sold guaranteed that Karlsson signs.

    It does leave me a bit pessimistic though that Melnyk just hired a former colleague as COO. Hoping it’s just a favour.

    I've heard many rumours as well. They're second hand so take it with a grain of salt.

    I have heard about a potential cirque de soleil deal. Apparently from what I heard, is that the company behind cirque de soleil bought Melnyk's debt from the bank. And when he needs to pay it back or whatever then he will be forced to sell the team to settle the debt. Also heard Alfie may be paired with them.

    This is going to suck if we get our hopes up for nothing.

    If it does turn out to be true, this thread will turn out to be legendary.

    Cautiously allowing myself to be hopeful about this.

    Even if it's bogus, I feel like we should keep the thread up and running. It's the off-season for us and some false hope is nice.

    Mods should allow this thread to stay open on the condition that Wondercarrot's account be deleted should he be wrong. :sarcasm:

    Maybe he hired him so he could help him put a brave face on him selling the team? Then again I don't think you need a pro to put a positive spin on this.

    I bet it’s not fun for Melnyck with Murray gone, Murray smoothed a lot of bad things over and kept a ton heat off of Crazy-Euge.

    His friends have all left the building (fans, season ticket holders, Murray, Lyndon Slewedge, Dave Cameron, Alfie, Karlsson, Phaneuf, Kyle Turris and the list goes on)

    Melnyck still has Boro, but sometimes even Boro isn’t enough

    Kept this myself because, well...you just never really know who actually knows who but it was told to me that the sale was happening as well. Friend of a friend of mine. I said sure yeah right but then the the Alfie reporter comments were posted days later....I have had cautious optimism ever since.

    I wonder whats going to happen with the scouting and draft if the team is sold.

    I can't imagine (hope) Dorion and Randy Lee being kept on under new ownership. So i'm guessing Trent Mann just gets the final say?

    If it happens in the rough timeline given we should point and laugh at said "legit insiders " .

    The large amount of fake news on the 'net has made me very skeptical of this rumour.

    This would be the perfect time for something like this to go down.
