    Well, Yost was extremely cryptic (so much so that I am not even sure what he meant for sure) but he seemed to imply the Hoffman news was story 1 of Ottawa messiness. I wondered if that meant there was story two in the mix, but chose not to go there.

    Would be beyond shocked if it was anything positive but have not heard anything personally, anything Sens related lands somewhere on the scale from bad to epic scandal these days.

    Its probably that they're gonna trade karlsson and sign Slava Voynov to be his replacement because this organization seems completely tone deaf

    Why does it feel like the Ottawa Senators could be the setting for the TV Show Wrecked?

    Surprisingly funny under the radar show. I fully recommend. Good dark humour.

    So in January this account tweeted that trading Hoffman has nothing to do with salary...

    lol.

    Yost is a big time tease but this is clearly someone in or directly related to, the Sens hockey Ops braintrust.

    I really really really really hope that the person running that account is Eugene Melnyk. Seriously.

    I literally cannot explain how insane this past stretch is becoming.

    I think I'm officially more entertained than angry.

    Appears someone in the org has created a burner account to defend the team/mgmt. and owner at all costs, I assumed this was happening and am of the opinion that there are accounts and posters here who are directly tied to the org and are likely employed by them.

    Nice that it doesn't appear to be criminal at this time I guess!

    Hilarious.

    My guess would be Justin Murray but the fact that we parted ways makes that a little less likely.

    For some reason the tweet about Patrick Kane being innocent and thats why the lawyer was hired to clear his name. That just leads me to believe its Melnyk so badly, no fan would randomly say something like that.

    Honestly, the way that burner account talks is similar to FTF in my opinion

    For those that don't want to read. Some interesting takes if its someone linked to the org.

    It sounds so much like Melnyk how he's calling people idiots, and how the "fans don't understand". Im convinced.

    For me it's the tweet comparing fans who blame Ottawa management to serial killers.

    Yeah, reading through those posts makes me far less convinced that he's a part of the organization and way more convinced it's just FTF or someone similar lol

    For those who can't see tweets:

    1st one:
    Original tweet from @PrinciperSkiple: "Lmfao so you think Erik Karlsson went to court with this before notifying his employer that another employee’s spouse was threatening his wife’s life? Talk about naive.

    You’re in the deep minority on this one pal."
    Reply from @JimboMikeFisher: "The sens have so been trying to trade Hoffman for a while. They’re not idiots. They know they can’t play together anymore. He will be traded next week and all this will be a non issue"

    2nd:
    Original tweet from @TLOMitch: "#Sens fans confused about having the worst odds of winning the #StanleyCup in 2018–19 is in itself confusing.

    The Sens were one of the worst teams in 2017-18. Karlsson and Hoffman is on the way out. And they might draft a player that won’t play this year. How they any better?"
    Reply from @JimboMikeFisher: "Karlsson will not be traded. Hoffman being traded makes the team better."

    3rd:
    Original tweet from @spencerdjblake RE: Randy Lee possibly being punished before a court verdict: "I don't think it would be weird at all. He's going to court for sexually harassing a person who perfectly fits the demographic of players he has worked with for years."
    Reply from @JimboMikeFisher: "you are completely incorrect. They are not allowed to fire him. If he wins his court case, he could sue them. It's also not a sexual harassment charge, nor is it a criminal charge. Don't talk about things you know nothing about"

    I thought it'd be Eugene as he is literally the only person in the world who would defend Dorion, but saying Patrick Kane was innocent/ correcting AHL transactions reaaaallllly makes me want it to be Randy

    I agree with this. Yost typically only posts things to his blog when they don't meet TSN's journalistic standards. I'm skeptical.

    Oh OH. This is interesting. Account just went dark. Deleted?

    EDIT: Nope, think I'm wrong. Just the tweets linked above.
