    Thought the same thing. It was perfect, the panel didn't even have time to carefully craft their delicate questions for this bozo, so they just spewed anger. Hope the questioning continues this way going forward.

    At the very least he has lackeys reading these boards to garner a sense of fanbase sentiment. It would be remiss to not examine these boards from a marketing standpoint.

    I listened to the interview, and I don't think there is anything he could say that would not garner a different response. Quite frankly. The moment he opened his mouth, daggers are being sharpened.

    Cmon Coladin, you can't defend this man, the answers he gave made the daggers come out.

    There is no spinning this interview, try as you may, or as you were instructed but, it was one of the worst in franchise history.

    So what he said, and how he said it, has nothing to do with the reaction?

    Seriously?

    I'm not spinning anything. It is a fact that if you are listening to someone you hate, or their position, you will not really hear what he is saying. In my business, this is very apparent when someone is already in a negative state of mind , before they speak, that it will not be given a fair chance.

    Like many who were upset that Melnyk released that statement in Toronto. No one believed it. But they will complain that he said it in Toronto anyways.

    Look, they have made their bed. I get that. If you were to have Cyril Leeder say for what Ruz said, word for word, would the reaction be different?

    I didn't like how he kept saying "to put it in simple terms", over and over...like we aren't dumb. But the meat and potatoes of it, I am not sure what all the fuss is about. But that also boils down to my legal background, and how I listen to things.

    The whole interview came across as smug and arrogant.

    At this point working for the Senators is taking the job of defending Melnyck instead of advocating for the excellence of the team.

    Rudcowski is a good guy, he cares. He’s not a hockey person, I don’t even think he was a fan or is today, his stats regurgatation is complete non-sense. and I don’t think it’s normal for someone in his position to defend his suprior.

    Rudcowski mentioned 6 times in the first 3 minutes ‘the rebuild message’ so it’s clear that message from the Sens isn’t getting out if the CFO has to continually remind everyone what the plan is.

    Rudcowski pumping Melnycks tires as a businessman and questioning the fan pessimism is exactly why the relationship is broken: in essence he is saying ‘he’ll get rich off of this, he’s good at at” and that’s why we hate Melnyck, he’s here to profit off is us from his Toronto office and we are trying to squeeze him out.

    Anyways, Rudcoski has been given a plum job from an office in Paris so of course he’ll kiss the ring. He was in charge of a French Company so hearing complaints is probably Rudcoski feeling that’s Sens-Army is just complainy as he had in France, but it’s actually he opposite, we are an underdog mentality market and Melnyck is the bully, he has the relationship completely misinterpreted - and it’s because he doesn’t know the city. Same with Melnyck. So they have that blind spot/ arrogance in common and we feel that. Rudcoski intentions are real but misguided, Melnycks intentions are ego and straight up stupidity and arrogance

    I have heard him speak on about 5 different occasions and not once have I come to this conclusion.

    I've made a career in customer service, and he deserves the criticism. There are ways to handle sensitive topics, and he completely threw out the book on how to go about it.

    That’s fine. We can differ on that. He’s trying to rationalize Sens fans passion, a passion he doesn’t understand or feel. He’s looking at this from polls, data the opinion of a psychotic owner.

    I had no chance to be in a negative head space, his appearance was completely unplanned and right before, the panel was ripping on Melnyk. TBH, that made me mor relaxed and excited to hear from this COO clown, that is until he opened his mouth.

    Assuming someone like Cyril Leeder would even say something like that in the first place, word for word, is kind of preposterous, and a textbook example of begging the question.

    I get that Ruszkowski was in a tough spot, but excusing away his answers because "fans are upset" ignores literally the entirety of everything he actually said.

    I'm sorry Col, but that's a poor analysis.

    Yes. Prickly. But I also found a great deal of information, not focusing on the matter of fact style of talking.

    What specific, accurate information did you find? Would you mind detailing it, because I don't hear any.

    Another factor Rudcoskwi is facing is the compassion we have for Leeder. Unfair, but until he can shake the Melncyk defender label, he’ll have to live with it.

    He really shouldn’t of said Melnyck is a good business man because good business men produce legacies, and the other guys just make a profit. That will haunt him for a while, but you can’t work for the Sens unless you join the cult of ‘Melncyk is a saviour’ dialogue - and that will never fly in this town.

    Rudcowski, if you want a break down of how to get through to the fans, PM me. You have to pay for the lunch tho.

    I did not have a problem with his comment on the pre game show.

    Sometimes the cold hard facts are unpleasant to hear, but better than hearing nothing at all.

    He did point out, that every thing that was communicated in the statement that was aired during the game, in Toronto, had already been made public to the local Ottawa media last fall, and in the three town halls held last year he made this point and directed it to @ianmendes as he was there, and did not dispute it.

    Perhaps @ianmendes could clarify if this was true or not.






    Loved when Roy Mlakar was President and CEO, should never have let him go, when they did.

    Mlakar and Leeder gave you the impression they were caretakers Of the TEAM, Rudcoski gives you the impression he is the caretaker of Melncyks ego.

    You didn't see a problem with the actual content of the information he was providing?

    His name will never appear on the Cup so the spelling is irrelevant

    I don't think Cyril has been in this type of position, to be fair. He had it relatively easy compared to what this guy signed up for. But Cyril was very clearly a company man, and kissed the ring as Tuna eloquently put it lol. He would have had Melnyk's back as this COO did. To suggest otherwise also begs the question.

    I'm sorry you find the analysis poor, but I just don't think people can listen well when they have "Won't Get Fooled Again" in the background, or "Killing in the Name" in the background haha.
