"It's not about individuals anymore. It's not about 1 player, 2 players or 3 players because you're not gong to win."

Hmm, I wonder what three players he could be talking about.

Just awful. Melnyk desperately needs somebody around who can tell him no.

Ugh, I couldn't even sit through that.

Somewhere, Bryan Murray is doing a facepalm.

Me neither. Other than demonstrating some passion and commitment to the team - and maybe we'd rather he didn't - it says nothing.

Nor am I pleased to hear they interviewed Shawn Simpson for the AGM post. That's a joke.

Yzerman is leaving Tampa for Detroit (eventually?). You have to think that will take Tampa out of the Karlsson running.

Obviously Yzerman is coming home to Nepean next summer. Stevie Y will save us all.

I wonder if he knows that his autographed poster went missing from the Prescott a few years back. When we asked our waiter, he shrugged and said "Doug's cousin" probably made off with it.

That is so typical of Doug's cousin.

Have it on good authority that both Monica Caryk and Melinda Karlsson have a cousin named Doug.

Ian Mendes being honest "critical" about Senators management phase is over. Here's his report about Dorion briefing the press about the plan.

No hockey or sports experience but at least she lives in Barbados.

A reminder of what happened with the last Chief Marketing Officer:

She's clearly behind that Melnyk 10/15 video.

Some stuff from Friedman's 31 Thoughts. https://www.sportsnet.ca/hockey/nhl/31-thoughts-examining-erik-karlsson-trade-fallout/

1. Ottawa’s interviews for its vacant assistant GM position have included Chris O’Hearn (formerly Arizona), Claude Loiselle (formerly Islanders and Toronto), Brad Holland (formerly Toronto), internal candidates (Jim Clark and Tim Pattyson believed to be among them) and local TSN Radio host Shawn Simpson. Dorion indicated a hire is coming.

There was, at some point in the summer, contact between Eugene Melnyk and former Vancouver GM Mike Gillis. A couple of sources indicated they heard Gillis and Melnyk discussed a job, but couldn’t come to an agreement. (Gillis declined to comment.) Thursday night, via email, Melnyk denied it, saying “no chance” it went that far.


Gillis was also Canucks president, so maybe Melnyk is actually thinking of hiring a new Senators President? Assuming he doesn't have pay him or her a salary of course.

Did Mike not run the Canucks into a dumpster out West? I find the Canucks history hard to track. They've had some office turnover there and they've been stuck in the old Ottawa we're good, no we're bad routine for the last decade.

He actually has the same experience than Brisebois when he became ass. GM to Bob Gainey.

But Brisebois was mentored by sports law genius and serial rapist Marcel Aubut.

One cannot replicate that type of experience.

Can you send Mark Stone to Montreal? The Habs traded away anyone who can score a goal this summer and I think Mark could really help out.

Thanks.
