Not sure that I get the details but the optics are nothing but bad here. Unless this is another step towards Melynk being made to sell the team.

Well, there you have it. Melnyk is unable to pay his gambling debts because he was just too damn great at gambling.

I just dont see how the Seattle money matters. I mean everyone knows it's coming and they would know the exact amount he'll get so why wouldnt you sell now for the franchise value plus that Seattle payment? I mean it's too easy. Whomever buys gets their money back whenever that comes through.

The seattle money goes straight to franchise value like today. It's the same value now as in a year.

I could see melnyk keeping this team for 10 years. I just dont know. He seems like such a dick he'll hold on just to piss people off. Once the billboards went up I think that strengthened his hold - simply because hes a total dick. He doesn't want to look like he "lost".

However the only hope I have is that there are A LOT of rumours of his financial distress. Like a lot. There's just too much smoke for there not to be a fire burning.

We'll see. But I dont think the seattle payment matters. Hes already made that money as his franchise today is up that upcoming payment already. It's there now on paper.

I think the problem is that Eugene Melnyk wants to pay him the full value of an NHL franchise and assume the team/arena debt.

Going by the Seattle franchise fee, the value of a NHL franchise is $650 million. Arm-chair analysts on the internet have speculated that the Senators/Canadian Tire Centre have $200+ million in total debt. Elliot Friedman reported last year that Melnyk rejected an offer of $400 million. So my baseless speculation based on no real evidence is that the potential buyer offered the value of an NHL franchise minus the assumed debt.

More and more chatter out there this year from outside of the area. Word seems to be getting out.

Move over Dan Snyder and James Dolan—when it comes to pettiness, suspect accounting, shameless moxie, and team mismanagement, Ottawa Senators owner Eugene Melnyk might be the best franchise destroyer on the continent

The NCC released their new Lebreton Plan today for public consultation today. They left space for an event centre, but the reserved plot doesn't have room to build any addition condos or offices to subsidize development.

"Event Center" is the best Ottawa name for a new home for the Sens.

I also believe its the best possible name for this board. Rename it people!

While Little contends he was essentially fired for angrily swearing at Melynk — which generated frustrated amusement among many Senators fans who often blame Melnyk for the team’s rocky performance — the Senators said it was not such a shallow decision.

After the argument and during an investigation into Little’s behaviour, the team discovered that Little’s former spouse published online accounts alleging abusive behaviour during her marriage, the National Post has learned.

A team spokesman said there was a direct link between the Valentine’s Day argument with Melnyk, an investigation into Little it sparked, Smith’s allegations and his dismissal.

“The Ottawa Senators can confirm knowledge of the blog post, which was discovered following Mr. Little’s Feb. 14 outburst and as a result of an ensuing investigation into his behaviour, leading up to his dismissal. It was one of the issues that gave the organization grave concern,” said Dan Gagnier, spokesman for the Ottawa Senators in a statement to the National Post when asked about Smith’s articles.


It's weird that the Senators only started investigating Little after his argument with Melnyk. Almost as if they went looking for a reason to fire him.

“While there were signs of insecurity and controlling tendencies early in our relationship, I told myself the good far outweighed the bad,” Lara Smith wrote in an article published Aug. 28, 2019.


And the ex-wife's article was posted online over four months before Little was hired. So was Little never vetted? Or did the vetting process not include a rudimentary Google search? Or did the Senators just ignore the spousal abuse allegations and hire him anyways?

Or maybe Little was vetted by the same people who vetted Randy Lee.

HAHAHA




The charity prides itself in supporting youth programs right across the region and believes that such support is the primary reason the community supports the charity in return.

But the team’s owner wants a good portion of the money directed to other initiatives, including his own pet project – organ donation awareness. Suffice to say the argument has become nasty.


:paulrus:

Another sore point has been the high rent Melnyk charges the foundation. It’s in the hundreds of thousands of dollars annually, I’m told. Charging rent is not believed to be a common practice by other sports franchises with charitable foundations.
