Boy, what could he have said this time?
Eugene Melnyk spoke out against the lockout on Wednesday, expressing his hope that the two sides can come to an agreement and start playing hockey.
Bryan Murray signed a three-year contract extension with the Ottawa Senators on Friday. The fate of this team is now, without a doubt, on his shoulders.
We haven't heard from all that many NHL owners over the past few months with regards to the Coyotes case, but Melnyk was on the Fan 590 here in Toronto last night and offered those thoughts above and more on Jim Balsille. Some interesting stuff in there, including the fact that Richard Rodier was on the scene in 2003 talking about buying and moving the Senators.
Ottawa Senators owner Eugene Melnyk has a funny way of expressing himself sometimes, like when he suggests anybody that thinks the best solution to his team's problems is to blow the whole thing up and start again should find a bomb and blow them selves up.
And he's right. It really isn't necessary to start from scratch.
What the Senators need is really quite simple: Proven goaltending, a better defence and secondary scoring.
