Cost Per Pointcast, Ep. 100: A Final Farewell ft. Ian Mendes

On the final episode of the Cost Per Pointcast, Ian Mendes joins the show to discuss the passing of Eugene Melnyk and what the upcoming summer could look like for the Senators

Well folks, here it is. I’m no stranger to online farewells, and although I’ll still be writing at Silver Seven of course, today is a farewell to the Cost Per Pointcast. I’ve been doing the Cost Per Pointcast since 2016, and it’s crazy to think of all the things that have happened for the team and myself personally since then. This episode is #100, which is a milestone I always knew I wanted to get to. However, it’s time for me to say goodbye to the podcast.

For this finale, a friend of the show Ian Mendes was incredibly dedicated to join me, as he was powering up his computer through a generator while the rest of his power remains down. Ian is always fantastic to have on the show, and this time was no different. We get into a lot of different topics including:

  • Eugene Melnyk’s passing and his legacy
  • Mendes’ article with Katie Strang and Dan Robson about Melnyk
  • What the Ottawa Senators could do at the draft
  • Potential trade options in the off-season
  • What this team needs in order to make the playoffs
  • And more! /
