Talk about darkening a brand on what was supposed to be a great weekend. Go Habs Go ce soir!
His timing was terrible but I get why he would think it. Not selling out during a Stanley Cup playoff run is crazy.

Clearly the timing of his remarks might have been better, but when I read them the first thought was 'who is he really speaking to ?'..... Owners are people, they get frustrated just like most everyone can at times, but owners are very media savvy, so there is more to those comments in my mind.

Lots of fans are angry with him because of the remarks - he isn't well liked to begin with. If there is more to the comments, it seems like he is the only one who knows what that is because the Ottawa media, fans, and Bettman were surprised with the comments.

Lots of fans calling for Melnyk to sell the team. Sometimes you need to be careful what you ask for....

I would only ask: Surprised with the comments, or surprised with the timing of the comments ?

I am not surprised about the comments, timing is another thing though.....


There is nobody in the NHL that advocates him selling the team. He has deep pockets, and can afford to maintain this team.....meaning team stability, which is a big priority for the league.

For people in Ottawa it's a mix, it seems fans were both surprised by the comments and by the timing of them.

Bettman cooled things off with his comments which was a good move.

You are so right.., he was sending non-subtle messages to the NCC and the Lebreton Flats negotiations...

Thanks.....

Great atmosphere, but losing as we did is an ongoing issue.





*I think Mason Cole will be available in the 4th round.
