Can't believe how quickly this went to shit. They were supposed to find a way to contend while they still had Karlsson. Now they're forced to kick start a rebuild.

They'll probably just do another "re-tool" and keep Karlsson when they should be pulling the plug. Of course I'm not sure at this point that even Melnyk is calling all the shots now.

Does Melnyk simply not fucking understand that up isn't the only direction that a team can take every single year?

I think from what we know about Melnyk he is very much the embodiment of willful ignorance. And boy is he ever willful.

Not surprising that he's a Trump supporter.

One good thing in Ottawa this season is Chabot finally grabbing a full-time spot. He's no Karlsson, but if they need to trade him, Chabot will have to become a no. 1.

According to Friedman's 31 Thoughts (article AND podcast) Dorion went into the locker room soon after their dismal showing against the Blues and confronted his players, and apparently they gave it right back. So I guess it went better than the Cleveland Cavaliers' recent closed-door meeting, but that ain't sayin' much.

Also, I'm told Karlsson made some pointed comments to the press recently but can't find the link.

Lastly, it looks like there is a tentative deal in place for the Sens to move downtown. Hopefully by the time the team moves in, Melnyk will be long, long gone.
