Shame he can't sign our best players now though. A team with Duchene, Stone and Karlsson with the nucleus of youth would have been fun.
Or.... it’s just the same old lip service that’s gotten us here. I remember Melnyk saying he’d spend when we were competing. We make it to the final four, lose methot and the extra guys we picked up. Instead of going out there and spending to get players who could help us maintain that success he relies on cheap rookies and they just turn turris into duchene.
That is NOT spending when the time is right. Melnyk is a Dung machine. A fraud of an owner. He’d been better off never saying anything at all.
I swear nothing will go right in Ottawa till he’s gone.
