Who is the worse owner? Melnyk or Katz?

Why doesn't Melnyk just shut his mouth, let his money do the talking and let the hockey people do their jobs in peace? You know, like most owners do?

One thing is for sure. A team owned by Katz will never face a team owned by Melnyk in the Stanley Cup... not sure if I want to finish that with "Final" or "Playoffs".

^ being as East meets West only in the finals, there is no difference at this time.

(For that thing that will not happen.)

Just so much wrong with Melnick's comments, but I think the worst of it is "the Senators’ current rebuild is a blueprint on how to bring the Stanley Cup home".

First, you've accomplished zero to this point, other than take a team from Cup finalist to the basement in 2 years. And second, even if a team does everything right, in a 31 team league, there are no guarantees for a cup.

Just say "we have a plan in place, and are fully committed, to get the team into cup contention status". Don't go spouting off like a moron that doesn't respect the intelligence of your audience.

Or, as someone else mentioned: just STFU

Looks like Melnyk got a dose of reality.

The president of hockey operations search has been humbling for Eugene Melnyk. Not only was he rejected by the top candidates, but he couldn’t even get a meeting with them. The latest moves on the business side indicates the organization is still below its season-ticket and corporate-sales targets, although the fact Nic Ruszkowski is staying on through the end of his contract indicates this change isn’t as nasty as some of the previous ones.

Ottawans truly hate Melnyk in a way I never saw in Calgary.

I guess the rest of the league had better start preparing to phone it in for those 5 years.

Spezza, Chara, Hoffman, Stone, Karlsson, Bishop, Duchene, Zibanejad, Dzingel, Foligno, Lehner, Turris, Brassard ...

They have are A+ at drafting and scouting talent, but F- at retaining their superstars.

It's never been nearly as toxic in Calgary. Not even close.

Why is this a comparison that would even come to mind? What Flames owner past or present has ever reached anywhere near the level of ass clownery that Melnyk has indulged in?

None.

The "Flamboyant" Nelson Skalbania bailed early (thankfully) in the franchise's history and it's been the same ownership group (rotating in and out partners). Remarkably stable, even in the lean years.
