I was a fan in the Bryden days:
We had excellent coaching
We had a fast, young, exciting team
We had an excellent GM that took care of business
Roy Mlakar was a bang-up ambassador for the team
As unstable as it was OFF the ice, the team hit its high-water mark ON the ice during that era. It was incredible classy and not a shred of drama.
P.S. Snapple is the bomb, I would have loved to have Snapple as a beverage choice at SBP.
IT"S A BUSINESS.
You don't control where you end up and you don't get to pick how it all works out.
The team needs to do what's best for the future of its assets and team.
The Ottawa Senators will still be here even if Fisher gets traded to the Islanders or Kings. Players will sign here because ownership will overpay to get them here and give then NTC.
Enough of the country-club attitude.
Treat players as numbers, contracts and assets.
Letting emotion and loyalty and so on interfere is very, very, very bad.
Too much irony in this post.
