Appropriating someone else's history for one's own gain is usually rather odious, but the Senators' situation is really unique. Killion is correct in that the capital region truly is the cradle of the game, and for the current Sens to ignore this rich heritage because of corporate identity cconcerns (an "us and them" corporate divide) is a disservice to the community.
I've not been to the recently re-named Canadian Tire Centre. Is there anything inside or around the building which recognizes the Valley's historical connection to the game? Anything akin to, say, Buffalo's French Connection statue or Sabreland museum? Good sense tells me that there must be something other than a photo of helmetless Brad Marsh chugging along, but I'm not sure. Any evidence on display of the Rideau Rebels? Haligonian James Creighton's Ottawa years?
