With the divorce eating his pie (by 50%), he may need some financial calories to keep the Sens Cap numbers fluid with a chance to sign to the max if/when its warranted.

That could be part of it but i think the bigger issue is major hockey in the Gta does not word look at the Majors awful attendance even last year one of the best teams in the country and they were avg around 2500.

50%? There's no way, anyone with as much money as Melnyk wouldn't have a prenup.

He's long been interested in the 67s but I can't see Hunt selling now with OSEG finally getting off the ground.

I think Melynk fancies himself as the guy who would own every sports team in Ottawa.

They had terrible ticket options, which doesn't help. When the Majors were in the post-season you had to commit to full seasons' or you were SOL, basically. No one wants to pay that kind of money to see kids, heck the 67s have $10 tickets and they don't even sell out all their games.

Like what he's doing with the Sens cap-wise. Cheapter is <3. I'll support a team that is cheap and cuts corners a lot more than a cap team.

The 67s don't sell out but they have the biggest rink in the league and they are still one of the better markets for attendance as for Toronto it comes down to there is not a huge taste for major jr or any hockey besides nhl.

I don't think he's stupid if he doesn't have one. Who really goes into a marriage planning for it to fail? The concept of a prenup drives me nuts. By bringing one into the relationship, you're basically saying you have doubts and want to protect yourself. How is that a good way to go into a marriage?

Also, a prenup would only entitle Uncle Eugene to keep the assets he had before he got married. I'm sure he made the majority of his millions/billions after he was married, so all of that is divided evenly, unless they come to some sort of agreement.

I think he and his wife were married for a number of years, so there is still plenty to be divided, all of which are not protected by any prenuptual agreement.

Are you married?

He may not have one, a prenup, but he sure as hell has an insurance policcy that gives her a lump sum payment. That is what the big boys do. First, she doesn't want the company or shares...she wants the cash. He essentially buys her rights for a predetermined amount and she agrees to this while they are married.

Prenups don't really work as people think unless you were filthy rich prior to marriage, but you always lose the home!

Agreed. I hate people with home insurance as well. Who buys a house planning to have it burn down..losing all your things and leaving your life in shambles?

Dont even get me started on life insurance.

I hope you're being sarcastic because I can't imagine that you are so dumb that you can't put a distinction between a house and a marriage.

A house is an investment, so everyone has an insurance plan to protect that investment.
A marriage is (supposed to be) a lifelong commitment to be with a person, through good times and bad, sickness and health...and so on. If someone is willing to make that commitment to someone, why is there a need for a prenup? Why make this sort of commitment to someone but then state that you have doubts so it doesn't work, you want to keep your stuff?

To me, a prenup is counter-intuitive to what a marriage stands for.

Spoken like someone who has little to lose. Prenups are there to protect those who have a lot going into marriage and a generally pretty generous to both parties (Look at tiger woods' prenup). Someone with Eugene's wealth would be crazy not to enter marriage without a prenup, assuming he was filthy rich when he got married and not after.

What if your spouse cheats on you and then when you get divorced they take half of everything you've worked your life to get?

Didn't he buy and move the Miss Ice Dogs while owning the St. Mike's Majors just so he could move them to his prefered destination? Seems like a lot of effort just to sell a few years later.
