 Dorians first move of the summer is to fire the guy who may have replaced him at one time. Self preservation at its finest.

I didn't know anything about this accrued debt, that seems to me it could be a problem.

"Postmedia’s James Bagnall believed that the franchise had accrued $250 million worth of debt. If that is the case, it is hard to imagine that this franchise will be able to move forward in its current state. After being refinanced with presumably high-interest rates, without any significant revenue boosts coming into the fold, I just don’t understand how this current group can stabilize this franchise and help realize the long-term vision of an arena at LeBreton Flats." This is from a Graeme Nichols article

Yeah, he did have that liver transplant a few years ago and lost weight following that. I can't remember when was the last time I saw him, but he was more frail looking.  Going through something like that ages you. Not sure if his recent issues were related to that or not.  Definitely unexpected.

Ian Mendes wrote a fair and honest piece on Melnyk this morning in The Athletic and here’s something I forgot completely about and did get a chuckle from this:

(When some suggested the Senators should rebuild their team during a downward spiral in the 2008-09 season, Melnyk responded with one of the most colourful quotes of his tenure in Ottawa.

“Anybody that says we should blow up this organization should get their own bomb and blow themselves up,” Melnyk told a news conference.)

He was 62. I thought he was in his 70's.

So my understanding so far of the Dadonov contract situation....

He had a modified NTC. Submitted his list to Ottawa prior to the required deadline. Vegas was not on the list, so he was traded to them. They were aware of the NTC, but were told that no list had been provided, which would have made the clause invalid.

Dadonov's agent has provided proof that the list was indeed submitted to Ottawa on time. So yep..... this appears to be a colossal f-up on Ottawa's part.
