This is a good start. Wildly different rankings in some cases, but that doesn’t matter when the draft is a year away. The Summer Series is going on right now and it is a real good scouting tournament for some. Cam Robinson is the best amateur scout in my opinion with the best published articles. He is at the tournament now and will be penning his first article soon. I will send it to you when it is out.

Also, I put more stock in scouts that watch live games over the ones that don’t. Cam does that.

The Blue Jays are reminiscent of what I think the Sens could be next season. Start the team with a bunch of vets, trade them off, and let the kids take over and play some fun baseball. So many good story lines in Toronto right now. They suck but they're playing some exciting baseball and starting to win some games. Hope the Sens follow suit but don't inject the youth until February or so. Let the vets bring the team down and end the season on a high.

I don't think there's many Sens fans that are against having a sucky team if it's full of promising young players, which is essentially where the Sens are at. The problem area lies with our ability to retain these young players, and that's directly attributable to the owner and his lack of money. Why be excited for the future with Melnyk still at the helm?

I think he waits for the Seattle cash-out or for the right deal to come. He won't be around to pay Chabot, Tkachuk, Batherson, etc their big money.

Or he's there for another 2-3 years while all these guys are playing out their ELC's which is likely the case.

Absolutely but he could also figure that money In a sale without having to pay for he current losses.
The problem in the mean time is playing resignin with the team. They won’t walk away but we might not see any l’ont term deal being signed.

He can only sell it for what the market will allow. Right now the team isn't worth much.

I think any NHL team is worth ~ 600 million.

From what I read, he was offered far less than that only a few short months ago.

Wasn’t the offer a little north of 450?

I mean, business wise, you can’t blame the guy for not wanting to sell when he could get more for it.

It’s wether he can still operate the franchise and for how long that will decide when he can sell.

You’d think it would work to Bettman’s and the league’s advantage to keep values high and what they sell for.

I could imagine that Melnyk wants 600 for his franchise but reasonably, he’s probably not getting that. The troubled franchises of the league like Carolina and Florida did not get sold for that much or close to it.

I wouldn't sell until I got what Seattle paid for their franchise - and of the story.

That's probably why he hadn't sold. Dont cheap out here cirque de Soleil

You don’t think he could say. “This is the price of the franchise and this is what Seattle is going to pay us. X+Y=Z. Pay me Z.” That’s done all the time when doing valuation on business. Minus the discount rate. Trust me. I doubt that the Seattle money is what could hold up the sale. The right price is likely what’s holding it up.

Yeah, that's what I meant. I wouldn't sell until I was offered what Seattle paid for their franchise
