usually i would agree with you shabbs because melnyk has been a little too vocal for our team for the past year but this was an attack against him basillie deliberately mentioned melnyk that is considered a personal attack and he has to defend himself from personal attacks or other business people may look at him as a push over despite it being a NHL issue it would reflect on him personally in the business world and melnyk had no worry especially since he could easily assume the NHL would back him
^^ agreed. This has little to do with the sens as a whole and much more to do with attacking Melnyk's character. Not to mention that Balsilie is basically also guilty of shoddy business practices; its the nature of the beast. Nobody that has gotten ahead in life had done it 100% "legit" no matter what they say.
