Dude, as some of us have been saying for months, get used to the idea of Karlsson going.  Bobby Mac was on Vancouver radio this morning saying that he thinks Karlsson is getting dealt soon.

Ugh, that's terrible news. I still hold out (false) hope. Diddle.

I don't see how any of us can support this team next year if they let Karlsson walk. I won't be spending money on tickets, that's for sure. Screw you Melnyk, you piece of Dung.

Hoffman had to go, regardless. Marlee Hammond said "If only you knew how unsurprising this is" which implies that Caryk was *not* liked in the wives' room. Julie Turris also chimed in, supporting this. Wouldn't be a stretch to assume that at least some of them (wives) believe Caryk did this (as in not even doubting it); reasonable to believe that at least some players feel the same (certainly Karlsson does).

Ok, Hoffman is gone. But he only left after the allegations became public. We already know that the Sens organization knew about the online harassment/bullying early on and since a GM would likely have regular talks with his Captain it's not a leap to assume that he knew whom the Karlssons were suspecting. If he took it seriously he would have talked to other players for their input, including Hoffman. He should have had this settled a lot sooner. Since he didn't, there's a good chance he either didn't believe Karlsson or said something to the effect "Are you sure?" Good god, he might have even played the "Maybe Meinda is not thinking clearly because of what she went through". And maybe some of that is even true but the fact remains -- they knew and did not do anything until it came out.

And then there's the Randy Lee situation, the Melnyk situation*s*.

we'll see what happens this week and next. I don't believe anything said in the media at this time. Nobody had the scoop that Hoffman was being traded to SJ for example.

Same as we supported them when they let Chara go, when Heatley happened, when Alfie left

I'm starting to hate Dorion. I liked him at first, but Diddle you buddy. If you didn't know this was happening, you should have and you should have traded Hoffman the first time your franchise player came to you telling you there's dissension in the room.

And Diddle you Melnyk too. Eat Dung.

Heatley demanded a trade because he's an bunghole, Alfie left because both sides were stupid.  He was old anyway.  Chara was heartbreaking, but they didn't fully understand the cap.

This is a franchise player leaving because the owner is a Cussing bunghole.  Diddle! Ahhhhh!

EDIT: I'll always support the Sens, but I won't spend money on them until Melnyk is gone.

That said, I've switched to Bell's "good" package and might switch to "basic"; I don't think I have the Sports channels (or maybe I have TSN but not SNet). So I could be watching a lot fewer games come October. Maybe just the 2-minute YouTube highlights. Does that mean I'm not supporting the team?

Although if Stone gets the 'C' I might be getting a new jersey.

Stone the C?  I think it's Duchene, but you might be right.

It's fairly cursed anyway. Sad

But last night Dreger said that Hoffman's time in Ottawa was over.

TSN now has a subscription where you can pay $25/month and get TSN 1 thru 5. I am not positive if you also would get the regionally broadcast games (i.e. the Sens games), but it's an interesting option for us cord-cutters.

He’s still a Senator until he’s not. I will admit my take on the situation if I’m wrong.

Well in getting TSN now. Hmm just checked online listing and apparently "good" includes TSN 1-3-4-5 (don't see 2) and SNet East-Ontario-Pacific-West.

Wife will be happy as HGTV and TLC is also included. Since, Bravo and A&E but not Showcase.

The "good" package was only around $10-12 more than basic, and Crave TV is included do I save on that. It's a shame Showcase is gone, but Space is included (with Rogers you hey Space if you get HBO/TMN.

When did Dorion know.

Stone has 6 full years in pro (plus the assist on Soezza's goal in the playoffs before he was pro). So it's not like he's a rookie versus a grizzled vet. He'd better get the 'C' over a guy that was driven out of town by the team that drafted him, with further teammates throwing shade at him after he left.

Everyone knew back in November. He may not have known that Caryk was the prime suspect.
