Eugene Melnyk, Ottawa Sens owner.
Susan Sherring has a great scoop in her blog On the City, From the Burbs about former Ottawa Senators star Daniel Alfredsson – he thinks the team needs a new owner. And so does Mayor Jim Watson, he told Sherring.
Alfredsson was the “surprise” guest at Sunday’s campaign kickoff for Watson – offering his support as the mayor seeks a third term in office. Turns out – according to Alfredsson – both he and Watson are hoping the Ottawa Senators get a new team owner – and can say goodbye to its present owner Eugene Melnyk. Alfredsson made the admission in an interview with On the City, From the Burbs at Watson’s campaign kickoff. “We’ve talked a lot, we’ve talked about the future of the Senators and of its ownership and we agree,” he said.
