Marc Methot Wants To Stay In Ottawa But Do The Senators Want Him?

from Don Brennan of the Ottawa Sun, The Senators and Marc Methot are just $300,000 per year apart in negotiations on a contract extension. It seems to be either a very workable gap or an excuse for Ottawa to solve its blueline logjam by trading the veteran defenceman. Methot is beginning to think the latter.

Eugene Melnyk Speaks on Toronto Airwaves: Lockout, Money, Expectations

Whenever Ottawa Senators owner Eugene Melnyk makes an appearance on the Fan 590‘s ‘Prime Time Sports’, it’s always a relatively interesting affair – mostly because the hosts do an exceptional job poking, prodding or manipulating the owner to go off on tangents, say over the top things or riff on whatever’s been bothering him lately.
