Isn't Melnyk rumoured to have flipped and read the riot act after the loss to the Leafs in the playoffs years ago?

Was that the year Martin was fired and Lalime traded?  I can't really remember, to be honest.

You know, with not too many games remaining, there's no question that the thought of getting Mike Brodeur back was in effect. I'd say what the hell with it and bring him back. Let him play at least the last 7 games, seeing as the Sens could afford to lose just 5 or 6 more before being bumped out of the playoffs. If we look like this now and just clinch a spot, we definitely do not deserve to even be there. It'll 2008 revisited and we all know how that ended. I hope there will be major changes to be made come June 30th. I'd start with Kelly, not re-signing Cullen, trading Lee and much more to come.

Sorry, Brodeur is still injured and to tell the truth he has been anything but stellar since returning from Ottawa.  Lee needs to go.  Remember people I am a Ottawa Sens fan just as much as I am a B-Sens fan and Lee is horrendous.  Right now in Bingo, he could give a crap about playing here which has earned him a spot on the bench for most of the game.  I have yet to find anyone here who thinks Lee is any good.   Even earlier in the year he was horrible.  I know he is basically all Ottawa can afford right now, but please find some sort of trade.

Trading Lee away for any draft pick is an insult. I'd trade him for future considerations. We'll see then what the future holds.

When did Brodeur get injured and what type of injury is it?  I think I missed that 'memo'!   :smily677:

Bryan Murray did a press scrum this morning and spoke of Melnyk's call to him and subsequent to Clouston and players yesterday.  Murray said that he had told Melnyk that perhaps a call to the coach and players that "he felt he knew well enough to talk comfortably with them" could be helpful in letting them all know that he has faith in them and he knows they can turn it around, etc.  It was disclosed that Alfie, Phillips, Spezza and Fisher were the players called as well as Clouston and he (Bryan) had spoken to them all after they got their calls and he said they were all appreciative of his support, etc.  A reporter asked if Murray knew/thought Melnyk would have called Kovalev and Murray's response was "no...he did not call him as he does not know him well enough".

I kind of thought that Melnyk was not the "reading of the riot act" type.

Last weekend during a game.  Abductor strain.   I don't believe it's the first injury either, since he's been back.

I've felt that way the moment that Ottawa drafted him instead of Staal.  I remembered his performance at the World Juniors and just shook my head when Ottawa called his name out.

I was the one pushing the idea of trading Volchenkov at the deadline because we weren't a cup contending team. I was also the one saying it was stupid to trade 2 extremely valuable 2nd round picks for UFAs. What exactly are you trying to convey to me that I haven't already mentioned many times?

Why would you question me for bringing up the topic of rebuilding then? 

Wheh.
