Eugene Melnyk is not just the owner of the Ottawa Senators, he’s the owner who put together a forensic investigation to try to prove that Matt Cooke intentionally cut the achilles of Erik Karlsson with his skate. He’s a bit out there, and a lot involved.
He also doesn’t seem to get how social media works, given the following tweet, which I’m sure launched 10,000 fire-packed tweets back in his direction.
Some tweets we get from #Pens fans are profanity filled. That’s classless – it’s just a game. You are embarassing your city, team & players.

The Penguins and Senators start their playoff series tomorrow night. This seems like the perfect way to kick it off.
