Michael Andlauer Furious He Inherited Senators Draft Pick Forfeiture
The Senators have dominated the NHL headlines today. It’s not exactly good news when I say that. Ottawa has been stripped of a first round pick and general manager Pierre Dorion was fired for his actions that caused that. Michael Andlauer, the new owner of the Sens, is furious about the chain of events that’s gone on today.
“Maybe they didn’t want to disrupt [it] to make sure the seller got the best price possible,” Andlauer said, per Daily Faceoff’s Frank Seravalli.
“You’ll have to ask the NHL why it took a year. Why I inherited this is beyond me. There’s no reason to last this long,” he said.
I mean… the guy does have a point. Shane Pinto’s suspension was sketchy given the fact that the NHL couldn’t prove that he bet on games. We’re also talking about a trade that went down at the 2021 NHL Trade Deadline. 2021… The NHL should have had a decision far before today. Did the NHL really sweep this under the rug until the same of the team on purpose? It sure seems like that.
The positive news for Andlauer is that he got that idiot Pierre Dorion out of the building. Something that should have happened a long time ago. Dorion has been mismanaging this roster for several years now. If anything, this could be a blessing in disguise. If this gave Andlauer the juice to can Dorion, he should thank his lucky stars.
