Letter: Sens restrictive playoff ticket sales unsportsmanlike

I do hope the National Hockey League takes note of this in point of fact unsportsmanlike conduct by the Ottawa Senators management in limiting which Canadian hockey fans’ money it prefers.

It echoes the unhappy sense of senatorial entitlement we are discovering among their not unusual namesakes up on Parliament Hill.

I also hope that Les Montreal Canadiens management does no longer retaliate and as a substitute sticks to the cultured conduct, which, for more than a century has helped make it one of the most winningest organizations in professional sport.
