    Haha, that's hilarious. There's probably a large contingent of fans taking their sweet time only to arrive late, kinda like Spezza on the back-check

    Man, why can't the Sens just trade a player without all the BS happening..... degrading his value all the time.....

    hard re enough to trade a guy like Spezza....now the league knows they are forced to trade him. He might just as well have defended a trade like Heatley.

    A rally that nobody knows about, on a nice day, on a long weekend, during the Habs playoff game? Hard to believe that it wasn't better attended. I just can't see where the organizers went wrong...

    Didn't they have a poorly-attended rally for Jason Spezza back in 2010?

    Ah yes, they did.

    Did a little search on the Red Scarf Union. They have a web site and according to their Facebook page over 1900 members.
    They have together since 2007. Seems like today's turnout pretty much says what Ottawa really thinks about their Captain.
    FWIW I did hear the local TSN radio station talk about the rally earlier in the week so it's not like people didn't know about it.

    Their Mission Statement:
    We are the RSU, a group of fans who are devoted to their team like nobody else. It is our mission to have Sens fans recognised throughout the league as the best fans in the NHL. We want to be the envy of every other teams fan base. We will take our arena back – This is our town, our team, not Toronto’s, nor Montreal’s… This is OTTAWA. When an opposing fan is loud, we will be louder. When they boo our captain, we drown them out with cheers. We wear our colours with pride at all times. We will erase the notion that Ottawa’s fan base is fickle and have no heart. Ottawa is privileged to be the home of the NHL’s best and we will display our pride for all to see. Our love for the boys in RED is strong and we’ll support them through thick and thin. We will be strong, passionate and united as one behind our Ottawa Senators. This is Hockey Country and we are it’s proud citizens.

    If you seriously believe that people in Ottawa know about the Red Scraf Union, then I have some prime swamp land to sell you in Florida. The only place I've heard of this event is here on Dobber.

    I'm in Ottawa and I've never heard of Red Scarf Union. Didn't Phoenix have a rally to save the team and less than 30 fans showed up? Spezza should just say trade me and move to a place where he would be more appreciated. To heck with Ottawa, I'm sure they'll find a suitable replacement via free agency (that would be sarcasm because very few players are likely to pinpoint Ottawa as their destination of choice).

    RSu is a ******ed obnoxious group of fans. They picked a stupid date and organized this thing terribly. I just laugh at them and their rally. Embarrassing for them. Holding a rally for a millionaire athlete who doesn't even live here is just dumb.
