MELNYK UNHAPPY: The CP's B.H. McKenna reported Senators Owner Eugene Melnyk Friday took RIM co-CEO Jim Balsillie "to task" and called himself the "victim of a Balsillie 'cheap shot.'" Melnyk, who Thursday issued a "lengthy statement responding to the latest court filings on behalf of Balsillie," said that Balsillie "simply isn't playing by the rules." Melnyk: "Yes, it's etiquette, but it's more than that. It's about fair play." Melnyk said that he has "spoken with Balsillie twice" since the court filing, but Melnyk "dismissed his response as 'unsatisfactory'" (CP, 8/21). Sources close to Balsillie said that he "never meant to embarrass Melnyk by bringing up his fines with the Ontario Security Commission." A source said that Melnyk's name was "brought up 'reluctantly' and only as a means 'to show context into how (Balsillie) has been portrayed by the NHL." The source: "We don't feel character is an issue at all" (TORONTO STAR, 8/22). In Toronto, Steve Simmons wrote among the "really stupid things Jim Balsillie has done in his attempt to secure an NHL franchise, nothing was dumber than taking a pot shot" at Melnyk, who was "one of Balsillie's few allies around" (TORONTO SUN, 8/23).
