Creative solutions for disappointing times

The Sens are in deep shit. The team likely won't make the playoffs this year and some poor decisions off the ice have turned off many fans. As we all know, desperate times call for desperate measures. After a slump in the music industry, selling music has taken a strange left-turn. Yes, it's a phrase I never thought I would utter, but the Ottawa Senators should take a lesson from Nine Inch Nails and get creative--selling not only tickets, but the services of players.

I now present the Senators new pricing scheme. It's not cheap, but I would pay a lot of money to punch Martin Gerber in the stomach.
