The NHL's Ottawa Senators are one step closer to moving to a new arena in their home city. The National Capital Commission has accepted a recommendation to negotiate with franchise owner Eugene Melnyk's RendezVous LeBreton group to develop a large tract of land in Ottawa's downtown core. Melnyk says the decision ranks above his original purchase of the team. (Melnyk's proposal beat a bid by rival Devcore Canderel DLS Group to develop the 21.6 hectare site in Ottawa's core. The decision marks the start of negotiations toward a final agreement. If those talks fail, the NCC says it will start talks with Devcore.)
