“I am trying to [buy the Senators], it’s very expensive, so I need a partner with really deep pockets … I need a sugar mommy or a sugar daddy,” Reynolds joked.
In all seriousness, Reynolds noted that he needs a “consortium,” which he called the “fancy way of saying” he needs a much wealthier person to assist him.
Reynolds is a Vancouver native but also lived in Ottawa and “spent a long time” in Vanier, a “little town outside of Ottawa.”

The actor, alongside Rob McElhenney, is a co-owner of a fifth-tier soccer club in England, Wrexham AFC.
Forbes estimates that the Senators are valued at around $525 million — the late Eugene Melnyk purchased the franchise in 2003 for $92 million.
The Senators are currently in last place in the Atlantic Division in the Eastern Conference, earning just eight points (4-7-0), and have lost their last five games.
