Columbus should pick their core and move anyone they can to acquire picks and young players.
they should be good on the blue line with Johnson, Wiz, Murray, Nikitin and Erixon. they have Johansen, Foligno, Dubinsky, Anisimov and Dorsett up front plus a few young guys. everyone else i'd make available for picks/prospects.
that would include at least Brassard (they ruined him), Umberger, Tyutin, Aucoin (deadline) and Mason.
Their blue line is hilarious.
Commenting on how to fix c-bus is like pretending you know what's going on as you rubberneck a freight train that's smashed into a UFO that was towing the Titanic....
Can they relegate C-bus to the AHL and promote Norfolk? As wacky as the promotion/relegation business is with the soccer leagues it almost makes sense at some levels. Columbus is so bad that a stint in the minors might help them haha
What is the Bluejackets record in 2012-2013? I have not checked the sports news. As I am reading the posts it seems to me that they are in the middle of the season and they have zero wins and the worst defense in the league.
What is amazing is that the CBA must have been resolved and I missed it. How are the Kings doing?
IMO, CBUS should fire his ass now, hire Hextall (if he wants to go...which I'm not sure he does) and start over with a rebuild. They should NOT being doing was Calgary is attempting to do for example.
As to Hextall: I think he wants to wait for Homer to fail in Philly....which I think will be sooner rather than later.
that's not to say that Howson shouldn't be fired - he should be. he's done far worse things to deserve being fired than the Nash trade.
