Lots of Stuff

I think I have decided that on Sundays I am going to just make it a day where I highlight what went on in the week...that way I don't really have to talk about much...I can just highlight it. I am lazy...I know this.

  • Dave King is interested in the Columbus Blue Jackets General Manager Position. He was our Coach from 2000 - 2003 when he was fired. He has never been a General Manager in the NHL but according to a Blue Jackets Official, "He should have been a GM 10 years ago, but he wanted to keep coaching. Nobody knew the league better than Dave King and nobody had a better grip on the talent in Europe at the time. It would take him some time to get up to speed on the game -- he's been away for a few years now -- but he'd catch up quick." King was fired basically because he and MacLean got into over Klesla. King thought Klesla needed some time in the minors MacLean had other plans.
  • Howson met with Priest and the owners and according to Portzline if things went well he could be hired this week. My take on Howson is any man who would have any part of the Ryan Smyth trade....I don't want. I don't want anyone who would trade away our heart and soul which in our case is Rick Nash. And, apparently I'm not the only one in Blue Jackets Nation to feel that way.
  • Pascal Leclaire will be in Columbus later this month to test his knee. If things don't go well Columbus could be looking at getting a Veteran goaltender via unrestricted free-agency. Let's hope he looks like he did the whole season...like crap!
  • On a non Columbus Blue Jackets note...congrats to the Anaheim Ducks, again for becoming the first West Coast team to win a Stanley Cup, and also congrats on winning for the first time in franchise history!!
  • Also, on Thursday, June 14 at 7 p.m. EST the NHL Awards show will be shown on VS I suggest everybody watch it. It should be entertaining. If you don't remember who was nominated I posted something on it so check it out.
If there is anything I missed I'm sorry...but that's all I have for now.

I feel your pain. I'm hoping that Cloutier won't be ready to play so that the Kings will sign someone else.

Yeah Cloutier, that's rough...at least he's semi entertaining when he's in...like in Nashville that was fun...right?

I just take most weekends off from blogging. Don't want to burn myself out

I mean to take weekends off but most people do that...and I get sad because I am a blog addict...so...ya know.

I wouldn't worry too much about Howson and his involvement in the Ryan Smyth trade. Yes, the trade was a shocker because it happened so late, but I am not all that surprised that Captain Canada isn't playing for the Oil anymore.

My two cents.
