Doug MacLean Bluejackets

Doug MacLean and his handpicked staff will have at least one more year to show that they’ve turned around a Columbus Blue Jackets team that hasn’t been beyond middling since it hit the ice in fall 2000.
Negotiations on a new deal for MacLean, the team president and general manager, are 90 percent complete, team owner John H. McConnell said yesterday. It will be a one-year contract, renewable annually.
MacLean’s current contract is to expire this summer, as will those of more than 20 officials in the hockey operations department — including assistant GM Jim Clark, coach Gerard Gallant and his assistants, and all of the full-time scouts.
