Howson Gm of the Jackets needs to go

The vibes of playoff hockey had come a few months early for the Blue Jackets and it was a beautiful sight to see. Now that the Jackets defined  themselves as buyers at the trade deadline, they looked to find the missing pieces they needed to make their team a winner.To do that Howson needs to go look at all the terrible trades he has made,the worst one was the Chimmer trade.Look at how many players are in the play offs that were traded away.

Kris Russell fracture his left ankle

The Blue Jackets were shut out for the fourth time in their last 11 games Tuesday, a 3-0 loss in Dallas. They've scored just 41 goals in 20 games since Feb. 25, going 3-10-7 in that stretch.

The Blue Jackets have scored just 41 power play goals this season, tied for 28th in the NHL. Unless they score a goal with the man advantage in the last two games, they'll match a franchise record for fewest power play goals in a season. Oddly, it was set during the 2008-09 season, the only season the Blue Jackets made the playoffs."I knew right away, just from the way that he reacted. I knew it was bad."
