Todd Richards’ job security

The Blue Jackets (8-12-3) were tied for seventh place with the Islanders in the Metropolitan Division, the NHL’s weakest, entering last night. They will complete their longest trip of the season — five games over nine days — at Toronto on Monday. It has been an all-Canada trip and, throughout the hockey-mad provinces, there have been whispers about coach Todd Richards’ job security. Richards can coach. We saw it last season. That is the way the brain trust is looking at things now. Although the losses at Edmonton and Vancouver were embarrassing, Richards is not in serious trouble. That is the vibe I am getting, anyway. He will not be judged on the basis of seven spotty weeks.
Too bad he is a boring coach and need to go.
