Blue Jackets have fired Todd Richards

The Blue Jackets have fired Todd Richards this morning, replacing him with John Tortorella, one of the NHL’s firebrand coaches who has been out of work since Vancouver fired him a year ago.
The news was first reported by TSN’s Darren Dreger.
Richards was fired just hours after a 4-0 loss to the New York Islanders dropped Columbus to 0-7-0, matching the worst start to a season in modern NHL history.
Tortorella, 57, is expected to make his debut behind the Blue Jackets’ bench on Thursday when they play the Minnesota Wild in Xcel Energy Center. He did not immediately respond to messages left on his cell phone.  About freaking time he was killing this team!!!

Why is Richards still the coach

Remember the buoyant Blue Jackets, the ones loaded with offensive talent and a mostly competent defense, the ones expected to challenge for the Metropolitan Division title and make noise in the Stanley Cup playoffs? Yeah, no one else does, either.

Vermette another game winning goal he was not good enough to play for the Bluejackets so they traded him. Jackets one of the worse teams in the past 10 years that make bad trades. Go Hawks.

Go Rangers

Its totally clear that the CBJ management over the past 7 years or so are not educated enough to keep a winning team together,they trade all their best players to playoff teams,,go Rangers.

Derek Dorsett

They signed forward Derek Dorsett to a four-year deal with an average annual cap hit of $2.65 million, via Bob McKenzie. He established single-season career-highs in both points (25) and assists (18). Dorsett currently leads the team in hits (163) and his team-leading 169 penalty minutes rank fourth in the League. Of course the Jackets traded him we don't want to keep good players but feed the league with them.

Ryan Murray

The Blue Jackets believe there is much more for defenseman Ryan Murray to learn about being an everyday NHL defenseman, which is why he was in the lineup for a largely meaningless game last night against the Edmonton Oilers. Murray, limited to eight games this season because of injuries, played his first since he suffered a high-ankle sprain on Feb.6. But there is one aspect of the NHL that Murray knows all too well. “I’ve done this a couple times,” Murray said of returning from a long injury absence. “Hopefully, I’m here to stay now.”

Jacket Trades

I was just reading all the negative comments about this team and the present management,,there are a couple positive ones and 50 or more negative ones many are not renewing their tickets. The Wiz trade really pissed off a lot of fans. Many are saying the Jamo and Davidson are as bad as the previous mgm.

jackets Injuries

I've gotten the sense from some players that they don't have the utmost confidence in the treatment they've received here. It's a tough story to cover or write about, because players are reluctant to talk about it with their names on it, and we don't feel it is right to besmirch the names of those involved. AND ONE OTHER THING, that is not small: Nothing has been proven. Any team that leads the league in man-games lost has to look at how they're handling treatment. It's not just the doctors, but the training staff and the strength and conditioning staff. The club has already said they've looked into the matter, at least a few times. I'd be surprised if a much more intense look isn't underway.

NHL All-Star Weekend

Columbus will be deluged in a few days with ice-hockey fans from Ohio, neighboring states and beyond. An estimated 140,000 people, including 8,000 to 10,000 out-of-towners, are expected to partake in the myriad events that make up NHL All-Star Weekend. The economic impact of the event is expected to extend well beyond the obvious crowds, as Sunday’s game will be seen in 150 countries, providing rare and valuable media exposure for the city. Going to be a fun time will be doing the slide ha.
