That says they sent Calvert down- I wonder how long until they get Johansen out of that locker room as well?

Well, they made the playoffs several years back with a not much better roster than this one.

Of course, Mason basically carried them that year. Without him playing at that level, they're unable to overcome their other problems.


You mean the year Mason was 21st in save percentage while facing only 27 shots per game? The year Rick Nash scored 40 goals?


Mason was not the one carrying the team. He simply got the hype because he had some strong games behind a defense full of good solid stay at home guys like Mike Commodore. It was Nash's team.

So how long does a hairline fracture on top of your foot keep you out for? I'm sure it hurts like hell but does anyone think he'll be out for more than a couple games?

Let's hope the CBJ continue their slow start for at least one more game.

Minor news, but news nonetheless: Jackets recall Cody Bass from AHL Springfield.

Per Kevin Allen's twitter, Carter is headed to the IR. So much for it just being one game.

Umberger and Vermette combined for 104 points last year, and have one point combined in their ten games total.

They're sending down the kids (Atkinson, Calvert) but it looks like some vets might not be buying in to Arniel this year.

Im gonna go ahead and point out your skewed stats, sure hes 21st if you include goalies that have played anywhere from one minute to 82 games played. Taking out those goalies whose body of work is not enough to compare to Mason's we find him much higher on the list. Using a minimum of 20 games which is low for NHL leader standards, we find him at 12th for save percentage, 3rd in GAA and 10 shutouts, 10 games where he earned his team a minimum of one point even if they didn't score. You're minimizing his accomplishments that year, he wasn't the sole reason for their good season, but was a major factor.

One of their reasons for a slow start also could be the suspension to WIz. No matter what you think of his contract or defensive play, there is denying he is a power play asset. The BJs were putting alot of stock in him eating up minutes and boosting their power play and putting up points. Missing an integral part of their team no matter how good you may think he is, will hurt the team.
Get me a real fourth line Kenny!

This is why I love sports writers. Some of those dumbies were saying that Columbus were gonna challenge for the division title.. righttttt :lol: Mason since his rookie year has been a huge sieve, outside of suspended and overpaid Wisneniewski they have no defence. This team is a mess, if they keep it up Arniel will be out soon enough.

Got the win tonight. Steve Mason looked good in net for the first time in a while.

Losing 8-1 in the third to the Flyers. My guess is that there will be a couple additions to the unemployment line in Columbus by Monday.

9-2 now. This game has been a laugher (I'm visiting the parents, Dad is a huge Flyers fan). It hasn't been that close. Even the Flyers announcers made allusions to the likeliness of job openings in Columbus after the score hit 8-0.
It's pronounced "Zim" not "Exim". Aw heck with it, just call me Scott.

If they wanted to toss Nash our way I wouldn't sneeze at it. But I have a feeing they are just going to switch coaches and hope that works.

I'd say we are in agreement. Think they'll bring Hitchcock back?
