10:57 AM ET 10.30 | The Blue Jackets, off to a woeful 1-9-1 start, may be on the verge of making substantial changes. Multiple NHL sources have informed The Dispatch early today that Jackets president Mike Priest has contacted Ken Hitchcock about returning as the club's coach, and that former Calgary Flames general manager Craig Button has been contacted about taking on the same job with the Jackets. Blue Jackets GM Scott Howson and/or coach Scott Arniel could be replaced by Monday, the sources indicated.

Or steering into the ice berg.

Is this a conspiracy to get them to move to Quebec in a couple years?

Trade Nash to Toronto.

Do you mean Mike Milbury?

If so why not go with Imelda Marcos? She's also more famous for shoes than anything else and she ran an entire 'country' into the ground.

Well it's going to be at least 2 seasons and you forgot Carolina and Tampa Bay although I have a feeling that Carolina may relocate home(Hartford) and if Columbus moves they will move instate

Carolina does okay in attendance, while Tampa does decent while they are winning.

Yes....for Komiserek straight up!!!!!


WHOA!!!! I fell into the ARGOS dream trap! We have to be realistic, and right now the team is playing well......according to the win column......I'd like to keep it that way. Gustavsson has been pretty darn good while Reimer has been out. I'm real happy with the team, although they have to tighten up a bit.

It's nice for a change! Gotta love Phil you non believers!

Sorry but I don't see it yes they are playing terrible but they are a far better team than they are playing like that said they have to restore Mason's ciand Hitch's defensive style best suits that scenario

I still **** it is Phoenix, as its time! Its is definitely time! Just look at Atlanta, and there move to Winnipeg! They had a record setting season ticket run, and the house has been full and excited.

They have some work to do, but all in all Winnipeg is off to a great start fan wise.....

If Quebec gets a team, I expect the same excitement and reaction, if not stronger than in Winnipeg.

I think Columbus should stay, but give the fans a reason to cheer for a change, and Swamp your right Hitches system will help bring back Mason.
