MEMBER SINCE   March 09, 2017

I was born in Cleveland, so those teams are in my DNA. I moved around a lot since my dad was in the Coast Guard, but we moved to Pataskala once he retired. I was a Penguins fan until the Jackets came around, but I didn't fully divest myself from them until they were handed, I mean "won", the #1 Pick that was Crosby immediately after Super Mario bought the team and prevented them from folding/moving.
I frequently posted topics about the CBJ on 11W, but when I changed jobs it was difficult to stay on 11W. I'm more of a casual Buckeyes fan and I am far more devout to the CBJ.

Let's be clear, money is not the reason Bread leaves, CBJ will give him whatever he wants, so let's forget this notion of "how much will it take" as it doesn't matter. Regarding Duchene, 8x8 might get it done, but again, CBJ aren't going to low ball him, they'll likely offer a max year deal as well, rendering again, the money meaningless. Only CBJ can offer them 8 years, and I'm confident Jarmo isn't going to only offer 8x6 to them.

I love the moves. Let's be honest, even with losing all 4 in July, they have the cap space to sign other players, so it's not like they'll be horrible. CBJ have made offers to Bob based on playoff performance. If he actually shows up in April/May, CBJ will bring the Brinks. Duchene would re-sign based on the success and Dzingle might because he played at OSU. A lot is riding on winning a series or two. I'm ecstatic JK is going for it.

The Jackets are a dangerous 5v5 team, and I've noticed when they start buzzing, a deliberate penalty is taken, forcing them to go on the PP. The power play is bad enough that it kills momentum, and generally has resulted in pretty good scoring chances for the CBJ opponent on the PK. I call that tactic #StymieCBJ on the twitter machine.

I think Larsen and Shaw need to go... How can this team be this bad on special teams? If they go 1-2 on a PP, this game is won... Too many 0-10+ streaks over the last four years with these assistant coaches is enough. And where the hell is the puck luck? CBJ hit iron, opponents score on a triple deflection?

As soon as the Q-stache was let go, I knew this would pop up and the only answer is no. The Jackets biggest problem is special teams.... I'd change assistants before the head coach at this time.
