Maybe it's the fatalist in me, but with Torts' history of putting his foot in it publicly, I'm still waiting for him to say or do something that forces Jarmo to fire him.

The thing is, at the time I wrote the original, the Jackets were faltering and struggling, and Q had just been fired. So, it was, to me, logical speculation.

I'm neither going to agree or disagree with you. I am, however going to remind you that, in the press conference announcing his signing with Pittsburgh, Johnson stated that one of his reasons for signing there was to win a Cup. One could, reasonably, argue that part of the reason Pittsburgh was swept was Johnson's lack of defensive ability. Happily, they're stuck with him for four more years. (No one is taking that contract off of Rutherford's hands.)

So, you'd start a goalie who can't beat Pittsburgh and has won only two of his last six starts because AND who has obviously already checked out on the team because he's (supposedly) the best goalie on the team? I'd start Kinkaid. At least he's got a winning record against Pittsburgh.

So, Jarmo ships out a handful of draft picks, Anthony Duclair and two top prospects to get Duchene and Dzingel instead of shipping out Bob and Bread for a Brinks truck haul of picks and prospects. This was done, we're told, in order to go all in and make a legitimate run for the Cup. So far, it's looking like the biggest fuck up since Dougie Mac ran this team. Get steamrolled (again) by Pittsburgh. Followed up by barely winning in overtime over Philly, a team that hasn't been in the playoff hunt since opening night. Now, the lowly Oilers have shutout the Jackets and, guess what. Right now, the Jackets aren't even one of the wild card teams. That's right, friends. Since acquiring Duchene and Dzingel, the Jackets have fallen from 3rd place and 3 points out of first to having the ninth best record in the conference.
