Not sure why people are downvotung you - you speak the truth. This team BARELY made the postseason and now we stand to lose a big BIG reason of what got us there - and think it’s gonna be fine. Until Jarmo decides what he wants this team to look like  (and which folks will actually sign with Columbus and the market) then all things are up in the air! As I said, this team needs lots and lots of pieces to contend.

I will disagree with you on Philly though. That team is young and up and coming. Their D is legit. They’re close to be a royal pain in our division for a long time.

It’s not going to be fun if we have to face bread multiple times every season. He has a great shot of having a helluva game every time he plays us based on how many odd man rushes we like to give up. 

Here’s hoping he goes to the western conference.

If we get the production he displayed before the trade then that $5M looks good. If we get the production after the trade - it may be a smidge high. 

On the flipside, he’s a Buckeye. Loves Columbus and most likely wants to stay there vs go anywhere else. And for a franchise who very much struggles in attracting outside talent, that may just well be worth paying a premium for.

Agree with Doggy and Q on this one.

As folks have mentioned, Ryan is gonna want to get paid - as he should. And this will arguably be his one big chance to get paid and set himself up for life. Depending on his demands, I won’t be surprised if he he’s wearing a different sweater next season.

Josh certainly had a better year this year vs last. And I hear ya that we were going to lose a good player no matter what - and I get that. But its still not a good look for management that we had an offensive scorer like Bill on our team and didn’t realize his potential until after he left. That’s my complaint. But alas what’s done is done - and I have moved on.

I didn’t even realize he was on the playoff roster (kidding of course). A change of scenery is probably what both parties need. If we have somebody capable in the minors it may just be time to move on.

Best of luck to Bob. He kept us in a lot of games and is arguably the big reason we were a playoff team the past three seasons. Granted - he had a little more help this year vs the previous two seasons.

He was such an improvement over anything thisfranchise ever had between the pipes. It may be a while before we see one as talented as him in a CBJ sweater. Here’s hoping he wins that elusive cup.

Cause the rather pedestrian defense including missing 3 starters, our lack of scoring and a pathetic power play didn’t have anything to do with losing this series. We were BLANKED in 2 of the last 3 games (yes we scored one goal in game 4 but it shouldn’t have counted). Think about that - we scored 3 legit goals in 3 games - but y’all wanna blame Bob for some soft goals?

Losing this series isn’t on Bob. The dude can only stand on his head for so long before law of averages takes over.

Bob and bread will be missed if they choose to leave. It may be another 18 years before we see the likes of either of their caliber of player in a CBJ sweater. I’ve been up here in Philly for over a decade and they still talk about letting Bob go. They may even have some eastern conference finals / Stanley cup finals if he was still wearing a Flyers jersey. And they’re STILL trying to find his replacement!!!!!

Next year is gonna be interesting for sure. We have plenty of time to chat about that though.
