Losing Dubie was a kick to the nuts! The fans just can't catch a break! Looks like it will be Danis and Mannino. Oh no, we suck again!

At least we could've had somebody we liked between the pipes.

Thanks a lot, Columbus!

The Blue Jackets have Mason.......nuff said. They really need to back him up with anyone of NHL caliber? He's lighting it up over there! A 3rd string wouldve been fine as a backup. They'll get there just dues. Maybe Dubie will play badly and get put on waivers by them, then we can get him back....again.

Most hated teams list:
1. Rangers
2. Flyers
3. Devils
4. Columbus ----->New Addition!

Snow screwed up by not re-signing Dubie. He knew that DiP was prone to injuries and never should have let Dubie go. Now it's payback. Dubie is probably chuckling all the way to Columbus via Vancouver. Poor Garth,"If I didn't have bad luck I wouldn't have any luck at all"

Garth Snow should have listened to Ted Nolan and kept Dubie- Doesn't anyone ever wonder why Garth Snow gets a pass whenever he screws up ?
Everyone talks about Milbury....Snow is worse than Milbury-

Smow is 10 times worse than Milbury! Garth is an idiot wrapped in a moron! It started with that ridiculous contract to Dip. Dont get me wrong I am a huge fan of his, but he is made of glass.

Nolan wouldn't listen to Snow when he was told to play Thumbellina.Nolan is gone. Thumbellina is now getting tons of ice time and what has he produced? I'm really starting to wonder about Snows ability.

You're right....Thumbellina is just not a good NHL player- You're just starting to wonder about Snows ability NOW ? He's the Isiah Thomas of hockey- Anytime a teamgets progressively worse under your watch shows that you're not doing your job- I don't wanna hear that ya gotta hit rock bottom before you can grow...that's BS- The good GM's stabilize what's in place and build on it- I think Wang oughta give Snow some of that Chinese torture-

I'm not an Islander fan but this is a terrible break for them. Is Dubie really worth claiming on waivers? The least Columbus could have done was let him go and find another backup somewhere.

Your starting to wonder about Snow's Ability??? The man is a backup goalie who can't even get a deal done to bring a backup to the backup goalie on the worse team in hockey.... and your just starting to wonder.

You have to sign him for him to go on waivers. Its kinda weird but unique process from guys from other leagues.

this team has no scoring at all-that's the real problem on this team.
