Stars 3, Blue Jackets 0: Another game closer to the offseason | The Columbus Dispatch

The Blue Jackets spent the day steeling themselves to face a rowdy crowd and a full-on assault by the Dallas Stars, a team facing a win-or-else scenario for the Stanley Cup playoffs in their final four games of the season. Full Story

Can't wait for "Fan Appreciation Night".

Of course, losing 17 of the last 20 games when you were only 2 points out of the playoffs, there probably is only one fan left.

Big changes needed.

I believe the losing streak is the result of Howson not acquiring additional help to the team at the trade deadline. I think the team gave up following his futile efforts to improve the team's composition for a playoff drive. They mailed it in following the losses to the Preds and the Canucks. They wanted additional help and they didn't recieve it. Team went into a tail spin, period.

Don't blame garon for that 6-1 loss. It was the lazy defense and a lazy Verm. Both Garon and LeNeavu has amazing saves but can't do much when your d never forcheck, screen you, and refuse to go after the guy with the puck. Fire te entire d line except for the new pickups. They are the only ones putting out.

Trade Nash and Verm. Pickup a name goalie to replace mason, pay whatever it takes to keep upshall rivet and Sammi.

As these players continue to make millions of dollars they won't be doing it with my money. I'm not renewing my season tickets - I can spend my entertainment money on something that brings more satisfaction.

This team is such an embarrassment to the city of Columbus & the NHL.

Now I understand why Hitchcock spent his last year just yelling at this

team & why former players couldn't wait to leave & were glad to be traded.

Don't even play the last few games..just forfeit..or boycott this mess.

After the season, disband this bunch of over-paid underachievers.

The Blue Jackets are so bad that Fox Sports preempted them for the Reds and the CAVALIERS in this market!

Even Arniel has given up. Where's his big talk about accountability now? He's learned that he has no recourse in this organization and the players can do what they want. And, apparently, they want to lose. A lot.

Somebody call me when they decide to have a team.

Another game closer to the end of another stinking season, that's just great. Way to give up, boys! Play for that draft choice!

Let's hope that management gets out there and cleans house this time. No more of this standing pat and assuming they'll go to the playoffs THIS time.

We need to get rid of Priest and Howson, get some capable people in there, and then make moves that will make this team a WINNER. If that means trading any player or combination of players to get good, hard-fighting, winning players in here, do it. NObody should be off-limits. And by that I mean Nash, of course.

Ownership needs to open up the wallet a bit more, too. Can't have good players without spending a little money.

The alternative? More years ending like this one. Smaller and smaller crowds. More frustration. And eventually, the team moving elsewhere.

Those are your choices, now make the RIGHT one!
