Cheap ownership!!! More of the same excuses that the city has been fed for over nine full seasons. Same old bull, just a different season. You read it hear first, these Jackets as the roster is made up WILL in fact lose more than FIFTY games this season. The McConnell family must go!!!!!!!!!!

54M ain't cheap ownership. Yes they will underperform, but don't say the owners are not spending. The cap is only 5M more.

I agree Butcher.....if it weren't for the McConnell family, there would be no NHL in Columbus. Plus, with the salary numbers near the cap, you can't possibly say "cheap owners". It simply is incorrect.

They WILL NOT lose more than 50 games. They've got plenty of talent to contend. This is basically the same team that made the playoffs in '09, with the youth having another year of experience. I'm not sure where Yawn is coming up with the notion they're going to lose 50+ games.

I like the more offensive-minded, puck control style Arniel will bring. It's not "cheap", it's not lack of talent. I think the team just stopped buying into the Hitch-style of hockey (and that's not a criticism of Hitch....he's a proven winner...just didn't work with THIS team.)

Let's Go Jackets!!
