Maybe arniel should change goalies for shoot outs, or just pull mason and forfeit the other point. Shoot outs were supposed to add drama and an exciting closure to the game. It doesn't seem to be the case in columbus.

We played a horrible team last night and lost. Come on Jackets, I know you have little to play for the rest of the season but at least do your fans the favor of not being doormats with no heart. It doesn't even seem to hurt you to lose so much anymore.

And you people are surprised to lose - yet again - to a lesser opponent? Why - this is CBJ's pattern. They play up/down to their opponent. They do not have a killer instinct and don't have clue on how to put an opponent away in a game. Why don't we just forfeit the rest of the season if they aren't going to play to potential. Or maybe they are playing to their potential and just suck. Don't ANY of these players have any pride at all???

Bring back Jody Shelly. He couldn't score either but he was fun to watch.

How much time and money did you waste on the Jackets this winter?

Would I like the Jackets to win more? Of course. However, I don't consider it wasted money as I enjoy watching hockey and will take satisfaction when they finally are good - hopefully in my lifetime. I'm going to take a wild guess and say you're a frontrunner Red Wings or Penguins fan, or better yet, you don't care about hockey and are a troll.

Bigin....How typical....someone disagrees w/your view so you call him names. pathetic. 10 yrs is a long time to be patient w/utter futility! lets see, change gm, coaches, players, uniforms, slogans and even goal blast and they still stink. Trade? who would want these guys? offensive defensemen? great! too bad they cant play defense worth a hoot.
Martin Brodheur would be a failure on this team!
Guess what Bigin based on attendance there's a lot of folks fed up with lousy effort. guess everyone's a troll but you. fans want a winner, but apparently that's too complicated for you.
