LeClaire and Boucher seem like fond memories. Let's ride Garon. Clearly pulling Mason does little to elevate his confidence and starting him does little to elevate the CBJ's standings.

At least Jiuce is healthy.

A lot of them are also Cleveland sports fans. They're used to it.

poorly managed from the beginning. Why would anyone even consider bailing these guys out? I don't even want to hear that there is plenty of time. Its been excuses for 10 years. Wake up morons. A poorly managed team with a middle of the road payroll = failure everytime. How can people really be this blind? Even if for some reason they do start playing better and somehow sneak into the playoffs......they Will just get bent over again by the far superior teams in the western conference that play down to the bj's. This joke of an organization has worn out its welcome.

SEND HIM TO MINORS.
Being a fan of the Jackets I'm getting sick and tired of reading about Arniel
sending Mason out there to get bombed.

And you should know what accepting losing is like, seeing you have to accept your pathetic life every single day.

How long do you get a pass for being rookie of the year? 2 years? 3 years?? Time to pull the plug.

HOW MANY TIMES does this guy have to choke, give up soft goals, and get pulled before we trade or release him? How much more damage is he going to be allowed to DO to the team?

We're in free-fall right now, having another December-that-takes-us-out-of- the-playoffs. C'mon, Arniel, man up and take this guy off the ice! C'mon, Howson, get us a decent back-up for Garon and admit he's our #1 keeper!

This isn't rocket science.

You'd have to be blind not to see the same bad trend developing as last year, they've lost nine of their last 11 and the "franchise goalie" is stinking up the ice!

You appear clueless. Supporting the team is one thing, but being ignorant is something else.

Bad offense + average goaltending = Early Tee Times at Double Eagle for the players.

This team is above 500 because they were getting excellenet goaltending early on. Problem is Mason is not an elite goalie (he may be someday, but not right now) and Garon (despite playing really well) is a career backup. Garon is saving the CBJ right now, but it's highly unlikely he can continue playing that well.
too bad

Buddy,you must be Scott Howson, because no fan I know can accept the patience of waiting on this club any longer. Bad decisions all over the operations for 10 years. Now the same disease that destroyed an old coach is affecting a promising young coach. I know there is alot of Foote haters out there, but if you now can't understand why he hopped a plane to get out Dodge, well all I can say is you need to see someone about removing your blinders.
