"the Jackets lost 3-0 yesterday before an agitated crowd of 13,043."

Agitated is putting it mildly...

"We knew exactly what they were going to do," Blue Jackets captain Rick Nash said, "but we fell into their trap."

"It's a crappy feeling and an embarrassing effort tonight," Blue Jackets goaltender Steve Mason said."...the effort we put forth isn't acceptable."

Fedor Tyutin... "We didn't get enough shots on goal. They collapse to the net and play five goalies. Every time somebody is trying to shoot, there are at least two guys there to block it, every time."

I am always amazed at how well these guys can analyze what they did wrong, they KNOW what they have to do, but they never seem able to DO it!! Why cant they analyze their play in the locker room at the end of each period, and adjust accordingly??!! I am SO tired of the post-game interviews where the guys know exactly what they did wrong, seemed to have known throughout the game that they were doing it wrong, but they didn't FIX it!!

And as far as being "tired"...from WHAT? playing a 2 o'clock game the day before? You're kidding....Sounds like Kevin Collins needs a different game plan, at this point.

I LOVE this team, but, COME ON!!!!!!

But we're still gonna make the playoffs, right? Here we go Jackets, here we go. HERE WE GO JACKETS, HERE WE GO!

FOR THE PEOPLE OUT THERE THAT THINK IMPROVEMENTS HAVE BEEN MADE THERE IS AN EYE DOCTOR RIGHT AROUND THE CORNER FROM WHERE YOU LIVE. THIS TEAM HAS NOTHING TODAY AND NOTHING IN NUMBERS COMING DOWN THE ROAD WHICH IS GOING TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN THE FUTURE. THE FARM SYSTEM HAS KILLED THIS ORGANIZATION FROM DAY ONE. I THINK WE SHOULD HAVE BEEN SELLERS AT THE DEADLINE. MAYBE WITH 30 OR 40 PICKS IN HAND WE COULD GET LUCKY WITH A COUPLE OF DECENT YOUNG PLAYERS.

The entire organization is terrible on all levels, management and players. Don't even get me started about the mascot. There are a few good players. The Blue Jackest are the laughing stock of the entire NHL.

The team will be sold and moved to another city within 5 years.

I went to this game for a period and a half and left to watch the Buckeye's routing. There wasn't a shot recorded for the Jackets until 40 seconds left in the 1st period.

Luckily I had cheap seats but I want my money back. My E league team go have done that good.

Arniel realizes his team's got nothing....well, it was a long time coming, but the truth finally arrives. There's nothing he can do, no line changes he can make and no substitutions he can pull off that will reverse it.

We're boned.

Glad I spent $39 to see the team get skunked when it really counted
