Quite a few Columbus fans are unhappy with Hitchcock more than anyone, because they say that the team is in need of more offense and he prefers playing "AHL goons" and going all defense in third period etc... I haven't watched them outside of our games with them. So I dunno. Interesting turn of events though.
To me it seems like it split bewteen them being mad at Hitch and not being mad. Hitch wanted more effort, consistency and play in his own zone. They were saying during one game he had 3 turnovers in his zone on the same shift making dumb plays. Hitch is trying to make him a better all around player but some seem would rather him be a one dimension floater.
