If we want to know what the CBJ will look like without Rick Nash, we need to look no further that a certain soccer stadium on I-71. No stars, no offense, no marketing buzz. Yes, we DO need to get our back-end in order before adding to the offense, but until the winning starts, there can be no viability without marketability.

My disdain is not for the selection of Todd Richards. It's for the appearance of there not being any serious search for a better candidate. It appears the job was just handed to him, like the C was to Rick Nash, the net was to Steve Mason, and so on and so on.
