Give Howson this much credit: he at least is going into the season with a player's coach instead of a Hitchcock-style hardass.
Virtually none, I was not in the "keep Noel" crowd but after a few months watching the Jets I did get a little uneasy.. Noel did a great job with that team, he came close to making the playoffs and would have had their road record been a little better.. I did like his player of the game helmet idea; the idea caught on and was used by at least one team I know of other than the Jets.

Richards is a player coach, as was Noel. I'm not excited with the process used to select our 6th head coach nor the selection but it is what it is. In the end the roster Howson puts together might be the most significant factor impacting the Blue Jackets next season.
