Probably because half of the stuff in this forum is completely made up/baseless claims about players and the team and it becomes annoying to have to quash rumors being spread about what a player said that he never actually said.

Every day there is a new thread about how so and so player said or did something and how they should be out of Columbus. It's kind of out of control and it makes this forum almost unreadable with the extreme negativity and mudslinging.

You mean they answer questions like a normal human being and not a product drone. Seriously, listen to any post-game sporting interview, it's the same five answers recycled (partly because it's the same five recycled questions). I have watched every baseball playoff game this post-season and anytime they interview a pitch post-game he starts by saying, "The goal was to just throw strikes and let our defense do the rest" followed by, "we're taking every game one at a time so i'm only concerned with tomorrow". What a croc of b*ll. We are so scared to hear what these people actually think and believe, it's getting so damn annoying. BTW it doesn't matter if you're Russian/Canadian/American/Chinese/Mexican etc. it's pretty silly to generalize an entire group of people as having diarrhea of the mouth. When's the last time you heard Tyutin's name in the news or even Malkin?

i updated my post above with a full rough translation and some comments. The main things i take from this is:

brassard needs to keep some things to himself
the new owner likes hockey less than his dad did
attendance is an issue in columbus, and the team feels it, but the team also feels responsible for it because of their performance at home
there are 3 french canadians on the jackets



you guys were double whammied. The OP misrepresented the article, and the article, in typical french-canadian hockey media style, misrepresented the interview. I wouldnt be worrying about the team moving based on this article.

I might add, I know you heard that every years, but for the game I saw this year on center ice Columbus have a bright future. Columbus seem to be a good hockey market, I think it's just the simple fact that the BJ never have great season!

Sorry but Brass did not say anything bad. There is a proverb in Slovakia : robiť somára z komára (make a donkey from a culex). And this is an object-lesson.

To Filatov. Nikita did not say anything bad too. I red original stories about Columbus in Russian. But someone in U.S.A. had to wrest his words. He never said bad about Columbus or Hitch. NEVER!!!

If he was talking about relocating he would have said Phoenix. He was talking about the 3 worst teams in the league in the past decade, which have clearly been Florida, Atlanta, and Columbus. Atlanta and Columbus have never won a playoff game and when was the last time Florida was even in the playoffs?
In fact, we just had a conversation on this Board comparing Florida, Atlanta and Phoneix to the Jackets with regard to on-ice performance and attenance. So, a big hello to loyal reader Derick Brassard. And, as pointed out elsewhere, the Panthers haven't made the playoffs as long as the Jackets have existed. The last time they made the playoffs was 1999-00. They have only made the playoffs 3 times and only made it out of the first round the year of their Cup run.

Unless he starts showing this type of passion on the ice again (there was a time a couple years back when he did), it would probably take a lot for him to supplant Umberger as my current favorite Jacket.

Most of us in the "real world" have to bite our tongue about our bosses, so it is nice to live vicariously through someone who doesn't have to kiss ass.

Thanks, danishh.

Personally, I hold no ill will toward the Canadian passion for hockey nor French Canadians nor the media, but that doesn't mean that there aren't passionate French Canadian hockey media types who hold ill will toward the newer NHL markets. My guess is it's not personal/anything to do with the market itself as it has to do with "you've got what we want and we don't." I get that. Still, we'll keep our team, thank you.

Despite this acceptable resume, columbus remains 5th in the central division behind (other teams).
If that's the translation, way to spin that one, Quebec media. We're fifth in a division where all five teams are in the top 8, 10 games into the season. A win tonight & we magically catapult into a tie for second.

(Yes, I know it's nitpicky, but they make us sound like we're 20 points behind Detroit already.)

Sounds to me Brassard hates Columbus, the NHL, Corvettes and apple pie based on that article... Ridiculous original interpretation of a few harmless words, this is very similar to the Russian media and Filatov drama last year.

I think a Bobby Knight quote applies:

This was posted by "Cobra" on Light the Lamp:

"This past spring I had my 4-year old at skating lessons at Chiller North. Being so little, parents are on the ice with the kids to help. And, lo and behold who was out on the ice with his little boy helping him skate? No other than JP McConnell himself.

I had met the man years ago so I struck up a conversation with him off the ice and he mentioned he also has a step-son who plays hockey in town.

I don't think it's a stretch to say a billionaire NHL owner taking time to be out on the ice with his boy may have a bit of hockey in his veins."



Make of that what you will.

First of all it was a joke, second of all Russians are known to be more candid in the media and I find it funny that you would even try to dispute or downplay that fact, and thirdly when you are a sports player the boring response is always the best response.

Blue Jackets center Derick Brassard said he did not sleep well last night, and he woke early this morning. The torment was caused by an interview Brassard gave to Montreal radio station CKAC on Monday evening.

Not Russian media but American/Canadian media. Either let they pay better translators or do not write about it.
