Good for Hitch, I am happy for him. I hate to see him in the division but it is good for St. Louis and for him.


Meanwhile, Scott Howson still hibernates while the Jackets spiral into hockey oblivion.

Craziness!

In all honesty I have no idea why St. Louis feels like making a desperate move like this. Thanks for saving us some money though!

Good luck to him. At least we won't have him back.

It's only thread worthy because 1. it's money off OUR books and 2. he was rumored by many to be back behind OUR bench soon. The latter is probably what motivated the Blues to act now.

If the Jackets were 6-7-0, Howson would be giving everyone 4 year/ $20 million contract extensions.

Didn't want him as the Jackets' coach again, but good luck to him nonetheless.

Interesting that on the Blues board there was a question as to whether or not this was done now since Hextall is talks to come to Columbus.

Did not see that coming.

Now Arniel is free to coach without that cloud over his head.

This caught me by surprise. Clearly, they must have asked permission to speak to Hitch over the last few days. The fact that it didn't leak out and that Hitch was still prominently being shown watching the Jackets is amazing.

Therein lies the problem with the franchise. Excellent post!

I agree whole heartedly. Hitch always seemed to be a class act here. I again wish him well. He is going to another club playing less than inspired hockey. I think he will do well there. HOWEVER, just because money is off of our books, it DOES NOT MEAN that Happy Howie will :

1. Spend it or

2 Spend it wisely

Wonder what type of advice he has been giving the CBJ lately. Now it will all be in question.

They were probably encouraging St. Louis to hire him ASAP

Good luck to Hitch. Should make the St Louis Blues games even more exciting than normal, providing we return to some semblance of an NHL caliber team at some point.

So I wonder if Payne is now a candidate for CBJ? Weirder things have happened.

Who knew that the biggest CBJ news today would be a hiring.

Maybe that is the reason we have been tanking, listening to a coach giving us bad in put


I can just hear Hitch telling Priest: "Listen, you have a great club, Mason is just one step away from being a great goalie, stay the course, it will all work out."

Maybe. The Blues could be paying him very little (for this season) and the difference between whatever his compensation with the Blues is and his Columbus rate would still be have to be paid by the Jackets.
