So why doesn't this organization hold Howson accountable for assembling this mess?
I just can fathom that this entire front office hasnt been blown up.

Vancouver currently leads the West with 57 points; the Question Of The Day is: Will the Jackets make it to 57 points this season? I say No.

This season is so far gone, I've lost any and all emotional attachment to this team. I can't get happy over a good performance; I can't get pissed off about an especially poor performance. I can't say I'm excited about a potential rebuild until some major changes take place in the front office, from Priest on down. I'll continue to be a fan of this team, but right now I'm just waiting to see a reason for hope.

Fun fact of the day...

The Rangers have more points on the road or at home than we do. Total.

Jackets = 27 points.

Rangers, 28 points at home, 30 on the road. Vancouver is really close, 26 points at home, 31 on the road. Boston would be, but they haven't played enough road games, so they only have 24 on the road. That's inspiring, Boston as only played 16 road games and has almost equaled our point total in those 16 that we have accomplished in 42.

Thanks for those cheerful notes. I think I'll go stick a rusty nail through my tongue, that'll make me feel better.

Well...true. LOL But I was going with the Fun Fact label, even if it was a reality check. Trying to turn the tide here a little bit as we are swimming upstream...in a downward spiral...of hell. At least your post was informational and not just another tear jerking "WE SUCK!" or "TRADE NASH!"

Cougar Fun Fact: Rusty Klesla needs 2 more assists to have 100. What do you want to bet he gets them Friday night?

Yeah. Just going with the trend for former Jackets to come in and score on us. With our current status, it should be easier.
