The thing that I hate the most is that there is s little passion in Columbus.

It's tough to compete in this league when you don't have a first or second line.

Dorsett's manhandling of Shaw was my game highlight. Mason's arrogance on the post game radio show was my second.

All in all, a pretty depressing display. I enjoy watching JJ play, though. He's a great start to blowing this mess up. The Captain needs to go. At $7.8 million, he's becoming a joke of late.

Umberger needs to be the amnesty buy out if the CBA allows for one. He's the poster child for no long term contacts. I hope someone smashes his face in. A teammate preferably.

RJ is what he is, a top NHL third liner, I don't want anyone to smash his head as he could be a leader on a CBJ winning playoff team.

Other than that yeah, you are close.

I was just fooling about someone smashing his face in. Shoulda put a smiley there. Still, the guy is so soft and so ineffective, it's brutal to watch him especially in the light of knowing that he's going to be out there for 5 more years at a big cap hit. He's untradable and he won't be bought out.

Not to be disagreeable, but I don't think he's an NHLer at this point. Certainly not a top anything. I really hope there is some underlying issue which is responsible for his play this season.

RJ has a place in Columbus, which is the third line on a playoff team as he was in Philly... He's 90% emotional, if the Jackets ever make a playoff series he will make a difference in the win column.

More from Princess Stoutheart:

But except for one goal, Mason didn’t blame himself for the puck getting behind him.

“I don’t even consider this a bad game,” he said. “Aside from the second (goal), there’s not much you can do.”

That second goal, which came two minutes after the first one and two minutes before the third, was a bad-angle shot from Patrick Sharp that somehow found the net.

“They found a hole through my arm, the one part of the equipment where there’s a hole, and it snuck in there,” Mason said.

The other two Blackhawks goals in the third period went in off of Blue Jackets. The first was a pass that deflected off of John Moore. The third was an afterthought flick from the blue line by Brent Seabrook that glanced off Columbus defenseman Aaron Johnson right in front of the goal.

“It’s two feet in front of you,” Mason said. “You can’t react to that.”


Yes, it's all on his teammates and the hole in his equipment. Even if he was correct, isn't it customary for the goalie to accept at least some of the blame for a 5-1 shellacing? And he doesn't consider that a bad game? The more I see and hear from this kid, the more I actually dislike him. I can't even root for him to become a winner, he'll just become more of an insufferable ass.

The sad thing is, Richards pretty much agreed with Mason's comments in HIS post game comments on the radio...............

Little Dorsett didn't manhandle anyone...............he tried to provoke a meaningless fight after his own team was hopelessly behind. Kinda like Boll starting a fight at the beginning of the game to "fire up" his team............yeah, how'd that work out? Hawks almost immediately score three quick goals.

Get used to this everyone..................the Bluejackets have now become the real-life Charleston Chiefs...........goon it up boys, goon it up. The locals love it..............

despite the fact that this is in fact very arrogant of him this is something i want to see, him developing confidence in himself.. he sucked last game but didnt get down and cry like a little baby about it, which is a step in the right direction. lets face it hes been very good lately besides this last game and if he just lets this 1 game get the best of him it could be horrible for a longer period of games.

Sorry, Cono, but lack of confidence has never been a problem for Mason. He's arrogant and uncoachable, he needs less self-confidence, not more. He doesn't cry about failure, he blames it on others. I know I'm being harsh, but I've reached a point where I just don't want the kid around anymore. Let him gain whatever it is he needs to be successful in another organization.

Come on everybody, he's right. He's been good lately. Look at his last 6 games or so. The new pads were key. And he's a warrior, playing with a lacerated hand only because his team needs him. "Hello 29 other GMs, wanna make a trade?"

Oh there is a lot of passion in Columbus, just not with the Jackets. Fans, players, or otherwise. Did you see how excited the 'Hawks fans where destroying us?

You have a small handful of players that have it, the rest are along for the ride.

Sorry Robert, after RJ's shameful, and that is what it is, performance this year, I would like to see him helping another team to the playoffs in return for their first pick this year or next. Bad bounces and missed chances aside, his lack of effort has been appalling.

Exactly. It's like watching golf. I think the Dispatch had Boll's post game quote, where he just called out his team mates for it. It's just ********. If you don't want to play on my team, get the hell out of town.

You can read this as arrogance or see it as calling out his team mates, which needs to be done. Not all but a couple of the Chicago goals should have been given assists by CBJ players. The most notable one was Aaron Johnson's lazy slide into the lane blocking Mason's sight to allow, I think, the first Sharp goal. Ridiculous, lazy play by defensemen who either don't know how to do their job or don't care.

I know hes been on record of saying his defense is to blame sometimes but there is no way u can tell me he has "too much confidence" when he looks at the rafters every softie he lets up and there is no way hes thinking "oh wow my defense blows" everytime this happens. That clearly shows a lack of self confidence. Anything to keep himself from saying "i suck" is a good thing in my book and in that post game mason makes no blame on his teammates for the goals.

In past seasons, I would go to the meaningless March games and try to look for the positives, as if they would somehow translate over to October. Not this year, I stayed for 2 periods last night and that was enough. This roster needs flushed. Maybe go the Florida route and bring in a new cast - the results can't be any worse than this year. Keep Jack Johnson and a few others who might give a crap and send the rest packing.

One last thing, can't stand all of the bandwagon Blackhawk fans. Where were they several years ago when the United Center was a morgue. Had a number of them around me last night and they were pretty bad. I asked a couple whether they were this passionite during the Jocelyn Thibault days - I'm not sure they knew who he was.
