Hooking Bob already is a mistake.

Skaters look like they are still asleep.

Punch Imlach used to do this. Everyone would be sleepwalking, the goalie would stand on his head, and Imlach would light into the goalie. It would piss him off, but it would light a fire under everyone else to defend their teammate.

We're just totally outclassed. Frustrated feeling like this every year.

I think the energy is there, but they are getting manhandled all over the ice.

Players on the bench sitting there all rigid and not talking... I expect things to continue downhill

this rotating "A" nonsense has to stop. Jack Johnson is the closest thing we have to a legitamate NHL player. Give him the "C" and hope guys fall in line.

Rotating "A's" amongst horrible hockey players is probably the worst leadership idea ever.

Even worse than slapping a C on a random player and "hoping for the best?"

Whatever the Blue Jackets do, the opposite is usually right.

And I'm not just talking about A's. I mean player personnel, drafting, developing, everything.

You could make Mark Messier in his heyday the C and this team would still suck. Rotating A's is nothing more than a tool to have someone on the ice to talk to the ref.

Good god, Punch Imlach! There are two folks here that saw him coaching live on the bench, you and me!!! lol

And the Sabres fired him! (after the Leafs)

The problem isn't energy. The problem is knowing how to play hockey. We have no clue what we are doing.

I liked Ides that period, at least. Of course, one expects a certain amount of effort in a first game.

Jack Johnson is a "random" player?

He is all around probably our best player, he plays the most minutes on the team every single night, sometimes even 30 minutes, and he is one of the few guys that at the very least, does his job and effort isn't a question.

I'd rather hope guys follow his example then pass the captaincy around to miserable guys like RJ, Tyutin, Aucoin, etc.
