Yeah, blahblah, what IS your story?

I'm in DC on business and have a hotel room with a balcony, so I went on it to catch a glimpse of Obama's motorcade roll by. I came back in the room to see...this.

This is amazing. Where did this COME FROM?

I do feel bad for Howson, because at the end of the day, he's another guy with no job. But where was this years ago?

Have to imagine this is a JD move. Our owner is incompetent.

That is good to hear. I don't want Davidson doing both. We need a good President and a good GM.

Honestly, the next GM is set up great. 3 picks (that look like they will all be top 14) in one of the deepest drafts since 2003 (if not deeper).

You guys have Murray, Dansk, Jenner, Johansen.

Ok, we hired JD to do his thing and he is doing it. I have no problem with it. Let's see who he picks as HIS GM.

Rick Dudley is definitely a guy I'd give a look. Has an Ohio connection as he was the captain of the Cincinnati Stingers. I had heard he wanted the job that eventually was Patrick's, but Howson was afraid that Dudley might eventually replace him.

While I'm a Burke fan from his days in Anaheim, I don't know that he and JD could co-exist. It is interesting that Burke's moves in Toronto now look pretty good (though that goaltending is still a question mark).

Ron Hextall should get consideration for what he's done helping Lombardi in LA.

I'm a softie for Ron Francis as well. Guy has always had a great hockey mind and has been groomed down in Carolina to accept this sort of role.

There are others as well, but those are the ones I can think of off the top of my head.

Told #CBJ very close to naming Howson's replacement. It will not be Davidson. A deal is close, next GM could be introduced Wednesday.

Wow. Well, if nothing else, JD is decisive.

Hmm...this would lead me to believe it is Craig Patrick, but we shall see.

#CBJ pres of hockey John Davidson had been thinking about firing Howson for an extended time; wanted to get his replacement lined up first.

If it was Patrick, I've gotta assume he would have gotten the GM tag tonight.

Despite the surprise, this does not appear to be something sudden. If JD already has someone lined up to become new GM tomorrow, he has been working on this for a while.

Just had to put up with listening to Milbury spew his drivel about the situation.

Blue Jackets are going to have to start over from scratch. It's too bad for the fans in Columbus.

The last thing in the world I want to hear is pity from that POS. Guess I'll have brace myself cuz every Tom, Dick, and Harry with an opinion is going to feel the need to analyze the situation and grace us with it. Whether they have a clue or not.

Gonna be a tough few days.

Sounds like JD knew who he wanted and when he said yes, he let Howson know.

He's been in the front office of a winning team, is held in high regard around the league and it's his time. And I agree with a previous post that the idea of two goalies in charge in kind of cool. At least we can FINALLY hope to have some quality in net.

Jarmo Kekalainen may be amongst those who are on the short list for CBJ's GM job. Worked with CBJ prez John Davidson in STL.

Yes yes yes yes please. Jarmo is awesome

Maybe. But you still have to have the lawyers draw up the contract. Can't really do that until Howson is officially fired.
