Wow, with all the changes that took place this week with this team, it's going to be interesting to see how the team gets things turned around. We saw GMSH canned, Arniel sent to the curb, and Mi--
...wait, none of that happened? Howson wasn't fired? Arniel is still at the helm? Priest is still the team president? I thought Hitchcock was the coach now and Ron Hextall was going to be chasing players that made him mad around the ice throwing blockers at them. Hitch had the--
Hitch is no longer on the payroll? Got a new coaching gig! Good for him! He gets to coach, the CBJ no longer has to pay that $1.3M, everybody wins. Where did he land?
He got hired by the BLUES? You have to be joking. They're just below .500 while we're 2-11-1 What is this I don't even--
Ok, so they didn't change anything in the front office, but that rumored roster makeover will end the slump, gang. Just take a look at the week in CBJ transactions:
To CBJ: Mark Letestu
To PIT: 4th Round Pick (2012)
....that's it? Vermy or Brass weren't moved for some defensive help? No Cory Schneider, Marty Turco, or Sergei Bobrovsky?
Alrighty then...we'll stick to the status quo and see how that works:

"I'll have a chance to compete for the post of first issue. This is the most important thing." -- Sergei Bobrovsky, June 2012
You're not alone. Well, you may be a bit lonely at the game tonight, unless you like Hawks sweaters.
Yea. Toronto fans danced on our corpses the last home game, now the Hawks fans get to have some fun tonight.
I mean, I really hope that I am pleasantly surprised tonight, but the CBJ have pretty much beaten the positive out of me. I stayed positive for 11 years, but they have finally just wringed it all out of me.
I literally cannot believe that the only change between the Philadelphia beating and tonight has been a trade for Letestu. We lose, again. Badly. Maybe management will feel stupid enough when the team and coaching staff that they have so much confidence in get ROLLED by a team that just lost 3-0 to the division rival that's now being led by its recent ex-coach.
There's no way that these players, this coaching staff and this front office could possibly look more pathetic than they do right now. Oh yeah, there is one way - and I have a feeling we'll see it tonight.
Rooting for (and this hurts to say) a bad loss again tonight. Arniel needs to go, and so does Howson. I'm so tired of this franchise having no direction, and being the laughing stock of the nhl. So now were going to a more of a trapping game, and sitting Johansen, who has been one of the few bright spots this season, I suppose we are benching calvert tonight too, and I know Atkinson was sent back down. this is just embarrasing. We need to clean house, bring in a new gm and coach . And start shedding contracts, and build from the goalie out. Please, give me some hope. Cant wait to see Bass, Boll, Dorsett, and Pahlson tonight
If you look at the stats Mason is more that half the reason we are losing. We criticizes our defense but if you look the cbj give up the 5th fewest shots per game in the NHL. Now the defense has been playing spotty at times so they ain't off the hook, but if a team os giving up only 27.9 shots per game and has only 2 wins proves goal-tending is an issue. Your move Scott Howson
