Todd Richards (interim)

Personally I don't want Todd Richards retained as head coach next year but that will be decided by the CBJ management which will probably include Mike Priest and Scott Howson.

The question is, who should coach the Blue Jackets next season in your opinion?.

The closest thing you can get to Dave Tippett.

I'll come way out of left field and throw the name of Steve Spott from the Kitchener Rangers out there. He's excellent with young players, particularly by junior hockey standards, and seems to have a sixth sense for imparting the right way to play the game onto his players.

Perhaps most important, he's able to identify everyone's strengths and weaknesses. He'll allow a player to utilize his strengths within a system even if it means deviating when there's a play to be made, and he'll make sure that any weaknesses get worked on that it's not a detriment going forward.

Most junior teams will keep their youngest guys out of the lineup as much as possible, and if they can't, they'll keep them off the ice. Spott is unusual in that he'll not only keep 16-year-olds around, but he'll give them a ton of ice time as well. His first year as head coach, he had no less than five 16-year-olds logging serious time, then did the same thing the next year. You've probably heard of Ryan Murphy, Gabriel Landeskog, and Shane Prince.

I wish it mattered.

Until the leadership team is replaced or augmented in a meaningful way, it just doesn't matter who the plug behind the bench is, IMO.

In the HNIC poll, one of the questions was, "What current assistant coach should be the next Head Coach?" Brad Shaw came in first with 7%. Any idea who or what team he is a assistant of?

But watch it be like.....
Craig Mactavish(Howson's Oilers connection!)
Marc Crawford
Andy Murray(although he is coaching at NCAA team. Not sure if he has a out clause)

Shaw is a Blues assistant, and I seem to recall few Blues fans care for him.

Why is it that the assumption is that we have to shop in the Little Leagues for management?? Is that because it has worked so well for us in the past???

If you are blowing up the barn roster, shouldn't we be focused on getting some Big League talent to train them?

While I've heard good things about Dave King I wonder if anyone in their right mind would come back here.

Is Mike Keenan available?

Yep; that pretty much sums it up as far as I'm concerned.

Though if we need a radical shakeup to lose the Country Club atmosphere, there's always Mike Keenan.

This. Dave King needs to be brought back in the organization to be in charge of scouting and player development - but at a higher level than most organizations. We have lost ground to make up.

If Priest and Howson are retained I dont think it really matters that much. That being said, I still dont want Richards in any form or fashion.

Michel Therrien.

I don't really know. It depends on the kind of team you want to have. Which depends on the players you go out and get. Which depends on the direction management chooses to go in.

So yeah, I guess what wooten and Foley said.

Which of those steps comes first? Can they be done in any order? Do we have any confidence in current leadership to settle on any route and stick with it, successfully?

I don't know.

Management has to have an over-arcing plan. Everything the organization does has to fit that. There's a very little chance you're going to have a roster that consists entirely of exactly the kind of players you want in the role designed for them. But your core has to make sense and the coach has to make sense with the core.

I don't know.

We don't know and, sadly, I fear they don't either.

I was against Richards at first. But he has got them actually playing like they care and the power play is finally clicking.

It is not like next year or any year in the near future is going to matter.

Dave King. He should never have been fired in the first place. Sorry Palinka, while I respect most of what you say I think the CBJ need an established NHL coach. After the Arniel failure I don't want another coach with no NHL experience.

No way Keenan should be allowed anywhere near the locker room. You thought Arniel's attitude and personality were toxic, that's nothing compared to what Keenan would do.

I dont want Richards in the next season.

I prefer Kurt Kleinendorst from Binghamton Senators, because we will have young team and he is great with work with youngs, look at Sens, Zack Smith, Eric Condra, Jim O Brien are his work, he believes young Russians (ask Filatov on him, only kudos) and know to work with them (we will draft one of Yakupov/Grigorenko, we have Mayorov, Tyutin, Nikitin and we could get another Russian thanks to trade), he won Calder Cup with Bingo the last year. Now Bingo are too young, too much injured. He very helped Robin Lehner too.

Dont forget we wont play for SC but build a new team from youngs and he is ideal for it.

If we keep Richards, I wonder what that would do to RyJo. There is a disconnect between those two.
