I'll second this thread. Was coming to make a similar post. Good luck to you guys other than tonight ;x. Hope JJ works out for ya and i'll be rooting for you guys getting 1st pick.

But I was wondering, when the Avs were in free fall mode after being at least semi relevant it was hard to stick with players I knew wouldnt be around. So my question to you fans is; who is expected to be a long term meaningful player on CBJ right now?

Of course even a fan's allegiance will not go on indefinitely. But the word "fan" comes from the word "fanatic". And there are far more fanatics when it comes to sports teams than there are fanatics for a given restaurant. And it could be that no one knows this better than the Blue Jacket brain trust.

and here you're acknowledging the point at the which the metaphor breaks down. Cheers.



And in other climes they use the word "supporter". Semantic diversion doesn't support your argument.
Can we not have one thread that doesn't turn into the same old crap that's in every other thread? We're supposed to be patting ourselves on the back here and damnit I fully intend to. *Pats back*

Not same topic but let's leave that for another place and time.

I agree with this 100%. Although I don't post on here very often, I do enjoy coming on here and reading the posts of my fellow Jackets fans.
