You'd have to think so as good as he was with the Whale.

Hell, a couple injuries and he plays a game with the big boys, he could get his name on the Cup!

Don't think so.

How many NHL games did he play this season?

Columbus Blue Jackets to name Todd Richards as full-time coach.

This thread is getting interesting. Supposedly Howson didn't even hold interviews.

I believe if you play a game in the Finals you can get your name on the Cup.

Found him. I highly doubt he tipped that doorman.

That would be the frustrating part for me if I were a Blue Jackets fans because it comes off as a cost-saving move at best and ignorance to how bad Columbus was at its worst.

Oh well, at least they have a former Gopher.

Strangely, this might make sense of why there were no interviews:

or

Would you let him re-sign his interim coach to a shorter deal,keep some consistency at coach for now (something the team has never had) but have a coach that is easily replaceable if you do get a new GM?

A few Jackets' fans like the move, because the players seemed happy with him. Well of course they did! He never holds guys accountable. He gives them days off after poor performances and let's them all make the decisions. He was more afraid of his players than they were of him. And after a bad game, they didn't have to worry about getting yelled at, because they'd be out of the building before the guy could find out what went wrong on the game tape!

I'm sorry #CBJ fans...

I'm sorry that your mascot is shaped like a phallus.
I'm sorry that when your team scores a goal, the same phallus shaped object explodes with creamy white vapor.
I'm sorry that even Ken Hitchcock, whose name contains another word for phallus, couldn't even whip your team into shape.
I'm sorry that the league shortened abbreviation for your team is basically telling all to watch porn involving a phallus.

With the hiring of Todd Richards, at least you stray away from the phallus, but instead, have a head coach that has his head up his own ass 90% of the time.



Way way more funny in my head than it probably comes across...

Edit: Oh, and at least you aren't the Canucks...

What baffles my mind (besides the fact that this means they're keeping their GM), is that he told the media about not interviewing other candidates. He's got guys coming to him asking for interviews, and there are still some good guys out there for the job. Even if you wanted to keep Richards, you STILL talk to these guys!! What will it hurt? But nope. He turns them away. And he takes the stupidity one step further by not keeping that to himself. Instead, he shares that info with the media, which only verifies how clueless he really is. No owner is going to hire a GM that fails to so much as conduct interviews when your team is in desperate need of help. When he gets fired, he's going to find that revealing all of that info is going to solidify that nobody hires him to run their organization ever again.

BTW, some people are trying to make Richards sound okay by comparing how many points the Wild had with him in charge vs. Yeo. There wasn't much difference. I can guarantee you we'd have 10 extra points this past season without that boat load of injuries. Comparing point totals isn't doing much to help Richards' case.

What a messed up day.

Dale Hunter quits as a coach, Todd Richards gets the interim label removed and is a full time head coach again, and the Wild have announced they care nothing about fan backlash and will be hiring LaPanta anyway.

What a ****ed up world.
