On a more serious note... my impression of the Blue Jackets was that the biggest problem on that team was the culture in the organization. JD will change that. Firing Howson will continue changing that.
Odd timing..IMO the BJs have someone else in mind who's available or they really soured on something Howson was planning to do trade wise. After the pretty meh Nash trade anything is possible. I think they promote someone internally as an interim and go after an end of the season fired GM in May or June
