I hope Uncle Doug is burning up the phone lines contacting Norrena's agent.

Get it done, Doug.

On demand 33rd minute
33rd minute? How appropriate.

Should've been the first clue that it was Modin, not Norrena who was being discussed.

I'm with you, here. I like Doug, and I hope he's still around when the team makes the show. Look at Norrena, and all the praise we're giving him. I think it took a pair of big ones, on Doug's part, to make that deal. He's put this team together (granted, in all its incarnations), and has been integral in making this franchise a success off the ice.

I do think he allowed his ego to get in the way, from time to time. And I also think he's struggling now with the idea that another hockey insider is suddenly the face of the franchise.

That said, I'm hoping he can successfully step in to the shadows, letting Hitchcock coach.

Items I feel worth noting, in order of importance:

1. The draft on a Friday night would be an excellent event.
2. JacketFan and Aneitra Hamper and the trade was one of the funniest things I have seen on the board in a while.
3. CBJ21 - excellent post about your take on things.
4. Ar-Too is one well sourced gentleman. Or robot.

Darn it, I was so used to coming in here and using all sorts of stats as to how the team could get better.

And saying that confidence in their coach is a key factor.

Now all that has come about and I don't know what to talk about.

Umm.....anyone notice that there are a bunch of coincidences with the number 33 earlier in this thread? I noticed it.

Also, 33 is how old I was 2 years ago. And 2 is the number of wins in a row the Blue Jackets had before they won the last 3. And 3 plus 97 equals 100, which happens to be the strength of my Stealth hockey stick.

Man I suck at these number association games.

I hope they already told him he was done at the end of the year.
are you quoting Mr. Vyborny? I've heard him speak several times about how our pee pee got smacked around by other folks' pee kay. A terrible time in our history...

I grew fairly fond of Ags during "interim" this season. I loved the look of disgust he wore on his face the last game against the Predlies... it was soooo..... apt.

I'm glad he's around and pleased that he and Hitch seem to work well together. This is a great time and opportunity for everyone with the team.

I liked his TV interviews and I like his intelligence.....but I did not like losing 5 of 5 games under his tenure regardless of the bizillion reasons why, one or two wins under him could be the difference in our playoff quest....

Don't blame Agnew for that. I think it is pretty clear that the team needed more coaching up than anyone in-house could do. The players were more "interim-esque" than anything.

And I have 2 3's in my username and wear 33 pants and have been falsely arrested 33 times without charges being brought and have a $33 fine at the library and 3+3 is 6 and 3 6's is the number of the beast and Iron Maiden rules so there you have it. Proof positive that JFK was a reincarnated Abraham Lincoln. I rest my case your honor.
