Thoughts on the Future


Well, the season is past the half way point...the Jackets have fallen completely out of the picture and will need to run the table to even get a chance to get in the playoffs. Mase, Nash, and so many others had let down seasons for us with little or no production for long stretches of games.

Opinions needed for this one:

If the season is truly over, which basically in a nutshell it is, if you were Scott Howson and you knew that playoffs are just a fond memory of last season's sweep out of them. What do you do now?

1.) Do you fire Hitch? or Keep him?

2.) What about Filatov, trade or keep him?

3.) Players you would look to drop, trade, waive, whatever (players you don't want in a Jackets uniform start of next season)

4.) Players that you WOULD want added, traded for, picked up, (players you want to see in Columbus blues)

5.) Do you change strategy or philosophy?

6.) Are you looking to be a spender to get a winnner now, or do you play it patient and just slowly build something out of the nothing we got at this moment?  (So go and spend til our cap is full basically, or just add one or two people and keep the cap with tons of breathing room.)

7.) Change 'C' and 'A''s? Who would take over?

 

that's all I can really think of at the moment, but i'm interested in seeing what the experts on here have to say about our Jackets and what type of future they envision for our team.
