The Cannon Cast Episode 122: With Larsen installed, here’s what we’re hoping for, extra NHL nuggets + playoffs

The Blue Jackets have a new head coach. We discuss.

Surely the Columbus Blue Jackets weren’t going to pin their rebuild, or retooling efforts, whatever you want to call it upon Brad Larson to lead the charge. But here we are. On this episode of The Cannon Cast we get into:

  • Brad Larsen is the new coach
  • Larsen addressing criticisms head-on, players seem to support him, and Larsen might relate to players
  • Get good assistants, develop fun, high-event hockey, and small victories we want to see
  • Jackets sign Grégory Hoffman
  • Playoffs: New York Islanders vs Tampa Bay Lightning, Montreal Canadiens vs Vegas Golden Knights/

And much more!
