In other news: Jared Boll wasn't already retired.
Also, reports of our demise at the hands of an evil rabbit were greatly exaggerated. We deployed the holy hand grenade of Antioch.

Blue Jackets Name Manny Legace Goaltending Coach
Looks like the Jackets are building a goaltending...
Official, one year 650k
Let's line juggle, shall we?
Panarin - PLD - Atkinson
Foligno - Wennberg - Anderson
Bjorkstrand - Nash - Duclair
Jenner - Sedlak - Hannakeinen
Leaving Dubinsky, Milano and possibly Abramov or Texier to get roles on a fill in basis.
Or leaving us much more comfortable trading one of Milano, Wennberg or Sedlak in a deal (with Murray +) to get a sniper.
This sure seems like a very polite "trade him while you can".
Agent: Panarin unsure on staying in Columbus long-term - Article - TSN
Let's remember, Twat "7.99 per month for the Athletic" Waffle is at the center of all this. He contacted the agent, asked his typical leading questions and got some very political answers. Then he spun it into a clickbait article on his tabloid rag with a ridiculously melodramatic opening:
Does Artemi Panarin want to spend the next 8 years in...
SHUT. THE. FUCK. UP. TWATWAFFLE
If the Jackets say we want to give you 8 years, and Panarin says he's more comfortable with 3 to 5, he signs that day. Jackets obviously want to lock him up for max, but they want the kid in the organization. And the agent hinted as much, a short team deal would be done already. In order to avoid this very problem.
What I get is Panarin is gun shy about any long term deal, and he certainly doesn't want to talk about it now during the offseason. Who knows if he even wants to stay anywhere in North America for 8 years? Jackets have made no contract offer yet, and Panarin has made no demand yet. He was asked if he was talking contract and he said, in his version of English. that he wasn't interested at this time. If he was from Baltimore he might have said "Ain't nobody got time fo' dat shit". And Portzline started fucking that chicken, and handed his sloppy seconds off to Friedman who decided it meant that Jarmo was listening to trade offers. Which is Jarmo's job, to be fair.
Portzline also pushed that Carter hates Columbus and Nash wanted to leave shit.
1) Carter wasn't going to be happy anywhere after signing an 8 year deal and then getting shit on and back-stabbed by Philadelphia. There were maybe three places he could have gone and not been pissed right out of the gate. We were just the "lucky ones". If he went to Buffalo, the same thing happens. It has nothing to do with Columbus - the city or the organization. It has to do with the whiny crybaby who wost his widdle fwiend. Portzline tried to make it personally insulting to the city.
2) I know Rick Nash's brother, he lives in town and is a skating coach here. Rick's parents live here in the summer. Rick and his wife live here. The team said they couldn't win in his prime and couldn't really afford his contract during a rebuild. They asked him to waive his NTC and he exercised his right to pick his destination (Not Edmonton, as was the first deal). That's it. He didn't ask to leave, he was asked. Portzline started the rest of it, and turned the town against the only legit star the team has ever had (until now).
Blue Jackets Defenseman Ryan Murray Accepts Club Qualifying Offer
Nice. I was worried that he was gonna push it a bit. Looked good when he didn't file for arbitration. Now he agrees and is here for another year at least.
If he plays all season with Nutivaara, he will look a lot better when it comes time to sit down at the next negotiating table.
Just please stay healthy.
3 Years 2.5m AAV for Ollie.
Perhaps he is ready to talk now. Jackets have 5.6m in space as it stands now.
^That's a panabanana!
Didn't they sing Cruel Summer?
Man, a week earlier, and I could have partied with Bob and Bread.
But then Twatwaffle would write a melodramatic intro to his paywall site about YOU.
