Columbus Looking Ahead

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Eric Duhatshek of the Globe and Mail,

Columbus Blue Jackets' general manager Doug MacLean made a curious observation last week, when he noted that as badly as things had gone for his team this season, he wouldn't trade his players, even-up, for the Minnesota Wild's — or for that matter, for the conference-leading Detroit Red Wings' either.

Forsberg on the remarks by Ed Snider- from the Delaware County Times,

(Do not believe the 10,000+ announced attendance. The lower bowl, which may be sold with season tickets, was half full. The upper deck was a joke.)
