JFJ to be next Columbus GM?

Sorry guys - it's Bruce Garrioch writing this (near the bottom).

I don't really know what to say here...ecstasy as we could get Nash for
a 7th round pick or the Mayan's are right after all.
I didn't say it was your fault, I said I was blaming you.

The man you want to trust in turning your pathetic franchise around would be JFJ?!  So help the poor fans in Columbus.

Finger was a Fletcher mistake.

That doesn't mean JFJ can't un-do it!  ;D

I don't know in how much of a hurray JFJ would be to help the Leafs.

I would only be counting on his bad judgment and the fact that Burke continually praises JFJ for any draft pick that's left over from his era.  Perhaps Burke has been softening him up in anticipation of JFJ landing another GM job?   ;)

If this happens, I'm going with the Mayans are right theory.

edit: or when they stopped the calendar at Dec 2012, they really meant just for the Columbus Blue Jackets.

Who knows? Maybe he'll do well managing a team no-one really cares about.

Wonder if anyone can confirm or deny this rumour? ;D
There's valid reasons for the limited interest. Get out of your basement if you dare. The real world will bend you over.

Sillies.  JFJ won't make a Rask for Raycroft type deal in CBJ.  He would inherit Steve Mason. So he already has his one-hit-rookie-wonder fraud goalie.

Leaving the jokes aside for a minute, would this not be a disaster waiting to happen the second it were to go down? 

His stance has been that Leafs ownership wouldn't allow him to go through a rebuild (still does not justify/explain his many moronic moves).  I highly doubt the ownership in Columbus would settle for more rebuilding.  The team, at the end of this season, will have made the playoffs once in their 12-year existence, has not won a single playoff game, and has seen its attendance erode.

Oh for sure. There is nothing about CBJ hiring JFJ that suggests it is anything but the final straw that destroys the franchise. 

If there was ever a franchise that needed to hire an experienced, highly successful GM with a track record of knowing what it takes to build a winner, they would be it.   Find that guy and pay him whatever it takes.
