The end is near. Blue Jackets fans have been feeling that way for a couple of weeks when it comes to the team's chances of making the playoffs. But for coach Scott Arniel and his staff (and maybe even GM Scott Howson) the end might come as early as Monday.
The Dispatch's Aaron Portzline is reporting on his Puck-Rakers blog this morning that Blue Jackets President Mike Priest is on the verge of making big changes, possibly on Monday. Porty's report was quickly picked up by the Puck Daddy blog. It's really not a shock. A record of 1-9-1 is going to get you fired in rec league hockey, let alone the NHL.
Will Priest replace Howson with former Calgary GM Craig Button? Will he turn the reins back over to former Blue Jackets coach Ken Hitchcock? Do either of these guys know how to walk on water? Stay tuned. It should be an interesting 48 hours or so.
