Drew has posted his take on what the future holds for the Jackets.
I want to look forward to games against Detroit and Colorado, and not simply throw up my hands in futility at the opening face-off because we are a scrimmage team to them. I want to play meaningful games in March (hell, even in January would be a change). When Barry Melrose gets his two minutes each week towards the end of the season to talk about the playoff picture, I want the CBJ crest to be on the screen fighting for that 8th spot. I don’t want to be the laughingstock of the NHL. I don’t want journalists and bloggers in other cities to refer to us as patient fans because we have to put up with the same shit year after year.
