Apparently, there’s loads of optimism in Columbus. New top line center, new overpaid defender, one less whiny draft pick, and a sense of urgency. Scott Howson has pushed his chips all into the table, and has to hope for a better return on his investment than previous years. This is an organization with a notion to fire GMs. I can’t blame the man for trying.
Be nice, don’t mention that horrible 0-17 number. They won’t like that.
