    Debatable on Marvin. He holds the team record for coaching wins but accomplished nothing else. He only holds the wins record because Mike Brown kept him around much longer than any other coach.

    Apples and oranges on their records. 1 playoff game in the NFL essentially equates to an entire playoff round in hockey since that is what determines who moves on to the next round. In that instance they are both "0 for" in their careers.

    The Bengals will erect a Marvin Lewis statue because he seemed to have a status (nigh untouchable for many years) within the organization that no coach who didn't own the team had achieved before him.

    This guy had job security that even Wyche (probably a better coach) would have envied.

    Nothing debatable about ole Marv. 131-129-3 overall record including playoffs. Mediocrity personified-I absolutely agree. Would have been fired by virtually any other ownership after the playoff meltdown vs. Pittsburgh a few years back.

    He'll never be a head coach again in the NFL. Mike Brown was his personal benefactor.

    I wish he could have played one shift so he could retire a Blue Jacket. 61 to the rafters.

    I think sometimes I forget just how good he was.

    Could you imagine prime Nash inserted into the current lineup?! :naughty:

    Nash should have both his number retired AND be looked at for the hall of fame before Bobby.

    "It is what it is"

    Is not gonna get you your number retired. He might not even get a video at this point.

    Yes, and the way people ***** about this team, they clearly forget how bad the team was for so long.

    No matter how ugly it currently is between Bob and the FO, if Brett Favre can be forgiven and jersey number retired in Green Bay, even after his incredibly toxic exit, the CBJ and Bobrovsky will be just fine. (And yes, he will be honored one day whether you like it or not.)

    "It is what it is" or "I requested a trade for the benefit of the team." Both are going to have ungraceful exits.

    I believe this is our cue to get greedy and ask for a tribute video, as though you had that kind of time. ;)

    Good luck Rick and a happy, healthy retirement. It was a great day being at the arena bar when Dougie traded up to #1 to pick Nash. The place was rocking!

    Virtually every single player in that video falls into the category of “now there’s a name I haven’t heard in a long time.”

    I remember the season where he scored in half the games or so and there was a game where we were leading and someone said "and Nash hasn't scored yet". Great memories.

    There's a movement to sign him for one day then retire his number in our rafters.... I know it's a stretch but after 20 years we're one of the few NHL teams with nothing in our rafters other than mold and cob webs... Thoughts??

    Is there any chance that we could get a waiver from the NHL to dress him as a 19th skater, have him take the opening face-off and immediately head to the bench to be replaced by the scheduled starting center and then to the dressing room?
