    When I first saw Bob was on a DDO, I was very "WTF". Not something I would expect. Beyond my reservations about him, he's generally been viewed as a great team member.

    As far as the narrative about "trashing the room"". There are ways to do that. The "what is wrong with all of us. we have to do better" yelling is entirely different than, "You guys f'ing suck, I'm tired of carrying you". Context matters.

    It seems like based on his statement he said something to the team or maybe a player or two that wasn't considered...... umm... constructive? Not the right word, but you get the idea.

    All-in-all this really isn't the kind of season that you want going into your next contract. Outside of November it's been very forgettable. I'm pretty tired of the way he's viewed in Columbus and I'm annoyed with the CBJ for the way they've handled the goalie situation for years. I stand by with what I've said for years, I have no interest in being the team that gives him his next contract. Beyond everything I'm beyond tired with arguing with people around here about him.

    What happens, happens.

    I wholeheartedly expect for them to be split.

    MacKinnon calls outburst toward coach on Avalanche bench unacceptable


    This is how a "not too much to it" outburst is handled. The Bob deal (obviously) wasn't.

    If he tore up Tampa's dressing room, someone from the Tampa staff I am sure would have leaked that.

    No police report? Hospital visit?

    I'll guess, distemper.

    More realistic than the last time we were guessing or talking "about" ailments.

    Isn't it possible Bob requested a trade in the offseason (hence his training camp interview) and management told him "nah, play well or hurt your contract demands next summer"?

    Yeah I think that's a plausible assumption. Something along the lines of "If you're not going to pay me, trade me to ______ so they will."

    BS.

    His personal actions and behavior being NON professional is the entire issue.

    In the video I've seen there is a quote from Bob, "It is what it is".....

    Thing is, I don't think Bob was saying that to the press, he was passing along essentially the "message" he got from the team, literally or figuratively. That's not good. I'm not sure people quite understand the "relationship" teams have or NEED TO HAVE with their goalie(s).

    There was also the question, "Do you want to play for the CBJ the rest of the year?"

    Answer: "I....I am here.

    OK.

    It don't matter what quotes you will get to the press from the players, there's no moving on after this. Not with a happy ending anyway.

    Total guess here but I bet Bob used the time that the parents (Nick, Torts, and probably Dubi) were away to yell at the kids. He could have told them that he couldn't wait to go to a different team and that they were nothing without him. If that happened I would hope there was an altercation between Bob and another player or two.
    We will probably never know how big that win against Nashville was. Could very well have galvanized the team and put Bob back in his place. I hope Korpi plays against Caps and wins, but I fully expect Bob to play vs Caps.

    While we (I'm sure) differ on the underlying cause(s) of what happened, I couldn't agree with you more regarding this.

    Anyone who watched that and could leave with, "Yea. Just a bad day. He's completely cool with what's going on" is delusional.

    That's one very, very unhappy camper. He is not OK with things. A blind man can see that.

    Want semantics.

    Conspiracies exist. Theories exist.

    Why not conspiracy theories? Look into who invented the term, and why. Really.

    "It is what it is"

    Bobs gone. As Seth Jones would say, It is what it is.

    THERE WAS A TEAM/PLAYER ONLY MEETING ABOUT IT.

    This didn't occur in Jarmo's office.

    "IT IS WHAT IT IS"

    Well, what is it?

    The spade is a spade.

    And, MOST IMPORTANTLY, neither is SETH JONES and THE ENTIRE REST OF THE TEAM

    "It is what it is"

    Is not good for anybody "pro Bob".
