Discussion in 'Columbus Blue Jackets' started by WerenskiRules, Sep 11, 2017.
To be fair, he held out for another two weeks, but other than that...
Yes, I think they'll send him to Clevburg to get in condition.
Any idea on why he changed his number?
He was #77 in Juniors and in Cleveland....probably never had the option of choosing his number on the big club till now
Most prospects are assigned random numbers. Hence Wennberg changing from 41 to 10.
Hope it was worth it Josh,
Unlike the media and most of the fans, I never had a desire to take sides; just let the process play out.
After the game, Josh Anderson reveals that he's heading to Columbus tonight to rejoin the team. Says Torts has workout planned for him.
... well that didn’t take long.
His prospects number was 53, so this is his second number change.
No surprise, Cleveland does not play again until this week end, so no reason for him to stay there.
Has 3 G 6 P in first 10 games.
Anyone willing to go with Chara is either courageous or bat **** crazy.
Maybe Josh and Jarmo let the whole "business negotiation" go after the ink was dry, but based upon the post-game presser, I'm guessing a certain NHL coach still has a burr under his saddle.
Could you elaborate? I could watch the video, but I don't want to. I'm not old, I have no excuse. I'm just lazy.
Asked about Andy dropping with Chara, the coach avoided the fight altogether and said, again, that Andy's going to be a really good player if he ignores his agent.
Cool, thank you.
I love how Torts continues to bash Ferris in his press conferences...2 of the last 3 postgame interviews now. Hopefully Josh drops this clown.
Torts needs to let it go.
I don't have an issue with it. He's sending a message to all young, promising players to steer away from Ferris.
Not only ferris but he called out his entourage too. Get the feeling he's surrounding himself with yes men.
And he should only be focused on coaching the Blue Jackets and not making or commenting on players' business decisions.
I'd be more concerned about this if he was going into in-depth detail. Right now, I'm sure he brings it up every time he wishes he'd had more preseason time with Anderson.
I agree, but I do like Tort's interviews. They're actually worth a listen unlike the cookie cutter cliche comments of most athletes/coaches.
Ferris tried to move the needle with RFAs and it failed. At least he was trying to do something for his client.
Torts was fine in saying it once, maybe twice, but I agree he needs to let it go.
I think part of this is Torts' way of also praising Andy..."do you really know how unbelievably good you are, and yet would be even better if in better condition and had practiced with this team during camp!" My guess is that Torts sees Andy as potential line mate with Panarin, but they didn't have the chance to work together during camp, so that is just now happening.
