Blue Jackets lock up MacLean
This is a bad, bad move.
The Columbus Blue Jackets have decided to keep around the architect for what has been the NHL's worst team the past three seasons, reportedly giving GM Doug MacLean a new multi-year deal with which he'll be able to continue to wreak havok.
Unfortunately, attendance in Columbus has continued to slip this season and, unless the team starts winning more games, that's a trend that may continue. Even fans in a good hockey market like Ohio can only put up with losing so long.
