If you, like most of us hockey fans out there, have been left scratching your head about some of the Blue Jackets’ off-season moves you’ve come to the right place. Finally, Scott Howson explains exactly why he’s been stocking up on number 2 or 3 goalies. After announcing the free agent signing of Curtis McElhinney, Howson took time to clarify.
“Whether it’s trades, the draft, free agency, finding that right mix of players that will help turn a team around is tough. Rebuilding is an extremely difficult job. Basking in the glory of others, though, that’s easy. This division sent four teams to the playoffs last season, and the Blues came close to stealing the President’s Trophy away. Imagine what these teams could do with an extra 12 points each year.”
