In case you were wondering about a Nash redux with the Jackets, Portzline noticed a trend after the season:
This month, when Todd Richards was introduced as the Blue Jackets' full-time coach, he rattled off the reasons he was excited to keep the job. The acquisition of Jack Johnson, the late-season scoring flurry from R.J. Umberger, the leadership of Vinny Prospal and the hope of a bright future for Cam Atkinson and Ryan Johansen were cited by Richards, who made no mention of Nash.
Umberger noted how Richards was staying in touch with the leaders in the Blue Jackets' dressing room. He, too, mentioned Johnson and Prospal, along with right winger Derek Dorsett and defenseman James Wisniewski. He did not mention Nash.
Which is weird, being that he's, you know, the captain and all.
...and we all thought the Pirates were horribly managed...oy vey.
