The DFO Rundown Ep. 278 – The Blue Jackets Have Fired Jarmo Kekalainen

      Published -

      Today’s podcast started off as normal as any other. Jason and Frank talked about Jake Guentzal leaving last nights loss with an upper-body injury. The Penguins still haven’t gained any sort of momentum this season and the questions about them selling at the deadline remain.

      The other Pennsylvania team just keeps on humming. Everyone is waiting for the the Flyers to fall off and instead, they’re staying in the race. Will it get to a point where the Flyers won’t want to sell? The guys debated that.

      Right around the 15 minute mark we got breaking news live on the podcast as the Columbus Blue Jackets fired long-time General Manager Jarmo Kekalainen. The guys reacted to that news live on the podcast. Frank summed it up as “one bad decision after another” adding that it’s “mind-blowing” that he kept his job for eleven years.

      From there, they talked about Phil Kessel’s chances of cracking the Vancouver Canucks. The veteran forward is skating at the clubs AHL facilities in hopes of earning a spot with the big club. Could he actually make an impact? Jason and Frank debated that.

      Tyler once again popped in with Buy or Sell, where he asked the guys about a pair of players who hit the 1000 game mark and the scoring race.
