Back at the beginning of the month, former St. Louis Blues' president John Davidson resigned from his position with the team to pursue other interests.
What team the former goaltender chooses has yet to be decided, but one thing is clear: Davidson has shown a lot of love towards the Columbus Blue Jackets.
In an interview with CBSSports.com, Davidson had nothing but good things to say about the young organization and believes their future is bright.
“If (my next stop) is Columbus,” Davidson said, “I can tell you this: That hockey club is better than the one we took over in St. Louis. That club was way, way down the ladder. But this Blue Jackets team is not that far off. There are some pieces there to work with, absolutely. They’ve got some real players there.”
As excited as Davidson seems about the possibility of coming to Columbus, the Blue Jackets should share that same level of optimism.
The former broadcaster can bring a lot to the table for a front office that needs a definite shakeup to improve from finishing dead last in the league standings last year.
Columbus should do whatever it takes to bring an experienced hockey mind to the Jackets and here are five reasons he is a good fit that can help this young roster.
