Columbus Blue Jackets Looking to Add Veteran Leadership
CALGARY, Alberta General manager Jarmo Kekalainen said he wouldnt make any knee-jerk reactions amid the Blue Jackets disappointing start, but said the lack of leadership among players has him interested in acquiring a veteran.
A disturbing 7-0 loss at the Edmonton Oilers on Tuesday night still was resonating with Kekalainen and the club yesterday morning as they prepared for a game last night against the Calgary Flames.
I always think theres a good lesson in everything, Kekalainen said. Its hard to see when you lose a game like we lost (at Edmonton). Leadership is being questioned right now. Its certainly something were looking at. Leadership is a full-time job. Its not a part-time job. It has to be there every day, in every practice and every game.
