Jarmo and JD must be held responsible for the Babcock fiasco

In the aftermath of the abrupt resignation of Mike Babcock as head coach of the Columbus Blue Jackets, much digital ink has been spilled that is highly critical of the role of management in this affair, from the initial hiring of Babcock this summer to the circumstances that led to his dismissal.

From Elliotte Friedman last week:

The moment anything remotely controversial involving him is reported, it’s going to be a frenzy. I’m not sure Columbus clearly realized that until now.

…The other thing this situation tells us is that those who don’t like Babcock are going to make sure anything negative is going to get out there.
