canucks411 Posted October 21, 2015 Share Posted October 21, 2015 he Blue Jackets have fired head coach Todd Richards after Columbus dropped a 4-0 decision to the Islanders to slide to an unfathomable 0-7-0. Richards will be replaced by John Tortorella, who has not coached since being fired by the Canucks after the 2013-14 season. http://www.tsn.ca/nhlElliotte Friedman @FriedgeHNIC 59m59 minutes agoBecause Tortorella hired in-season, VAN gets a second-round pick Elliotte Friedman @FriedgeHNIC 1h1 hour agoCLB is sending draft pick compensation to VAN as per NHL rules Retweet Favorite More Elliotte Friedman @FriedgeHNIC 1h1 hour agoNegotiations with Tortorella began yesterday. Hired at approx 130 am today. VAN still paying a portion of his salary.For all those complaining about wasted draft picks, we gain a 2nd rounder from Columbus for this. Which could be like a late 1st the way Columbus is playing...basically a freebie draft pick! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
