What's next for the Blue Jackets in post-Torts era?

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) The Columbus Blue Jackets will take a deliberate approach to hiring a replacement for John Tortorella, who stamped his brand on the franchise over six seasons and carried it to unprecedented success.

"I think we're going to take our time," general manager Jarmo Kekalainen said Monday, a day after the apparently amicable break with Tortorella, the winningest coach in the team's 20-year history.

"The league is still playing, there are some regular season games left and other organizations are going to make their decisions at the end of the regular season, maybe after the first round of the playoffs," Kekalainen said. "So we're going to make sure we do our due diligence with all the candidates we think are worthy of our consideration and would be a good fit with us. So we're not in a hurry."
