2, I said that I thought he was the perfect man to lead our hockey operations, and almost seven years later, I think, I was right He joined our team in a very difficult time and led a change that has led to consistent wins and appearances. At the Stanley Cup Playoffs, JD is a man of great character and compassion, and I understand his interest in the unique opportunity I know that it is a difficult decision for him to leave Columbus, as he is a true love of our community and organization, the opportunity to return to his roots in New York, where he is three Decades as a player and broadcaster spent, an extraordinary circumstance for him and his family I would like to thank my family, our community of owners and the entire Blu e Jackets organization JD and wish him, Diana and her family in the coming years only the best.
