Murray bows out of GM consideration

... ... ...

As of this moment, I'm frustrated. And angry. I spent much of yesterday afternoon and evening wrapping my brain around this news when the story was first broke. A whole 15 hours or so later, I find myself unable to come up with any reasonable thoughts on this matter.

The only thing I can really say with absolute certainty pertains to my disdain for the steel curtain which has enveloped Nationwide Arena and the Blue Jackets front office. In short, it is that very shroud of secrecy which has backfired on President Mike Priest and the rest of the team management, as they have not come forward to try to alleviate any concerns that the Blue Jackets' fan base might have ... and believe me, there are a lot of concerns out there now that the top candidate, with no more than a week to go before the finals will be ending at the very latest, bowed out at the last minute.

We don't want trade secrets, nor do we want every last aspect of this search to be revealed to us, as it is understandable that many things need to be kept under wraps to ensure a fair and efficient GM search happens. But now that the lid's been blown off of this, we need answers. We need something to help us fans feel like this search isn't jumping off of the railroad tracks and spinning violently down the proverbial mountain.

Cut the damage control talk about how you're in no rush to find your GM before the draft begins in 17 days, alright? As it stands, this front office needs that outside influence, and it needs it in time to make some sort of difference at the draft.
