The St. Louis Blues have a new owner in Tom Stillman and it might not be long before they also get a fresh team president. The current job holder, John Davidson, was given a 30-day window to decide if he wanted to stay with the Blues. It’s expected to expire on Friday, so time is running out for Davidson to make a decision regarding his future.

With that in mind, Davidson reportedly met with the Columbus Blues Jackets last week. That might be a good fit for Davidson, who already has experience when it comes to reconnecting a struggling franchise with their fanbase.

In addition to signing with another organization or staying with the St. Louis Blues, Davidson is also considering retirement or a return to broadcasting.

It’s also worth noting that Stillman hasn’t said if he plans to keep the team’s president yet, so Davidson’s fate isn’t entirely in his own hands.

    It would be nice to have someone who knows more about hockey than the morons who currently are in the CBJ front office.

      I concur…

      Wonder if Priest will make him take one of his infamous PI tests? :-)

      Hire someone who actually knows hockey? Is that allowed? Listen, it would be great to get Davidson, but they could go much cheaper and still upgrade. Drive to the Columbus Zoo and get a brain damaged monkey. Paint half a room white and another half red. Ask the monkey a personnel question. If he throws his poop on white, it’s yes. Red means no. Instant upgrade to the CBJ front office and all is costs is bananas and a janitor to clean up after Q&A.

    This would be a great move for Columbus. I’m a Devils fan, but JD is solid and would be a good hire for them. He can get that cannon firin’
