STATEMENT FROM OWNER CHARLIE POMPEA

As a new owner, I wanted to reach out to as many of our fans and corporate sponsors to express how disappointed we were about our losing streak in March that took us out of the playoff race. Up to that dreadful stretch of losses, our team was beginning to come together with the chemistry that makes a winner.
Unfortunately, we had some injuries and trades that were beyond our control that created a negative impact on our results.
On a positive note, I must comment how hard our players, coaches and staff have worked in the community and on the ice to regroup and provide us with some very exciting hockey. We have had numerous meetings with the management of the Columbus Blue Jackets reviewing our weaknesses that need to be corrected for next year. We ASSURE you these will be addressed.
On behalf of my partner, Bruce Landon, and the entire Falcons staff, I want to thank you for your support and we are working with the Blue Jackets to build a team where EVERY player has the “heart” to be a winner that Springfield so deserves……
Thank you again for your loyal support!
PS…Bird…Bird…Bird…The Bird is the Word!!
