ST. PAUL, MN - SEPTEMBER 18: Andy Hilbert #19 of the Minnesota Wild fights off Grant Clitsome #44 of the Columbus Blue Jackets during the first period of a preseason game on September 18, 2009 at the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul, Minnesota. (Photo by Tom Dahlin/Getty Images)
I have to admit that in every Columbus Blue Jackets game I hope for Grant Clitsome to get a hat trick.  When a name provides comedy on its own, it makes my writing that much easier.  And while there was no hat trick Thursday night for ol’ Clitty, there was 2 Goals on an impressive 6 Shots.  He seems to be gaining the trust of the BJ brass and his role is increasing (especially on the Power Play).  So if you’re in need of a #4 Defenseman, go get some Clitsome… Steve Mason – G (CBJ):  My dislike of this guy is well known and documented.  If you drafted him and are still hanging on it’s time to cut bait.  2-11/3.88GAA/.866SV% is as bad as it can get for an NHL Goalie.  That is so bad I actually went to 2 different sites to confirm those numbers are correct…  Mark Dekanich is a decent add but he’s not healthy and even when he is, I wanna see him be successful before I endorse picking him up. Brad Marchand – C (Bos):  2 Goals Thursday night and has picked it up again recently after drop
