For a guy whom so many people are counting on, Nick Foligno doesn't look nervous. Acquired from the Ottawa Senators in a midsummer trade for defenseman Marc Methot, Foligno joined the Blue Jackets just a couple of weeks before a blockbuster deal that sent the club's all-time leader in goals, points and games, Rick Nash, to the New York Rangers. Nash's absence most likely means the Blue Jackets have to come up with the 30 or 40 goals he provided every year. Foligno, coming off a year in which he had 15 goals and career highs in assists (32) and points (47), is just one candidate to help fill in that void. During unofficial workouts with his new teammates, Foligno has fit right in. No wonder he expects big things.
