James Wisniewski and the Big Mistake – Season Review

The writers here have been producing player reviews for the team since the offseason began in Columbus.

"I hope so. We don't have time to keep trying to get the rust off." That was James Wisniewski, responding the day after the Columbus Blue Jackets suffered a resounding defeat at the hands of the New Jersey Devils Thursday, in the first game back for both teams after the Olympic break.

Wisniewski happy be back on ice at end of rough season
