Remember when the Columbus Blue Jackets started this season 0-2? Fans and some media began their annual tradition of panicking before we reached mid-October. It was two games. With 80 games remaining, there was plenty of time to stabilize things; and after two nice wins against the Chicago Blackhawks and Dallas Stars, things seem normal again. But before we start celebrating too...

When it comes to hard work and determination, Boone Jenner is the person everyone thinks about. He is the back bone of the Blue Jackets, for better or for worse. He is the symbol that the Blue Jackets look to when they think about their desired style of play. They have always wanted to be tough to play against and that describes Jenner to a fault. As his scoring as improved, so has...
Curtis McElhinney’s time with the Blue Jackets has been an up and down affair. The public opinion surrounding him has always been solid as many have accepted who he is as a player.

Maintaining a narrow 4-3 lead for Team Russia with roughly a minute to go during a pre-tournament match against the Czech Republic, Bobrovsky made an incredible save with his toe to keep his squad on top. Say what you will about the World Cup of Hockey and its entertainment value, but if the warmup games are any...
