Evaluating Columbus dCorsi Impact

It can be difficult to fully evaluate a player using advanced stats, partially because there are so many variables to consider. One can be a Corsi Genius, yet only be playing six or seven minutes a night against fourth line competition with a massive swing of offensive zone face-offs. Due to this, it’s been very difficult to develop a “catch-all” stat to evaluate a player...

The Aftermath: (4/4/15) vs Pittsburgh Penguins

Jackets continue to play spoiler. Racking up their franchise best 9th straight win, beating the rivaled Penguins 5-3.

The CBJ Tomorrow: Injuries

Previously on “The CBJ Tomorrow,” we took a look at problems with depth forwards on the 2014-15 Blue Jackets. The short version: the CBJ fourth line is bad, it’s a poor choice to surrender a depth battle with bad choices in roster construction, and the team shouldn’t give coaches a chance to use bad players in the first place. One key caveat to that entire issue? Injuries...

Brandon Dubinsky is still talking about his fight with Sidney Crosby

Sidney Crosby has a history with Brandon Dubinsky.  It all originated from Dubinsky’s days with the New York Rangers, gained steam in last year’s playoffs, and hit a boiling point in last night’s 2-1 loss at home to Columbus.  Dubinsky checked Crosby in the corner, then basically took a nap on top of him until Crosby decided enough was enough – prompting the two to drop...

Phil Bourque went nuts on the Penguins radio network last night. And @seangentille transcribed it.

After the Penguins game last night Phil Bourque laid into the Penguins on the radio post-game show: To lose the game like that, it should bother you. It should bother you a lot as a player. I don’t know if anything was said in that room, but it bothers me. I take a lot of pride in working for this organization and what this organization stands for. And what I witnessed out there...

Sidney Crosby Fights Brandon Dubinsky, Throws Big Right Hand (Video)

Sidney Crosby fights are almost as rare as Toronto Maple Leafs playoff appearances, so it’s a big deal when No. 87 drops the gloves. One of those rare instances happened Thursday night as the Pittsburgh Penguins superstar finally had enough of his Columbus Blue Jackets nemesis Brandon Dubinsky. Late in the second period, Crosby and Dubinsky got tied up deep in the Columbus zone...

What The Hell Happened: Perplexing loss to another Metro Division team. Pens collapse late, lose 2-1

        The turning point of the season was supposed to be Sidney Crosby fighting Brandon Dubinsky. Instead, it may be Brandon Dubinsky burying a shorthanded goal with under three minutes to play to give the Blue Jackets a stunning 2-1 victory over the Penguins. The Penguins are listless, and their spirit seems to be completely broken. Accusations of overracting to regular-season...

Three takeaways from the Blue Jackets 7-1 win over the Blues

One: Against a familiar foe in the St. Louis Blues from their old Central Division days, they came out with a jump in their step and had their legs moving. Their passing was much crisper than in recent games, too. Corey Tropp stood out in the first frame and is playing with the same energy he brings to the fourth line as he plays with Brandon Dubinsky and Nick Foligno on the second...

Three takeaways from the Blue Jackets 4-1 loss to the Coyotes

One: They were getting hemmed into their own zone early, playing with some slow legs. Brandon Dubinsky recognized the need for a spark and traded blows with Kyle Chipchura midway through the period. After this, they had a better jump in their step and were able to exert pressure and keep possession in the Coyotes zone. Two: The Blue Jackets had a hard time matching the physical play...

Zuccarello’s Days in NY Are Probably Numbered

Soon it may be time to add Mats Zuccarello to that list. Zuccarello has repeatedly signed one deals at a low cost so the Rangers can add pieces elsewhere. Now as an un-restricted free agent...
