Columbus Blue Jackets hunt for a defenseman

The search for a defenseman has picked up for the Columbus Blue Jackets as the season has officially come to a close. The Blue Jackets, who fell just short of the playoffs in an injury filled season, still lack a top-two defenseman to lead from the blue line. There is no doubt that Columbus will again be considered a sleeper pick team and be expected to make the playoffs this year...

Columbus Blue Jackets: First round draft options

Drama has continued throughout the past month in the NHL with more storylines than the league could have possibly hoped for. The draft lottery proved to be no different with the Edmonton Oilers ending up with the first pick over the Buffalo Sabres, winning the prize of Connor McDavid.

The Aftermath: 14-15′ Season Finale @ New York Islanders

In the last regular season game in Nassau Coliseum, the Columbus Blue Jackets defeated the New York Islanders 5-4 in overtime. In front of a sellout crowd, the Blue Jackets were able to defeat a playoff bound team that was searching for home ice advantage in the first round. A lot was on the line for the Isles, meanwhile the Jackets only had their pride but damn if it wasn’t enough...

Looking Towards the Future – Defencemen

That was one hectic day to say the least. Personally I know I went a little crazy on twitter, I did not like Wiz the trade (To read about the trade check out Nick’s and Jeremy’s posts). I have had a chance to cool down and decided to take a look at where the defence core is headed not just for next season but for future seasons as well.

The Aftermath: (1/31/15): VS Tampa Bay Lightning

Sam was kind enough to let me have the reins and do this post. I figured with it being Ryan Murray’s return to the line up, Murray of course being my favourite player, it was fitting I write this Aftermath. Unfortunately outside of watching Murray nothing too positive came of this game for the CBJ, as they fell 3-1. The highlights can be found below. Highlights:   The Good, The...

The Aftermath: (1/29/15) @ Florida Panthers

In a game where the Columbus Blue Jackets did well in the possession battle they fell just short yesterday to the Florida Panthers, 3-2. More games like this should yield better results for a team that desperately needs them. After the jump let us watch some highlights, shall we?

High Five: Isles Get First Ever Regulation Win in Columbus

TONIGHT’S RECAP Good news, Islanders fans: a three-goal third period lead was held.

The Aftermath: CBJ vs. BOS (12/27/14)

In the first game back from Christmas break, the Blue Jackets faced off against the Boston Bruins, a team whose season has been inconsistent and (for a lack of a better term) weird. Shenanigans between Prout and Lucic from the last time these two teams met have left hockey fans from all over waiting for this game. Despite the shenanigans being once again loud and exciting, they...

Aftermath: 12/22/14 vs Predators

Columbus’ nine game point streak came to a crashing end, as the Preds rolled into Nationwide and rolled over the Jackets to the tune of a 5-1 win. Bobrovsky had “one of those nights” where he made some fantastic saves, but finally allowed a few to get past him. It wasn’t entirely on him, of course. The defense made some awful mistakes, pinching freely and not being able...

RECAP: GAME 29. Welcome back, Columbus.

The Pens have a new rival. It was born in the playoffs last season thanks to the new alignment and playoff structure, and it’s exactly what the system is designed to breed. It is pretty much impossible to get up for every single game in an 82-game season, so these games born in bad blood are what it’s all about. This turned out to be a great game. And that was with both teams...

What the hell happened: Jackets win Injury Bowl

This was a great game to watch, but imagine how much better it would have been if both teams had their full complement of players. Pens are without Maatta, Crosby, Kunitz, etc. The Jackets are missing Horton, Hartnell, Ryan Murray, etc. The bad blood overfloweth in this game, too. It’s a sign of great games to come.
