Tough decisions on Blue Jackets blue line

Columbus woke up Wednesday morning in fifth place in the Metropolitan Division thanks to a 1-0 shootout victory in Detroit Tuesday night. This extends their winning streak to seven games, one short of the franchise record set in January. They play the remainder of their five December games at home. They are making up ground, albeit slowly, in the standings after digging a hole to...

Three takeaways from the Blue Jackets 4-3 SO victory over the Penguins

One: The Blue Jackets came out from the drop of the puck with energy and dictated the way the game was going to be played. They were all contributing with opportunistic play, crisp passes and hard-nosed hockey. This all culminated towards the end of the period with a yard sale of sticks and gloves strewn over the ice. When the dust had settled, three Blue Jackets and two Penguins...

Tentative play cost the Blue Jackets two points

Columbus, Ohio - Wading into a hockey game rarely gets you the result that you seek. But that's exactly what the Blue Jackets did Tuesday evening as they dropped another game to push their record to 6-13-2. The hesitation was visible among the players as they attempted to create chances. Indecisiveness with the puck and electing to pass instead of shooting it at the net bogged them...

Three Takeaways from the Blue Jackets 4-2 loss to the Jets

One: The Blue Jackets had a "what the heck" moment just nine seconds into the game, as the Winnipeg Jets scored off the opening faceoff. They were tentative throughout two-thirds of the game, either not taking a shot or being indecisive with the puck. It didn't help that Hutchinson, the Winnipeg goalie, was pretty spot-on throughout the game. Two: Mental lapses continue to hurt the...

The Blue Jackets are making progress

Columbus, Ohio - When is a loss bearable to a team? Or is it ever really bearable? Most would answer that a loss is never bearable. Friday night in Columbus, the argument can be made that the 4-3 loss to the Boston Bruins was bearable in that the team made strides in finding 'their game'. Two points are better than one, but one is better than none. This team has been searching for...

Gibbons and Leopold help Blue Jackets get better

The mantra emanating from the front office is one of getting better by addition. Blue Jackets general manager Jarmo Kekalainen has said that they won't make a deal for a player unless it makes the team better. Two acquisitions that have maybe flown under the radar are the free agent signing of forward Brian Gibbons and the recent trade for defenseman Jordan Leopold. Gibbons, topping...

One-on-one with Blue Jackets GM Jarmo Kekalainen

This has been the season of never-ending injuries for the Blue Jackets. Players are going in and out of the lineup, due to injury, like walking through a revolving door. It's mid-November and only 17 games have been played. In that small timeframe the team has endured a nine-game losing streak, seen many of their regulars go down with injury and made a trade on Saturday for a roster...

New Blue Jacket Jordan Leopold sees opportunity with Columbus

Columbus, Ohio - They capped off an emotional twenty-four hours, in which they played two games, with a 2-1 victory over the San Jose Sharks. The return of goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky was made all the more sweet, with this marking his 100th career win. When the Saturday dawned, the status of defenseman Fedor Tyutin was uncertain after having a knee-on-knee collision with the Flyers...

Strong group of defenseman deserves credit for Blues' recent successes, too

ST. LOUIS -- The Blues' electric forwards might be dominating the headlines and highlight shows, but an increasingly strong group of defenseman deserves just as much credit for the team's recent hot streak. Even more depth at the position than previously thought led to a surprise trade of veteran Jordan Leopold on Saturday morning, and St. Louis' top six defenseman validated that...

Three takeaways from the Blue Jackets 2-1 win over the Sharks

One: They came out of the gate playing their way and dictating the pace. San Jose was unable to get sustained pressure in the Blue Jackets offensive zone, as Columbus got the puck deep and established their forecheck. They played "big", throwing their bodies with calculated abandon. Two: They got away from getting the puck deep and the San Jose pushback was on. They were hemmed in...

The St. Louis Blues caught us all by surprise by making a trade on a quiet Saturday morning/afternoon leading up to their game against the Washington Capitals. The team has sent defenseman Jordan Leopold to Columbus in exchange for a fifth-round pick in 2016. Well that was unexpected! After rattling off wins in nine of their last 10 games, a trade seemed fairly unlikely. Of course...

The St. Louis Blues will return a large portion of their roster from 2013-14 in 2014-15. With the goaltending decision made, the Blues have a couple of very important areas to address this summer. One is help offensively and the other involves beefing up the defense. Here’s what TSN says the Blues need to do this summer: Two top nine forwards, depth forwards, depth defence, backup...

Will the Blues make a trade on defense?

The St. Louis Blues have several areas to address this summer. The first ones which come to mind are goaltending, the power play and finding some offense help. One area which usually doesn’t come to mind is the team’s defense. Due to the talent the Blues have back on D, the club’s defense usually gets a free pass. Should it?
