Murray returns, Leopold at forward and Oscar Goldman

"There are teams that play fast. But these guys are one of the top teams, as far as playing with speed from their transition and from their defensive zone.

Columbus Blue Jackets: Injuries are the story so far

Expectations in Columbus were at an all-time high following the franchise’s most successful season ever. Nobody however, could have foreseen what is going on in the Blue Jacket’s locker room this season. With 154 man-games lost to injury by the end of November, this is one of if not the most injury-plagued squads in recent memory. The Jackets record is 7-15-2, 8th and last-place...

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...

Crashing the Net: Game Day vs. Carolina

Columbus, OH – It seems as if this season is the good news/bad news season. Every time that there is good news with a player returning to the lineup, there immediately follows the bad news of another player getting injured. The latest combo is the much-anticipated season debut of forward Boone Jenner and the return of Matt Calvert to the lineup. And the bad news that accompanies...

State of the Union Blue: Davidson discusses team philosophy and more

It's been two years since the Blue Jackets hired John Davidson as their president of hockey operations. The club has forged ahead under his guidance by leaps and bounds. He added credibility where once there wasn't much to be had. He brought to Columbus a philosophy of building the team "brick-by-brick." He knows, and has said, that it will not be an easy or fast row to hoe. There...

How could Jackets roster shuffle once injured players are ready to return?

There will be games where the team, for whatever the reason, chases the score from the drop of the puck. Such was the case Tuesday evening at Nationwide Arena. Despite the 4-2 loss to the Dallas Stars that brings their record to 2-1-0, the Blue Jackets are playing better and more together as a team than they were just twelve short months ago. The list of the injured has been widely...

Quest for the Cup: Jackets won't let challenges stop them from building winning culture

Adversity. The mere mention of the word can conjure trepidation among the weak. Many teams experience some form of adversity every year. Some adapt and forge their way through it, while others let that adversity define their season. Adversity has almost become part of the norm in Columbus. Last year, the Blue Jackets had various players out of the lineup with different injuries for...

Is the Blue Jackets Defense Their Great Weakness?

Forward depth in Columbus is at an all-time high, even considering a few key injuries. There’s wiggle room in the discussion of how good overall Blue Jackets depth can be (I touched on this last week – I think it’s quite solid). With Ryan Johansen back in the fold and solidifying the centers, it’s hard to imagine the top 9 forwards being bad. As we turn our attention to the...

Murray nearing return but preaching patience

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- In his rookie season in the NHL, defenseman Ryan Murray showed poise with everything he did. After not being on the ice for over half a year, he underscored why the Blue Jackets selected him second overall in the 2012 draft by making the team out of training camp. The 21-year-old defenseman goes about his business with a quiet efficiency. One week from the start...
