An American Enigma? Season Review: Cam Atkinson

Late into the Blue Jackets’ season there seemed to be a divide amongst fans, management and the coaching staff. It all surrounded one player: Cam Atkinson. I titled the article claiming he was an enigma, a title normally given to Russians and various other european players. Like those other “enigmas”  you need to find what […]

2013-14 Season Review: Fedor Tyutin

A scant few years ago, Fedor Tyutin was one of the best d-men in the NHL. This isn’t a view that gets much press thanks to the (past) poor state of the Blue Jackets. Rob Vollman helped promote the idea following the 2011-12 season, noting that Tyutin and Nikita Nikitin formed one of the top […]

The Value of Ryan Johansen – Season Review

Ryan Johansen. The best player to dawn the union blue since Rick Nash. He needs a new contract. He feels disrespected. The war of words is already happening in the local papers. Who is going to budge first? What is he thinking? He is only 21 years of age and has already spent what seems […]

James Wisniewski and the Big Mistake – Season Review

The writers here have been producing player reviews for the team since the offseason began in Columbus. I decided I would take James Wisniewski because I still have a bit of a gripe over all the people saying that Jack Johnson is the better player. I suppose that number is beginning to dwindle, but they’re […]

Dubinsky Extension Almost Crashes Twitter

  It’s been a very busy news day for the people of Ohio, but the Columbus Blue Jackets made the biggest news by giving Brandon Dubinsky a six-year extension worth $35.1 Million. The general feeling among CBJ fans is elation over this contract. Outside of the CBJ circle the money might be higher than expected. To those […]

2013/14 Season Review: Derek MacKenzie

#487482101 / gettyimages.com I started writing this piece before Derek MacKenzie unceremoniously left the Blue Jackets. Reading it I started thinking to myself about not only the player but the person. He always had great character and seemed like the quintessential Jacket. Hard working, hard hitting and great with the fans. He was a player […]

2013-2014 Season Review: An Anisimov Artycle

#42, Artem Anisimov Artem Anisimov quietly scored the most goals of his young career in his first 82-game season in Columbus. Combined with the lockout shortened 2012-2013 season, Arty has averaged about .49 points per game during his time in Columbus and has supplied valuable scoring for the team. The 26 year old, 6’4″ forward […]

2013/14 Season Review: Nick Foligno

2013/14 Season Review: Nick Foligno Nick Foligno is the embodiment of the style of play that the Columbus Blue Jackets covet. He’s a hard-working, gritty forward who plays a tough game, but has a bit of skill to back it up. He’s also been a player who seems to make almost everyone he plays with […]

Blue Jackets Move Umberger for Hartnell

#486143271 / gettyimages.com The Columbus Blue Jackets made a trade today involving RJ Umberger. Yes, the player who was routinely a late season scratch this past season. No, they didn’t have to retain any salary. Did they get themselves a player that was any good? That answer seems to be a resounding yes.   (click […]

Sergei Bobrovsky: The Most Interesting Player in Columbus

Perhaps the most interesting player on the Columbus Blue Jackets roster this past season was their starting goaltender. Sergei Bobrovsky walked into training camp as the recently-crowned Vezina Trophy winner. The trophy was a signal of Bobrovsky’s emerging ability to be one of the best goaltenders in the world, officially being awarded to the goalie […]

2013/14 Season Review: Mark Letestu

#487482151 / gettyimages.com One of the main reasons the Columbus Blue Jackets made the playoffs this season is due to its depth. In year’s past the team would never get the production from their 3rd and 4th lines necessary to relieve the pressure off of their main scorers. This year with only Ryan Johansen stepping […]

2013-14 Season Review: Nathan Horton

#480336643 / gettyimages.com With possibly the biggest splash in the free agency market last year after a late season playoff push that saw the Jackets miss the playoffs by a measly point, Blue Jacket’s GM Jarmo Kekalainen pulled the trigger on a star forward that so many people thought the club would need to become […]

2013/14 Season Review: Jack Johnson

CBJ Season in Review: Jack Johnson Jack Johnson is the most divisive single player in the stats vs “eye test” debate, and it’s not hard to understand why. His on-ice presence screams “big time player”; he’s got the look of a star, and with a quick glance, maybe the tools to be a star. But […]

2013/14 Season Review: Blake Comeau

CBJ Season in Review: Blake Comeau As discussed in my previous post, Matt Calvert was a major reason I became a Jackets fan. But another reason was because of my interest in Blake Comeau. He’s not a dynamic offensive player, isn’t the greatest defensively – he’s just kind of a “guy”. But is there more […]
