Gameday Thread #7 – 10/24, @ Anaheim Ducks

What do you mean these aren’t the right jerseys? Tonight our beloved Blue Jackets will be beating the Anaheim Ducks. Boudreau hasn’t seen his toes in years, and he’s probably not got the balance required to actually stand on them. Wow some weird ugly troll looking guy scored some goals. Hey guess what? I’d look […]

Gameday Thread #6: @ San Jose Sharks

Pregame OH, how sassy of them! Luckily we were able to find help elsewhere when searching for the Sharks lines tonight. The top 6 of the Sharks is a smorgasbord of offensive skill. Thornton, Couture, Pavelski and Marleau can send chills down anyones spine but it should cause even more concern tonight against the injury […]


Unpopular Opinion: Wennberg may not be ready for the Show

During the Ryan Johansen saga of the pre-season, many were quick to anoint rookies like Kerby Rychel, Marko Dano and Alexander Wennberg as having spots on the team. Wennberg, specifically, had a considerable build-up as a guy who was “ready” for the NHL, even before pre-season began. Team media and bloggers publicly pumped his tires […]


Columbus: Now is Time to Prepare for California Storm

What’s Quacking The Jackets are coming off of an easy win against the Calgary Flames the night before. Despite the 3-2 score that might suggest otherwise, it was a dominant game for the union blue. I still haven’t finished tracking the scoring chances and entries. It was just such a boring, low event game. Score […]

Miami Wins at Ohio State

Recap: #11 Miami Overwhelms #17 Ohio State in Columbus 10/17/14

The #11 Miami Redhawks erupted for 5 goals to open the home-and-home series against #17 Ohio State. The visitors took control early in Columbus with a pair of first period powerplay goals and never looked back.

CBJ Week One: By the Numbers – Stats Dump and Introduction

Throughout this season, I am striving to track many different things for the Blue Jackets. This includes entries, scoring chances, and hopefully setup passes. I haven’t actually began tracking passes, but I will make a huge effort to do so. Along with all of this, Coach has began a Rebound Tracking Project, that is an […]
