Every single Blue Jackets article right now is about injuries or the impact of those injuries or some attempt to see a light at the end of the broken-body tunnel. The situation is enough to make a fan cry, laugh, or expel some strange combination of the two sounds. If we’re to follow the thoughts of […]

This is my first post here on Buckeye State Hockey. I was thrilled when asked to be a part of this great website. My focus here will be on Columbus Blue Jackets prospects as well as the draft. I will mainly be attending Peterborough Petes games. I was hoping to see top 2016 draft prospect […]

This is rather unprecedented. Almost 50% of the team’s salary is on an injured list. That’s nearly $30 million of talent on the sidelines. Yes, that includes the starting goaltender, and the best defenceman on the team, and two-thirds of the top three lines. However, there really are plenty of positive aspects to this team. First, […]
Hockey is back in Nationwide Arena and it just feels right. Let’s take a look at Ottawa’s lineup and see what the Jacket’s are in for tonight. Pregame Hoffman won’t be in this evening, who as you recall burned the Jacket’s on a couple of goals earlier this season. Jared Cowen will draw in this […]
Hi! This will be my first installment of the CBJ Prospect Watch.

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 […]
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 […]

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 […]
