Quick Notes from Sunday’s split-squad game vs. St. Louis (9-21-14)

I’d like to start off by mentioning that this isn’t going to be the usual format of our post-game articles under regular circumstances.

Wading Through The Crap: The Ryan Johansen Saga

“Silence is one of the great arts of conversation” – Marcus Tullius Cicero A summer filled with public mud slinging is not one, that many fans envisioned coming into this offseason.

The 2014-15 Metropolitan Division Preseason Playlist

With the 2014-15 NHL season just around the corner, it’s preview time all over the internet. Today, we’re going to take on the Metropolitan Division. It’s maybe the most confusing place in the league, as I’d wager at least 5 teams have legitimate chances to make the top 3. In this preseason playlist, we’re playing […]


Using dCorsi to Predict Next Year’s Lineup

First off I would like to share a recent post on Pension Plan Puppets from Stephen Burtch (@SteveBurtch) explaining dCorsi: I really enjoyed reading about this further as I often see him discuss and compare players using this on Twitter and only had a passing knowledge based on what I could pick up from […]

Nathan Horton

Unpopular Opinion: Don’t Expect Much More from Nathan Horton

The much ballyhooed signing of Nathan Horton is a proud moment among new fans and old. A player who has a Stanley Cup on his resume decided to come to the capital city to play hockey for the Blue Jackets. I myself was excited at the time of the signing, I believed wholeheartedly that Horton […]

Future Outlook: Is Oliver Bjorkstrand the best CBJ Prospect?

With three selections in the first round of the 2013 NHL Entry Draft it was clear that Columbus had the opportunity to load the pipeline with high end prospects. All three of those prospects have progressed well since the draft, but a true standout of last season was their 3rd round selection, 89th overall, Oliver […]

David Savard

2013/14 Season Review: David Savard

A breakout season can be quantified in a multitude of ways. An increase in offense can often constitute a breakout season, whether it is a forward or a defenseman. David Savard came into this season needing a breakout year in the worst way, finding himself so far down on the depth chart it seemed as […]

2013-14 CBJ Season Review: Ryan Murray

Between a breakout season from Ryan Johansen, another dominating year for Bob, and an underrated top tier performance from James Wisniewski, there’s no shortage of great stories to share from last season’s Blue Jackets team. One of my favorite things was the emergence and growth of Ryan Murray. During many games, the #CBJ feed on […]


Fighting and the Blue Jackets, a 2013/14 Review

One was from Mark [@TravisHeHateMe] here, and the Georgetown Sports Analysis website here, I wanted to see if it held true for the Jackets 2013/14 season.
