Why Is Jack Johnson Getting So Many Minutes?

In a previous fanpost, I suggested that Jack Johnson should be a compliance buyout at the end of the season. Some questioned that judgement. Not only do I stand by my statement, but I, now, have...

Potential Compliance Buyouts

Okay, I know it's early and I haven't given up on this season, but any GM has to look months, even years ahead. The Jackets didn't use either of their compliance buyouts during the off-season. This...

Umby sucks? Really?

All season, all anyone has said about R.J. Umberger is that he sucks and he's a disappointment. Even the bloggers, here, unanimously placed Umby in the "biggest disappointment" category for their...

I Need An Explanation, Please

I was just looking at the standings on nhl.com. Now, as I understand it, "ROW" is a calculation of a teams regulation time and over time wins. In other words, all wins which aren't from a shootout....

An Open Letter To JD & Jarmo

Gentlemen, I've been a Blue Jackets fan since it was announced that Columbus would get an expansion franchise. I still have, and regularly wear, my first season tee shirt and a number of ballcaps...

Having paid close attention through the short off-season to all moves, here's how I see things shaking out in the Metro division. 1 - Pittsburgh: Unless Fleury has a total meltdown, the Pens will...

I don't get it

As The Season Winds Down

No, I haven't given up on the Jackets making the playoffs, but if they do go, it will be something just short of a miracle. Yet, I've been thinking, whether the Jackets go to the play-offs or not,...

Jackets Trading For Luongo?

That is, I understand, the rumor going around. I caught it in Jeff Little's THW piece, yesterday. I just don't see it happening because I think John Davidson is smarter than that. Here's why: 1)...
