Commitment is the name of the game for Sergei Bobrovsky

When a team struggles like the Blue Jackets have this season, a lot of searching takes place. The coach is searching for a solution to get his team back on an even keel. The players may be searching for confidence in their game. And the fans are searching for someone to blame. It's a cycle that, at times, may seem endless. It's easy to say that the players need to play harder...

Crashing the Net: Blue Jackets own up to bad start

Columbus, Ohio -€“ It was a somewhat quiet group of players that took to the ice this morning for practice on the main ice of Nationwide Arena. The normal jocularity as the players warmed up was missing. Winning just two games of your last fourteen will have that effect on a team. Head coach Todd Richards reworked his forward lines for practice today in the hopes of maybe sparking...

Three takeaways from the Blue Jackets 4-3 SO loss to Boston

One: From the drop of the puck, the Blue Jackets came out playing to their strengths. They were aggressive on the forecheck, getting pucks deep and creating scoring chances. They've known that they can play this way; it was just a matter of execution and belief. The loss to Detroit has to be looked at as a blip and not indicative of what the team is. Two: The continued maturation...

Prout believes simplicity one key to building success for Jackets

For the Blue Jackets, winning games may mean getting back to basics. Defenseman Dalton Prout believes that part of the key to turning the tide for the Jackets will not come from making their game more complicated, but in simplifying it.

Harsh reality setting in for the Columbus Blue Jackets

The harsh reality of their disappointing start is beginning to set in for the Columbus Blue Jackets. With 15 games in the books, the Blue Jackets have just nine points to show for their efforts.

Why Nathan Horton Should Retire

A few months back I caught flack from readers and non readers alike about an article I wrote about Nathan Horton. I stated in the article that in his injury ridden season we didn’t have much more to be excited about as his production was in line with previous seasons. While this presumption upset some, others were quick to accept the fate of an oft injured winger who brought other...

Blue Jackets Twitter owns ESPN

It’s no secret ESPN’s relationship with the NHL and its fans is a little, well, icy compared to the other major sports.  ESPN’s coverage of the NHL is nominal at best as a non-rightsholder and largely consists of Barry Melrose and his glorious mullet.  The NHL did lead the MNF postgame edition of SportsCenter last night though, which tells you how bad Panthers-Eagles was...
