The strength of the post-deadline Blue Jackets is on the blue line. The addition of Jack Johnson has beefed up the defensive corps, although his arrival has coincided with a dip in the play of new partner James Wisniewksi. Wisniewski has a leg injury and did not skate this morning and will be a game time decision on Thursday in Colorado.
“We’re stronger on defense,” general manager Scott Howson said. “We lost Marc (Methot, to a broken jaw) but we’re stronger. We don’t have as much skill with Jeff and Antoine gone from up front. We’re going to have to be smart and responsible and make sure we manage the puck well.”
Have I gone through the looking glass? Did anyone else see an improved blueline last night? I will agree that the forwards are weakened by the recent moves, but that is still nothing close to a competent NHL defense the Jackets are putting on the ice!
