What the Jackets' 2013 season did for me is make me legitimately excited for next season. Can't say I've felt that way since 2000-2001. I had an inkling that the 2008-2009 season was a bit of a farce - I don't think this past one was.

The youngsters like Atkinson, Calvert, Johansen and Prout didn't crack at all down the stretch which says something about them. Dubinsky, Johnson, Vinny and Umby all provided solid leadership. I was really impressed with the skill of Foligno and Anisimov. Obviously Bob was amazing, and I tend to think he won't have a Mason-like encore because he works so darn hard. Gaborik is still a bit of a question, but it wasn't like he was terrible for us.

I'm hoping that in 10 years we look back at 2013 as the season the Jackets became legit and Columbus started to become a hockey town.
