Has Williams had much experience at wing?

Hey, 3 centers on the same line, why not.

After quickly checking on this, depending upon where you look he's either listed as a center or right wing. It appears he's played both positions, but I didn't find anything about what is considered to be his natural position.

I think Williams would be a lot more effective at wing

Yeah, most places list him as RW too.

I'd rather him at wing because I think he's a defensive liability more at center. Just have him float the point on defense and that will make me blood pressure go down a tick.

Just get Novotny out of the lineup. It's amazing the guy scores a goal and suddenly he is replacing Gratton who has been solid since we got him on the 4th line.

Rick Nash is ranked 10th in the NHL in the away points category.

Novotny was our best player last night, which tells you how bad the rest of the team played.

Most notable because he was playing an agitator role, yes, definitely not the best player last night. The forwards didn't play all that bad, it was the defense that was god awful.

Vermette Arrives

Antoine Vermette -- stuck at the border, delayed in Chicago -- has finally joined the Blue Jackets in Nashville.

The magic moment occurred a little after 11 p.m. on Thursday when Vermette strolled into the team hotel.

The Blue Jackets were supposed to practice today in Nashville, but that was scrapped. They had a team meeting in the hotel and are flying to Detroit as I type this.

Vermette will be in the lineup on Saturday in Detroit.

No update on Fredrik Modin's knee. I'm hoping to get word on his status shortly after the club lands in Detroit.

from NHL.com:

Quote:
3,000 and counting -- The Montreal Canadiens became the first team to play 3,000 home games when they stepped onto the ice last Saturday against the San Jose Sharks. The 3-2 victory gave the Habs a 1,836-756-382-26 all-time record in front of their home fans since being founded in 1909.

Of those 3,000 games, 2,926 are listed as NHL games. Montreal has more home victories against Toronto (206) than any other opponent. The Boston Bruins are the only team with 100 victories (including one in overtime) at Montreal. The only visiting team with a winning record in Montreal is the Columbus Blue Jackets, who are 2-1-1 in their four visits.

Cool stat, but what bugs me is that Columbus has been in the league from 2000-01 and still have visited Montreal only four times! It's no wonder some fans don't know anything but Nash from the roster.

Glad they changed the schedule for this season...

"There seems to be a huge buzz right now around the city. I can only imagine if we actually made the playoffs how big it would be," said Nash.

"We've been in the city for eight years now, and the fans are starting to get impatient with not having a playoff-bound team. Now that we've got a team that's pretty close and almost there, the seats are starting to fill again."

The numbers all lined up for Nash's hat trick. Of course, he wears #61.

Going into the game, he had 61 points.

When he scored the unassisted hat trick, it was the first of its kind in 61 years.

Time to change his number to 195. Then he'll get 195 points (or is it 195 goals?)!

TSN has Nash and Mason in the top 20 of the player rankings. Mase has fallen pretty far in recent weeks and I believe this is Nash's first foray onto the list in quite some time.

I'm left handed too but I play glove on my left hand. I can bat left or right though. Actually I can glove right handed too. I guess I can do both.

Sporting News picks the Top 10 most important players to their team's playoff run...

http://www.sportingnews.com/yourturn...c.php?t=526442

Quote:
1. Steve Mason, Columbus Blue Jackets
Compare the Blue Jackets' talent and depth to other bubble teams, and it's hard to see how Columbus has stayed in the race this long. After Rick Nash, there's not a lot of offensive production. The Jackets have the NHL's worst power play, and yet they keep winning. There's good young talent in Columbus, there's great chemistry, and Ken Hitchcock is coaching his rear off. But for the Blue Jackets to make the postseason for the first time in franchise history, it comes down to one guy: Mason. He leads the league with nine shutouts (nobody is within three). His .920 save percentage is among the league leaders, and only Tim Thomas has a lower goals-against average. Oh yeah, he also locked up the Calder Trophy about a month ago. Now all the 20-year-old has to do is keep it up while playing in hockey's toughest division.

Thought y'all would appreciate this...karma's a ***** innit?

http://www.denverpost.com/sports/ci_11892091

One reason veteran defenseman Adam Foote wanted out of Columbus was that he wanted to win, and in the NHL that means at the very least making the playoffs.

A little more than a year after he was traded back to the Avalanche from the Blue Jackets, Columbus is in the thick of a fight for its first postseason berth and Colorado is in last place in the Western Conference, destined to be done playing when the regular season ends April 12.

Oops.
