Jackets Preview

Here is Ari's Columbus preview:

The 2008-2009 season was the Columbus Blue Jackets’ most successful campaign. The Jackets finished seventh in the conference, making the playoffs for the first time in team history. Even though they were quickly disposed of by the Detroit Red Wings in the first round of the playoffs, the Blue Jackets opened a lot of eyes last year and took a big step towards gaining respectability as a franchise. The future looks bright for the Jackets, as goaltender Steve Mason won the Calder Trophy and was nominated for the Vezina, and youngsters Derick Brassard and Jakub Voracek had excellent rookie seasons.
For a look at his complete Jackets preview, click here.

Anything missing? Agree or disagree? Feel free to comment (on here or IC).

Also, Illegalcurve radio recently had Aaron Portzline of Puck-Rakers where he discussed all things Blue Jackets. (interview goes from 7:40-8:00 pm).

I saw that too and chuckled:

The Columbus Blue Jackets were the 10th highest scoring team in the Eastern Conference, averaging 2.76 goals/game.

He's got quite a few factual errors (Nash is signed through 17-18, I believe; Brassard was an '06 draft pick), but the tone and overall analysis is about right.
