Blue Jackets system flush with NCAA prospects

The Columbus Blue Jackets don't exactly have any blue-chip prospects currently playing NCAA hockey, but they've got a number of players who could potentially contribute to an NHL lineup in the near future.

I hope those college kids finish out their degree's then spend a full year in the AHL before getting a shot in the NHL.. There might be a rare exception.

It's time to sign Will Weber. Please correct me if I'm wrong but he becomes a UFA 7/1.

"Blue Jackets system FLUSH" ???? withe prospects?

How is this "news" ?


No, seriously. I think we've been in the turlet in part because we
A) have relied on or drafted too many turds.
B) have a toilet instead of a (good) system.

Yeah, he'll be signed. Nothing to worry about.

I'm kind of shocked Vogelhuber was even signed to an ATO with Springfield, though.

Or finds a tailor who likes him instead of making suits out of picnic tablecloths.

I pay attention to his answers about as much as I do JR. Which is to say I find my 8 year old nieces answers on solutions for world peace far more compelling and interesting. Actually her discussions on Barbie wardrobes is just riveting in comparison.

Here's what the blog United States of Hockey says about our two new NCAA players:

Columbus Blue Jackets

Shawn Hunwick^ — Michigan — The senior goaltender may have gotten a contract based on necessity, as Steve Mason went down with injury, requiring the Jackets to call upon Hunwick as an emergency back up. He’ll stay with the club for the remainder of the season though and might get a chance to see some game action. This is one of the most incredible stories in hockey. Even if Hunwick doesn’t stick (he very well could), he’ll go down as one of the unlikeliest players to reach the NHL.

Sean Collins# — Cornell — Collins just wrapped up a really strong career for the Big Red. A seventh round pick by the Jackets in 2008, Collins had his best season to date. He was a big part of Cornell’s run to the national tournament and first-round upset of Michigan. Collins posted a career-best 13 goals and 26 assists in his senior campaign, a significant uptick in production from the previous year. Collins also has great size at 6-foot-3 and can play a two-way game. Cornell always develops good, gritty forwards that can push the pace and play the body. Collins is one of those guys.

Thanks Pete. Pretty interesting stuff and Hunwick is an amazing story. I was wondering if it was going to come to something like this as we kept bringing York up.

Can you imagine the fun she could have with "Barbie Dates Old Crazy Dude," with a Cherry doll and wardrobe? Maybe not, though, seeing it in print is kind of creepy.

Some of the stuff on the shelves in the Barbie isle may not go quite that far, but it gets a little creepy none the less.

I think "flush" is a fitting adjective.

Here's another interesting link to HF analysis of a team's overall prospect depth. Don't know if I believe it but one can always hope
