As far as I can tell it's a standard pinstripe suit coat. But it's hard because of the weird color effect going on in the entire image.

That's the part I don't like. The pinstripes on suit coats.

You are certainly correct there. However, even with the weird effects its not even in the same zip code as Cherry.

Remember when some were ticked that Nash allegedly didn't waive his no-trade clause for a deal headlined by this kid?

Dodged a serious bullet there (and still got one of the potential players in the deal at a much lower cost). We missed out on the next Lindros. Brett Lindros, that is.

Yea no kidding. Zibanejad is by far not a bust (yet) but Im extremely cautious when it comes to someone who is injury prone. Wish the kid the best hopefully he gets healthy.

It's an old article, but man oh man is it awful.

Is Jack Johnson the Tim Tebow of the NHL?

Maybe but with three concussions in one year he might be wise to think about hanging up his skates. He's got enough to live on and nothing is worth brain damage.

I was admittedly never a big fan of Juice but after reading this I have to say I feel bad for the guy.

I liked Juice.

Everyone knew what kind of player he was, and if you didn't expect any more than what was advertised then he would not drive you crazy. When he was good, he was very good.

The other thing that I liked about Juice was that when he coughed up the puck, he almost always was able to get it back, or at least break up any potential scoring chance off of his turnover.

From Dark Blue Jacket:

Gallos provides this quote:

"...from Battle of California (a blog on SBNation), that looked at the last 48 games of last year, a relevant number given the season we are looking at. In that time period, the CBJ finished 13th in the West, still not a playoff team, but not last. This is probably a little bit more realistic for us. There are still of lot of unfinished pieces."

The actual record was 20-25-3, with a 5-1 sprint to the finish. Certainly, this team and situation is much changed; but I thought it provided a little different look at the past season, rather than comparing to the first 48 games or the entire past season. Since I have seen only one other blogger (on HockeyBuzz) place the CBJ anywhere but last, I found it interesting that there might actually be some numbers somewhere in the statistical universe that might support such madness!

From The Union Blue,

As always, the Coach provides some interesting things on which to ponder. Today, he's posted his goal predictions for this year's CBJ:

http://www.theunionblue.com/2013/01/.../#comment-3500

I know nothing of statistical analysis and don't understand the basis for his projections (and he doesn't reveal his underlying numbers, anyway), but I find them interesting, nontheless. I was shocked by how wide his projected range for Johan is (7-32!), but I do like his final conclusion - this team might score more than it gives up. Maybe, maybe not, but I'm willing to at least consider the possibility!

From TSN:

"When the NHL season gets underway, teams will likely have a shorter-than-normal evaluation period to decide whether to keep their underage prospects or send them back to their junior teams.

According to TSN Hockey Insider Bob McKenzie, the league is expected to adopt a six-game rule for the lockout-shortened season. At that point, teams could send the player back to junior without using up the first year of their entry level contract.

Next season, the league would revert back to the usual 10 games."

Obviously, this impacts the discussion regarding Boone Jenner.

Indeed. Baring injuries, I'm just not sure there are enough spots for Jenner to make the club unless he just comes in and explodes onto the scene.

Having said that, I saw him a bit last year during camp and I only be mildly surprised to see him do just that.

@TSNBobMcKenzie: I don't go in pools/fantasy drafts but if I did I'd want CBJ's Cam Atkinson on my team. 7G in 27GP in NHL. 49G in 89GP in AHL. #notarookie

You've seen someone predict the Jackets as not-last? Can I see this link? Everywhere I've looked, the attitude has been so overbearingly self-assured that I swear we could go 5-0-0 the next week and still be 30th in every Power Rankings compilation.

Meanwhile, I've already developed this year's test for whether or not someone I'm talking to knows what they're talking about w/r/t the CBJ: how they answer the question "Who is Cam Atkinson?" Seriously, it's like he doesn't exist. It's creepy.

"His name was Cam Atkinson."

That finish projects out to 74 points (with benefit of generous rounding) over a full season. Would have tied with Edmonton for the lowest total in the league. And we know how that turned out.

I'm in Disney World right now. Yesterday I wore a T with the Jackets logo on it. A Philly fan saw it and said, " you're a Jackets fan?, you and a couple others"! Another guy saw it and said , " sorry about yesterday". I looked at him with that puzzled look and he said " your Texans will be back next year". He thought the CBJ logo with the flag was a Texans logo.

Talk about no respect, most people never heard of us and those that do think we are doomed for extinction! I guess 11 years of losing will do that for you.

Normally, a non-executive CBJ employee leaving their job is not very noteworthy, but I feel this one is different. Ryan Holtmann, former manager of communications, has left the Blue Jackets for a different job. He was very accessible and always went out of his way to respond to inquiries about specific player stats and many other tidbits of info that fans requested. This fan appreciated that immensely.
Best of luck to Ryan in his future endeavors.

The bold part explained it all.

I wear my Jackets hat when I travel and I seem to run into at least one person that wants to talk hockey. I have also notice that people always ask why we have a cannon logo and they seem interested in hearing the story of the teams name.

Other then his Notre Dame and St Louis Cardinals tweets I think he did do a great job.

I believe it was Ian Esplan, the 'Nucks blogger on HockeyBuzz, who had us at 13, or thereabouts. Unfortunately, I'm not able to link it because I'm not sure how to access their archives and it was a week or more ago. Sorry, Viq.
