Preds - 3
BJs - 2

We get a PP goal from Ellis. Erat and Hornqvist get the others.
McGrattan and Boll drop the gloves.
Good crowd.
Let's do this.

Can't wait! Coming up from the Atlanta area with my husband and a friend. Then coming back for the Monday game. I'm off work Monday and have a "doctor's appointment" Tuesday so I won't be in to work until around 10. Hookie for hockey!

CBJ Line-up update:

Forwards:
Umberger - Brassard - Atkinson (Atkinson didn't skate yesterday but is expected to play)
Dubinski - Anisimov - Dorsett
Prospal - Johansen - Foligno
3 of: Boll, Letestu, MacKenzie, Gilles, Calvert

Johnson - Wisniewski
Tyutin - Nikitin
Aucoin - Moore
(Savard)

Thought is Bobrovski more likely than Mason. Richards is planning on telling the goalie on Friday who is going to start.

The goal this season is for the Blue Jackets to be one of the harder clubs in the NHL to play against. They want to be a high-energy, hard-forechecking club that can wear you down but (sic) rolling four lines.

Looking forward to finally seeing NHL hockey again.

Going to be honest, if Columbus wasn't called the Blue Jackets, and the flags weren't behind each soldier, I'd have no idea which side was which color. And I've lived in the south for most of my life.

For whoever is going to do the "official" typical first post, the following might be very helpful.

Kind of cool too.

If anyone remembers the "Poile Troll" segment I put in some GDT's last year, I am happy to announce that it will be coming back, starting Saturday! This year it will be called..."The Predatrolls"!

Mason lost 10-15lbs and is supposedly looking sharper, but has anyone been paying attention to Bobrovsky? He went 18-3-2 with a 1.94 goals-against average and .932 save percentage in the KHL. Yes, lol@the KHL but those are some scary numbers.

90% of my focus in this game will be on the young guys: Smith, Wilson, Mueller (if he's in the line-up), and Josi / Ellis most of all. I'm guessing Trotz will carry 7 D with Blum tagging along, but not sure.

Our schedule is going to be a damn nightmare this year. The Central is only slightly less absurd than it was last year. I see a battle between CHI and STL for the division lead. CHI might pull it off if they turn around their special teams; think they were like 26th on both PP and PK last year. PK is one thing, but there is no way they stay 20+ with their absurd PP resources.
If you LOL at the KHL look at Rinne's numbers...

The further away you want to park, the less you will pay. I normally park off 8th avenue by the Cokesbury store. $5 and not too bad of a walk to the back door.

Sorry, tone is lost on the internet. I was preempting other people saying "It's the KHL, it doesn't matter." I don't think the KHL is a joke.

The Library garage at 6th and Commerce is $4 for events at the Bridge. It will fill up by about 6 probably.

I think Rich Clune will surprise us with some early offense this season.

I expect a low scoring game. Preds 2-1
Umm their best player just went to the New York Rangers over the offseason.

Statements like this were, at first, annoying me. Nowadays, they just make me smile.

Statistically, they GAINED goals with the additions of Foligno, Dubinsky, and Anisimov, While ALSO improving the defense. Howson made Predator moves to improve the Jackets. After the JJ trade the CBJ were a .500 team 11-11 With the trades above they project to 214-214 GF GA. Without rookie goal adjustments for Atkinson and Johansson.


They could be in a BIG position this year if they want to dive in and win in a half season. (3 1sts as well.)

If Ryan Murray and Ryan Johansen take big steps forward, they can be competitive this year. Don't see them in the playoffs, but they won't be as miserable as last year.

Um. You may have a problem here.

(also, suggesting our blueline would be dependent on Murray as Lord And Savior to be effective is, well, a statement that reflects poorly on one's understanding of the CBJ's present state. )


I have a simple two-question test for anyone who wants to make proclamations about how the CBJ will do. They are as follows:
1) Who is Cam Atkinson? (Test of basic roster knowledge.)
2) What position does John Davidson hold with the Blue Jackets? (Test of basic fact-checking and research.)

You'd be surprised how many people screw these up.
