The Blue Jackets themselves looked better. Much more solid on the blue line. Much better puck control. They didn't make as many of the mistakes that we usually feast on. We can't depend on them sucking to pick up a given W this season.
That last sentence says it all, all teams will get that message eventually!
latest in the calendar year the jackets have lead the nhl.

No question who played better last night. I sit in the attack end twice zone, for two periods I didn't see much action. Much better team effort by your team. Much better at puck control, we were left simply counter attacking. If things keep going this way, maybe you did win the Nash trade. Good luck.
Well, that was fun!
I chose Tyutin in the "first goal" poll and thought I had it... darned Foligno. Tyuts and Nikitin are a force to be reckoned with. Wiz and Jack looked more like plain old chaos, not so "controlled Chaos". And Johnny Moo-er was solid.
Let's hope Richards puts Letestu in for either Boll or Calvert. Preferably sit Calvert. Calvert and Atkinson are redundant in the "waterbug" category and Cam has a HUGE advantage in the skill area.
I like the game our team. Everybody played hard. I am afraid, the first line except Atkinson was ... only sleeping or what I dont know but not too good. I like the energy other lines, Anisimov looks like ideal center for us. Together with Dubinsky are very good. I dont knowwhrther Dorsett is right for them. The third line has big potential IMHO . But my heroes were Boll and Dorsett, Bolls bodychecs were excelent.
What was goood.... the defense. D-men played good before Bobrovsky, clean a place before the net... respective better than in the last season. Miss creativity in the atack but I cant wait it in this season. IMHO ideal roster in the defense too, maybe Erixon could change Aucoin later... we will see. And what is imortant.... Preds didnt have too much ideal chances before Bob. Good, very good. Tyutin and Nikitin together... excelent. I like Moores defense too.
IMO ideal roster and I dont see any reason to change somebody for Letestu. Boll is great in his role. Similar Calvert.
