There is no bigger crowd then CBC on a Saturday night. Teams usually amp it up when they play in front of all of Canada.

Why the hell did Nash not shoot with like, 30 seconds left? I'm not sure who he passed to but that shot was terribly weak and ended up hitting a Canuck..

Rule number 1, do not use logic when trying to analyze the Blue Jackets.

You'll catch on soon enough

Well, I never want to listen those announcers again.

I liked all three goals, good plays we should see more of in the future.

We Canucks fans dont either. The Play by Play guy is the #2 guy for CBC's Hockey Night in Canada broacast. This is not a Canucks broadcast, but is a national game across Canada, 2nd half of the Sat Night doubleheader. Watch next week on HNIC and he will be on again infurating viewers across teh country

Mark Lee is horrible. Its like the equivalent of having the guy on SNF and this guy is #2 to Al Michaels

I just want to say Mark Lee is NOT our announcer. He's a national announcer from Alberta and typically does play by play for Flames or Oilers games.

But he is terrible and hating him is okay. We can do it together! Bro hugs!

Continue to like the way Cam and Vinny are playing together.

What can you say about the night JJ and Wiz had? We actually have two NHL defense-men on this team for the first time in how long? Eleven years?

Mason didn't embarrass himself in this game.

We have the second pick in the draft locked up at this point, I would hazard to guess. You just know that we have to finish last, so that when we lose the lottery we get the second pick.

As part of our offseason "reshaping", I do hope that "shaping RJ into the jersey of another team is included. For all the flak that Vermette took, at least he tried every nite. A lot more than can be said of the fat old man version of RJ.

I didn't watch much of the game but in reading the recap it said that the Jackets blocked 34 shots-which is really good except that Vancouver had 38 more on goal! So that means they attempted 72 shots? I am amazed the jackets scored 3-sounds like they were in their own end all night.

Agree on Umbie.

Must be nice to say "those aren't our real announcers"

Just reviewing the GDT. So you really believe that both Arniel and Richards play that slug to please Nash? Really? Or is this just your usual chain-yanking?

Vancouver announcers said a lot of good words about J.Johnson and a lot of bad about A.Johnson. They got it. What Aaron was doing 5 feet behind Booth when he scored a goal is unexplained.
Moore and Nikitin on the Edler's goal were weird. 2 rookies who can't communicate with each other is a call for troubles. Kids in the pee-wee league don't make such mistakes. Communication should't be a problem next year... I hope...
Overall Nikitin had a decent game.

Seriously? How bad he played? For 1 bad play I saw 10 decent ones. He was good under the pressure, stopped 1 on 1 a couple times, was making right decisions every time he had the puck, PP looked good with him on the point... Dare to explain what did you mean? The bad play on Edler's goal? Wiz is out of position quiet often as well.

I am very pleased with what Nikitin has show, this year, but it seems imperative that he work on his English during the off-season and dedicate himself to improving his communication with all his defensive partners. Tyutin may be his best pairing, but it's inevitable that he will be on the ice with other non-Russian speakers due to the flow of the game and he has to be more comfortable with them. Learning the language isn't that big a deal, even AJ can speak English (!), but communicating on the ice is something that even National teams that all speak the same tongue often fail at. I certainly want Niki back, next year, and I hope communication among all the blueliners is very much improved!

I know they had 38 shots on goal BUT this article said :

"You can’t say we didn’t play hard,” Blue Jackets defenseman James Wisniewski said. No. No you can’t. The Blue Jackets were credited with 34 blocked shots. They had 27 through two periods. Aaron Johnson had eight of them.

So 38 on goal plus 34 blocks =72 shot attempts (not counting the ones that got through but went wide) Seems awfully high. Does anyone who actually reads a post know if this is right?

I thought Mason looked pretty good, just bad luck on the 4th goal going off a skate and right to Sedin. Jack Johnson and Wisniewski are both beasts, never would have thought they would play that well together.

Mason will be a pretty capable backup until his contract is over. Let's hope we actually get a #1 this offseason.

Communication isn't a big problem when he plays with Wiz or JJ on the PK. I mean let him play with a decent partner and he will be good. That Edler goal happened when Moore just jumped on the ice. Beloved Johnny Moore had grand total of 3 seconds on penalty kill all night and look what happened. He played only 9 minutes total for a reason.
Recently I found Nikitin's interview and he admitted that he has language problems and that playing with Tyutin is much easier for him. At least he understands that. Also anyone needs time to adjust to a new partner. I recall that JJ-Wiz pair was brutal defensively for their first couple games together and both of them speak English.
Right now the Jackets have only 3 healthy NHL d-men and Nikitin comes on the short side in terms of defensive partner selection.

Perhaps the Vancouver stats guy is as generous with shots/blocks as the Columbus stats guy is with hits.

Moore is 21 years old, in his third year since his draft and first with regular NHL time. He's developed well and you can see in his game that he projects to be prety damn good if he contiinues to progress.

Nikitin has been a pleasant find. He hasn't disappointed at all and I read no complaints with his game besides the occassional pointing out of a mistake - the kind which gets pointed out regardless of the player. He's 25 years old, in his second season in North America and his game is rounding into form. The only big-picture concern I'm seeing regards communication, something you say he's acknowledged. So what's the problem?

In the four game losing streak which has followed the 4-1 streak, the Jackets "First Line" has pulled a Houdini.

The Captain has 0 points in this stretch. In fact the Captain has 0 points in his last 6 games. It gets worse. If one throws out his 3 point effort in one game since the trade deadline passed, Nash has ONE point in 8 of the 9 games.

Brassard 0 points in last four. 6 points in the 9 games since the deadline passed. Not that bad.

Umberger 0 points in last four. 3 points in the 9 games since the deadline.

$15 million this year for this trio. 24% of all salaries. Good Grief
