Let's hope that the jackets don't play down to the competition like they have so many times in the past. Another effort like Sunday's and you can put 2 in the point total.
Down to the competition? Are we sure there is such a thing? I've read repeatedly on these forums that this CBJ team sucks.

If Ryan Murray was treated like Adam Larsson is being treated, our board would have a collective brain aneurysm.
You might want a select a different outcome since aneurysm's tend to be fatal and there wasn't a marked decline in posters after the last few incidents with other (ex) Jackets players.
I've said before; one of the biggest problems with the Internet is that if you virtual cliff jump your virtual avatar doesn't stay dead. They still let your drama queen self continue to post.
This game should bore most of you to death, but I'll probably enjoy the hell out of it - assuming we don't come and and just plain suck. I'm not even going to predict what we do tonight and Schneider could easily shut us out. We'll get a lot of chances, but we're haven't figured out how to finish those very well.
Don't wanna get in a run n gun type game versus these guys. While not deep on "elite" talent they have quite a few guys who are very good with the puck if given time. However, on paper I see them as a pretty slow team. If we use our speed and force the puck carrier and stay off the PK I THINK we should be fine. Not a fan of Schneider either, think he's overrated.
Think the Larsson situation is pretty interesting. I haven't seen him play much (especially recently) but when I have he hasn't looked bad at all. Think he would be a good fit with us, as he's focused on being more defensive. Nikitin, Savard or even Erixon for him would be something I'd look into if I we're JK. Plus or minus a 3rd rounder or something.
Probably going to be decided 5-on-5. Special teams should cancel each other out, as Devils are good on the kill vs Jackets middling-to-decent power play and Devils are horrible on the PP despite the Jackets' woes on the PK.
