2016-17 CBJ "Buy/Sell"

No, not a ticket thread, that's still here: http://hfboards.hockeysfuture.com/sh....php?t=2001091



This is our annual "late summer and there's nothing to talk about so let's play a game" thread.

Make a statement/prediction regarding the Blue Jackets upcoming season. Can be a stat/number thing, or more general. Next poster either buys (thinks it will happen) or sells (thinks it won't), explanations optional but welcome, then makes a statement/prediction of their own.


To begin: David Savard will lead all CBJ defensemen in goal scoring in 16-17

Sell. I think he is going to have a pretty good year, but I don't think he will lead our defensemen in goal scoring.


Oliver Bjorkstrand will win the Calder Trophy in 16-17.

Sell - OB usually takes time to adjust to a new league. That doesn't bode well of awards.

Bobrovsky will start 60 games and have a GAA greater than .920

Wennberg will get 50 assists.

My opening buy/sell last year was "Bob will start 65 games". Fro and Spin both sold.

Sell. I think it's possible, but seriously unlikely.

Gagner will spend time in the AHL this season.

Buy. He saw AHL time last season. If he doesn't see AHL time, it doesn't bode well for the CBJ.

Jackets start the season's first 12 games with 12 points or more.

Sell. The Jackets schedule is front-loaded against the West and quite a few playoff teams. Plus, they haven't had 12 points in their first 12 games since 2010 (16 points at 8-4).

Seth Jones will finish in the top 5 Norris voting.

Sell. He'll have a good year but not quite that good.

Werenski scores 10 or more goals.

Sell, he will have growing pains and scoring ten goals this year will be difficult

The Jackets will average 15,500 in attendance this season at NWA

Sell. They've only averaged more than that once in the past 5 seasons.


Nick Foligno will have 40 or more points this season.

Buy, he almost did it last year with a concussion and terrible luck with team shooting percentage.

The Jackets have the best 4th line they've had since DMac.

Buy. It would be hard not to.

Buy/Sell: Jackets start with 14 pts or less in first 14 games.

Personally I'd be happy with 14 because it can be a lot worse looking at the schedule.

Buy. That schedule is just brutal.

Buy/Sell: Jenner produces at a similar rate as last year.

Sell. At least on the goals produced. Don't think that he'll hit 30, but he'll be productive.

Buy/Sell: Jackets miss playoffs

Hard one. Is he productive? If so, buy. If he plays (plays, not scores) like he did last season, sell.

The first Fire Torts thread appears on the boards in November.

Sell. If he's having an exceptional year and is wanted by others, the CBJ will probably be challenging for a playoff berth and will want to keep him. Conversely, if he's not playing well, no one will want him.

Buy/Sell: Dubinsky will score 50 or more points.

If he's playing the majority of his minutes with Atkinson, buy.

Buy/Sell: Alexander Wennberg scores more than 15 goals this season

Buy/Sell: Milano has a breakout season with the Monsters
