CBJ are only team with under 200 power play opportunities, at just 192. We apparently always face teams who are on their best behavior against us.

Get bent, NHL.

Sure is rusty PP. That 7 minutes vs Toronto was about the most painful to watch 7 minutes they've played all season.

CBJ goalies are white hot right now - we've all seen Bob's crazy stats for this month, but I just saw Portzline's tweet about Anton Forsberg: AHL player of the week, went 3-0 with a .67 GAA and .982 save percentage.

Absolutely bizarre how he's elite at the AHL level but can't manage a backup job at the NHL level. If that turns out to be his career going forward, it'll be the first time I've seen that with a goalie.

Jeremy Smith? I think injuries threw him off but he was a pretty beastly AHL goalie and now just finally getting NHL games and not doing great but to be fair its with Colorado. I was excited when Columbus signed him but it didnt last long

He's still young, may need some more time to season.
Or, he could be one of those players that just can't make that jump to the NHL.

They're 7-2-1 in their last 10 with 7 games left, which means they'll have to go 0-7 for Lambert's baseless prediction that they would "collapse around game 65 and lose 10 of their last 17".

He moved the goal posts. Now he'll be right if the Jackets don't get out of the first round and he'll say, "See! I told you they couldn't win a playoff series" (despite that series probably being against the #3 team in the league and the defending SC champs).

Just read a new hate article from him claiming Torts isn't a legit Jack Adams candidate because of Bob but Bruce Boudreau was until Dubnyk's wheels fell off.

He's just all over the place. For awhile, the winning was #unsustainable because he viewed the roster as bad based on previous history. So he had this preconceived notion the Jackets were a mediocre team and could not possibly turn things around this much.

Now...he likes the roster more than the Maple Leafs, so therefore Babcock should win because he has gotten more out of his young roster (ignores CBJ basically have the same average age).

Jackets are still the youngest team in the NHL. But according to some it doesn't matter because the leafs have 7 Rookies on their roster

Don't know when that was last updated.

I don't know why any of you give Lambert attention (or any of the other hooligans at Yahoo for that matter). They're all horribly biased, unprofessional, and quite unfit for a real NHL reporting/scouting/journalism gig.

I couldn't care less about what an internet troll who most likely hasn't watched a single full CBJ game has to say about my team, and neither should you.

I'm not sure why anyone pays any attention to that crew. They just write what they do to get a rise out of people to keep them clicking and generating ad revenues.

The best way to deal with people like them is not disagreement or arguing or hate. It's apathy.

We have no reason to read their stuff. Their opinion has no importance at all.

Nor should we, IMO, allow him/them anywhere near our playoff avatars.
