I think a lot of us fear that when the real games start we won't be able to simply "flick the switch" and be good again just like that. This kind of play in a week will be certain death, and embarrassing at that

No concern about, at best, a 1-6 close to the season, eh? I'm sure the Stanley Cup has a rich history of teams winning it after such illustrious regular season finishes.

Give me a break

JJ has become the one guy I never worry about anymore. Really hope we dont lose him in the expansion draft. Matured so much in his time here

Agree with you, it was posted a few days back, quite a few teams went on to win the cup. People get so emotional of the now , and make blanket statements . Team clinched , there was obvious letdown after Washington loss, and injuries piled up. It's not like the team forgot how to play hockey.

Agree. He has been strong when paired with Savard and give us a highly dependable second pair. I want to keep him!.....And while it's not a reason to keep him, I just think of Jack as a Blue Jacket and a guy who belongs here.

Guys I don't worry about: JJ, Savard, Harrington. Carlsson looks like he might join that list someday.

12 shots on goal - that's an ok period. But it sucks when that's the count for two periods.

They're playing in the wrong end.

At least they're scoring when they're in the offensive zone, that was my biggest concern before the Winnipeg game.

Did the broadcast show his hit near the bench? JJ is good for one or two of those a game.

Lol, way to cherry pick . 2012-2013

Hottest team: Washington finished the regular season 8-1-1 but it didn’t matter as the team was bounced in the first round.
Coldest team: Boston went 3-5-2 to close the season and made it all the way to the Cup Final, falling is six games.

2014-15

Hottest: Ottawa went 6-2-2 to close the season but fell in the first round.
Coldest: Chicago finished the season having lost four straight, but went on to win the Stanley Cup anyway.

So in the past five years, two teams that entered the playoffs as the “coldest team” made it all the way to the Stanley Cup Finals

Lol.

The good news is, the Jackets haven't finished 1-6, yet. So you're calling that good news?

I bet Sonny Milano would have had a hat trick in this game.
