Top 10 Blue Jackets Moments of 2006-07

Jackets.com is counting down the top 10 Jackets moments of 2006 - 2007.

#10 - Modin notching his 200th goal.
http://www.bluejackets.com/news/feat...ts/3720.0.html

Since there isn't much else to talk about around here I figured lets take our best guesses at the remaining 9.

#9 - Jackets record first ever wins at Dallas and at Colorado.
#8 - Rick Nash scores 4 points in NHL All-Star game.
#7 - Jackets rally from 3 goals down in the 3rd to beat the Ducks at Anaheim in arguably the best comeback in franchise history (although I would still argue the win against Detroit two years ago was better).
#6 - Fredrick Norrena scores back to back shoutouts against Edmonton and Colorado.
#5 - Geoff Platt / Joakim Lindstrom / Joe Motzko / OK Tollefsen record first NHL goals.
#4 - Fredrick Norrena first Jacket goalie to finish with a W/L record above .500
#3 - Jackets set road win record.
#2 - Rick Nash nets 100th goal.
#1 - Ken Hitchcock hired as head coach.

Man...its a reach to find 10 top moments this season.

Yeah - Modin's 200th and 400th goals and points were really great - Rimmer and Gare didn't even know it was a milestone in the video clips

Don't know that it warrants being on your official list there TS, but for me personally, OKT's hit so gloriously represented in Goaliemon's Avi was without a doubt one of my Top 10 CBJ Moments of the season. One of those few glimpses of "what this team can be" that just lifts my spirits everytime I think about it. It lives there with Klesla's hit the previous season.

The site has number nine posted and it isn't on your list Shelf

9) Vyborny ties and wins game in overtime against L.A.

One of the original Blue Jackets and one of their most reliable players, David Vyborny collected a total of 64 points this year. Three of them - on two goals and an assist - came March 7 in a memorable come-from-behind overtime win at home against the Kings. With the Jackets trailing 2-1, Vyborny scored his first with 5:02 remaining in regulation to knot the score and sent the game to overtime. A shootout seemed inevitable until Vyborny's skillful wrist shot sailed past the goaltender, sounded the horn and sealed the Columbus victory.

I liked Nash scoring with 23 seconds left and Vyborny winning it in OT against the Blues.

The Jackets scoring as many SHGs in one game as the Rangers had let in the entire season before that game.

I'll add Manny winning an 11 man deep shootout against Calgary. You know, back early enough in the season when we still had hope.

Handyy coming to Columbus, the festivities and welcome that surrounded his visit and the CBJ winning that Phoenix game in dominating style.

Agreed. I was there for that game, and that was one hell of a night.

I actually spoke to John Carlisle today, he's a Capital student that put this list together. He does most of the internet articles for the Blue Jackets. I didn't ask him what the rest of the list was...

Or did I...?

I know you're not that important Handyy but I based my post on the following statement taken directly from the article on the CBJ website:

......we count down the top ten moments of the year, based on their significance and heart-stopping excitement.

Since there were few moments of heart-stopping excitement, I went for a top moment of significance. I believe that seeing what the organization did around your visit was a significant moment that showed class and sportsmanship above and beyond any individual moment that happened on the ice this year.

I don't really see that type of thing from the organisation happening in example New York or Toronto. It is really important, even more so for an expansion team with limited on-ice success. It's not important to make a fan out of me since I can spend money into Jackets very low amounts, but it shows that Mclean & co respects the fans and doesn't think only the money.

I bet there are lots of fans who are still supporting Jackets mostly because of how the organisation treats them, with respect. You can't make lifetime fans out of on-ice performance because every team has bad years. But make them enjoy the whole package and they will come again. Well, even I'm coming again and I have a little much more miles to travel than a fan living in Columbus! And I don't care do they win or lose, I will cheers for Jackets anyways (Obviously I hope them to win ).

So far MacLean being fired is the best thing that has happened in 06-07.

Come on, what's really better? The hiring of Hitchcock or the firing of GMDM? I really believe that without the hiring of Hitchcock we probably wouldn't be breathing these big sighs 'o relief about GMDM's firing.

I liked Vybes winning in OT versus Boston too.

Hell Vyborny's pick pocket of Lidstrom and goal was sweet, as was his take away from Turco. Just give me a Vyborny highlight reel.

Every list should contain Svitov's pummeling of Duncan Keith accompanied by the audio from the Chicago broadcast.

True. Jackets with an experienced coach going into next year is far more better news than the change of GM. I don't really see the difference in results for this season if GM would been changed for this season because Gallant was a coach anyways.

I view the firing as the low point in the season.
An unfortunate conclusion to a sad journey.
