And where is written Alex won`t be a scoring dynamo?

We need still one good center.

True, but he has yet to get close to a goal in a shootout this year. Though he is a drastic improvement at center from most of what the Jackets have. He would be a solid center for just about every team (including Tampa).

Is he really a great faceoff guy? I thought he mostly played the wing. He doesn't seem like that great of player but he can't be worse than Mike York. Also he's younger (only 25) and maybe a new change of scenery will reverse what the change of scenery to Tampa seemed to do?

Just to show you how much the NHL thinks of Columbus, There is no mention of Brassard's injury on NHL.Com even though he is the top rookie scorer at the moment.

In case you missed it, not good news:

Quote:
Center Derick Brassard suffered a dislocated right shoulder in Thursday's 6-5 shootout loss in Dallas, The Dispatch has confirmed.

Brassard has already had X-rays. He'll return with the Blue Jackets after Saturday's game in Phoenix and will have an MRI on Sunday.

A dislocation is worse than a separation. It's possible Brassard could need surgery. If so, he could miss months rather than weeks. Depending on the severity of the injury, a dislocated shoulder can be treated with rehab (weeks) or surgery (months).

This is not good for Brass. He already had both shoulders operated on prior to being drafted. He broke his jaw running into a teammate last year. I love the kid, but he's a few injuries away from being Glassard. Ok, that was a ****** pun, but the point being he needs to hit the weights big time now.

Lady Luck seems a lot less interested in the Jackets than Murphy.

Still, Brassard will learn from this. I love his spirit but he's too important to this team to be a fighter. This was a rookie mistake, and one he won't soon forget.

Grabbing Jokinen might work out for us in the short term, but I don't see how any desperation moves can help us in the long run. The truth is we have to build the team the hard way, and frankly I think we're making progress even if it often doesn't look so clear.

And frankly, after last night $@$%! the NHL review committee.

That is very bad news. Shoulders are very tricky thing and one thing is for sure, once you dislocate your shoulder it never regains it's full form. If he has to go through another surgery... It looks very bad for him...

What a ******* shame!

Holy crap, Jussi Jokinen is available? The one that was unstoppable in the shootout a few yrs ago? Are we horrible enough to get him before anyone else does?

Probably not. Just our luck.

I honestly don't see how we can not claim Jokinen at this point. He's never had less than 40 points in an NHL season.

I don't really expect it to happen, but there's absolutely no reason we shouldn't be all over it. What, exactly, do we have to lose?

Schremp is no more than an AHL'er. Hasn't made it with the Oilers in 4 years in the organization

My fantasy team thinks he's a pretty good faceoff guy.

Jussi Jokinen is the name of the moment, but come on. This team needs far more than a third liner from Tampa. Picking him up off waivers just means that we then can't get a real center. Why bother? Is he better than York, maybe. But we need a lot more help than Jokinen. Now (before midnight) is the time to make a move with either Ottawa or NY to get Spezza, Vermette, or Dubinsky.

Jokinen would end up being a band aid that would prevent us from getting real help.

Dubinsky isn't available. Vermette or Spezza on the other hand might be able to be nabbed.

And Jokinen wouldn't prevent us from anything. He'd only be making $1 million and we could easily waive him again if needed.

He's not been so terrible that he is being waived. Think about it.

Yep. So he could be had for cheap. A change of scenery could do wonders, he definitely has talent.
