I've heard us mentioned on Versus and HNIC. Started with Mason and has picked up steam. We are now considered a valid topic.

My wife was so angry, because she was wearing her Leclaire sweater and when we went through security, they went over us pretty well, including making us lift up our CBJ sweaters. She wanted to know how someone got an octopus in when she felt like she went through a strip search. After that, it's rare that she will wear a Jackets jersey.

Back on topic, I was shocked and pleased when they mentioned the Jackets as one of the league's best teams down the stretch.

It's hard to argue with a 14-5-1 record over our last 20, with half of the wins against Detroit, Boston, San Jose, Pittsburgh, and Chicago.

Today's Moment Of Slight Creepiness



Well, I was searching around for clips of old games so I could see a little more of FoxTrax (specifically, why it was considered such a bad thing - I think of it as the NHL TV coverage equivalent of showing scrimmage and first down lines on a football field, but, hey, I'm a n00b, what do I know ). In the process, I came across this - while it wasn't what I was looking for, I still found it of interest. Mostly because I instantly recognized Jeff Rimer's voice and Doug MacLean's face behind the bench.

It's almost kinda creepy.

BTW, Melrose and Buccigross were giving mad props to the CBJ on Sportscenter after the OT win Wednesday night. Honestly, I don't remember the last time they showed our highlights on there.

It's been awhile. Glad to see us finally getting some props. I can honestly say that it is deserved and I love this team. Everything about it, the work ethic, the winning, the personalities, ect. It's been a magical season so far and I can't wait for us to be playing PLAYOFF HOCKEY!

The color guy in that clip sounds like the one that does the Caps games now.

Jeff Marek gives us a lot of attention on Hockey Night in Canada Radio which is carried daily on Sirius. Hitch was on today but I missed it. Marek is a huge Torres fan and brings him up all the time (usually says Torres is best when he reacts and doesn't think too much on the ice). Marek and Hrudey have talked a lot about Steve Mason as well and openly discussed him as potential rookie of the year and as a Vezina candidate.

It looks more and more like the Flames will be facing the BJ's in the first round. That sucks. Since calling up Steve Mason on Nov. 5, they've gone 34-22-4. That's about a 46 win season over a full year. Since adding Antoine Vermette at the trade deadline they've lost just twice. This is not a team I want to face right off the bat.
Also read the comments, they're pretty interesting as well.

Awesome to be feared.

And although technically, we had Vermette for the Nashville game, we really have only lost 1 game with him in the lineup.

And one comment referred to Vegas odds on CBJ in SC Final.....I don't know about now, but I do know that the CBJ were 75-1 odds to win the Cup in September. I'm sure they're still long odds, but I've got my $10 betting slip in a safe spot

Rimer and MacLean go back a long way and MacLean brought Rimer to Columbus. What I find interesting is that something must have happened. When the Jackets played Toronto recently, MacLean went out of his way to trash Rimer repeatedly on his radio show. It didn't sound like teasing and in fun. It sounded like pure disdain and anger.

I had a buddy out in Vegas 2 weeks ago and he said the odds were 50-1.

Oh I think he is a mini Don Cherry. Both of them throw a temper tantrum when someone gets more attention than they do. It's what drives them.

What are you smoking? I know we'd be better with Brassard still in the line-up but, brought to tears Come on!

We're more than likely going to make the playoffs even without him. Look ahead, and count your blessings for the fact that he will be hear for years to come.

Sports Illustrated Jackets Love

Just opened this weeks SI and see that a nice article on the Jackets leads the "Inside the NHL" feature. Great to see some love from a big national publication. Not that the cover the NHL in depth, but the do treat it with some respect (nice articles on Brodeur & Bobby Orr recently).

Anyway, thought I'd point it out. I looked for the article on SI.com, but couldn't find it. Maybe someone less technically challenged than I can link it.

Note to mods, feel free to merge to Interesting Info thread, if appropriate. I just was pretty tickled to make SI!
