OT: Jackets Clinch! Good for RJ.

I don't know how many of you guys out there will feel about this, but I am honestly proud of the Blue Jackets. I've been following them around since the offseason. RJ being traded there was the big reason, but I have to same I'm happy for anyone who stayed loyal long enough to finally see the day when the Jackets made the playoffs.

On Columbus' team page RJ Umberger finished in 3rd place for the poll for team MVP:
1st: Steve Mason - 66.67%
2nd: Rick Nash - 21.71%
3rd: RJ Umberger - 7.58%
4th: Fedor Tyutin - 4.05%

While it's not a huge percentage of the vote the fact that he was able to become a major part of another team is awesome. I'm very happy for him. He won't be lighting it up for us this postseason, but it's alright. He deserves whatever he gets in Columbus.

Remember when he and the rest of the gang won the Calder Cup with the Phantoms? It was awesome. He never won a Stanley Cup with us, but he definitely gave us one of the most memorable playoff runs in recent memory.

RJ is currently 4th on the team in points with 46, and 2nd on the team in goals with 26.

Sorry if this thread is inappropriate in any way...I just thought he deserved our support. I hope CBJ can go far in the West this year.

I just hopes he tears it up like he did against Montreal.

Yeah I don't mind the Blue Jackets at all, I am happy they made the playoffs finally. Good on RJ as well!

If the Flyers dont win the Cup here are the teams that i would rather see win, in order:

1. Red Wings
2. Blue Jackets
3. Blackhawks
4. Sharks
5. Bruins

But I hope RJ goes on a tear.

Yeah just saw this on Sports Center. Haven't been paying much attention to them this year. Are they playing decent enough to get through a round or two?

Im happy for them. Considered my second favorite team. And they are doing this well without Brassard . Even if they dont get this far this year. I am calling it already, they will be a force next year.

If the Flyers go out, I'm fully supporting JR.


Excellent for the Jackets' franchise and fans to clinch a playoff birth; I hope they go on a run like Minnesota did in 2003. It's also nice to see Hitch and Umberger be a part of the first playoff appearance for Columbus.

Meh.. it depends on who they play. If its the Sharks or Wings, I dont believe so. If they get anyone else, say the Hawks or Canucks, they have a very good chance. The Wings and Sharks are just to nasty...

Me too.

I jumped on the CBJ bandwagon as soon as RJ was traded. I've always been a fan of Rick Nash, but Umberger solidified it. Then I saw players like Brassard and Voracek and was like "Wow, this team is going to be awesome some time soon."

Well I'm originally a wings fan. I started watching hokey by watching the wings but since then I am a strict flyers fan. But RJ is up next. And to think I went to riley cotes carnival and shook hands with him and wished him the best of luck in cbj.

I thought I read that he (Brassard) could potentially be back if the team advanced to the 2nd round.

Don't quote me on this though, I could be wrong.

i think the more prudent thing would be for them to just let him rest. they'll go as far as they can go, but i don't see them risking losing brassard for longer when they probably don't think they have an incredible chance to win.

good on RJ. i would have liked to have kept him, but c'est la vie. bonne chance!

You never know. If they feel they can use him to get a few more home dates...that's key revenue.

Jackets could have a very bright future.

Mason in net

Russell, Klesla, Hejda in defense.

Voracek, Brassard, RJ, Nash, Huselius, and etc. at forward.

Could be a team to keep an eye on.

i dont know if Nash will stay. He's a UFA next summer. Same with Klesla, who I'd love to see in O&B

true, they'd have to weigh short term gains with the possibility of having longterm repercussions. i'd personally wait until next season and dominate with a healthy team (and hopefully some key free agents).

Great for RJ. If the Flyers don't win, I would love to see teh blue jackets get it. If Mason gets really hot, and Nash starts to roll, they could have a chance
