Blackhawks have sunk to Jackets' level

In my opinion, it's not so much an insult as it is an indication that the Jackets are starting to, surprisingly, worry other teams. Here's hoping the boys keep on rolling with these "Gotcha!" games.

What a great thread to go backtrack through. My surprise was Commodore LOL. Wishful thinking never killed anybody in the offseason, right?

Reading the comments, I get the impression the CBJ are not being taken seriously by the other teams, and that can only be good.

I hope it's taped up too. We earned it by lazy play. I don't like it. But we earned it. This is exactly why we cannot do anything less than fight our brains out. It's about honor. And after every game I would move the quote to above the players cube that stunk up the ice.

Screw Chicago respect. What about sportsclubstats.com respect?



I'm no math major but how does a team with the same number of points and games played have a 30% greater chance of making the playoffs.

Considering the Hawks have played well enough to have been in the playoffs the last two years and won the Cup, last year, the fact that we hold a one-game edge in the all-time series probably means that they have just recently risen to our level!

Congratulations to the Second City!

Wow. Commodore as my surprise and Clark as my disappointment... yeah, kind of blew that one.

Seems insulting to me. I guess it's nothing undeserved, since the CBJ have earned no respect, but I do not believe it will be long before the upper teams start to realize the CBJ are the ones going up and not that they're going down...

Might or might not happen this year, but I'm convinced that the organization is strengthening and will be a factor in the Western Conference down the road.

I guess what I hate most about articles like this is that they show such a short term memory. It wasn't long ago that CHI couldn't beat their way out of a paper bag. Perhaps they should be more concerned with why they can't sustain their level of success. I'd sell my mother for a cup, but there is wisdom in planning for many runs at cups vs one big one. Can't discount the loss of Tallon up there either.... IOW, they should have better things to worry about than trashing other teams.

Just talked to a friend of mine who was traveling through Chicago last night. He said he was listening to the radio and heard them talking about the Hawks just having a "heartbreaking loss to the Columbus Blue Jackets" and he said he just smiled and thought....damn, go Jackets!

Read entire article.

This is how the 90% of the NHL views us. Reality check. But lets be honest, what have the Jackets done in 10 years to reverse this??? Nothing. Yeah this articles irritates me, and I hope the team uses it as motivation, but this isnt surprising to me at all. I have always known that the rest of the NHL takes us as the biggest joke in the league. We need to start making the playoffs on a consistent basis, and win some games in the playoffs for teams to start taking us seriously.

I always thought sportsclubstats only took into account records and probabilities. And never factored in talent, skill etc.

The reason they could have Chicago 30% higher, is possibly a easier strength of schedule for the remaining 24 games. Just a thought. Dont know for sure though.

Perfectly said.

I really wish some would think before whining on the mains. Some of those threads are so embarrassing. It's one thing to whine and complain on your own board, but going to the mains and expecting anything but mocking and derision is just stupid at this point. Makes us all look bad, IMO.

The article is annoying, it pisses me off, but it's also written from a perspective that many hold. The CBJ are inconsequential...until that changes, we're gonna see articles or hear comments like this. No sense in crying like little girls with skinned knees about it.
