If you aren't yet familiar with Columbus Blue Jackets right winger Nikolai Zherdev, just take these two words as a hint: Alexei Kovalev. Same game, different body. If Zherdev could speak a word of English other than "puck" or "good", we might be talking about some of his comments in the media. But deep inside of the hearts of all Jackets fans, we know "Z" is one confused g...

Training Camp Preview

Posted Saturday | Comments 0
August means NFL pre-season and the final stretch in the pennant races. It means golf's final major, sending kids back to school and getting those last few days in at the pool to drown away the scorching heat. What it doesn't mean, however, is hockey. That means it's up to people like me to lend my insight (or my two cents as some put it) into the upcoming season. E...
You can never win the Stanley Cup in the preseason, but it's certainly possible to take steps backward to relinquish that dream. The Blue Jackets, who were arguable the NHL's most stoic team in the offseason, have a few questions to answer before being fully prepared for next Friday's season opener vs. Anaheim. Unfortunately, the answers will have to come from within. [...

New Style Brings New Results

Posted Wednesday | Comments 0
Six years of losing and embarrassment can do a number on the confidence of young players, let alone the fans. Having never been charged with being consistent or organized, the Columbus Blue Jackets fired head coach Gerard Gallant on November 13, 2006. The old cliche "it's easier to fire one coach than the whole team" didn't even need applied- the fans knew what was wron...

Coming Out Party

Posted Friday | Comments 0
This year's crop of rookies in the National Hockey League is impressive. Jonathan Toews, Patrick Kane, Sam Gagner, Bryan Little and Tyler Kennedy have made significant contributions to not only their respective teams, but also the fanbases. Often overlooked (due to the market) is Blue Jackets defenseman Kris Russell. With the Medicine Hat Tigers, he was considered one o...

How Much More Can He Take?

Posted Tuesday | Comments 0
[b]Blue Jackets head coach Ken Hitchcock[/b] looks as if he's aged forty years in the past four days. And rightfully so. His team's performance has been brilliant in minute stretches, pitiful in large quantities and unspirited for the majority. After a solid start to the season, his team is now last in goal-scoring in the National Hockey League, and have fallen from a top ...

Who Needs the Coach, Anyway?

Posted Wednesday | Comments 0
Hockey fans don't hear of this too often, nor will many of us ever see it again. The Blue Jackets coaches did not run practice today in Ottawa. Head coach Ken Hitchcock stuck around long enough to apparently alert captain Adam Foote of the proceedings. According to Aaron Portzline of the [i]Columbus Dispatch[/i], Hitchcock used a strategy similar to this when he coa...

New Coach? PARISE

Posted Tuesday | Comments 0
The Devils are yet to hire a coach. Most fans and experts say (including Eklund) Michael Therrien will become the coach. But Ken Hitchcock former Flyer coach is a HIGH possibility as well. NOW PARISE.... Parise, the Devils organization, and the fans all together would love to avoid arbitration. I think Parise and the Devils will avoid it and will come up w...

The Specter returns!

Posted Wednesday | Comments 1
Last we heard reports of an eeeerie presence serenading in the halls of the Key Bank Center and locker room of the Buffalo Sabres....turn out the lights the parties over. Now, the ghost of Jim Morrison has appeared before head coach Dan Abysmal in his office, effectively causing a nasty stink and a brown wet patch on Dan's pants. (that's not from him falling on the ice)...
