Wait...it's really August, isn't it? We're approximately six weeks from the start of Blue Jackets training camp, so hopefully that made your Friday even brighter.
Before you grab the flip-flops and head off to the beach this weekend -- or whatever you plan on doing -- we’re here to catch you up on all things Blue Jackets.
On tap this week, reflecting on Cam Atkinson’s 2013-14 season, discussing how one becomes a Blue Jackets fan and looking toward the nine-month battle that lies ahead. With the temperatures around central Ohio taking a dip recently, it is starting to feel more and more like hockey season, which isn't a bad thing. Until we drop the puck in Buffalo – 69 days from today – the offseason will carry on and there will be much more activity to report.
Here are this week’s links:
- The number-happy folks over at BShockey.com break down Cam Atkinson’s 2013-14 campaign.
- Belief will be the driving force behind Columbus’ 2014-15 season, according to The Hockey Writers.
