Well, we certainly hope you are all well-rested because… THE BLUE JACKETS’ HOME OPENER IS TOMORROW NIGHT!!
We haven’t been getting much sleep either. It’s been a busy week in Columbus. The regular season is underway, Ryan Johansen is back in uniform, and the party is planned for Saturday night at Nationwide Arena. We figured fans would have a take on all these happenings, and did they ever!
With the season underway, The Dark Blue Jacket gives us their preview for the Blue Jackets.
BS Hockey gave their take on the Blue Jackets' defense corps and how Tim Erixon can have a big impact this season. They also feel that the true X-factor for this Jackets team just may be the man behind the bench, Todd Richards.
We love fancy stats, and The Union Blue have announced their own analytics project. They will spend the season tracking advanced stats related to rebounds in games and how they affect teams both offensively and defensively. (Oh, you faaaancy, huh? Yes, yes you are. We like this.)
Johansen is a Blue Jacket, fans are excited, and The Cannon gave its take on what that signing means for both Ryan and the Blue Jackets.
