The 2015-16 season is underway, and the Blue Jackets are determined to make up for lost time.

After the departure of Todd Richards and the addition of new bench boss John Tortorella, there has been a lot of talk about what's in store for the Jackets in the upcoming days and weeks, and the internet (as you'd expect) has been all over it.

The good people at Buckeye State Hockey talk about the change in the team's dynamic that Tortorella will bring to the Blue Jackets, and they put together this awesome goal breakdown starting with Nick Foligno's goal against Toronto last week.  

Over at The Cannon, a story posted about why Tortorella taking charge is a good thing is a lengthy, in-depth read.

A piece on The Hockey Writers discusses how playtime is over in Columbus now that a new boss bench has taken over.
