EDITOR'S NOTE: This is our weekly look around the #CBJ community to see what's being talked about, debated, and highlighted by the greatest fans in the National Hockey League. Have a suggestion or submission for next week's edition? Hit up @RobMixer on Twitter and let him know.

Happy Friday, everyone!

It has definitely been a busy week in Blue Jackets land, beginning with the 1-0 victory on Tuesday night and then, the unfortunate news of Sergei Bobrovsky's injury on Wednesday. With today being a game day - and an important one against the Minnesota Wild to begin the (interim) Curtis McElhinney chapter - there is definitely a buzz in the Blue Jackets blogosphere and there has been plenty of conversation about a variety of topics.

Therefore, it's in my best interest to keep this introductory part short and cut to the chase. Here are the featured links for the latest edition of our Community Spotlight.
