Happy Thursday, everyone!
The Blue Jackets have returned to the ice. Congratulations, you made it through the Olympic break and now we've got a wild ride to the finish line ahead of us. We certainly hope you got your rest, because this stretch of 24 games in about seven weeks is going to be a blast; and not to mention the NHL trade deadline approaching in less than a week.
With the schedule starting back up, there's been a lot to talk about. Trade deadline buzz, standings talk, Gaborik's return...and so much more. We're breaking it down in this week's spotlight.
Here are this week's links...
- The Coach from The Union Blue gives us a detailed breakdown of what's already happened and what could be ahead for the Jackets. He goes big picture and small picture in this in-depth feature.
- Here's a big, information-filled two weeks' worth of prospects review from our friend CBJ Prospects.
- Dan P. from SB Nation's Cannon blog previews "the sprint" that awaits the Blue Jackets on their march to the playoffs.
- And another link from SB Nation: examining the trade deadline strategy for the Jackets...should they add or stand pat?
- Alison Lukan from FOXSportsOhio.com tells the story of Black Tie Blue Jackets through the eyes of pediatric cancer hero Ryan Dozer. It's worth a read.
See you next Friday - same time, same place!
