So far, rumors of the demise of the Columbus Blue Jackets have proved to be overblown.
At the same time, the team will have to get better results than it has through the first 10 percent of the season to make a fourth straight trip to the Stanley Cup Playoffs.
Ten percent, of course, isn't a lot, but it is perhaps the point where you can start putting stock in the bigger-picture trends we've seen so far. For the Blue Jackets, that means looking at both the results the team has and the way it has played.
