Game 74/Chicago: My Take



If you EVER think to yourself, "That DBJ - what a jerk. Always getting on the Blue Jackets' case. Never finding the positives. Yadda yadda yadda..." --- All I can say is: Watch these highlights.

The story of the 2009-2010 Columbus Blue Jackets is the frustration of wasted potential. The CBJ could have been the equivalent of the Colorado Avalanche, a young team that pulls it together to run through the league like a hot knife through butter and into the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Instead, we saw too many young players regress...and that catastrophically bad December.

This team has talent. They have skill. They CAN win. They can drop 8 on the number one team in the Western Conference.

So excuse me if I am frustrated. It's games like this that make me dream about what could have been this year...

  1. The biggest difference I saw was that the Jackets had active sticks on defense. It's been longer than I can remember since I watched them put that much effort into every second of defense. It gives me high hopes when I go Saturday to take my daughter to her first Blue Jackets game.
