|I have no photo of Jared Boll. |
As in, never have taken a photo of Jared Boll.
A frequent on-ice pugilist (and occasional victor), Boll played in 54 games last year. His playing time was limited due to broken thumb from slugging Carolina's Byron Allen in the preseason (out from October 1 through November 10th) and a broken foot from blocking a shot against Dallas (out from February 10th through March 11th). He had two goals, one assist and 126 PIMs last season. He now is on track to average over a million bucks a seasons. Yup.
As I type, the Blue Jackets have 22 men on their roster. Eight of those players (Boll included) have seen a whopping four different people serve as their head coach since the beginning of the 2009-10 season. 21 of the 22 experienced the 2011-12 season in Columbus first-hand. As it stands, it's hard to see how this team isn't headed for anything meaningfully different than the 18-21-2 pace that we saw during the interim head coaching tenure of Todd Richards.
