First, it's The New York Times talking about the Columbus Blue Jackets. Through an admittedly New Yorker lens, granted, but this is Big Time exposure for the team.
Second, co-conspirator Morgan and the DBJ blog get mentions in the article. Big "w00t!" to Morgan and us. I can't speak for Morgan, but I'm flattered that the DBJ blog is being mentioned as a source of information related to the team.
Third, it's a very, very "eyes wide open" article. The team has a ton of challenges, largely due to history. That said, the fundamentals of stable franchise ownership, the high-quality Columbus community and the small but rabid fanbase suggest that the only thing holding the Columbus Blue Jackets back is the team itself. That's why Davidson is here.
A darned good article by Ken Belson. Go read it.
