Keep Calm and Carry the Flag

Yesterday in the Columbus Dispatch Mike Arace opined that the Blue Jackets need stirred up.  I agree with him on that assessment.  However, I disagree with him on his suggested method, which was a trade of some kind.   I think the impending return of Brandon Dubinsky will stir things enough to make a trade unnecessary.

Strangely enough, the best quality Jarmo Kekalainen could bring to his job now would be patience.  If this season goes off the rails, all you have to do is look at the injuries.  This team has shown that it can win with the people we have, we just need to get them on the ice.  The story of this season is not yet written.  We are still in 'Book I' where the seeds of the tragedy are sown.  How the rest of the story plays out remains to be seen.  Now is not the time for action for the sake of action.  The pot will be stirred whether we will or no, at a pace dictated by the healing of Dubinsky's groins.  If they keep working, they will be okay.

Thanks for taking the time to read our blog.  We here at the Dark Blue Jacket wish all of you a happy and prosperous Thanksgiving!

  1. Besides, who do you trade? Some of that sought-after young talent, I think not. If this season goes down the proverbial toilet, chalk it up to the fickle nature of the hockey gods ( where are you Jobu ) You don't trade away viable assets for one or two wins now. Fielding 2/3rds of an N H L line-up won't win many games, but I would rather take my lumps than give away the likes of Wennberg or Reichel. All I ask is put forth the effort, you know, like last season, when guys were out, it was "next man up" God I hate that phrase. But put forth the effort and I will stand with you C B J !!!!!!
