Ryan Murray

The Blue Jackets believe there is much more for defenseman Ryan Murray to learn about being an everyday NHL defenseman, which is why he was in the lineup for a largely meaningless game last night against the Edmonton Oilers. Murray, limited to eight games this season because of injuries, played his first since he suffered a high-ankle sprain on Feb.6. But there is one aspect of the NHL that Murray knows all too well. “I’ve done this a couple times,” Murray said of returning from a long injury absence. “Hopefully, I’m here to stay now.”

Jacket Trades

I was just reading all the negative comments about this team and the present management,,there are a couple positive ones and 50 or more negative ones many are not renewing their tickets. The Wiz trade really pissed off a lot of fans. Many are saying the Jamo and Davidson are as bad as the previous mgm.

jackets Injuries

Portzline:   
I've gotten the sense from some players that they don't have the utmost confidence in the treatment they've received here. It's a tough story to cover or write about, because players are reluctant to talk about it with their names on it, and we don't feel it is right to besmirch the names of those involved. AND ONE OTHER THING, that is not small: Nothing has been proven. Any team that leads the league in man-games lost has to look at how they're handling treatment. It's not just the doctors, but the training staff and the strength and conditioning staff. The club has already said they've looked into the matter, at least a few times. I'd be surprised if a much more intense look isn't underway.

NHL All-Star Weekend

Columbus will be deluged in a few days with ice-hockey fans from Ohio, neighboring states and beyond. An estimated 140,000 people, including 8,000 to 10,000 out-of-towners, are expected to partake in the myriad events that make up NHL All-Star Weekend. The economic impact of the event is expected to extend well beyond the obvious crowds, as Sunday’s game will be seen in 150 countries, providing rare and valuable media exposure for the city. Going to be a fun time will be doing the slide ha.

Richards needs to go

Asked if he has been pleased or displeased with the leadership in the dressing room during the tailspin, coach Todd Richards said: “It’s definitely not displeased. Part of the leadership and all of that has to start with me, so I don’t look much further than myself. If things aren’t going right in there … it has to start with me and get to the guys who have command of that room, guys who have a voice in that room. I think we can all do a better job.”
As a fan and ticket holder this is the same problem the Jackets have had for ten years. Even with the new management they make bad trades and don't get it when it come to fireing a coach.

Jackets injuries pile up

Center Artem Anisimov was leveled by Ottawa's Eric Gryba at 8:04 of the second period, a shoulder-to-head hit that sent Anisimov flat on his back, his helmet flying. He suffered an apparent concussion and is day-to-day, according to the club.
Defenseman James Wisniewski played only three shifts in the third period and suffered a broken finger. Blue Jackets coach Todd Richards said he'd miss one-to-two weeks with a broken finger.
“Whether I’ve done something, or somebody’s done something to the hockey gods … I’ve never seen anything like this,” Blue Jackets coach Todd Richards said. “It seems like every time we play a game somebody’s getting hurt.

Nikita Nikitin traded

The Edmonton Oilers were able to come to a deal with potential free agent defenseman Nikita Nikitin and now their trade with the Columbus Blue Jackets is official.
The Oilers send a fifth-round pick in the 2014 draft to the Jackets for the 28-year old Russian blue liner. Elliotte Friedman of CBC reports his new contract is a two-year deal worth $9 million. It’s a bit much on money and a $4.5 million cap hit won’t look so hot on the books, but at two years it’s not a killer deal by any means.
wow this is the same stupid trades that this organization has made over the last 5 years. We just love to trade good players for unproven draft picks.
