Columbus Blue Jackets

The Columbus Blue Jackets have actually played well of late.

This was fairly predictable. The Blue Jackets got Rick Nash back from his injury woes, and Sergei Fedorov has started to fit in with his new team. Plus, the Columbus brass acted decisively to publicly buy into the plan by signing Doug MacLean to a contract extension, giving further credence to the notion that the team believes it is headed in the right direction. The Jackets' terrible start to the season has scuttled their chances to make the playoffs this year, but if they can build fan interest in the team the rest of the year, and have some momentum going into the off season, they'll be a playoff contender next season.
