Bluejackets NHL

The jackets are in trouble. There is no doubt that the club is struggling. Is it time for a coaching change? Its a long season but they have dug a big hole to climb out of.

Tuesday, December 08, 2009

Blue Jackets

Also to blame for this terrible infliction has to be pointed toward the Blue Jackets organization. For whatever reason, the organization has coddled Mason which only increases the effects of the disease. The organization is fully aware of Mason's affliction as Dave Rook, Blue Jackets goaltending coach, recently told ESPN. "Basically, he had trouble handling the success he had last year," Rook told ESPN.com. "Maybe it's not as easy as he thought it was. "He needs to make sure he doesn't forget where he is and how much of a privilege it is to be here," said Rook.

James Neal suspended

The NHL has suspended Dallas Stars forward James Neal two games for a boarding infraction that injured the Columbus Blue Jackets' Derek Dorsett.
The NHL announced the discipline on Friday. Neal will miss games against New Jersey on Saturday and Carolina on Monday.
Neal also will forfeit $8,515 in salary, with the money going to the Players' Emergency Assistance Fund.
Neal hit Dorsett from behind at 13:01 of the second period in Thursday's 4-1 loss. Dorsett was dazed after striking his head on the boards, and Neal was assessed a major penalty for boarding and a game misconduct.

Voracek

For now Voracek is a second-liner in Columbus, but his coach doesn’t think that will last.“I think he has a chance to be a No. 1 right winger in the league,” Hitchcock said. “Our biggest challenge is getting him to shoot more, because he always wants to make plays. If he’s able to score on a more regular basis, he really should come out as a No. 1 right winger in the league.”

Huselius Blue Jackets

Huselius was injured in practice on Tuesday and will be sidelined at least one week. His arm was in a sling during the Blue Jackets' shootout loss to San Jose on Wednesday night. In 13 games this season, he has five goals and four assists. Last year he ranked second on the club in scoring with 21 goals and 35 assists.
The 24-year-old Picard, Syracuse's leading goal-scorer with five, has two assists in 58 career NHL games.

Stretching for ice hockey

Every hockey player's pre-game routine should include warm-up exercises. In addition to skill exercises and light drills, stretching should be part of a good warm-up. When executed correctly, stretching helps reduce the risk of injury and increases flexibility. The following stretching program is designed for hockey players who often are subjected to wet, cramped locker rooms where stretching from a position on the floor is difficult. These group stretches should be done both before and after activity.

Kings defenseman Rob Scuderi

Kings defenseman Rob Scuderi was fined an undisclosed amount by the NHL on Monday for his low hit on Columbus' Jason Chimera on Sunday at Staples Center.
Scuderi wasn't suspended for the hit, which occurred during the first period and wasn't penalized by the on-ice officials. The NHL reviews debatable plays and can impose a fine or suspension.

Malhotra

More salt in the wound from last night for the CBJ, Kopitar was 1st Star of the league last night and Malhotra was 2nd star with 2 goals

Jackets tough on the penalty kill

The BlueJackets will have to be killers tonight, penalty killers that is and to this point in the season it has been no problem. At 94.4%, the Union Blue at 1st in the league in that department. Credit a high pressure approach with improved personnel even if it's only 1 guy. Sammy Pahllson has really added a missing element on the penalty kill that has made the unit elite.

Jordan LaVallee-Smotherman

Select the right size hockey stick to play ice hockey

The first thing you need to do is select the type of hockey stick you want. Hockey sticks come in many different types and brands. You need to determine if you want a one piece hockey stick or one where you put on the hockey blade yourself. You will have to determine what type of shaft you want. Hockey stick come in many different materials. Wood hockey sticks are the cheapest but are also the heaviest. The light weight sticks are made of composites,carbon graphite,titanium and can get very expensive.

Red Wings forward Jason Williams

Red Wings forward Jason Williams hopes to exceed expectations
Playing fewer minutes per game with Columbus, Williams was far more
effective scoring 29 points in 39 games with the blue Jackets.I think it was a mistake to not resign Williams,Jackets make some bad moves IMO.

Sunday, August 30, 2009

Filatov

Filatov, due to arrive in Columbus this week, is expected to make the Jackets this season, triggering his three-year, entry-level deal. He scored four goals in eight games last season. He also had 16 goals and 16 assists in 39 games with minor-league Syracuse.

Rick Nash will he resign with Columbus

After making their first-ever post-season appearance, the Columbus Blue Jackets will experience another first at the 2009 NHL Entry Draft as they select out of the top 10 for the first time in franchise history. First, does Nash want to remain in Columbus. If he goes to unrestricted free agency next summer there is no question he will be the most sought-after UFA on the market maybe of all-time. Many teams will take that into consideration this year when preparing their budgets for the 2010-11 season. Also, does Nash want to continue playing for coach Ken Hitchcock?

Mason Columbus Blue Jackets

Sporting News magazine named the Columbus Blue Jackets goaltender as its NHL rookie of the year last week, as Mason beat out high-scoring forwards Bobby Ryan and Kris Versteeg in voting by 292 NHL players.
If history is any guide, Mason should like his chances of taking home the Calder Trophy as the NHL’s top rookie when the league holds its annual awards night next month in Las Vegas. Nine of the past 11 Sporting News rookie-of-the-year award winners have received the Calder, which is voted on by professional hockey writers.

Rick Nash Columbus Blue Jackets

Columbus Blue Jackets finding a center for Rick Nash: The problem is that I don't see a good fit in the free agent marketplace. I see Saku Koivu re-signing in Montreal. The one wild card idea I like is going after Mike Cammalleri, who can play wing or center.Anybody have any thoughts on this.

Fighting in hockey

The GMs recommended in March that a misconduct be given to players who fight immediately after a faceoff and for any staged bout. There is also a campaign to eliminate fights that are sparked by a clean hit.
Wilson doesn’t deny that aspects of fighting, and its role in the game, and the risks it presents need to be reviewed and discussed by the league’s general mangers. Those talks are expected to continue at the next meeting of club executives. But another hot topic in recent years is what should be done about late hits and blows to the head. There is still no uniform resolution how to control that and what the penalty should be to offenders."I went to a fight and a hockey game broke out"

NHL should be embarrassed

There is nothing worse the a official determine the out come of a game.No wonder fans can't stand the referees,it was a shit call with all the penalties going on before that call.The NHL should be embarrassed.

Bluejackets vs Redwings

Detroit will win if... It doesn't get flustered. Too often, good goalies seem to get in the head of the Red Wings, who like to make the pretty play and score the fancy goal. Mason has shown the ability to stone even the most offensive of teams, so the Red Wings can't lose their composure if the rookie steals a period, or even a game. The Red Wings have the talent and the tenacity to break through against any team -- as long as they stick with the game plan that has served them so well during the regular season.

Columbus will win if... They do everything absolutely right. It's no big secret to say that the Blue Jackets will have to be at the top of their game in order to solve the defending Cup champion. But Hitchcock has a way of making his team's play close-to-perfect hockey. For this team, it means getting consistent scoring from a line other than Nash's, killing power plays effectively and scoring on their own power play more often than once every blue moon. If they can do all that -- and Mason is on his game -- the Jackets have a puncher's chance here.

Bluejackets lose again

Another poor performance by the Jackets.Mason should have been pulled and the defense looked terrible.If the Bluejackets think they can play like this in the playoffs they have another thing coming.They will be out in four for sure 5 games.Playing like that on fan appreciation night is totally embarrassing.

Rick Nash notched his second hat trick of the season as the Columbus Blue Jackets crushed the Detroit Red Wings, 8-2, at Joe Louis Arena. I have to admit "what a game"

Columbus Blue Jackets Vermette

The Columbus Blue Jackets traded goaltender Pascal Leclaire and a second-round pick to the Ottawa Senators on Wednesday for center Antoine Vermette.
The 26-year-old Vermette Ht: 6' 1" Wt: 200 Age: 26
Born: 7/20/1982, St-Agapit, Quebec
Shoots: left
Drafted: 2000 - Rd 2
The Columbus Blue Jackets had been pursued by the Blue Jackets for some time. He is seen as their center of the future and will be positioned on the first line between Rick Nash and Kristian Huselius as Columbus makes its first playoff push in the franchise's eight seasons.

Manny has been looking pretty good not sure I would take him off the 1st line.

Jackets need to look better then they did tonight.7 shots or so through the second period isn't going to get it done.

Goaltender Steve Mason

The Columbus Blue Jackets plan to monitor goaltender Steve Mason (mononucleosis) on a day-to-day basis.
Mason apparently didn't notify the coaching and training staff of his symptoms for more than a month. He ended up starting 20 consecutive games before the streak ended last Friday.
It's hard to imagine the Blue Jackets will earn their first playoff spot in franchise history if their rookie sensation doesn't make a quick and full recovery.

Tuesday, February 03, 2009

Columbus Blue Jackets goaltender Steve Mason

There has been some concern as of late to Columbus Blue Jackets goaltender Steve Mason's lackluster performances in back-to-back games. The reason?
He has mononucleosis.
It was reported by the Columbus Dispatch that he has been suffering from the infection for about three to four weeks.
His spleen has not enlarged, which is an indicator that he has a mild form of the infection.
Mason has been superb in net this year. He currently has a 19-12-2 record and leads the league with seven shutouts and a 1.98 goals against average.

NHL War Room Blue Jackets

It seems that this season the war room is against us. Last night in the game against New Jersey, the war room went in the opposing teams favor for the third time the season (all of which were iffy calls). They called the goal for the Devils last night inconclusive, when on the video you can clearly see the net is knocked off. If we were given a no goal for last night, and goals for Nash and Manny Malholtra earlier in the season, we could have at least 4 more points. That would put us in a better situation that we are in now.
I think a big problem with the war room up in Toronto is that the employees are ex-NHL players. They need to get some referees or other off-ice officials who are not biased to the situation. It seems to me, not only in the Columbus games, but all games, they rule to the team that has been around longer in the NHL and has had a better rep of making it to play-offs. The Blue Jackets have been playing the best we have ever played, and unfortunately because of the war room we are not where we should be and deserve to me. The first time or so you think of it as unlucky, but after this repeatedly happening when it keeps us in or out of a play-off spot, it always seems to go to the other team.
