Saturday’s spectacular season finale against Nashville was just a few days ago, but with the draft lottery over and playoffs starting tonight (!) we’re already right in the off-season for the Blue Jackets. It’s a really shocking and a depressing prospect, especially following the insane oh-so-close-to-miracle run that Columbus had to close out the year. But there is much left to consider, storylines to debunk, stray observations to make, crazy ideas to share.
So starting today we’re going to have a CBJ 2013 Review, a look back at what was with some thoughts about what will come next. As of now we’ve got posts planned on team MVP, most impressive forwards, best d-men, best promise for the future, and comments on coaching. But it’s not all roses (the Jackets would be in the playoffs otherwise), and I can’t help but notice some low points, areas that need to be changed.
I hope you find something interesting in this little project and be sure to let me know what you think about my comments and picks! This all starts later today with the team MVP.
