The Columbus Blue Jackets made a splash during last season’s trade deadline season as they loaded up for a shot at glory in the playoffs. While things didn’t pan out quite as they had hoped, the Jackets eked into the postseason and made history with their first round sweep over what many presumed would be the dominant and superior Tampa Bay Lightning. The Jackets don’t have any of their rentals from last season and may have lost Artemi Panarin and Sergei Bobrovsky to unrestricted free agency, but they’re still finding ways to win. John Tortorella’s teams never lack a work ethic and that blue collar attitude has been paying off for them.
Managing Editor Pale Dragon from Jackets Cannon joins Crown Conversations to talk all things CBJ and the reasons behind their scoring woes. Sadly, we forgot to discuss Jeff Carter, the boos, and his handsomeness. But I’m assuming you got all your salt from our preview.
