I have not watched any Rangers playoff games as yet. Has Nash really been invisible, other than today's goal? I remember him being a shrinking violet against the Wings in 08/09 - and pretty much just going through the motions after that series.

For them to scratch him seems like a hell of a statement.

RE: The Rangers. Having paid more attention to them in the past few months, I've come to the realization that they're a mediocre team with the best goaltender in the NHL. If they don't have Lundqvist, they're finishing 9th-12th in the conference.

Nash hasn't been as bad as some of the criticism Milbury has given him but he still hasn't exactly elevated his game like he should have.

This has been the Rangers MO for the last few years. Everyone buys into Tortorella's system, which is kind of impressive. At the same time, they don't have the skill to take it a step further. Lundqvist is a godsend for them

As for the criticism of Nash, I think Keith Jones made the biggest statement about him, saying he's simply not in shape to handle the playoffs right now

Broads sporting the new divisions - nice! Just looks a bit weird seeing it in a discussion forum, for the first time.

I miss Raffi Torres.

Hate to see Matthews go. He's been the lone redeeming factor of more bad games and lost seasons than I care to remember.

Other than Davidge, Wolfe and Pizzuti, is there anyone left from the expansion days?

Love the Davidson commercial they're running - I haven't been this jacked for a season to start so soon after the last ended for years.

Think they'res a few of the original scouts still remaining.

I too, love those commercials. A big step up from those county fair-esque ads that ended with Rimer yelling.

... just read the piece on Puck Rakers, about the 2003 draft - the horror ... the horror. The CBJ wanted Horton, but Florida wouldn't deal the third. So the CBJ chose between Zherdev and Vanek. Ryan Suter goes three picks after the CBJ took Fritsche, in the third.

I had managed to block it from my memory.

Really interesting article - points out how the Ducks and Flyers remade their identities with multiple firsts in a deep draft: Getzlaf/Perry and Carter/Richards.

Godspeed, Jarmo and crew.

Yeah, I'd never heard the Horton bit either. Narrowing your choice to Zherdev and Vanek - and selecting Zherdev - is classic early CBJ, though. Not knocking the process - I remember Zherdev being THE guy at that spot. But it's just another of those situations where the CBJ missed on a 50-50 call.

As feral swine continue to pop up in parts of Ohio where they don’t belong, wildlife experts are increasingly convinced that residents are illegally transporting the invasive species from southern states.

No sightings have been confirmed in central Ohio yet, but one wildlife expert called their invasion inevitable.

“For decades, they were only in a handful of states,” said Dave Pauli, senior director of wildlife innovation and response at the U.S. Humane Society. “People are definitely moving them around.”

He said reality-television shows such as A&E’s Lady Hoggers and American Hoggers have inspired people to import the pigs, which have huge populations in states including Florida, Georgia and Texas.

“There are a lot of guys that think, ‘Gee, it’d be nice if I had hogs here,’  ” Pauli said. Moving these animals from place to place is a problem across the country, he said. “Pretty much, if they’re anywhere outside of Texas, Georgia, Florida and a few others, they’ve been moved.”

Craig Hicks, a wildlife disease biologist with the U.S. Department of Agriculture, hunts down feral swine in Ohio. He said feral pigs can ruin crops and soil, outcompete native wildlife and carry disease.

The USDA estimates feral swine cost taxpayers more than $1 billion each year in damage and control efforts.

For years, feral pigs were contained mostly in southeastern Ohio. But now they have been found as far north as Ashtabula County near Lake Erie and as far west as Butler County along the Indiana border.

Dr. Leah Dorman, a veterinarian and director of food programs at the Ohio Farm Bureau’s Center for Food and Animal Issues, said that because feral swine can transmit disease to farm pigs, they put Ohio’s $1.8 billion pork industry at risk.She said farmers across the state have reported crop damage.

Hicks, who described his statewide pig-hunting operation as a “one-man show,” euthanizes feral swine that he catches.

Dave Kohler, executive administrator for wildlife management and research at the Ohio Department of Natural Resources, said it is illegal to transfer a number of wild animals, including skunks, possums and raccoons. Doing so could be punishable by fine, restitution, imprisonment or seizure of the animal, according to the Ohio Revised Code.

As far as the feral pigs are concerned, he said, state investigators know people are relocating them.

“That’s not a situation in which they’ve migrated naturally,” Kohler said. “The highway system is how those animals were moved, and that’s pretty obvious.”


GOD DAMN HILLBILLIES.

Sounds like Bobrovsky was the run-away Vezina winner - well deserved.

I don't get the angst over whether he will pull a Mason next season. IMO, it's unfair to expect he'll repeat his 2013 numbers. Not to shit on Mason, but Bobrovsky's reported work ethic and team-centered attitude suggests (to me, at least) that any drop off will be minimal.

I hope Mason matures into a starter. But I remember the stories about him reporting to camp, post-Calder.


Edit: get him signed

Bob can be streaky, and I don't know that you guys got to see that with the shortened season. I don't mean to take anything away from him -- when he's on his game, he's incredible to watch. His growth as a player is obvious, so his hot and cold stretches probably won't be nearly as dramatic as we saw in Philly. Just a head's up

I don't think the CBJ team defense gets nearly enough credit for Bobrovsky's season. That said, even early on he seemed like the type to easily shake off a bad goal - unlike Mason.



Edit: in short, I think the difference in play between Bobrovsky's peaks and valleys will be much less noticeable than with Mason

Probably. Bob's work ethic was a story from day one. That trade will go down as a huge gaffe in Flyers lore if they don't find a way to bring in a Bernier or someone to compete with Mason and they both work out or at least help in getting a Cup. Getting Mason at the deadline only made it more of a joke. I'm just hoping Mason isn't as hot of a mess as he was with you guys

RE: The Prospal situation.

“I want to come back,” Prospal said. “I want to be in Columbus. But I don’t know what’s going to happen. I’ve reached out to the club a couple of times, and they’ve told me they’ll let me know a couple of times, but I received nothing. I don’t know if that’s supposed to tell me something or what.” - See more at: http://bluejacketsxtra.dispatch.com/content/stories/2013/06/21/prospal-heads-home-as-talks-stall.html#sthash.Q0YdQN3R.dpuf


I'm more comfortable with not bringing Prospal back than most CBJ fans, but I'm somewhat pissed that they're jerking him around like this. Surprised as well, given the commitment by Davidson to doing things the right way.

I'm disappointed.

Vinny got screwed with the Howson promise, only to see a serious regime walk in. But he then backs it up by leading the team in scoring.

I'm still impressed by the fact that he was the first in eleven seasons to step forward - a month in - and call a turd a turd.

http://www.dispatch.com/content/stories/business/2013/06/22/cheap-gas-big-rush.html

Dan Hupp popped open the back of his truck and started unloading more than a dozen plastic gas cans at a United Dairy Farmers store in Clintonville, where gas dropped to $3.299 a gallon yesterday.

The people in cars behind him didn’t look pleased about the extra wait while he filled them up, but Hupp didn’t care. He wanted to stock up as much as possible.“Buy 100 gallons, it’ll last you a few weeks,” said Hupp, who’s concerned about another sudden spike in prices. Gasoline prices started dropping on Thursday evening at stations across the state, sparking long lines and long waits for bargain fill-ups

That reminds me of a woman I used to work with, several years ago. She spend half her day at work surfing the web checking gas prices across town. Fortunately for her, she was fired and so no longer needed to fill up to drive to a job.

I filled up Wednesday - couldn't tell you what I paid.

Gas lines? Surfing the web comparing prices? Hobo Hank and his cans? Good god - are people really that financially desperate, or is it just the thrill of the "bargain"?

It went down about 60 cents in 2 weeks. Not that it was ever expensive compared to out East.

I used to work with a woman who would spend half her day at the office surfing gas prices, so she could plot her errands around driving across town to save a few cents a gallon. Eventually got fired, and so didn't have to worry about all that extra driving.

Irrational exuberance aside, I don't recall ever being this jacked for a new season - and that includes the immediate post-expansion years. These fuckers are finally on to something, IMO - and the East is gonna pay the price.

I'm excited too. Sounds like this will be a pretty active off-season, with plenty of chances to improve (and screw up) the team.

Can't believe the draft is less than a week away.

From Arace's column, today:

Strange, isn’t it? The Jackets’ decade-plus tale of woe is marked by a checkered draft history. There is no need to go into detail, but the primary reason they have made the playoffs just once in 12 seasons is their inability to identify and develop talent. Now, suddenly, something has sneaked up on them.

This team was assembled, almost exclusively, during the six-year term of former GM Scott Howson. His trades look pretty good now. So does some of his drafting, which brings up another irony. Two years ago, Howson fired the longtime amateur scouting director, Don Boyd — and Boyd’s staff delivered Cam Atkinson, Jared Boll, Matt Calvert and Dalton Prout, each of whom was selected in the fourth round or later. Davidson knew he had a few bricks when he arrived in Columbus. He had more than he thought.


Good stuff!

I haven't been this excited for a new season to begin, so soon after the last ended, in years.

If he's seriously considering the KHL offer, there is nothing the CBJ could have done. I'd think $6M is at the limit the CBJ would consider, for two years. If that's the case, I'd rather they sit back and watch what RFA offers he receives - let him walk and take the picks.

He seems to have all the intangibles Mason didn't have - strong work ethic, mental toughness. And he's a good team guy. But IMO a good piece of his success last season was built on team defense.

I'm a bit underwhelmed, if only because all the build-up had the CBJ likely moving at least one of the picks for another NHL-ready "brick".

Yep. Thought Seguin might be a Blue Jacket today. Not so.

At least Bob is signed.

No. I'm expecting something around 5.5-6 million.

It'll only be 2 years so if he pulls a Mason, the team is only short-term fucked.

Apparently, it's just under 6 million.

Wow ... Tyler Wright leaving. Seems like odd timing.

Probably not good commentary on the draft when your chief scout is gone less than 24 hours after it ended.

I didn't necessarily mind seeing the old regime reward an original Jacket by giving him a position in the organization. But director of amateur scouting, after only three years (if that) as a developmental coach? I'd imagine a scouting pro's pro like JK saw through that fairly quickly. Face-saving move for Wright - allowing him to stay on through the draft, and then announce his resignation?

He probably had 0 to do with this draft class. kekekelainen probably ran this one.

You guys aren't qualifying York. Feel like he's played well enough to earn a contract, but I guess depth gives you that option. What do you guys think of him?
