YOUR 2013 Columbus Blue Jackets

If the Cavs and the Indians can make it the the Finals ... nah, probably not.

Exactly what I am saying. Making Wright director of amateur scouting felt like old-school CBJ management. A blurb today from the local rag said that Wright had been offered a "different position" within the organization, and that he had decided to turn it down - which sounds (to me) like Kekalainen and Davidson correcting a mistake.

Holy shit ... rumor is that the "NHL team/city" Horton visited today was Columbus. Hope it's true. I've got a feeling JD and JK lend this bunch enough credibility to swing most deals they want.

It's cool that he's visiting us, and you've gotta love a good old Canadian boy (apparently) outright rejecting Canada but I'm not sure I really want Horton.

I'm not convinced either way on Horton, but I think he's a much better fit for where the CBJ seem to be headed than Seguin, Ribiero or Filppula

Horton as a CBJ has grown on me (and it sounds like it's almost a sure thing)

But apparently he's going to be out until December with that shoulder injury. Don't like that at all.

CRB, you've been eating the same shit as I have, over the past thirteen years. I'm thinking these guys are going kick ass and take names, come October. And when Horton is ready to go come December, shit gets real.

Perhaps I'm assuming too much, but I don't see how the CBJ don't bring Prospal back with Horton out half the season.

We've certainly eaten a lot of shit over the years. Which is why I'm sure we'll continue to eat shit when Horton doesn't come back till after the olympics, Gaborik proves last year wasn't a fluke, and Bobrovsky pulls a Mason. :busky:

I don't see how they can bring him back.

2.7 million in cap space. He made 2.5 million last year. So he'd have to take a discount. Is he willing to play for 1.5 million? Seems like a terrible idea to enter the season with less than a million in cap space remaining. You probably want room a little room for potential trades/callups.

I get that CBJ fans love him, but jesus christ, the hardon for him is scary. People on twitter seem ready to burn down NWA over this.

Yeah - I think he'd sign for less.

I'm looking at a team heading into the season starved for offense and without their top scorer from last year. Hate to say it, but if they start slow they could be buried by the time Horton is back.

Jenner may or may not be ready. But Prospal is proven.

On a side note, I've done my fair share of complaining about ownership post-Mr. McConnell. But damn - the CBJ are spending to the cap again, committed to icing a winner. Got to respect that ...

John Davidson watched four hockey reporters discuss various free agent signings on Canada’s TSN network on Friday. The Blue Jackets’ signing of Boston Bruins’ free agent forward Nathan Horton came up and the Jackets’ president of hockey operations blew a gasket.

“They asked about the good ones and the bad ones, and ( Toronto Sun columnist) Steve Simmons says ‘my bad one is Horton,’ ” Davidson said. “He says, ‘I don’t know why, it’s like going from the city to the woods.’ And the other guy who I don’t know says, ‘Yeah, it’s like going to Green Acres.’ Now is that ignorance or what? That’s just ignorance. I think it shows ignorance of what a great city this is. This is a good city. And it (ticks) me off.

“You can say things about me. You can say things about the players on the team if we’ve not playing well, but when you come after the city, I’m not going to stand for it. I’ll come back at you like a freight train.”


Good stuff from JD ...

JD probably has his place on the upper east side he lives in 90% of the year. No good reason to live in the middle of Ohio unless you are a golfer. Just trying to score points with the locals at the tattoo parlors.

Did you read the whole piece? I don't think Davidson is kidding around - he'll kick your ass.

Especially when he finds out you're from Jersey ...

We'll sway him with our beaches. And if those don't work, we'll take one of the needles from them and give him a good stab

We've needed a teenage heartthrob ever since Filatov got traded. So he fills that role.

Blake Geoffiron retires, to scout for the CBJ - I wonder how that came about. Scary deal though, watching that hit.

http://www.dispatch.com/content/stories/public/2013/08/07/carrier-suspected-of-stealing-mail.html

The U.S. Postal Service is trying to deliver 13,000 pieces of mail that investigators found during a search of a Columbus postal carrier’s home last week.

Investigators think the mail, most of it unopened, was supposed to be delivered along two routes in the 43202 ZIP code in southern Clintonville and the northern University District within the past year or so.

It was found at the home of postal carrier Charles E. Moore, 54, of 1926 Sale Rd. in Clinton Township. Moore had been assigned to both routes within the past year, court records show.

A federal search warrant says that special agents from the Postal Service’s inspector general’s office searched Moore’s house, car and garage on July 31 after customers had reported that DVDs of movies had not arrived as expected between April 2012 and March.

Special Agent Scott Balfour said that he could not confirm Moore’s name because he hasn’t been charged with a crime. But he said Moore has worked for the Postal Service off and on in various positions since 2006.

Balfour said the Postal Service is hoping to get mail found during the search to customers within the next few days. He said 1,500 pieces were first-class and the rest was standard-rate mail, which includes business mail and magazines.

The search-warrant inventory shows that agents found postal bins in Moore’s home on top of his freezer, in closets, in a bedroom and in the basement. Postal bins and garbage bags containing mail also were found along a wall outside the house. Agents confiscated two rifles and a box of ammunition.

Balfour said Moore has been suspended pending the outcome of the investigation.

“There’s no indication he was stealing any items from the mail,” Balfour said. “I think he was simply not delivering it.”

Public records show that Moore’s home, which he has owned since 2000, is in the foreclosure process. He filed for bankruptcy last year.

The streets on the routes involved are 4th, Clinton, Summit, Olentangy, E. Blake and Calumet. The avenues are Adams, Chilcote, Deming, Glenmawr, Indiana, Indianola, E. Maynard, Medary, E. Oakland, E. Patterson, Wyandotte, East and Findley.

The routes also included Pomeroy Place, Kensington Place, Parkview Drive and Kelso and Crestview roads.
