On Dubi, the punch, and Captaincy

Last night fellow CBJ blogger Lindsay “@zinzwCBJ” Wilson wrote a post raising the idea that the sucker punch Brandon Dubinsky threw on Anton Volchenkov in the game against the Devils was evidence of his being unfit to wear the captain’s C for the Blue Jackets. From the post: In my opinion, this was a stupid thing …

#OffTopic – #CBJ Fan NFL Survival and Pick’Em Leagues

I’m putting this here so I have a place people can go to get all the details in one place. If you’re interested in joining either the #CBJ Fan Survival (pick one winner each week, can’t pick the same team twice, lose once and you’re done) or Pick’Em (pick the winners of every game every …

Quick Looks: #CBJ players on entry level contracts and their remaining waiver exemption status

Last week I sent out a few tweets on the remaining waiver exemption status of three of our players on entry level contracts. I wanted to expand on that list a little more and explain how the waiver exemption works. Through a couple Google searches I was able to find this blog post from “McSorleys …

2013 NHL Entry Draft – #CBJ first round options

As is tradition here at HashtagCBJ, instead of actually working on my own mock draft I decided to take the work other people did and compile it into one list and call it crowd sourcing! Really, though, I don’t have nearly enough free time to look at all the available prospects and try to decide …

Did Henrik Sedin intentionally spear Sergei Bobrovsky in the eye?

With less than a minute remaining in the game against the Canucks on Tuesday, Henrik Sedin was camped out in front of Sergei Bobrovsky waiting for a pass/rebound. As the Jackets gained possession of the puck and looked to move it out of the zone, Sedin managed to get his stick up and into/through the …

#CBJ Fan Survey – Mid-season edition – The Results!

I finally closed the latest #CBJ Fan Survey survey today and found the results to be very interesting. This was the first survey I’ve done that took place during the season and while games were ongoing. It was pretty neat to see how the results changed as the Jackets won back to back games versus …

“Tempered” excitement… have we seen this before?

The Blue Jackets are 5-0-2 in their last 7 games and have as many points (12) as they did in the previous 19 games combined… Remember when Jackets, teetering on the brink of playoff contention elimination, rode on the backs of strong goaltending and opportunistic play by guys like Matt Calvert? When they increased their …
