this team is going to be very good in a few years!
if Columbus can sign 1 or2 high end d men and another star to play with Nash (possibly Heatley) and get them to buy into Hitchcock's Defense first unselfish style of play, and get rid of a few dead weight players such as Peca, Rome, Dorsett (already got rid of Fedorov ) and they are set. I only wish we had waited until the Heatley trade demand had come around to give them Leclaire (top goalie in the league 07-08 completely forgotten at the drop of a hat)
Also i know Dorsett is a fan favorite because he fights a lot but he does so at inopportune times and usually ends up blocking all punches with his face. haha Jodi shelly at least won most of the time. Rome is actually gone now but if you question why simply watch game 4 of the playoffs when he passed the puck through the slot not once but twice both times resulting in goals. (Hossa, Datsyuk) and peca is just old and doesnt seem to care anymore.

Such an empty forum. Maybe a relocation is possible.

Emptiest forum I've seen, try to post things sometimes but never get replies in here. Hopefully no relocation.
If the Blue Jackets don't win the lottery, I'll be pissed!!!
More people, please.
2013 where do the Jackets go from here? With 3 first round picks in the 2013 Draft what should the Jackets do with those picks?
With the way the Jackets have played over the past 3 weeks they have a shot at the playoffs, having said that the chances are slim that they get a high draft pick (top 3)! Assume they pick #6, #13 (NYR) and #24 (LAK) Would you advise the Jackets to say trade 2 of those first round picks to secure the n#1 overall pick in this draft?
I like using all the picks but I havent kept on the draft to much this year. The way the team is heading though, I think if they keep building and adding youth they could only get better from here. Or maybe trade 2 of those pics for a more established player if possible.
