NHL | Blue Jackets look for trades, not free agents

adcelannotate = {"mobilepaywallcategory" : "MOBILE_PREM-BLUE_NEWS","nativepaywallcategory" : "NATIVE_PREM-BLUE_NEWS"};The Blue Jackets returned home from the weekend draft in Buffalo, New York, with no upgrades for next season’s roster and no relief for their salary-cap woes. Don’t expect the Blue Jackets to make a big splash when free agency dawns on Friday, either. Or even a little splash.

Ohio State football | Freshman lineman Michael Jordan making name for himself

adcelannotate = {"mobilepaywallcategory" : "MOBILE_FREE","nativepaywallcategory" : "NATIVE_FREE"};When Ohio State sends a starting five out for the opener this season, Michael Jordan could be in the lineup. Except the starting five in question is the offensive line for Urban Meyer, not Thad Matta’s basketball team. Jordan is a 6-foot-7, 310-pound freshman guard from Canton (Plymouth), Michigan. He enrolled early, rose to run with the first team in spring drills, and though no one is promising he’ll be a starter right out of the gate, “Michael Jordan will play for us this year,” Meyer...

NHL draft | Trade gives Rychel his wish to leave Blue Jackets

adcelannotate = {"mobilepaywallcategory" : "MOBILE_PREM-BLUE_NEWS","nativepaywallcategory" : "NATIVE_PREM-BLUE_NEWS"};BUFFALO, N.Y. — The frayed relationship between the Blue Jackets and once-top prospect Kerby Rychel had seemed destined to reach this point for more than a year. But it wasn’t until the moments after an underwhelming draft for the Jackets, in the relative quiet of the First Niagara Center, that the biggest news of the Blue Jackets’ weekend went down. The Blue Jackets sent Rychel, the 19th overall pick in the 2013 draft, to the Toronto Maple Leafs for 23-year-old...

Michael Arace commentary | Blue Jackets’ Jarmo Kekalainen gambles by standing pat

adcelannotate = {"mobilepaywallcategory" : "MOBILE_PREM-BLUE_NEWS","nativepaywallcategory" : "NATIVE_PREM-BLUE_NEWS"};BUFFALO, N.Y. — Doug MacLean could not get the Blue Jackets off the starting line. Scott Howson pushed it forward and then stalled. Enter Jarmo Kekalainen, the team’s third general manager in 16 years, who was billed as a workaholic with a keen eye for talent. Surely he would drive the franchise to a level above abject mediocrity. Given the Jackets’ history, even commendable mediocrity would be an improvement.

Blue Jackets notebook | Meteor blast seared in memory of Russian draft pick

adcelannotate = {"mobilepaywallcategory" : "MOBILE_PREM-BLUE_NEWS","nativepaywallcategory" : "NATIVE_PREM-BLUE_NEWS"};BUFFALO, N.Y. — Vitaly Abramov will never forget all the broken glass and the sense of panic that gripped his school. The affable Russian winger knows how fortunate he was that the giant fireball that streaked across the morning sky on Feb, 15, 2013, didn’t enter Earth’s atmosphere on a slightly different trajectory.

Blue Jackets | Draft pick signals team taking long view

adcelannotate = {"mobilepaywallcategory" : "MOBILE_PREM-BLUE_NEWS","nativepaywallcategory" : "NATIVE_PREM-BLUE_NEWS"};BUFFALO, N.Y. — If the Blue Jackets drafted their top-line center of the future Friday night, the organization based its evaluation on a small sample size. Pierre-Luc Dubois, a surprise selection at No. 3 overall in the NHL draft, didn’t make the conversion from winger until midway through last season — and only after a Cape Breton teammate left to play in the World Junior Championships.

No, they gave it a weird tweak, like when your little brother wets his finger and sticks it in your ear. It was a Wet Willy Friday night.
