Columbus Blue Jackets Top Five Games of 2017-2018

The best five games the Columbus Blue Jackets played out of their 88 regular season and playoff games.

There were still plenty of exciting and […] Columbus Blue Jackets Top Five Games of 2017-2018 - Union and Blue - Union and Blue - A Columbus Blue Jackets Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Signing Jack Johnson would be a potential disaster for the Habs

Rumoured to be a potential target for Montreal, the Blue Jackets defender isn’t going to solve any of the Habs’ issues. It’s no secret that the Montreal Canadiens are in the market for a left-handed defenceman to play next to Shea Weber. Plenty of names have been thrown around, but in the latest edition of “31 Thoughts” by Elliotte Friedman, the Sportsnet analyst believes that Montreal is “a stealth destination” for the pending unrestricted free agent. Quite frankly, signing Johnson, who wants term and money on a contract, would be absolutely disastrous for the Canadiens....

2017-18 Player Review: Jack Johnson

2017-18 Player Review: Jack Johnson

The quintessential “bad analytics/good executive eye test” player, Jack Johnson found himself moving farther and farther out of the Columbus Blue Jackets’ plans in 2017-18. Johnson was so disturbed by his shrinking role that he asked for a trade mid-season, a move the club either would not or could not make. If you’re reading this blog, you probably have an opinion on Jack Johnson. Good news: We’ll be asking for that later. Johnson, as an unrestricted free agent, is probably done as a Blue Jacket. He played 77 games as he struggled to re-create last year’s magic with defensive...

NHL Free Agency: Should the Pens consider Jack Johnson?

NHL Free Agency: Should the Pens consider Jack Johnson?

It’s as simple as something that nobody knows, Pittsburgh’s defensive depth needs a boost. Heading into the off-season, the Penguins don’t have a ton of extra money to play around with adding free agents but they still will be looking to add improvements in talent and depth to their defense. One name heading to the free agency pool is at least an intriguing one, and the Pens are nothing if not an intriguing team. Should they consider adding defenseman Jack Johnson? To make the financials work, they’ll likely have to trade Matt Hunwick. How possible that may be remains to be seen,...

2017-18 Columbus Blue Jackets Player Review: Ian Cole

2017-18 Columbus Blue Jackets Player Review: Ian Cole

Cole came over at the trade deadline and quickly became a fan favorite for his beard and for stabilizing the blue line as the Blue Jackets made a playoff push. Ian Cole was a late addition to the Blue Jackets this season, coming to the team on trade deadline day from the Pittsburgh Penguins via the Ottawa Senators for a third round draft pick. Upon his arrival, Cole immediately supplanted Jack Johnson in the lineup and took his spot on the second pairing next to David Savard. Cole logged heavy minutes for the Blue Jackets, playing on the penalty kill and solidifying the bottom two pairing...

Why the Columbus Blue Jackets Shouldn’t Resign Ian Cole

The Columbus Blue Jackets should look within for blue line help. Ian Cole is one of three unrestricted free agents on the blue line that the Columbus Blue Jackets stand to lose this offseason. Two of them, Jack Johnson and Talyor Chorney likely already have their bags packed. Cole, however, played very well with David […] Why the Columbus Blue Jackets Shouldn’t Resign Ian Cole - Union and Blue - Union and Blue - A Columbus Blue Jackets Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More
