  1. CBJ has started the season off better then expected. The team has continued to rally around the teams rookie duo of Lucas Raymond and Dawson Mercer who seem to have jump started the Jackets franchise. Pavel Buchnevich the team's trade deadline addition just has returned from his 2 game suspension and is poised to take on a bigger leadership role in the absence of long time Blue Jackets Pierre-Luc Dubois who was traded just a few weeks earlier. Dubois appears to be thriving with his new franchise the STL Blues where he has 7 points in 6 games thus far. The Jackets appear to be waiting for operation room for Jack Eichel to be treated. Apparently there aren't any available in the local area lol. The Jackets Calder winner Kirill Kaprizov is off to a bit of a slow start but the coaching staff remains confident he will find his grove soon enough. The team is hopeful it can remain in its current playoff position and hope reinforcements soon come. Jonathan Bernier is expected back later this week. Mackenzie Blackwood has started skating this week on his own. Nikolai Knyzhov is expected to miss 2-3 months after recovering from a lower body surgery. The team is rather light on defence but are actively trying to fill its backend with another NHL body. The team's GM remains hopeful of the team's season but the team will need to weather the storm until their injuries clear up. Relying so heavily on their rookies may also be their detriment. The team will need players to take a step to keep this team in a playoff position. Andrew Mangiapane appears to be doing just that, the winger now has 7 goals in 6 games tying him for first in NHL goal scoring with Alex Ovechkin and former Jacket Elias Lindholm. The season is still young but the fan base has a quiet optimism as they hope the team can whether the storm until the teams newest addition Jack Eichel can return on the mend. He is expected to have surgery in the coming weeks which may potentially make him available for the final few weeks of the regular season. Management isn't expecting he will return to form immediately but he could be a helpful piece down the stretch if the team is battling for a playoff spot. Jacket's newest free agent addition Brandon Duhaime has 3 points in 3 games since signing with the club. He is quickly become an instrumental player in the teams bottom six!

  3. STL Blues Puck League Prospect Pool! Stat Tracker! Bored, stuck at home. Why not.
  4. HIRING: The Tampa Bay Lightning have hired @Tylez as their new General Manager. Welcome to the league!
  5. A CBJ prospect report! Showcasing the kids in our system.
  6. [NJD] Rush17 — Today at 2:09 PM Cam Atkinson OTB. (4 goals and 1 assist in 4 games. Guy is on ) [NJD] Rush17 — Today at 2:23 PM Happy to eat a 1 year high cap hit cap dump for a small fee. [2:23 PM] Very small fee.
  7. NJ places claim on defenseman Joel Hanley. Will make a ir placement if claim is successful.
  8. Im guessing he was given the press box to help him reset and have the opportunity to see some nhl games from the press box. Those might be the first 2 nhl games he's ever seen live as a spectator. If podz isn't in our home opener i will be very upset. He might also be a bit off being away from his wife and translator. They have 2 days off before the next game. Vs kaprizov the great young rookie of last year and the wild. That should excite podz when he suits up on top of it being a home opener. Kaprizov was the leading scorer in the KHL for years before coming over. So he definitely will be of interest and no doubt kaprizov is aware of podz after being drafted high and captaining Russia's u20 team. I hope they both get yo have a brief chat on the ice at some point.
  9. This Canucks bottom 6 is very bland. It needs an injection of Podkolzin. He at least has a high end caliber shot.. Hogz is working his butt off but we need to mix up the bottom 6, it is completely devoid of any or regular real offence.
  10. They can have the Dunn goal. We are going to destroy their championship aspirations in any near future lol.
  11. Assign to nhl roster please @canuck2xtreme
  12. His replies to league officials since the decision have made that impossible. It's done. Every GM has issues signing UFA's at one point or another. You just deal with it. Solve issues via trade if required or don't keep pending UFA's around to expire.
  13. You said you were done and trashed on the league multiple times. You asked us not to @ you which we haven't. If you are done now, let it go.
  14. Ok. Lets call up Nick and keep Jack in the regular que until I can find a suitable replacement.
  15. Congrats to Jesperi on his highly anticipated first GML point since joining the Jackets last TDL! It has been a wait but one well worth the wait! GJ kid! Lets build off that point and make it a career year.
  16. Tampa had decent depth. You just choose to spend it to load up. It is what it is. Unfortunate to see you go and wish you well.
  17. he will add the rivalry. teach them seattle fans nux history! i'm all for it! might even tune in to some seattle action. This is for radio not tv correct?
  18. When healthy we have 15 active forwards. I've done my best to fill out a 23 man roster with all NHL talent. Unfortunately injuries have tested our depth.
