CBJ ships Pahlsson to Vancouver for pair of fourth-round picks

 

 

Several media reports from Nationwide Arena on Monday afternoon said that when the Blue Jackets told Sammy Pahlsson that he had been traded to a contending team, the Vancouver Canucks, he was very disappointed with the move. Several weeks ago when his name starting coming up in rumors about trades, he said he didn’t want to leave Columbus.

Pahlsson’s numbers this season are 61 games, 2 goals, 9 assists, 11 points and a minus-6 rating.

Pahlsson, a checking-line center, will be a member of the Canucks. Columbus will receive two fourth-round picks in the 2012 NHL entry draft.

Some fans and media probably look at fourth-round picks as nothing, but in looking at the Blue Jackets NHL and AHL rosters, they’ve had success in that round with Jared Boll, Maksim Mayorov and David Savard. So there is talent to be found in that round. The scouts have to find those players.

Capitals stun Blue Jackets with four, 3rd period goals; wins 4-2

COLUMBUS, OHIO — If the NHL had a rule where the teams could play only two periods instead of three, the Columbus Blue Jackets would be one of the top teams in the league. They usually out-play teams for the first 40 minutes most of the time.

But the 3rd period is the enemy of the Blue Jackets and it reared its ugly noose around the teams neck again on New Year’s Eve night.

The Jackets leading and dominating the game for 2 periods, saw their 2-0 advantage slip away as Washington scored four goals in a span of 6:40 overall and tying and go-ahead goal in a span of :28 seconds in a 4-2 loss.

Heartbreaking, late game collapses have slowed the Jackets all year long and has fans and media wondering when changes will be made to the coaching staff. Columbus has been outscored 52-26 in the 3rd period this season.

Alex Ovechkin, the star of the Capitals scored the first and last goals in the four-goal period.

A few weeks ago, there was talk around the NHL that Ovechkin was losing his game because he only scored eight goals in the Capitals first 29 games. But he has rebounded to post seven goals in the last eight games, including a six-game points stretch of six goals and three assists.

Winning and scoring late in games is nothing new to Washington, always a Stanley Cup contender. The Capitals have scored 12 third period goals in their past six games. They’ve scored 46 goals overall in the final period this year, one of the best in the National Hockey League.

The disappointed crowd of 18,199 at Nationwide Arena did witness some positive play by the Jackets as they received goals from rookie John Moore and Sammy Pahlsson.

The three stars were: Alex Ovechkin and Dennis Wideman from Washington. Sammy Pahlsson was the Blue Jackets selection.

Columbus head coach Scott Arniel, obviously hearing and feeling the heat from fans and media, walked out of  his post-game press conference after answering only six questions. He was irritated when two reporters pointed out that the team is getting hammered on 4-on-4 play. Arniel said the stats were even, but another reporter said the Jackets are getting outscored 8-1 in 4-on-4 hockey. Then the beleaguered coach walked out of the room.
