2014-15 Blue Jackets ready for another NHL Playoff run with yet another young team

The Columbus Blue Jackets have come a long way from the days of depending on superstar Rick Nash to carry them.

The past two seasons without Nash, the team has posted winning records of 24-17-7 for 55 points in the lockout-shortened 2012-13 season where Blue Jackets just missed the playoffs via a tiebreaker against the Minnesota Wild, who had more non-shootout wins.  To 43-32-7 for 93 points and the playoffs in 2013-14.

The team has relied on several players to lead them to their winning ways: G Sergei Bobrovsky, F Artem Anisimov, F Cam Atkinson, F Matt Calvert, F Brandon Dubinsky, F Nick Foligno, F Boone Jenner, F Ryan Johansen and F Mark Letestu. On defense, the leaders include Jack Johnson, Ryan Murray, Dalton Prout, David Savard, Fedor Tyutin and James Wisniewski. So the days of relying on one superstar player is done and over with.

However, on the eve of training camp last week, the team was told by Johansen and his agent that they did not like the contract offers that were extended by the Blue Jackets. The Jackets have offered Johansen more money than what other top players are getting at his position.

The Blue Jackets organization is loaded with young talent. This year’s team may see some younger players added to the roster.

The winning ways started to happen when the CBJ signed  John Davidson and Jarmo Kekalainen who both had worked for the arch-rival St. Louis Blues to run the Hockey Operations as President and GM respectively.

Both Davidson and Kekalainen talked about the upcoming season of Blue Jackets hockey.

Columbus Blue Jackets off-season moves paying off early

The Columbus Blue Jackets made some significant changes to the overall look of the club during the 2012 offseason.

John Davidson left the Central Division rival St. Louis Blues to become the new President of Hockey Operations. Todd Richards had the “interim” tag dropped and is now the head coach.

Richards has added two new members to his coaching staff, Associate Coach Craig Hartsburg and Assistant Coach Keith Acton.

The franchise has added 5 new players in forwards Artem Ansimov, Brandon Dubinsky and Nick Foligno; defenseman Adrian Aucoin and goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky.

The team is off to a 1-0-1 start with 3 points against Division rivals Nashville and Detroit using a fast-paced offense with in-your-face gritty defense.
