Large Blue Jackets Fan Dancing In Extreme Slow Motion Is Heavenly

Meet "Dancing Kevin." He's a Columbus Blue Jackets staple, and it seems he pulled out all the stops for Saturday's home opener against the Rangers, enlisting the help of a nearby bear to guzzle multiple cans of Labatt Blue and dance with everything God gave him. And God blessed Kevin with a bountiful harvest to share. » 10/13/14 10:00am 10/13/14 10:00am

Blue Jackets Not Fucking Around With Ryan Johansen Contract Negotiations

After a breakout 33-goal season, Blue Jackets center Ryan Johansen is seeking a bigger payday. But he and Columbus are far apart on just how big, and Johansen isn't planning to report to camp when it opens tomorrow. So the Blue Jackets just pulled something I don't know that I've ever seen a team do, at least not via… » 9/17/14 1:39pm 9/17/14 1:39pm

Why Sidney Crosby Got Booed In Pittsburgh

Let's mince no words here in saying that Sidney Crosby, the greatest active hockey player in the universe, is the reason that the Pittsburgh Penguins are not currently playing their home games in Kansas City. He is beloved in his adopted hometown, but when you're as good as he is, love only gets you so far. Ahead of… » 4/28/14 3:59pm 4/28/14 3:59pm

Columbus Blue Jackets Win First Ever Playoff Game In Double Overtime

How The Decision To Postpone Blue Jackets-Stars Was Made

When Rich Peverley collapsed, everyone—from the players who immediately summoned help, to the medical staff who treated him, to the officials who decided to postpone the game, to the league and in-arena personnel who kept fans informed—did their jobs perfectly and kept a scare from becoming a tragedy. » 3/11/14 9:14am 3/11/14 9:14am

Kari Lehtonen Made The Best Save Of This Young NHL Season

It shouldn't have come to this. Dallas's Kari Lehtonen should never have had to make this spinning, behind-the-back swipe that kept the Stars-Blue Jackets game scoreless. Even screened by Nick Foligno, Lehtonen will probably be the first to tell you he should have gloved the puck, or knocked it down, instead of… » 1/29/13 10:35am 1/29/13 10:35am

ESPN Finally Covered The NHL, Thanks To The Olympics

These are dark days for ESPN, with NBC stealing the nation's collective sports eyes and talent evacuating Bristol like a Chris Berman barbecue dinner. Desperate to reclaim public attention, the WWL is going after that untapped market of Columbus Blue Jackets fans, albeit in a strange way. By randomly popping up… » 7/31/12 9:00am 7/31/12 9:00am

Rick Nash Is A Ranger, But Columbus Fans Shouldn't Kill Themselves Over…

On trade deadline day, Columbus's demands for Rick Nash were reportedly Brandon Dubinsky, Chris Kreider, Ryan McDonagh OR Michael Del Zotto, Derek Stepan OR Carl Hagelin, and a first-round draft pick.

The Blue Jackets Turned Down The Islanders' Entire Draft For Their No.…

The Blue Jackets, despite the worst record in the NHL, missed out on the first overall pick (It was very sad) and can't miss winger Nail Yakupov. But there was a silver lining at No. 2: can't miss defenseman Ryan Murray. People love Ryan Murray, and think he might be NHL-ready now. If you're going to rebuild, you… » 6/25/12 12:35pm 6/25/12 12:35pm

Small Child Attempts To Fight Professional Hockey Player

The Chicago Blackhawks were in the middle of skating out the final 15 minutes of a 6-1 thumping of the Columbus Blue Jackets when one of the most absurd-looking fights ever broke out. You may have thought it was a child playfully climbing on an adult, but it was actually two professional hockey players fighting. Or,… » 2/18/12 4:40pm 2/18/12 4:40pm
