Columbus Blue Jackets 2021 Season

PLD signs for 2 years at $10M total.  Good for him. 

PLD, Jones, and Z are all up for new contracts at the same time though.  So.... that will be an angst-y off season.

    I have NO IDEA where these "trade demand/request" rumors came from, then he signs like an hour later, and now Porty and Pierre LeBrun are like "but is the relationship over". I mean, we're really hopping all over the Office Space Jump To Conclusions board here.

    He's not going anywhere because he can't and if he wanted to go somewhere else, he would've signed an offer sheet. It's done. He's our 1C and we'll do the RFA thing again in 2 years.

    oh, Porty is garbage and likes to report rumors that he creates.  Ever since the Dubinsky 'potentially career ending substance abuse' item that he didn't even bother apologizing for. 

    The only thing about 2 years from now is that Jarmo has shown himself to be not great at negotiating with those on the cusp of big deals.  He plays hardball when he doesn't have to.  Jones, Z, PLD, and Elvis will be up for new deals in 2 years (Korpi should be traded by then).  If he keeps 2 of the 4, that's par.  I'd be happy if he kept 3, but I wouldn't be shocked if he trades two. 
  • elpalitoelpalito Wealthy Alum
    Also forgot that Domi is only on 2 years left.   Jarmo may be active at the trade deadline next year!

    New deal for Bjorkstrand.  5 years sounds good -- he and PLD are the only consistent offensive threats on the team, though hopefully Domi can add to that.

    Love it. I'm also not concerned about PLD. First time he's ever been courted and it probably messed with him a bit. He'll be ready to hoist the Cup.
  • elpalitoelpalito Wealthy Alum
    I'm not posting in the cannon anymore, but it's fun to see how quickly some label PLD a 'malcontent'. 
  • elpalitoelpalito Wealthy Alum
    Torts isn't big on the taking the high road, eh?  Silly. 

    I need to win mega millions so I can buy the team.

    Because he said that he doesn't know why PLD wants out? No one does.

    Not the quote I read.  So perhaps I should reconsider my sources. 

    I still want to win the lottery and buy the team.

    It's just one game, but Anderson looked like Anderson against the Leafs.  I'm sure Domi will be fine -- but I really enjoyed watching Anderson play.

    He should've scored more than one goal last year then!

    Nice shitty start.
  • elpalitoelpalito Wealthy Alum
    Maybe it was just Game 1 lethargy..if that's a thing. 
  • The_SackmanThe_Sackman Wealthy Alum
    Maybe two games with Detroit changes my attitude but I'm starting to get 2015 feelings and I don't care for those.
  • elpalitoelpalito Wealthy Alum
    It's probably all PLD and covid's fault.
  • The_SackmanThe_Sackman Wealthy Alum
    National TV noon game with the Red Wings today...OH LA DEE DAH!

    I will remind them that they are little brother and Fred S is forever a loser (also Johnny Mac is our b-word) even though this team is inspiring zero confidence right now.

    What was your record for most losses to start a season a few years ago? Eight?
  • elpalitoelpalito Wealthy Alum
    after 8 is when Richards was fired.  Don't recall if Torts won his first game after that or not. 


    Between the offseason moves and the start of this year, I don't get the sense that this franchise has a concrete direction it wants to go in.

    Since March 17, 2011, the Jackets are 22-4-2 versus Detroit and 12-1-0 since 2016-17.

    Ah, yes, the glory years for the BJs.

    You sound like a Miami Football fan talking to a UC--shit. That hurts on many levels.

    Korpisalo has more points than Atkinson.  lol
  • elpalitoelpalito Wealthy Alum
    Well, good to see Texier has his scoring touch.  Still waiting for Atkinson to come out of quarantine, I guess.

    I know Torts won't back down from a pissing match with anyone but... it is usually easier to win games when you play your best center. 
  • elpalitoelpalito Wealthy Alum
    That comment was before I saw his last shift.   Whew.  Jarmo needs to pull the trigger on one of the 'good offers' some teams have already made.

    Yep he's got to go immediately. Fuck PLD. That was some bullshit that puts him at the same level of human garbage as Jeff Carter and Adam Foote.

    Roslovic and Laine? Seems like a steal for the BJs.
