Another point that should be made is also something that I noted at the BB&T arena Sat nite, and something that needs more press in Columbus. That is the pipeline, the young draftees that are in the minor/junior/college/European leagues developing for the Blue Jackets. On the Panthers Jumbotron they had a video featuring action clips of some Panther prospects. I’D LIKE TO SEE THE BLUE JACKETS DO THIS ALSO AS WELL AS FOX SPORTS.
The Union Blue does a great job of reporting prospects. Click the link to read the latest. But if you haven’t kept up, here are a couple of tid-bits. Springfield is in their cup playoffs for the 2nd straight year. A number of CBJ prospects have finished their seasons and are now playing for Springfield. Goaltender Anton Forsberg has 3 wins, Mark Dano from last year’s draft is playing and has 2 goals. TJ Tynan from Notre Dame just joined the team.
This year end type of experience is the experience that a guy by the name of Boone Jenner got last year after his Junior Team was eliminated. This year Boone made the jump…. Could that be in the cards for one of these players?
For once, people have talked very little about the Blue Jackets draft position, as the players have not gotten out the golf clubs and are still playing hockey. But no matter what the draft position is this year, the pipeline has some good young players . It’s a good bet, we will see some of them in the near future
