Blue Jackets Shooting For Playoffs

from the Columbus Dispatch,

Hitchcock has never missed the Stanley Cup playoffs when he has spent the entire season behind the bench.

“I take a lot of pride in that,” he said.

“There’s nobody talking about our team who is picking us in the top 12 of the conference,” Hitchcock said. “There’s nobody. What they’re missing is that this is a very competitive group of players. I can see it. I know it’s there. But you can’t measure it until we start the competition.”

“I start every season assuming we’re going to make the playoffs,” Hitchcock said. “We’ve got a lot of work to do. But we’ve come a long, long way in a pretty short amount of time.

“That’s all I’m going to say.”
