Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Paul Grant of ESPN,
Short-season mojo: Bobrovsky stood tall against the barrage long enough that he outlasted a lame-duck GM (who brought him in, but, still) who was replaced by a forward-thinker who put some decent players on the ice. All told in 38 games, Bobrovsky finished second in the NHL with a .932 save percentage and fifth with a 2.00 goals-against average. He went 21-11-6 and won the Vezina Trophy. Not a bad rebound, huh? The Blue Jackets narrowly missed the playoffs, but Bobrovsky established himself as a stopper to be reckoned with.
Why it will be tough to repeat: Or did he? We're turning it up a notch here, people, in 2013-14. Ready? Here goes: the Blue Jackets are now in the Metrosexual or something Division, which includes the Flyers (whoops!), Penguins and Capitals, the latter two teams that have a tad more offense than the Nashville Predators.
