Off Season is Slow

With the Blue Jackets out of the playoffs it’s hard to blog when…well there’s not a lot to say and it’s quite boring.

Talks with Manny Malhotra are underway, Howson has made Manny the priority UFA for the Jackets…personally I was thinking Williams first, but again, I’m not the general manager of this hockey club.

Malhotra has been with the Jackets since the 2003-2004 season.  He’s a leader on the team and he and his family are comfortable here.  Aaron Portzline thinks it will be a three-year deal at about $5 million…but again, you never know with these contracts.

Malhotra on IR & Predictions

Center Manny Malhotra has been put on injured reserve.  He will not be playing tomorrow night in Dallas, Derek Dorsett is heading to Dallas with the team.  Not exactly the way we want to start the season, but what can you do?

The season opens tonight for the NHL in North America, the Jackets however don’t play until tomorrow. There are so many questions that come with this season.  Not just with the Blue Jackets, but with all the teams.  The Dispatch has an excellent preview up for the season not just for the Jackets, but for the entire league. 

The Jackets are such a crazy team, it’s hard to preview them.  You never know what to expect, and usually the thing you think is least likely to happen, does.  Here are some of my predictions for the season for the Jackets.
