  1. Last season, I actually did enjoyed reading about teams I am not necessarily watch playing, good overall trolling and what not added to some entertainment, but this year, it has been pretty quiet, So I figured I write about Blue Jackets as not many here actually know who they are or care about them one way or another. Obviously, some of you might go and say "I thought so" about the Artemi Panarin performance this far. After all 2 measly goals, bad timing penalty at Rangers a couple of days ago, going too fancy and too flat in his second shootout attempt against Lightning. All and all, looks like a "blockbuster deal" gone bust. And I would have thought that way as well if I did not watch the actual games. I tell you, this guy is pretty awesome and (imo) is the most skillful puck handler on the team and probably in the top 5 in the league. He got 10 assists so far on the paper, but I would give him an automatic assist for every game he plays. When he touches the puck, it is pretty common that a chaos breaks out and you can feel an intensity on the ice rising. It is quite a phenomenal to me that Jackets could not capitalize on more of his possessions that 12 times (probably 15-16 if you really count). His has been very difficult to stop from getting the puck at the boards, and his passes most of the time go exactly where he wanted them to go. Some chemistry problems are still there for sure, some lack of trust in him by the rest of the team is slowly goes away, but is still there. I have counted at least 4 or 5 excellent plays that he has put together that went flat for the lack of trust that he will pull them off. Easily a dozen of times he has pushed the puck through the low slot and there was nobody there (pretty typical of Jackets unfortunately) . Not only he leads the league in takeaways, he also has the one of the lowest giveaways which makes him a leader in turnover differential 21-to-5. I am not going to talk about some sneaky pocking and prodding, but he probably leads the league in the number of undetected dirty contacts, which is while a lot of fun for me to watch, it must be very upsetting to the fans of the team where he perpetrates against. Another thing that I see, is that he is much more involved in D with jackets than with Hawks. We might see him on PK towards the end of the season, because thieving bastards like that could be very helpful. On the team overall, I love Seth Jones and Zack Werensky games, they are back where they left off, playing the rover parts - very exciting to watch. Josh Anderson is very outstanding and probably will be looking at his best season this year. Bob will be fine I think, he is slow to get going, but is doing pretty good giving the high risk defense that he has to rely on. Korpy is looking sharper this season than last. Jackets rookies are pretty exceptional, especially Dubois. Obviously Atkinson and Bjorkstrand are going to be in the spot light. Both are no longer far wings, they are now, getting down and dirty and loving it. I am pretty excited to see how they do in December.
