Jackets season preview

Some words from GM
We are heading in to a new season and the Columbus Blue Jackets management is as optimistic as usual. We are not satisfied with last season but we still think that the way we ended the season is something to build on. We will start this season with the same tactics as we used at the end of last season and see how far that brings us. The team looks interesting on paper and has potential to be a playoff joker.
