Episode 14: Catching Up During The Holiday Break

After missing three weeks, Rob and Sam are back. They don't do too much recapping. They get right into it and talk about the past week. The team had a typical week. They won the games they were supposed to and lost the game that was a bit more of a challenge. Are the expectations for the Blue Jackets too high? Kyle comes on for more Morrison's Minutes. He talks Pierre-Luc Dubois and presents around the holidays. Candle nation, stand up!


Episode 13: Reaching A Breaking Point

Rob and Sam are back again. This time they record the podcast from the comfort of their own homes. Kyle also checks in with Morrison Minutes during the second segment. The Blue Jackets weren't themselves once again. It caused coaching changes to take place and more questions than they have answers for at the moment. Do the Blue Jackets know what currently ails them or are they flailing about aimlessly trying to figure it out?


Episode 12: Battling For Perception

Episode 11: Everything I Told You Is True

Episode 9: Grandview And Short North

The Columbus Blue Jackets are first overall in the Metropolitan division. It is early in the season but it isn't anything to scoff at especially after their rocky start. Sergei Bobrovsky seems to have found his way and the offense is beginning to perform on a consistent night in and night out basis. The team is playing straightforward and it lends itself to their physical players. Rob and Sam discuss just how that affects the team and what it means for perimeter players as well. They also...


Episode 8: You Sure About That?

California dreaming? It felt that way for a long time when the Columbus Blue Jackets made their way out to the West Coast for their annual road trip. They went a perfect 1-1-1 during the trip but why does it feel so disappointing? The Blue Jackets have invisible players like Alexander Wennberg and Oliver Bjrokstrand, how do you get them going? Sergei Bobrovsky is back in the starters net and it is tough to determine just how long he will occupy that spot. The Metropolitan games in the...


Episode 7: Bobby Mixer!

The Columbus Blue Jackets are who we thought they were? The team has had a solid start but it is nowhere near the level they had hoped to be at this point of the season. Goaltender Joonas Korpisalo has taken over the starters net, Forward Artemi Panarin continues to score goal after goal and yet, the consistency just isn't there. Luckily, as a chaser, we get to talk about the team's Halloween party and which costumes we enjoyed the most.

Episode 5: Finding Consistency with The Blue Jackets

Three games last week and the Columbus Blue Jackets won two of them. Why does it feel like such a disappointment then?

We also take on the rumors around Josh Anderson, the white-hot Toronto Maple Leafs, the healthy scratched Brandon Saad and the...
