Jackets’ Success

Posted in Hockey Thoughts with tags , , , , , on March 29, 2010 by davepoleck

The Columbus Blue Jackets have now played 18 games since the firing of head coach Ken Hitchcock, with the record of 9-5-4 over that span. Put that over an entire season and it looks like this: 41-23-18 for a grand total of 100 points. Obviously that actual point total without Hitch behind the bench is unlikely, but it just goes to show you that the team is definitely playing better and many players are flourishing without his stranglehold on the team.

Jakub Voracek: 18 games; 8g, 13a for 21 points

Antoine Vermette: 18 games; 7g, 12a for 19 points

RJ Umberger: 18 games; 3g, 11a for 14 points

Kristian Huselius: 15 games; 7g, 10a for 17 points

I hope these numbers give some encouragement to Nikita Filatov, otherwise I wouldnt be surprised to see him traded in the offseason.
