    I am not exactly optimistic about the CBJ getting out of this series.

We'll see what happens today. If the CBJ does not get out of the first round (again), might be time to retool this team, and by that, I mean make some changes, both players and possibly assistant coaches. I don't think they need to gut the team and start over, but it's fairly obvious that what they have been doing has not been working, at least when it comes to getting out of the first round.

    My understanding is that thereís not much retooling they can do due to some of the big contracts and no move clauses being on old crusty underperforming vets, so I think they have to win with what they have, but I am no expert on the NHL.

    We will see. Some of my optimism is because itís what I want to see, but I also donít see Washington winning four straight, so theyíll need a game 7 and Washington is terrible at game 7s right? Maybe Holtby implodes, or Wilson takes enough dumb penalties....

    Between Panarin, Jones, and Werenski and maybe something timely out of the other guys Iím hoping thatís enough offense to get us through, but itís not going to be easy. But letís hope!

    I didn't want to continue to discuss this because this is a college women's hockey forum, but since the college season is over, not to mention this is last season's thread, I will respond. I really would like to see the Jackets get out of the first round. The problem is the CBJ only has one legit star player (Panarin) and Washington has taken him away, so it is up to other guys to step up. There have been a couple guys step up, but unfortunately, not enough guys have stepped up. That is evident in the fact that the CBJ have lost three games in a row in this thing. Washington adjusted and took Panarin away and we haven't won since. Honestly, this shouldn't surprise anyone because the CBJ don't have the personnel to win a series in the NHL Playoffs. The CBJ have one legit star player along with a bunch of grinders. Grinders don't win Cups, teams with star players (like Pittsburgh) win Cups. Maybe the Jackets will prove me wrong, but I doubt it. And you are probably correct regarding the retooling because they do have a bunch of guys locked into some big contracts. With the down season many of them have had, it would be next to impossible to get anyone to take them off our hands. We'll see what happens. I'm thinking the Jackets will be out golfing next weekend.

    Sadness. You were right about it all. Back to college hockey.

    I wanted to be wrong, but unfortunately, the Jackets just do not have the skill necessary to win a playoff series. I lost count of how many times I heard the radio or tv guys say "Missed the net." You HAVE to hit the net. Also, it's tough to win a series when you're 0 for your last 17 on the power play. Really, the first change that needs to be made is the CBJ need to fire whoever is in charge of the power play. 0-for-17, that is inexcusable. Thank God Barry Trotz decided to start Grubauer in net those first two games. Otherwise, we may have gotten swept. Some are going to blame Tortorella, but you can't blame Tortorella when the front office hasn't provided Tortorella with the personnel he needs to get out of the first round. I need to just cut myself off because I am ****ed right now. My hockey season is officially over now ... Buckeye Women, Buckeye Men, and now Blue Jackets ... and still Title-less ... well, unless I count the Cleveland Monsters winning that Calder Cup two years ago. That was pretty cool. 19K+ at Quicken Loans Arena to watch the Monsters beat Hershey 1-0 in 2OT to win the Calder Cup and we were part of that record crowd. Well, that is enough. Five more months until my OSU Women start again! Let the countdown begin! Take care Lindsay!

    And the Caps went an incredible 9 for 27 on the power play on the series. Yikes. Onward, and take care to you as well.

    Whatís the latest with Sauve? Is it a done deal? I also saw that Cory is out in an earlier post. That would leave the Buckeyes down to two goalies. Is there another one coming in? There are no goaltenders on the commitment list for next year that I saw.

    From the Clarkson Hockey Roundtable Rumor mill: A co-worker was up at campus last weekend and spoke to someone "in the know" about next season. She reported that two hockey players are transferring in with one being the goalie from Ohio State. The other, whose name she couldn't remember, is a very talented player from our Connecticut rival Quinnipiac.

    The person reporting other goings on in the past has been spot on.

    Interesting. Wonder who the Quinnipiac transfer is?

    No idea. There was mention some time ago on this site that a European goalie was committed to OSU and joining the team to take over for Sauve. Maybe that would explain why she left. Not sure if the new goalie is joining the Buckeyes for the 2018 or 2019 season? It looks like two of the top three teams in the conference last year will have new goaltenders to start the season. Interesting.
