With last night's pre-season openers in the books, the NHL is officially back - and the Jackets will hit the ice to do their part tonight.
We'll have a preview up for the split squad games with Winnipeg later today - for now, here's a few things to help tide you over.
Over at TMM, Jeff had some Monday Musings, including a good discussion on the risks vs. rewards of shot blocking.
Gallos wraps up his definitive history with some thoughts on a definitive perspective.
In addition to his notebook piece, Portzline also put up a few impressions from camp on Day 3.
The fans in Winnipeg are gearing up for a party.
Tapeleg looks at Puck Daddy's Ryan Lambert, and about some good messages getting lost in translation. I have to admit, I love reading Wysh, Dmitri, and Harrison, but if I see Lambert's byline I'll skim, at best.
Jacket's prospect and WHL d-man Austin Madaisky is one of the guys flying up to Manitoba for tonight's game, and he's excited about the experience. Here's hoping he has a game to remember - he's almost certainly one of the players likely to be returned to their junior teams tomorrow. (Stick tap to @CBJProspects)
For all the talk about the Jackets potentially rolling a third scoring line once the season gets started, it seems former CBJ coach Claude Noel is looking to do the same in Winnipeg.
Last but not least - if you're going to ask fans to vote on a new goal song, it might be good to avoid choices that opposing fans can vote on.
