Favorite New Blue Jacket

Look, the season isn't going to be recovered at this point. We can only hope that Scott Howson is developing some type of game plan as to how to correct the direction the team is heading by the start of next season.

After last night, there are at least some positives to look at. Ryan Russell and Tomas Kubalik both scored their first NHL goals. Derick Brassard looked pretty darn good, and Nikita Nikitin continues to tally the assists. Oh yeah, and Ryan Johansen will represent the Blue Jackets at the NHL Young Stars game.

Looking at players that are either signed through next year or are restricted free agents, I thought it would be nice to discuss some of the positives from this season. Who is your favorite new Blue Jacket that has debuted this year?
