Finally, Some Good News

Since the beginning of this season, there hasn't really been a single bit of good news for Blue Jackets fans.

Yesterday, NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman announced that the Blue Jackets will host the 2013 NHL All-Star game. There's finally something to look forward to in Columbus. This will be a great opportunity to show off the Arena and hopefully a few shiny All Stars to represent the Blue Jackets.

The concentration of star power in the city will help spread the message that this is, in fact, a hockey town and we'll be able to show them why.

So let's hope the 2012-13 Blue Jackets can make a turn-around like other teams we've seen in the last decade, going from worst to first in their divisions - namely the Chicago Blackhawks, Pittsburgh Penguins, and Philadelphia Flyers.

But if they can't, at least we have something to look forward to, for the first time in a long time.
