Video From Today's Press Conference

We've got some exclusive video from today's press conference for you - sorry for the delay, but video processing takes time.

First off, here's J.P. Mac making a few remarks, then the first official address from J.D. to the faithful:


Next, Lori Schmidt and I both had a chance to talk with Mike Priest, who talked about both his role and J.D.'s in regards to the community and the NHL at large.


Finally, we have the man himself, both finishing a session with some other local media, answering questions from Lori Schmidt, and finally a few minutes one on one with me.


For now, it's a lot to take in, but I can't help but feel like there are some big days ahead. The man is incredible in person, still full of power, energy, and clear enthusiasm for the road ahead.

It's a good day to be a fan of the Columbus Blue Jackets.
