Shrapnel - 2/7/12

Game day! Nice to have hockey back in town for a bit - five of the next six games, in fact, are at home...

At The Score, they've decided to recast Stand By Me with a Blue Jackets twist...what you feel about it will be highly dependent on your level of 80s nostalgia.

Meanwhile, Carry The Flag has their weekly prospect report and it appears the Jackets should be getting a few guys back in the next week.

Over at Backhand Shelf, they've got an in-depth look at college hockey players in the NHL and a history lesson.

Icethetics has their first 2012 Jersey Watch, and DBJ takes a hard look at Todd Richards as part of his new Glass Bangers.

At Puck Daddy, Lambert thinks the NHL could learn from the super bowl (and he has some fair points, but I also think the reverse is true), the former owner of the Hartford Whalers isn't impressed with the health of other NHL markets, Ray Emery getting a shot in Chicago, Brian Boyle talking a post-superbowl walk of shame, Jordan Leopold in a nasty collision with Lindy Ruff, and wondering if Ryan Nugent-Hopkins may no longer be a sure thing for the Calder Trophy (especially since he was hurt in last night's game vs. Toronto).

At the Dispatch, Todd Richards is still calling for the team to focus on pride, and Ryan Russell is making himself a home through hard work.

Finally, it's not hockey related, but there is a cat on the pitch. This is not innuendo. It is not some strange code phrase. There is a cat on the pitch at Anfield. A cat. On the pitch.
