Suggestion on how to solve CBJ's offense problem in the last few weeks of this season


To us long suffering blue jackets fans, it is very important to make playoff this season. However we are very sad that we have lost quite a lot games against teams that have already out of playoff. THIS SITUATION CANNOT CONTINUE!! Not making playoff this season will further damage our already low fan support in Columbus.

One reason our goal scoring was down in the past ten games was that we passed too much in the offensive zone. Our forwards are constantly passing the puck to look for the perfect shot. This is the wrong way to play against the weak teams that have already been out of playoff (e.g. Islanders). This is also the wrong way to play against the strong teams that have already clinched playoff (e.g. Penguins).

We should shoot the puck toward the net and let the other teams defenders to have chance blocking the shot. To the teams that are playing meaningless games, the motivation to block the shots is very low because blocking shots can be very painful. If a defenders had one or two painful block at the beginning of the game, he will be very hesitated to block shots in the third period. In this way we can score one or two extra goals in these games.

In our schedule, there are actually many games that the other team has nothing to play for. If we can win these games, we might still get into playoff. However the door is closing fast with the lost of each game.
