Here at The Cannon, we’re proud to be a site where knowledgeable and passionate fans of the Columbus Blue Jackets gather to discuss their favorite team. Are they good or are they bad? How far can these goalies take us? Will Brad Larsen ever fix the power play?

We always love hearing your opinions, and now SBNation wants to hear them as well, along with similarly insightful fans from all over the network. We are proud to announce the launch of SB Nation FanPulse.

SIGN UP HERE today to join a select group of SB Nation NHL readership who answer quick polls each week developed by SB Nation.

We want to build the definitive poll of informed NHL fans, and that includes you. Your votes will be anonymous - though if you want to join, you’re welcome to tell anyone you like.

The results of each poll will be published by The Cannon and may end up on also along with the results from other team sites.

What does this look like in practice? NFL and College Football sites have been participating since the offseason, tracking fan confidence in the team. Here are examples from our Ohio State and Cincinnati Bengals blogs.

You can expect similar articles from those linked above on a semiweekly basis from The Cannon as we check the pulse of the fans on a variety of topics. As a participant, you’ll get an email with a link each time we have a new survey.

This week we’re starting with early season predictions for the postseason - which two 2018-19 playoff teams are going to miss the postseason this year and which two teams that were outside the playoff picture will make the 2019-20 postseason? Have an opinion? We’d love to hear it! I’m sure you’re dreading the answer to that first question, so be sure to make your voice heard if you think there are teams other than the Blue Jackets that may miss.
