The Blue Jackets are doing enough to stay afloat. Is that OK?

The Cannon Cast logo

The Columbus Blue Jackets love close games! In this episode of The Cannon Cast, we discuss the week the CBJ beat Dallas and lost in overtime to Chicago and New York. We also talk about the team’s penchant for defensive scoring, the lack of production from the top and Sonny Milano’s flash, along with a Cleveland Monsters update.

We recorded this episode before the team’s Monday night win against Toronto. Some of our predictions...well, you’ll see.

In this episode, we also talk about:

  • The Blue Jackets sure do have some offensive defensemen, huh?
  • Are we scared about the lack of finish yet?
  • How’s Elvis Merzlikins looking?
  • Is Sonny Milano helping himself?
  • Where’s Cam Atkinson?
  • How did the Cleveland Monsters do last week?
  • How does Cleveland’s week ahead long?
  • Will the CBJ be ready for the Maple Leafs?
  • How much better does Joonas Korpisalo look? a lot more.

Our theme music is the song “Green Eyes,” by Angela Perley and the Howlin’ Moons off of their album “Homemade Vision.” Angela’s newest album is called “4:30” and you should listen to it! Go check her out at
