The Columbus Blue Jackets’ season is finally underway, and although we at The Cannon Cast didn’t love the 0-2 start...are we worried? We talk about that, the Cleveland Monsters’ sweep of the Laval Rocket and we wrap up our NHL preview with our look at the Metropolitan Division.
Also, we recorded this before Monday’s game. By now, you know the Blue Jackets beat the Buffalo Sabres in overtime. We knew this would happen. Classic reverse jinx by us. You’re welcome.
In this episode, we also talk about:
- Is it time to panic?
- What happened those first two games?
- Can we stop talking about the players who left?
- How about those Monsters?
- Are the New Jersey Devils a lot better?
- Have the New York Rangers rebuilt enough already?
- Will Carter Hart carry the Philadelphia Flyers?
- Is this the Carolina Hurricanes’ year?
- Is the Pittsburgh Penguins’ window closing?
- Will the Washington Capitals win the division again?
You can find all of our predictions on our predictions post. We mentioned Pale Dragon’s Cannon Blasts from Sunday, as well as Elaine’s first State of the Monsters. Also, the YouTube account Ryan mentions is SpecmenceCBJ.
