The Columbus Blue Jackets only played twice last week, but both went past regulation as this CBJ treaded water with some more close games. On this episode of The Cannon Cast, we talk about the overtime loss and shootout win, as well as some new line combinations and coaching decisions. We also dive in to the differences between John Tortorella and Mike Eaves, as well as what the NHL can do about its players lying bleeding on the ice while play continues.

In this episode, we talk about:

  • How was last week?
  • Has Oliver Bjorkstrand lost his smile?
  • Is Torts the right coach for this team?
  • Which one of us can’t watch another Columbus power play?
  • Will the new line combinations stick?
  • Is Elvis Merzlikins only pawn in game of hockey?
  • Do we miss Nick Foligno?
  • Are Columbus’s issues bleeding over to Cleveland?
  • Can the NHL fix the rule about injured players? a lot more.
