Looking at the standings, Columbus is only 3 points out of a playoff spot.   It is still Columbus though.

But, the headline made it sound like it was like that Houston/Jacksonville football game a few weeks ago.

What does everyone think of the new divisions? I'm guessing the Blue Jackets are getting some increased TV coverage from playing bigger market teams. I'm hoping that potential open spot in the Pacific division is saved for an NHL team in Seattle.

The Blue Jackets are on their third string goalie, and there was a disallowed goal that was a pretty lame call. Don't get me wrong; the Blue Jackets are very hit or miss this year, but lame calls like that will take the wind out of most teams' sails.

The Coyotes can void their lease in five seasons, they're next

The Blue jackets just got their long term free money gravy train

The Coyotes are also experiencing the fastest paced growth in the last three months than they've seen since they moved from Canada, so that whole five year wish that people have already looks like it's not coming to fruition.

You seem new to hockey threads. We usually get so few hockey threads that we talk about the daily on goings of the NHL in any hockey thread there is. So no, not thread jacking. Get with the program.

According to this

Winnipeg has had 100 % attendance of 15004 and Atlanta had 72, 73 % capacity with near 13607.
Winnipeg wins. Atlanta doesn't because fark Atlanta.

Okay - back on your "topic":

Either Lucic walks away from a fight with some drunken douchecanoe, and gets called a biatch for his troubles; or he goes to town on this idiot, and gets charged with aggravated assault and/or sued? What, in your infinite wisdom, should Lucic have done?

Not go to a club at 2 am where drunken idiots hang out? Or just maybe he has more in common with those drunken idiots than he does decent people who are home sleeping at that time.

So by your "reasoning", now that he's a professional athlete, he has to become a monk as well.

He wasn't at a club; he was at this place, which doesn't serve alcohol. He was minding his own business, eating his meal, when some asshole sucker-punched him.

Well don't hold your breath on that one. I guess you're not familiar with the concept of supply and demand. Have you been to Winnipeg since they got the Jets back? They're adored in the city, and no matter how piss poorly they do in the ice, they'll continue to put butts in those limited amount of seats.

I genuinely feel bad for the people in Atlanta who cared about the Thrashers. As a Jets fan I know what it's like to lose your favorite franchise to another city. That being said, Atlanta has had and lost 2 NHL franchises and has proved its a crap sports town when it comes to the pro ranks.

Uh, what empty seats? The NHL attendance report for this season so far shows that all of the Jets home games have been sell outs. Look it up on ESPN, it's right there in black and white.
