Since our newest writer, Lindsay Wilson, gave us an awesome post on the player profiles of the defenseman, I think it is necessary to find out what you think of the Blue Jackets blueliners (say that 5 times fast).

*Prerequisite reading: Columbus Blue Jackets Player Profiles: Defense by Lindsay Wilson.

I learned some new things about the defenseman of the Blue Jackets after reading Lindsay’s post, and like I just mentioned, I think it is a great time to find out more about what you think of Columbus’ defense.

I know I have asked this question before, probably multiple times actually. Since there is a new twist in the story though, I thought it would be a good time to ask again.

Twist in the story: Dalton Prout had surgery in mid August, therefore he will most likely be missing training camp, and potentially more time.

    Tyutin is the most solid, all-around defenseman. Wiz is injury-prone and has a history of suspension. JJ is the most often out of position defensively, but his shot is needed on the power play. Interested to see Murray get some time. Nikitin should be traded, he hasn’t maintained any momentum from 2012.
