Cannonballs is a daily series where we will gather up links to other interesting stories from the Columbus Blue Jackets blogosphere, as well as general NHL and hockey news. While we strive to bring you the best coverage of the Columbus Blue Jackets here at the Union and Blue, there are several other CBJ blogs that do a great job as well. So with that, here is today’s edition of Union and Blue Cannonballs! 

Columbus Blue Jackets

Reps and More Reps: While Jackets fans continued to bask in the good feelings of consecutive wins, the Jackets were back on the ice to practice on Sunday. Puck Rakers looks at today’s practice, as well as previews tonight’s game against the Pittsburgh Penguins. [ Puck Rakers ]

Wisniewski Injured: The Jackets will be without James Wisniewski for at least the next week due to an upper body injury. [ Puck Rakers ]

DKM Hockey Episode #25: Last week DKM released the 25th edition of the DKM Hockey Podcast, recorded live at the CBJ Buffalo Wild Wing Watch Party. Includes the CBJ Drinking Game, Making Morgan Mad, and an interview with two members of the CBJ Ice Crew. [ DKM Hockey ]

NHL

Wayne Gretzky Should Join the Maple Leafs: Over at FanSided’s Editor In Leaf, Jeff Langridge makes the case for why the Maple Leafs and The Great One should forge a relationship, now that the NHL has made good on the money they owed him. [ Editor In Leaf ]

General Hockey

On ESPNU Coverage, College Hockey, and Respect: SB Nation’s College hockey blog has an interesting piece from Nathan Wells about the ESPNU coverage of last weeks Big 10 Opener, as well as the coverage on Big 10 Network (BTN). It also looks into how major networks can help grow NCAA hockey. [ SB Nation College Hockey ]

Every Team’s Riskiest Contract: Bleacher report takes a look at the riskiest contract for each team for the 2013-14 season. For the Jackets they say it is Sergei Bobrovsky, which I am not quite sure I agree with. A 2 year deal for a Vezina winner is hardly the type of thing that sinks a franchise. [ Bleacher Report ]

As Rick Nash Goes, So Will the Rangers: Tom Urtz, Jr. makes the case that the Rangers fate lies with how Rick Nash performs. [ Bleacher Report ]
