The month of December has drawn to a close, so that means it is time once again to assign a letter grade to the Columbus Blue Jackets for their performance during the month.

Columbus went 7-5-1 in the month of December, after going 4-1-0 through the first five games in the month. This is a great improvement over 5-8-3 record for November. While the month started on a high note, it ended with a pair of 5-3 losses, one to the Pittsburgh Penguins and the other two the Colorado Avalanche. It was a further reminder that the competition is a bit weaker in the East and the Jackets are not quite ready to run with the Metropolitan Division leading Pittsburgh Penguins.

When looking at the standings, Columbus started the month in 7th in the Metropolitan Division with 23 points. They remain in 7th at the end of December with 38 points. However, they are one point out of 6th and just 6 points out of third.

This is the third month we will be doing this poll.Β TheΒ result of the October pollΒ was a 74% average, or a C. In November, the fans gave the Jackets a 62%, or a D-.

We will continue to grade the Columbus Blue Jackets each month to get a clear view of the pulse of the Jackets fan base and how they feel the team is performing. Vote below and be sure to check back next week for the results!
