CannonBalls: Your Daily Barrage Of CBJ And NHL Links - 2/3/14


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!

Should the Jackets Target Dan Girardi?: The Jackets are surprisingly good on offense this season, but things could be better on defense. With a young core, as well as the offensive talents of Jack Johnson and James Wisniewski, there is plenty of offense being generated at the blue line. The Cannon takes a look at one player who could improve the defense and is a potential trade deadline target, Dan Girardi. Girardi is a shutdown defenseman and leads the Rangers in blocked shots. Could he help shore up the Jackets blue line? [ The Cannon ]

NHL

Coyotes Planning 1996 Throwback Jersey: The old peyote Coyote jersey may once again see NHL action next year. The Coyotes announced earlier this week that they will become the Arizona Coyotes for the 2014-15 season. This past weekend, Craig Morgan of Fox Sports Arizona also tweeted out that the Coyotes are planning to wear their original jerseys for one game next year. While maligned by many, I always liked the original Coyotes uniforms. [ Icethetics ]

Should the NHL Take On Super Bowl Sunday?: Yesterday was Super Bowl Sunday in the US, which has grown to become an unofficial holiday for many. Over at Too Many Men On The Site, Mark Huss takes a look at how the NHL could potentially compete for views on that holiest of football days. [ Too Many Men On The Site ]
