Good is the Enemy of Great

Last year, it was, “Safe is death.” This year, “Good is the enemy of great.”

Surely, Torts will tell the team this before the game, as it is the new message. This is only the Blue Jackets fourth game this year, so there will probably be a little bit of sloppy play even with the reminders to be great.

Unless they make a few early mistakes they can’t recover from, the Blue Jackets have a good chance in this one. Like previously mentioned, the opportunity to derail the Rangers a little bit should have the Blue Jackets fired up.

The season is still early, so the Rangers will have time to recover if they lose. However, adding to another team’s agony would be a plus.

Tonight’s game should be entertaining, regardless, because it’s always interesting when the Rangers come to town.
