A look at all 30 teams heading into camp

Here is what they are saying about the Jackets:

Camp opens: Sept. 13, Columbus

Having Mike Peca and Sergei Fedorov gives the Blue Jackets a pair of top centres, if only this was five years ago ... Rick Nash showed a willingness under coach Ken Hitchcock to improve his all-round game. If he improves his fitness, too, the Jackets will have a true star on their hands ... Despite having had so many high picks, the Blue Jackets have shockingly few youngsters ready to make the jump this year.

Will Nikolai Zherdev get it or play out the year before returning to Russia? Nobody can dispute his talent, but the enigmatic Zherdev has tantalized and driven crazy the Columbus crew. New GM Scott Howson recently met with Zherdev and his agents to clear the air with the hopes of making life smoother.
