Have a great draft CBJ fans!

I outta here for the day. Just wanted to take a moment to thank everyone for reading this blog!

This has the potential to be a very big day for the Jackest organzation so sit, back, relax and have some drafts on draft day! We may need them one way or another.

I'll post my thoughts and reactions to today's events late tonight or early tomorrow!

Woo Hoo! Filatov!

I didn't believe he'd be there when we picked. I was kinda expecting that we'd land Schenn because I figured Filatov would go to the Island and Schenn would fall to us. Columbus could really have used Schenn who will be a defensive stud for years to come but I have to say I'm really excited about Filatov.

Some scouts said that if he's name was "John Smith" he would have battled Stamkos for #1 overall because he's talent level is on par with him. The fact that he's Russian may have scared some teams off but everything I read about this kid says he's a leader, team player and skilled beyond belief!

Way to go Howson! I'm glad he had the balls to take a chance on him and can't wait to see him in a Jacket's jersey.
