Best Columbus Blue Jackets Betting Sites

Perhaps the most amazing thing about the Columbus Jackets is that they aren’t the least bit amazing. After all, this is a team that made its first round NHL entry draft selection in the top eight picks in 12 of the first 16 seasons in franchise, and in the top four in four of those seasons. That’s a lot of high-end talent going to one location, and yet through those 16 years the Blue Jackets show just two playoff appearances and both times, they made rapid first-round exits. [+]

All of which leads to a perplexing scenario – are the Blue Jackets underachievers, or are they simply not nearly as good as people thought they were?

When you start to go down the list of the first round selections made by the Columbus Blue Jackets in the NHL entry draft, perhaps the cause of their perennial struggles comes to light.

Pascal Leclaire, Alexandre Picard, Nikolai Zherdev, Gilbert Brule and Nikita Filatov are among this group and the Hall of Fame isn’t holding spots for any of them. Then there are too many other solid Columbus first round picks who now play for other NHL teams, guys like Rick Nash and Derick Brassard, Jakub Voracek and Ryan Johansen. 

All of them were in the 2016 Stanley Cup playoffs. The Blue Jackets were not.

The Blue Jackets current standings in the NHL’s Metropolitan Division are listed here and too often, it isn’t difficult to locate the Blue Jackets. They’re usually occupying the basement. [+]

How To Win At Columbus Blue Jackets Betting

When they got hot, they roll for quite some time but when the Blue Jackets cool off, the cold spell can be interminable.

The Blue Jackets finished the 2014-15 season on a 12-0-1 run, but it wasn’t enough to overcome eight and six-game losing streaks earlier in the season and Columbus missed the playoffs. And any though that the finish would bode well for the 2015-16 campaign was dashed when Columbus opened the season 0-8, costing coach Todd Richards his job.

The Blue Jackets have never suited up a stud defenceman and the evidence of this can be counted in the number of pucks that enter the Columbus net on an annual basis. They allowed 250 goals in 2014-15, which was 26th-worst in the NHL. The Blue Jackets sunk even lower in 2015-16, picking 252 pucks out of their net. 29th-worst in the entire 30-team league.

A rash of injuries to start the 2014-15 season not only cost the Blue Jackets an NHL-high 508 man games, it also revealed the appalling lack of depth within the organization.

For a team that’s finished low in the standings most seasons, meaning they’d draft early in every round, the Blue Jackets have proven abysmal at assessing talent and have never finished better than seventh overall in the conference standings. It’s no wonder this is a team that’s had more coaches (nine) than winning seasons (four) and more general managers (three) than playoff wins (two).

With all the scoring chances they surrender on a game-to-game basis thanks to their shoddy defensive play, it’s fortunate for the Blue Jackets that they have a Vezina Trophy winner between the pipes.

Sergei Bobrovsky was voted the NHL’s top goaltender following the 2012-13 season, but lately, the problem for Bobrovsky and the Blue Jackets is that the workloaad may be taking its toll on him. Hindered by injuries in both 2014-15 and 2015-16, Bobrovsky was limited to 37 games in 2015-16 by a series of groin ailments.
