Afternoon Scrum 11/30/09

CBJ General Manager Scott Howson will leave it up to the players in the room to find their way out of their current funk.

Hockey headlines for the CBJ and from around the league. Mmmmm... hockey

Your Columbus Blue Jackets, they of 5 consecutive losses, play host to the St. Louis Blues this evening. Read above for a Four Lines Deep preview of the matchup. For now, here are the headlines.
  • When does "no news" constitute a hockey headline? When your GM says no trades are imminent as a means of shaking things up on a team that has lost 5 in a row and is sitting 3 spots out of the playoffs.
  • Nikita Filatov as trend setter? Another young Russian player has defected to Mother Russia.
  • I will agree that while exciting, shootouts are a bogus way to decide the outcome of a game. Would you condone a tie basketball game being decided by a game of HORSE? THN's Adam Proteau addresses the grumblings regarding the use of shootouts to decide games.
  • Some news from on the Bluenotes: STL has called up a defenseman from the AHL for tonight's game. D Jonas Junland (6g-12a-18p) leads the AHL's Peoria Rivermen in points so far this season.
