I really really want to hate JJ but I can’t. He played his ass off tonight and I’m a little concerned when he talked to Bob at the intermission. He said that he is now able to play “his” game with the Blue Jackets. Was he held back so much when he was a King? I know we joke that when players leave us, they blossom. But seriously, why is that happening? Simmers over at Philly has more points than ever. Schenn is scoring as is other former King players too. I want to sweep that under the rug but it keeps showing its ugly head. Why can’t we score and why are players who leave doing better than they were with us?
JJ put it out in the open so I’ll think about it.
