Columbus Blue Jackets Have Room to Improve

The Columbus Blue Jackets finished the season with a record of 29-46-7, placing last in the entire NHL. The Blue Jackets hope that they can improve in the offseason and be more competitive next season.
The Blue Jackets ranked 26th in the NHL in goals, averaging 2.4 goals per game. Rick Nash (RW) was the team’s top goal scoring threat. Nash led the team with 30 goals and 29 assists on the year. Vinny Prospal (LW) was solid this season, leading the team in assist with 39. R.J Umberger (LW) also pitched in with 20 assists and 20 goals. The Blue Jackets will need to find ways to score more goals if they want to have more success next season.
Defensively, the Blue Jackets were not much better, ranking 28th in the NHL in goals against. Steve Mason (G) and Curtis Sanford (G) hope that they can help hold their opponents to fewer goals next year. The two goalies split time in goal this season, with Sanford having slightly more success. Sanford had a save percentage of .911 this year.
Overall, the Blue Jackets will need to make some moves to improve their team this offseason. If they can add a few pieces to the puzzle, then they will compete next season.
