As the NHL and NHLPA work to ratify the new CBA agreement, it's finally time to talk about how the Blue Jackets are going to look ON the ice, as opposed to on the balance sheets.

In Case You Forgot...

In addition to the hiring of John Davidson to lead the club's hockey operations, we'll finally be getting a chance to look at the players acquired over the office season in the Rick Nash deal, plus free agency / trade pickups like Sergei Bobrovsky, Nick Foligno, and Jonathan Audy-Marchessault.

In one respect, the roster seems fairly set based on the team's current contract picture, but on the other, the performance of players abroad and in the AHL may have opened some doors that we didn't expect. Time to take a look at a few different areas and see what surprises training camp may hold.
