News
Doctors have cleared Blue Jackets defenseman Ryan Murray for 'controlled contact' at practice.

Blue Jackets center Brandon Dubinsky is doubtful for Thursday's game against Buffalo due to a lower body injury.
sportsnetwork.com

Impact
Dubinsky will likely be a second-line regular, but he excelled in that role last season with 16 goals and 34 assists. We expect him to do all the little things to put up solid numbers: 18 goals and 35 assists are our projections, no matter where he is in the lineup.

Columbus winger Boone Jenner will miss up to five weeks after surgery on a broken hand.

News
Flyers left wing R.J. Umberger posted four straight 20-goal seasons from 2008-2012.
sportsnetwork.com

Impact
Umberger did all that with the Columbus Blue Jackets. This year, Umberger will have the challenge of holding off the up-and-coming players on the Flyers roster. Umberger has experience and is a player both the Flyers and fantasy owners can comfortably fall back on, but his ceiling is pretty low. He scored just 34 points last year in 74 games.

Impact
Not a good sign for Horton, who played in only 36 games last season, the fewest in his 10-year career. He also had a career-low five goals and 19 points in 2013-2014. He will likely miss all of training camp and could miss the start of the regular season.

News
Blue Jackets left wing Nick Foligno could be a quality fantasy bench player this year.
sportsnetwork.com

Impact
Foligno has the talent to be a good fantasy contributor, but he has to be in the right situation. Foligno might not begin the season on a scoring line due to the additon of Scott Hartnell and other young developing players for the Blue Jackets. If Columbus suffers a couple injuries or the Ryan Johansen holdout becomes a bigger issue, Foligno is more than capable of getting more ice time and producing.
Blue Jackets forward Cam Atkinson has tremendous potential this season if he plays alongside new teammate Scott Hartnell. | 09/25/2014 11:50 AM
News
Blue Jackets forward Cam Atkinson has tremendous potential this season if he plays alongside new teammate Scott Hartnell.
sportsnetwork.com

Impact
Atkinson scored 21 goals last year, but the team has gone on record that the forward's potential is closer to 30 goals per season. Atkinson has struggled with his lack of size, which is why playing with the big bruiser, Hartnell, will help Atkinson so much. No one knows yet if indeed Atkinson and Hartnell will be paired together but better to be proactive in the draft than reactive later on during the season.

News
Blue Jackets winger Scott Hartnell will score more goals and points in the 2014-2015 season than he did last year.
sportsnetwork.com

Impact
Our projections have Hartnell scoring 24 goals and 34 assists in his first year in Columbus. Hartnell should continue to provide across-the-board contribution to all stats, in particular, to the power play. Even still, do not draft him too early because it might take awhile for Hartnell to gain a rapport with Ryan Johansen, especially if Johansen is not in training camp.
Blue Jackets center Ryan Johansen lowered his contract demands by more than $2 million per season according to Sportsnea.ca. | 09/25/2014 11:18 AM
News
Blue Jackets center Ryan Johansen lowered his contract demands by more than $2 million per season according to Sportsnea.ca.
sportsnetwork.com

Impact
The latest report says Johansen is asking for two years, $4.7 million per year. The Blue Jackets would still like their center's demands to lower even more before they begin serious negiotiations. We think Johansen will easily repeat his 2013-2014 numbers, 33 goals, 30 assists, and 237 shots, if a contract is agreed upon before the season, but we are still concerned that woun't happen.

Ryan Johansen willing to sign for two years | 07/21/2014 9:41 AM
News
Ryan Johansen's agent has reportedly made the Columbus Blue Jackets a two-year offer.
Columbus Dispatch

Impact
Johansen is a restricted free agent and previously called the Blue Jackets insistence on a shot-term contract a "slap in the face," so the fact that they're now willing to settle for a two-year deal is huge. He broke out last season with 33 goals and 63 points, but he didn't do much offensively in his first two NHL seasons. It's not hard to see why the Blue Jackets would want to hedge their bets by inking him to a short-term deal under the circumstances, although we don't think Johansen's 2013-14 campaign was a fluke.
Tim Erixon has a one-way contract | 07/16/2014 9:41 AM
News
Tim Erixon's recently signed one-year contract with Columbus is a one-way deal.
Columbus Dispatch

Impact
That significantly increases Erixon's chances of spending the entire 2014-15 season with the Blue Jackets. That being said, it wouldn't be shocking if he ends up serving primarily as the team's seventh defenseman and consequently spends a fair amount of time in the press box. He had five goals and 38 points in 40 AHL contests in 2013-14.
