A professional hockey team in the NHL. This team was founded in 2000 as an expansion team. Though up till now their success has lacked as a team (Rick Nash got the Rocket Richard trophy for most goals in a season though), the start of the 2007-2008 has been kind to them. Once a team struggling and trying to build a solid franchise is now seeking to make it into the playoffs. So far, they are the only active team not to make the playoffs.
Before: The Columbus Blue Jackets lost again. Go fucking figure.
Now: The Columbus Blue Jackets won again. Go fucking figure.
