Mythological beast re-signed by the Blue Jackets.

Saturday, July 22, 2006
Hybrid animal monster of Greek lore to stay in Columbus for two more years

Okay, okay, I'm done milking Jason Chimera's last name. I've always been a bit of a mythological buff, and really, Chimera is one of my favorite Jackets. Seeing him and MacLean hammer out a deal before arbitration hearings began was definitely a good thing.

MacLean talks about Chimera's speed in the press release concerning the re-signing, and he's dead on. The guy is flat out fast. Probably one of the top skaters on the whole team when it comes down to who can sprint across the ice. The only real problem has been his follow-through when he bursts through and into the offensive zone. While he can go from 0 to 50 in about three seconds, he has always had some difficulty when it concerns out thinking or out deking the defensemen he runs into. Obviously no one expects him to go and pull an Ovechkin, but it's still something he has to work on. And he most likely will this season, too.

    Yeah, I've been silent for awhile now. It's tough in the offseason, but I'm looking to get back into things.

    The Zherdev situation does scare me a little, but I have to think that something is going to happen before the season.

    Thanks for stopping by.

    I agree, signing Chimera was very important for the Jackets to keep most of the third line together.
