So, "Jackets Time", eh?

Tuesday, August 29, 2006
Well, it was probably more my own fault than anything else for misinterpreting what FSN Ohio and the Blue Jackets had planned for the airing of Jackets Time between a week ago until September 29th. See, I actually thought each airing was going to be different and cover different things as we head slowly but steadily towards the pre-season and the regular season.

But 'lo and behold, Jackets Time is nothing more than a repeat each and every airing. Same Doug MacLean interview, same Rick Nash spotlight, same Gerard Gallant interview, same Danny Gare introduction ... you get the idea.

Now don't get me wrong, I appreciate the fact they even did this. But there is a lot more than they could do by actually, you know, having unique episodes of Jackets Time, and not just repeating the same one from now until just before the start of the season. They could talk about a variety of players, from the well-known to the role players to those in the system. They could even talk with some of the players.

So ... great idea, but bad execution, sadly. Here's hoping Between the Pipes and The Doug MacLean Show start up soon, so there's at least something interactive going on besides the weekly articles in The Columbus Dispatch.

P.S. J.P. Dumont to the Nashville Predators as of earlier today. After all is said and done concerning this off-season, I fear the Preds more than I fear even the Red Wings at the moment.
