The Columbus Dispatch : Blue Jackets sign No. 1 pick
Good job by the Jackets locking up their man. Nikita Filatov is kind of a hit or miss guy on his game, but if you hit with him he is going to be one heck of a player. He has a lot of potential.
is it me or are most teams going to be better next year, the jackets should improve by quite a bit

and good luck to RJ Umberger
