17. Columbus Blue Jackets
Previous: No. 10
I think the Jackets will realize quickly that, no matter how much they enjoy Artemi Panarin‘s fireworks on offense, they’re missing Brandon Saad‘s two-way play more. Sergei Bobrovsky is going to need to be at his Vezina Trophy-winning best for the Jackets to hang with the Penguins and Capitals like they did last season. Early preseason returns (.870/3.64) are not positive.
