Let's be honest with one another CBJ fans.
You did your homework before the NHL draft and knew a little of the talents of Alexander Wennberg, the Jackets first pick Sunday.
You may have also known that the Jacket's second pick, Kerby Rychel is following the NHL footsteps of his father who won a Stanley Cup while playing with Colorado in 1996.
And you may have even known that the Jackets third pick in the first round, Marko Dano skates with current Blue Jacket Marion Gaborik back home in Slovakia.
Great. They all will be wonderful members of the team....someday.
What mattered most was the best save of the summer.
The CBJ's best save since Sergei Bobrovsky stoned the Nashville Predators in April.
The Jackets coming to terms with Sergei Bobrovsky on a new two year deal relegates the three first round picks to the next page in team news for the week.
This is not to diminish any of their burgeoning skills.
It's all about Bob.
The flurry at the Jackets draft table in the hours leading up to the draft had little to do with pick number 14 and everything to do with number 72.
Reports began to circulate that Bobrovsky and the Blue Jackets were far apart in negotiations and that the Vezina Trophy winning goaltender was on the trading block.
That got my phone buzzing. News rocketed through the Blue Jackets draft party at Nationwide Arena quickly to the point that the opportunity for fans to have their picture taken with the Vezina was in jeopardy.
Team officials were poised to bring a hasty end to that promotion if Bob had decided to take his talents elsewhere.
John Davidson, a former NHL goaltender himself, may not be the team's general manager. But as President of Hockey Operations, you know he had more than a glove hand in saving the Bobrovsky negotiations.
The fact that he and GM Jarmo Kekalainen put together a workable deal for both sides is what fans are celebrating.
The team, frankly any NHL team needs to be solid from the goaltender out. Had Bob and the CBJ not comes to terms, that dynamic would have been much tougher to achieve.
But Davidson and Kekalainen did it. Making the biggest save of the off-season.
It certainly put a little more Red in the Red, White and Boom celebration. And a little more green in the pocket of the man who brought some boom back to Nationwide Arena.
