Columbus Blue Jackets
Major Additions: Brandon Saad, Gregory Campbell After being projected as one of the hottest teams to watch out for in the 2014-15 NHL season, the Blue Jackets had a year decimated by injuries to several key players. Still, the Blue Jackets finished the season with a respectable 42 wins. Barring any major injuries in the upcoming season, Columbus should be a playoff-bound team. Besides the returning group of healthy players, the Blue Jackets have made two major additions to their roster, snagging Brandon Saad from the defending Stanley Cup champs Chicago and an experienced fourth-line center in Gregory Campbell.As a two-time Stanley Cup champion with the Blackhawks that is entering his peak, the 22-year-old Saad is a two-way forwards that brings a lot of skill and speed to his team, which should make him a formidable top-line combination with center Ryan Johansen. With their feared physical style of play, immense skill and new-found depth, the Jackets are likely to be the most improved team in the NHL, causing sleepless nights to teams in the East.
