Full of young talent, Blue Jackets look past dismal season

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) Columbus Blue Jackets coach John Tortorella was typically blunt on Monday in looking back on the team's dismal season.

"I'm disappointed, I'm mad, frustrated," said Tortorella, who was brought in to try to stop the bleeding after the Blue Jackets lost their first seven games of the season. "I feel like I've let the organization down. I don't think I've done enough to get this straightened out."

Columbus was considered a playoff contender before the season, but started 0-8 and wildly inconsistent play never allowed the team to gain any traction. The Blue Jackets had to win four out of the last five games of the season just to finish 34-40-8. Only three teams in the NHL were worse. They missed the playoffs for the 13th time in the team's 15 seasons.
