He’s as good a person as he is a hockey player, if you can believe that, but he knows as well as I do that I’m trying to win the Cup as much as he is. It’s well understood between the two of us that we’re going to go as hard as we can.

It’s the Stanley Cup. We’ll be friends again afterward.

I guess Calvy was just telling [Nash] ‘We’re going. I don’t care what you say. We’re going.’ Calvy’s a little rat out there. It doesn’t matter how much bigger you are… Calvy’s a feisty little bugger out there.

Bob made a fucking bench out of his stick during commercial breaks. It’s kind of adorable…

I love Bob’s “zen master I will win this game now” pose. I hadn’t noticed the stick-bench before, but damn man. So clever.

Sunday night, the Columbus Blue Jackets celebrated a victory over the New York Islanders at Nationwide Arena, alongside 15,667 fans in attendance during Fan Appreciation Night. That celebration also gave fans an insight into the team’s postgame routine. Not only did the crowd see the team take off their jerseys to give to fans, the Jackets’ victory song, “Timber” — usually played in the locker room — played throughout the arena.
"I’m in charge of the winning song," said Jackets forward Cam Atkinson, who chose the postgame victory song. Currently ranked 13th on the Billboard "Hot 100" chart, "Timber" features artists Pitbull and Kesha. "I’m a fan of Kesha and her music, so I picked the song and the guys loved it."
It’s not just about the song for Atkinson, it’s about the response in the room.
"The guys started dancing — I’ve never seen these kind of dance moves come out of the woodwork," Atkinson said with a smile.
Boone Jenner is someone Atkinson said can “shake his boots.” The compliment had Jenner laughing.
"I don’t think I have the best moves, but our win song is a time to come together," Jenner said. "Whenever you hear it, it’s a good sign."
One guy who can’t dance, according to Atkinson, is Jackets defenseman Dalton Prout. Prout didn’t argue with the assessment.
"I have no background of dancing, no practicing. I try here and there," Prout said. "I don’t dance too often, but I certainly try once in a blue moon."
The song itself has drawn different reviews.
"I really like that song," Jenner said. "I’m happy with (Cam’s) choices. A lot of guys give him a hard time if he picks bad songs."
One player with a differen opinion on the current win song of choice is Jackets forward Nathan Horton. He considers himself a fan of mostly rock music, but he’ll put up with some pop music.
"I’m not a Kesha fan," Horton said. "But as long as (Timber is) blaring, it means everything went well."
And, besides, overall, Atkinson gets props for his song picking skills.
"(Atkinson’s) a great D.J.," Prout said. "He picks good songs no matter where we are and what we’re doing. He has a knack for putting a mood together with a song."
And, Prout said, it’s not just about picking a good song or a good artist.
"As long as there is a good beat and it puts everyone in a good mood, and every time you hear it you think about winning, it’s a win song," Prout said. "That’s all that matters."

#everything is terrible all the time always#columbus blue jackets#the nhl is for everybody#CAM ATKINSON I DON’T KNOW WHAT TO SAY TO YOU#everybody takes this so seriously????#they are all so supportive of cam’s taste in pop music???#somedays you just gotta DANCE says professional dj and drummer in a rap band cam atkinson
This team is incredibly, weirdly supportive of Cam’s questionable DJing choices, and I think that’s beautiful.
