Description: Blue Jackets forward Cam Atkinson has tremendous potential this season if he plays alongside new teammate Scott Hartnell.
Insight: Atkinson scored 21 goals last year, but the team has gone on record that the forward's potential is closer to 30 goals per season. Atkinson has struggled with his lack of size, which is why playing with the big bruiser, Hartnell, will help Atkinson so much. No one knows yet if indeed Atkinson and Hartnell will be paired together but better to be proactive in the draft than reactive later on during the season.

Insight: "I wouldn't say (I'm) concerned," Blue Jackets coach Todd Richards said. "I guess there's possibilities in anything, whether he's in or he's out. But right now Im not concerned." The only reason Atkinson would miss Saturday's game is because the team is taking precautions with a condensed 48-game schedule ahead. Atkinson is expected to skate on Columbus' top line.
