COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- The Columbus Blue Jackets' logo is an Ohio flag wrapped around a silver star.
More appropo might be a black cloud. Or, after 12 years of bad moves and bad breaks, a broken mirror.
Yes, the NHL franchise has made numerous hare-brained personnel decisions, awful trades, dumb signings and public relations gaffes.
But there's no avoiding it: If the Jackets had any luck at all, it would be bad.
While other teams celebrate this exciting playoff season - one filled with overtime drama, controversial calls and some new faces in this league's version of the Elite Eight - the Jackets and their fans must watch on TV.
From never moving up in the draft lottery to missing out on superstars Sidney Crosby and Alexander Ovechkin, the Blue Jackets can't catch a break.
