Blue Jackets reset and look for path back to playoffs

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) Brad Larsen had a ringside seat as the Columbus Blue Jackets tanked down the stretch last season. He watched how players conducted themselves when the going got tough.

Larsen, then an assistant under coach John Tortorella, was in a good position to judge character as the losses piled up and the team sold off popular players. He thinks that insight gives him an edge as he assembles a roster for the first time as an NHL head coach.

"I really took the opportunity to watch, especially the last six weeks of the season, people responding on the bench, in practice, their habits in the gym," said Larsen, who was chosen to replace the fired Tortorella. "If your eyes are open and your ears are listening, you hear stuff and interactions. Some guys rose in those situations even though we didn't win - and some guys, there were concerns."
