Seth Jones, Blue Jackets want to win Stanley Cup 'right now'

Coming off the Columbus Blue Jackets' record-setting 2016-17 season, defenseman Seth Jones has no reservations about confidently and matter-of-factly stating the goal for this season.

"We want to win the Stanley Cup right now," Jones said during the NHL Player Media Tour at the League offices on Wednesday.

The Blue Jackets set their single-season records for wins (50) and points (108) last season, when they finished third in the Metropolitan Division. Columbus lost to the eventual Stanley Cup champion Pittsburgh Penguins in five games in the Eastern Conference First Round.

Even with the early exit in the Stanley Cup Playoffs, the Blue Jackets' success last season, one season after they had 76 points to finish last in the division, has put them in the conversation among the NHL's elite teams, which means they should be considered a realistic contender to win the Stanley Cup this season.

The Blue Jackets had previously never had more than 43 wins or 93 points in a season.
