We see you, Michael Buble.

Already famous for churning out some of the best Christmas music of all time, the Canadian-born music star (and self-described hockey super fan) came to the defense of Columbus and the Blue Jackets during his recent show at the Schottenstein Center.

During the show, Buble stopped to tell the crowd that he was pulling for the Blue Jackets to knock off the President's Trophy winners, the Tampa Bay Lightning (which they did), and then added a little extra gasoline to the fire.

He said Artemi Panarin, Sergei Bobrovsky and Matt Duchene were "idiots" for signing elsewhere in free agency. 

While we shouldn't expect much to come from either of the two Russians, Duchene – a big music fan who signed with the Nashville Predators – playfully jabbed back at Buble.
