Since there was a limit on how many players that teams could protect, the Jackets and Wild were granted concessions by other franchises.

October 7, 2000 was the day the Columbus Blue Jackets played their first regular season game, a 5-3 loss to the Chicago Blackhawks. Bruce Gardiner scored the franchise's first goal. Columbus finished with a 28-39-9-6 record for 71 points, failing to qualify for the playoffs.

The Blue Jackets finished next to last in the NHL the following season, 2001-02, with only 57 points. Ray Whitney, acquired from the Florida Panthers the previous season, led the team in scoring. Tragedy struck the Blue Jackets organization in March 2002 when 13-year-old Brittanie Cecil was killed after an errant shot by Espen Knutsen struck her in the head while she was in the stands at Nationwide Arena.

Following the season, the Jackets traded Tugnutt to the Dallas Stars.

The 2002-03 NHL season started relatively well, with Columbus putting up a 7-5-1-1 record after the first fourteen games. But as expectations from their fans grew higher, the team came back to mediocrity, finishing in the Central Division's basement for the third consecutive season and missing the playoffs once again. Dave King, the team's head coach since their debut in 2000, was fired midseason and replaced by general manager Doug MacLean. Marc Denis was given the starting job and played a franchise record seventy-seven games that season, two shy of the NHL record for goalies held by St. Louis' Grant Fuhr in the 1995-96 season.

The 2003-04 season was another disappointing season for the Blue Jackets despite key additions in the offseason. Checking center Todd Marchant was signed to a five-year contract in July from the Edmonton Oilers and offensive defenseman Darryl Sydor was acquired from Dallas for Mike Sillinger and a draft pick. MacLean stepped aside as head coach 33 games into the season, giving way to Gerard Gallant. The Jackets finished with just 62 points, the second-lowest total in their short history.

In the summer of 2005, rugged Colorado Avalanche defenseman Adam Foote agreed to a multi-year deal with the team. Heading into the 2005-06 NHL season, it appeared the Jackets would finally take the next step and make the playoffs. But injuries to Nash, Klesla, and the team's 2005 first-round pick Gilbert Brule led to the team putting up a dismal 9-25-1 record through their first 35 games. Superstar Sergei Fedorov was acquired from the Anaheim Mighty Ducks, and though the team's play eventually did get better, they failed to make the postseason. Todd Marchant was claimed off waivers by the Ducks; as well, Anaheim received Tyler Wright and François Beauchemin. The team did, however, manage to become a surprising breakout team for the year. They had the best record for the month of January, and ended up finishing the season with a franchise record of wins and points for the season.

In the 2006 offseason, Marc Denis was dealt to the Tampa Bay Lightning for forward Fredrik Modin and goalie prospect Fredrik Norrena, making way for Pascal Leclaire to finally grab the starting job. The Blue Jackets also added depth to their young team by signing Anson Carter when it looked as if Nikolai Zherdev would be playing the season in Russia. However, General Manager Doug MacLean and Zherdev were able to compromise and agree upon a 3-year, $7.5-million dollar contract. On Monday, November 13, 2006, Gerard Gallant was relieved of his duties as head coach. The next day, Gary Agnew was named his interim replacement.
