Blue Jackets Are Talking Trade
Getting multiple reports that GM Scott Howson and the Blue Jackets are in talks with at least 2 teams to acquire a puck moving defenseman. The rumor doesn't have enough confirmation to report but roster players are involved going both ways.
There seems to be way to much smoke not to be some fire in there. Wouldn't doubt that something could happen in the next couple days.
The scenario that surfaced last night was that the Blue Jackets were looking to make a trade with the Montreal Canadiens. The trade rumored was that the CBJ would be sending Rusty Klesla and Fredrick Modin in return for Roman Hamrlik. On paper, the trade looks like it would make a lot of sense for both clubs as the salaries would match up and it would be players needed by both teams. I will let you know if this trade rumor gets legs in the future.
