Blue Jackets' GM Scott Howson has just Tweeted that the club is making some roster moves in the wake of the club's ninth loss of the season last night:

We r sending Savard and Mayorov to Springfield and recalling Calvert.

Bonus points to Howson for being a conservationist with his characters.

Not sure why this move is being made, as while one could argue they want Matt Calvert for more offense, they never really gave Maksim Mayorov a chance to contribute. And, if Calvert is taking Mayorov's place on the third line, he also won't get to contribute much offensively.

The Savard move may mean that Radek Martinek is close, and possibly that Marc Methot is as well. John Moore has been OK but not great--much like Savard--so perhaps it's his turn to get some run.

The other move feels like shuffling deck chairs on the Titanic, personally.
