Looks like Malhotra will be going to free agency...

Malhotra Signing Appears Unlikely
MONTREAL -- With two days to go before NHL free agency opens, it's almost certain that Blue Jackets center Manny Malhotra will test the market.

General manager Scott Howson and Malhotra's agent have not spoken in more than a week since negotiations stalled.

Howson would say only that "We have significant ground to cover" if a deal is to get done.

The two sides are apart on both dollars and the length of the contract, Howson said. Malhotra made $1.5 million last season, the final year of a three-year contract.

Malhotra has not returned several calls from The Dispatch this offseason.
