Portzline shot down Umby moving in Puck-Rakers earlier today.

You may have read in today's Dispatch that the Penguins have an interest in Blue Jackets forward R.J. Umberger. If I were a Blue Jackets fan, I would not worry about Umberger being traded for a minute. As noted in the NHL Sunday notebook. Umberger's value to the Blue Jackets is beyond his ability on the ice. He's become the conscience of the club, on a club that has too few leaders. The asking price for the Blue Jackets would be too steep. All you Umberger fans, rest easy.
If we did move Tico, anybody think he might be a rental to the Pens & consider signing with us again after the season, or would that irk him to the point of signing elsewhere?
