Tim Erixon should make the Columbus Blue Jackets roster when the NHL season gets underway.
I almost stopped reading after seeing that line. Unless he abruptly becomes a AHL breakout superstar, he doesn't have any particular spot ahead of Moore or Savard... and we're still able to recall Murray once the season starts.

Replace "should" with "has a good chance to", though, and the rest of the article seems fine to me.

I just take such obsessive-compuslve issue with such statements because inevitably if they prove inaccurate, it's not remembered as "the article writer misjudged" or "the guy disappointed us all", but rather as "Columbus management screwed up, fire everybody". Each and every time.
