Didn't read that article but the deal was also for Prospal to keep signing 1 year deals with Columbus until he wants to retire. Then when he retires, he would get a job in front office.

*This was before JD came along, not sure if the agreement is still in effect.
*I think it would be all up to Prospal(if he wants to get traded for a chance at a Cup, trade him, if not, don't listen to any offers). You would think he would want a chance at a Cup and at the same time, help Columbus get assets for him but with his age, not sure if he wants to be away from his family. Even if it's only for a couple of months. Also, don't think he wants make his family move again. If he is down for a trade, I would take a 2nd round pick for him. Blue Jackets keeps getting more 2013 draft picks.
