Meanwhile Lack is in the minors. Throw in the cap problems lurking and that is a fiasco. At least to us uninformed Blue Jacket fans.
This was a media and fan driven conclusion.

Gillis and AV have both constantly stated; we have two great goalies and they'll both play and continue to play if they are exceptional.

The actual quote from AV when asked who the number one goalie is, "Whoever is in net that night."

Either way, I understand a goalie isn't what Columbus is looking for but I think value wise it's a lot closer than to be made out here.

EDIT: (Not the original offer, but Schneider, Ballard, 2nd for Bobrovsky, Johansen)
