Anyhow, here are the rumours I've been hearing regarding the Jackets (there isn't much):
- Sanderson is on the block 100%. There is not much interest in him though. There is a possibility that Sanderson is waived at some point in the season, in fact.
- Daryll Sydor could be traded at some point between now and the deadline to a cup-contending team looking for defensemen.
That's about it for Jackets rumours that I've heard. Both of them I'd say could happen, but I have no idea what MacLean wants to pick up. I suspect it's not another depth defenseman though, considering Walser's good play, and him dealing off Jean-Luc Grande-Peirre.
I don't know what your sources are, but you're a Mod, so I'll trust you.
But, I would be shocked if Sanderson is waived. To the best of my knowledge, the Jackets have no money trouble and no need to cut salary. Sandy certainly has struggled, but he's showed up and worked hard every night. I would be both shocked and pissed off if he is waived.
The CBJ have a need for Sydor, but the guy is going to be valuable come March and if the offer is good enough, I'd move him.
