So, the Columbus BJs blog, Puck-Rakers has some interesting tidbits:
Howson hopes to have a big day today, but this isn't the only day left to "add significant pieces" to the roster, he said.
Case in point, the New York Rangers. If they sign center Mats Sundin in free agency, that'll give them Sundin, Scott Gomez, Chris Drury and Brandon Dubinsky (an emerging talent) down the middle. Well, something's got to give there.
Also, to the matter of Nikita Filatov's contract in Russia ... Meehan said he has physical proof of Filatov's 30-day notice to the Russian Hockey Federation that he wishes to terminate his employment. The Blue Jackets and the NHL have proof, too, and the NHL has gone so far as to verify its legality.
"There's no issue," Meehan said.
Didn't realize there was now a 30-day out for the Russians.
I don't know, since being drafted Brule hasn't shown much on some pretty weak BJ teams. Yeah he's full of potential but I think the Jackets want the playoffs this year and Torres helps them with that.
Yea but he is 21...........Torres is what he is at 26.........and that is a real good player..........Jackets with Umberger and Torres are starting to develop some secondary scoring and others are rumored
Man their is alot of parity in this league......so many teams have a shot at sneaking in the playoffs
