Is this the end of Jared Boll in Columbus?

Still feel there is a need for Boll but gives some insurance if one is injured or out on a 5 for fighting penalty.

Giving a player an extension based on 52 NHL Games?

Fire Howson.

That was my first thought. Boll had a sophomore slump, for sure, but every vibe I'm getting is that Dorsett is the number one guy for that role now.

Moving Boll could help with a little cap relief.

Subtracting Boll and adding Babchuk for, say, $1.5 million isn't a huge increase in salary.

I wouldn't be concerned. Certainly his contract is going to be a bit more complicated and he also has a bit more negotiating power than Dorsett or Brassard.

Hitch still loves Boll, and you don't give up on a young guy after a sophomore slump. I think this is Boll's year to prove he belongs.

However

If Howson gets an offer that he can't refuse that includes Boll, he is gone. That is a no brainer.

Not a Blue Jackets fan (I mean, I don't wish them any ill will, or anything, in fact I was rooting for them to get into the playoffs and upset Detroit, they're just not a team I follow avidly), but I am a fan of Dorsett. There was one playoff game against Detroit when I felt like Dorsett was the best guy on the ice: fast, aggressive and drives to the nut like crazy.

It's not about giving up on him. But if you have someone better fit for the job, why not shed the extra salary?

If Dorsett can't convert to center, who do you sit before Boll? Modin, Torres, Chimera, or Dorsett? That's also not factoring in Picard, Murray, etc.

I can't wait to see how it shakes out with Dorsett, Boll, and Murray on a line. I swear I remember seeing this a few times last year and it was so much energy and physicality. Exciting to watch.

I, for one, am excited. I just love the energy that Dorsett plays with.

No, no, and no

I would have just said no once but it got rejected for too few characters

I am not sure why people are extrapolating that this is the end of Boll. We have room for both of them on our team. Imagine how nasty Torres-Dorsett-Boll would be? People would HATE us...and I would LOVE it

IIRC, while Hitch did mention Boll was in an obvious slump, he has always had very high praise for Jared. I remember it being more so than I personally thought Boll deserved at the point in time in which the comment was made.


As mentioned above, I'd be very surprised in we didn't make room for consistent shifts with both of them.


Congrats to Dorsett. He adds a dynamic to the lineup that every team wishes they had.

Good for Dorsett. He earned it in the playoffs.

I agree. I don't see this as the end of Boll at all. Dorsett has more skill and is more of an agitator/pest, while Boll is more of a middleweight heavyweight guy whose only there to hit and fight. DD earned this contract with his playoffs last year. Glad to see he will be a part of this team for the next few years.
