I am told Tyutin is not being traded, there's NO truth to the Nabokov rumors tonight and the Russell-Nikitin trade call isn't done yet.

Instead of trading for Nabby, why can't we just bring back Tugnutt and throw him in net?

Thank god... But I kinda want to see another defenseman in Columbus, without trading Wis, Methot, or Tyutin.

Any time you can add a 36-year old goalie to a 2-12-1 team going nowhere, you pretty much gotta do it.

what the hell was going down????

Eklund Hockey Buzz Eklund
Just off the phone. Some pissed off people out there right now. Suffice to say if moving Tyutin was possible, its probably less likely now.

Why are we letting this guy who signed these guys to dumb contracts now trade them for scraps?

Well, maybe the fire sale is on.

We suck right now with a cap hit of $63 mil.

We will still suck, but suck with a smaller cap hit.

We can suck one way or the other, because right now we are the suckiest sucks that ever sucked.

Wow, I always thought Hitch hated little shake................

Remember that game a couple of years ago when the Jackets won, Shake scored a goal & after the game in the presser, Hitch said something to the effect that "when Russel is your best defenseman, you're in trouble".................???

I guess Hitch hates Russians more than Shake................

Ownership and management continuing to show how poor they are at running a business. "Alright Howson, you f'cked up the team pretty bad....give it another shot" Where can I sign up to have JP and Priest run my business into the ground?

Coming in peace. Just wanted to say I am floored by this trade. Nikita Nikitin is a solid defensive defenseman but man I thought you guys could've gotten more. I have a sinking suspicion that Russel is going to do some serious damage in St. Louis, especially if he is given PP time.

Really hope you guys turn it around. Got way too many friends depressed as the song "creep" right now in Ohio because of this.

Could view this deal as "paying for" Letestu.

Realizing the quote above about a lot of pissed off people is from Eklund but I wonder if Howson had a deal lined up involving Tyutin and ownership stepped in.

Personally I would love to be rid of turnover Tyutin and his contract but I would hope he brings more than Nabakov in return. Hell throw in Vermette and Brassard and try for Tavares. Snow is about as clueless as Howson so you never know.

You mean, Tavares?

Russell was just too small to succeed.... Nothing personal, but he can't and shouldn't be playing top 4 lines on defense for any capable NHL team. I never bought the MacLean Spin tactics about "the next Niedermeyer" or whatever it was, Rafalski?

I glad we got something for him, but I'll tell you, this trade doesn't have the look of a desperate GM on his last bit of goodwill with his bosses....


This looks like a typical Howson move, which really worries me....

Another brilliant Howson move. Trade one dud for another. Problem solved.
