I love how "karma" bit Erixon in the butt. He left hockey bed Calgary for the daddy's team just cos he could to only end up being traded to the worst organization in the NHL history.

Exactly!! Jackets' GM just guaranteed his team more drama. Howson gives hope that even we can be GM's. Dude is so freaking lost on how to save a club.

Meanwhile, Columbus is our expansion cousin. Interesting how the first faces of our franchises ended up together, eh?

I'll give this one time before I judge it
From the trade board thread, it has some kind of potential for CBJ but ehh...

Considering Erixon is going to want out as soon as he finds out he got traded to CBJ, I don't see him hitting 40+ points with them (not that he was ever going to with anyone anyway). Then you take into account the trickle-down effect working backwards with Dubinsky and Anisimov, as well as the generally less skilled players those two have to work with now, and I'd say this deal is never going to turn out well for Columbus.

I will give Columbus credit for slowly stacking their blue line over the last year but losing Vorachuk, Jeff Carter and Rick Nash for Brandon Dubinsky and a prospect pool with Cam Atkinson as their best forward prospect is as bad as it gets. As good as Dubinsky is, that's like having Devin Setoguchi as the #1 forward.

Yup. This is Erixon right now

What I don't get is how many Jackets' fans are hoping this leads to a trade for Ryan. Yeah, they have several 1st round picks in the bag and some extra defensemen, but last I checked, it'd take a major U-haul to get Ryan. You'd think Anaheim would want a top forward. What on earth does Columbus really have to offer for him?

I would imagine that he and a couple of his teammates did just that when learning they were traded to Columbus.

Columbus got ripped hard. Howson is such a failure.
