Insider Trading on TSN suggests Hextall as a possibility but probably a more likely option previously close to Davidson in St. Louis might be Jarmo Kekalainen.


IIRC he had a big hand in the draft, more or less created the Blues. He would be a great fit in Columbus compared to say JFJ.

Wonder if JD will poach Kevin MacDonald from the Blues/Riverman.

But getting Burke would be 'making the BJs relevant', no?

Hmm.

Should of done it before Nash, however they probably didn't think about it until a GM they wanted became available. Burke is now available. Makes sense


I think Burkes next gig will be in a higher profile market. Maybe Keenan, Smith or Quinn.
I love rock and roll, just put another dime in the juice box baby.

Don't think they would've gotten much more for Nash anyway. Howson is gone for more reasons than the Nash trade. Like the Wiz overpayment. And not doing any research before getting Carter.

I don't see Cbj under Davidson turning into anything but a fraud success, like Phoenix, tops.

With 3 first round picks in the upcoming draft, the new CBJ GM will have lots of options to make the team his own

Well, I hope not. That guy is a wiz in cap management.

I'm actually stoked for this. For them. As a non-Blue Jackets fan.

Howson should have been fired after his ridiculous comments during the Nash Debacle

If we don't even dump one veteran, I'll stop posting on CDC until October 7th. It's that disappointing. - Tom Sestito, June 27th.

A new era starts in Columbus.........strange timing consider they just beat the Sharks.........this is not as shocking as Burke as we knew this was expected......

One day some of us will look back on the year and look at the chicago, and most of us will realize that it was a small bump in the road to the cup
