Rumour- RJ Umberger requests trade

Recommended Posts

I actually thought about this for a while.

Umberger has negative value. So adding him in the deal should sweeten a deal for Kesler alone.

To Columbus


2nd in 2014 (36th)

To Vancouver


1st in 2015

1st in 2014

Umberger (negative value )

Is Columbus on his list of preferred destinations. I think he would do well there. they are on the way up. CLB, STL, ANA all quality teams for Kes with some assets that would benefit Canucks.

"Sources have told The Dispatch that R.J. Umbergers end-of-season meeting with Blue Jackets management and coaches ended with a mutual agreement that Umberger would go on the trading block this summer."

"Umberger, who is signed through the 2016-17 season at a $4.6 million salary-cap hit, has a no-trade clause in his contract through June 14. On June 15, the full no-trade clause becomes a limited clause, and Umberger will provide the Blue Jackets with 10 NHL clubs to which he would not approve a trade.That would leave 19 teams.

Umberger was angered and hurt late in the regular season when he was made a healthy scratch four times in a seven-game stretch while the Blue Jackets were fighting for a spot in the Stanley Cup playoffs."
