Ilya Mikheyev Posted July 27, 2015 Share Posted July 27, 2015 Ehrhoff’s agent, Rick Curran, told PHT in an email that the 33-year-old unrestricted free agent “doesn’t mind having the flexibility of a single year commitment. He’s confident in his ability to provide a valued role to the right team. If there’s a mutual fit, an extension will likely follow.” NBC Sports. Sources have told The Dispatch that the Blue Jackets and free agent defenseman Christian Ehrhoff have had discussions, and that a deal could come together if Ehrhoff sits on the market long enough for his price to come down. Put another way: if Ehrhoff stays jobless long enough to get nervous, he could significantly lower his asking price to make sure he has a chair when the music stops. It only makes sense that the Blue Jackets would have interest in Ehrhoff, despite the fact that injuries limited him to 49 games last season with Pittsburgh. He's a power-play defenseman, which the Blue Jackets appear to need, especially following the trade of James Wisniewski last March.
