As desperate as the kings are, I'd think Columbus could do better than jmfj

Based on the stories from Philly I'm not sure LA would want to reunite Carter and Richards in the playground that is Los Angeles

Interesting. While Jack Johnson has been somewhat overrated in past years, he's on the upswing and hitting his prime and living up to his past billing now. Giving him and a #1 for Jeff Carter would be really desperate move on the Kings' part to get some potential scoring on their roster. Carter is way too erratic and has a very questionable compete level to give up that package for him, IMO.

The Blue Jackets have to have a deal working for a goalie for Nash. I'm going to say Boston for some odd reason.

Whoever the Jackets deal Nash for, they'll have to get a legit top-line young forward and a goaltender.

Not that it would happen, but something like:

- JVR + Bobrovsky
- Krejci + Rask
- Brown + Bernier
- Martin + Johnson

I have to agree, reuniting Richards and Carter in LA could be disaster

Couturier was part of the Carter deal? :shock:

Jack Johnson and a 1st for Jeff Carter looks like an awesome trade for CBJ to me.

Carter never wanted to be there and doesn't bring it on a consistent basis and is badly miscast as center to begin with. Jack Johnson is climbing up in the ranks of very good NHL dmen and starting to reach his high potential. Throw in a 1st rounder and how does Columbus lose on this trade?

Trying to watch the Howson press conference, but the feed cut out...

Should've expected that from the Blue Jackets.
