Team(s) Interested: Columbus Blue Jackets- The Blue Jackets are off to not a great start. With only 1 win in 11 games, nothing at all is going right for Columbus. Vinny Prospal (10 Points) and Rick Nash (9 Points) are the only ones actually contributing so far. A big problem for Columbus is their goaltending. Steve Mason has the lone win for the franchise, but he is inconsistent and can’t be relied on to save the team.  The only goaltender that could challenge Mason for playing time, Mark Dekanich, is recovering from an ankle injury. Curtis Sanford had been filling in as the Blue Jackets backup goaltender, but he’s also out with a groin injury. Eric Francis of CBC reports UFA goalie Marty Turco is still working out and would be willing to play as a backup, and that Columbus could bring him in.Turco, who most recently played with the Chicago Blackhawks, would be brought in to help mentor the struggling Mason, and hopefully win some games in the process.

About The Author

Steven took a different route towards his hockey interests. Starting out as a big Habs fan, he started to gravitate towards the more obscure levels of hockey, such as the low level tournaments in Asia, strange club matches between teams most people in North America can’t pronounce, and even some 3am contests between Bulgaria and New Zealand. Aside from his love for strange hockey events, Steven occasionally acts as a mediocre ball hockey goalie following a failed attempt at making it to the NHL as a fourth line house league grinder. Beyond hockey, Steven is an avid racing fan and loves to chat about NASCAR, F1, Indycar, you name it. Oh, and don’t get him started on music. That is, unless you want the whole history of metal and a guitar lesson. Currently, Steven is a credentialed media member with the Mississauga Steelheads of the OHL, as well as with the Oakville Blades of the OJHL. Steven has also hosted the television show "The Hockey House" on TVCogeco in Ontario, as well as a segment under the same with on LeafsTV in Toronto. Home page:
