Re: Blue Jackets Trade Zherdev and Fritsche
I understand what Columbus is doing, but they were already the 2nd worst goal scoring team in the NHL (and had the 8th best GA average). That is not going to improve without Zherdev. Who is going to score the goals? There is already immense pressure on Nash to score all the goals, now it will only intensify.
One more thing to those who know hockey better than I do. Are these Defensemen the Jackets good at moving the puck? From what I have seen, the new NHL favors teams with Defensemen who move the puck (see Detroit and Anaheim two years ago), and the CBJ didn't have those guys (I'm talking about you Adam Foote...)
