Blue Jackets fire four scouts hours after the Draft

Some teams were happy with how their 2012 NHL Draft went. Some teams were content but wish things could have gone a bit better. Then there's the Columbus Blue Jackets. The Blue Jackets were so unhappy with how things went at the Draft that they fired four of their scouts hours after the Draft wrapped up.

Rick Nash and the Penguins?

Oh god. From Elliotte Friedman: Have always believed Blue Jackets GM Scott Howson's best opportunity to deal Rick Nash will be after Parise's decision.

Enough to turn down an eye-opening offer from the New York Islanders, who, according to numerous NHL sources, offered all of their picks—one in each round—for the right to move up from No. 4...

Please Stop Recruiting Rick Nash Mr. Friedman

In his latest 30 Thoughts blog post, Hockey Night in Canada's Elliotte Friedman has devoted a plethora of digital ink towards items that should pique the interest of Senators fans.
