from Elliotte Friedman of CBC, • Those Fedor Tyutin/Evgeni Nabokov trade rumours were insane. Tyutin’s part of the solution, not the problem, in Columbus. Here’s what happened. After Thursday’s loss to Chicago, the team asked Tyutin and Kris Russell to stick around. We all know now Russell was traded, so somebody assumed Tyutin was gone, too. The Blue Jackets actually asked Tyutin to stay in case they needed to talk to Nikita Nikitin, who they got for Russell. Nikitin doesn’t speak much English. • Word is that Nabokov has not been asked to lift his no-move clause. And Garth Snow told Hotstover Eric Francis that there isn’t a lot of interest. I still think the Islanders want this three-headed goalie monster to go away. • One NHL GM: “There are a lot of us who don’t like our teams.” It’s hard to make trades, though, with so many not wishing to add salary. Will be interesting to see what happens when all of them are together for meetings Tuesday. • Curious to see if anyone at the GM
