Found November 19, 2011 on Kukla's Korner:
from Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun, • You gotta give Columbus GM Scott Howson credit: He hasn’t stopped working the phones and trying to unload money instead of firing Arniel. While canning Arniel might satisfy a few people, Howson is still trying to move C Derick Brassard, C Antoine Vermette and G Steve Mason for whatever the organization can get. There’s actually significant interest in Vermette and he may actually get a ticket out of this mess. The Jackets need a goalie because Mason’s play has been miserable. • What is Maple Leafs GM Brian Burke going to do to stop the bleeding in net? He can’t sit around and let the season slip away and he’s trying to address the club’s need for goaltending. Here are the names of goalies I’m told are available: Jonathan Bernier (Los Angeles), Scott Clemmensen (Florida), Chris Mason (Winnipeg) and Anders Lindback (Nashville). Lindback is on the list because he’s not going to be kept with G Pekka Rinne signed to a seven-year, $49-million cont...

Five and a half year losing streak ended

Only Rick Nash could fully appreciate the Blue Jackets' 4-3 overtime win over Nashville on Saturday, because only Nash had endured the entirety of the misery. The Blue Jackets had lost 17 straight games -- 0-12-5 -- in Nashville before defenseman James Wisniewski scored on a slap shot from the blue line at 2:43 of overtime. "It's a weird feeling in here," Nash...

"I haven't talked with one single person from RDS (the Canadian media outlet that made the initial report," Carter told the Columbus Dispatch. "I don't know where they came up with that. I haven't said anything or asked for anything...

Aaron Musick: If Carter truly asked for a trade...

If the rumors are true and Jeff Carter truly has asked for a trade, the Avalanche should definitely jump in. With a stretch in the last ten of 2-7-1 the Avs could use a jolt and Jeff Carter could truly be a kick in the pants to the Avs. He's a bigger center who has a great shot, can run a powerplay and will score. All he needs is someone to get him the puck. Pair him with...

HockeyBuzz Hotstove: Hotstove, Ed. 34: Trading Jeff Carter?

Welcome to the Hotstove! As always, I'm your host, Travis Yost. When RDS and other outlets broke news about Jeff Carter - allegedly - wanting out of Columbus, the hockey world went wild. Carter, an enigmatic and mercurial talent, has long been a polarizing hockey player in today's National Hockey League. A guy that can score with the best of 'em, but can also frustrate...

Eklund: Rumor. Montreal serious Interest in Jeff Carter, LA Kings Also? Boston?

There have been many ex-Flyers who find there way to the Canadians, but this one may be the most intriguing to date. The fact is the Canadiens have spent a great deal of time scouting Philly, and there is no secret they know the players more than most.. While I still have yet to confirm Carter has asked for a trade, I do know he would probably accept one to certain cities...and...

Afternoon Line

After having watched him play another uninspired game for the Columbus Blue Jackets, I can’t help but think that a trade would be beneficial for both player and club. Let’s face it. The ship has sailed on Columbus. Their season is already over. With just under 20 games played, they are on pace for less than 15 wins for the season. -Mike Milbury on Rich Nash of the Columbus Blue...
