With the Philadelphia Flyers scooping up Vincent Lecavalier on Tuesday, Nathan Horton now becomes arguably the top winger available on the free-agent market.
Horton opted not to return to the Bruins after three seasons in Boston, and it has not taken long for teams to come calling.
Horton was in Columbus on Wednesday to meet with the Blue Jackets, his agent confirmed to The Columbus...
Boston Bruins general manager Peter Chiarellie reached an agreement on a blockbuster trade with the Dallas Stars on Thursday. After falling just short of a second Stanley Cup championship in three years, Chiarellie decided to clear cap space and bring in one of the game’s more
Jarmo Kekalainen and John Davidson broke out their big boy bait and tackle and landed one of the big fish of the summer free agent feeding frenzy agreeing to terms with Nathan Horton on a seven-year, $37.1MM ($5.3MM AAV) contract. The move addresses the Jackets glaring lack of goal scoring and signals that Columbus was not fooled by this past season's playoff surge.
from Michael Arace of the Columbus Dispatch,
Yet, this being Day 1, there is inherent risk. Horton has suffered two severe concussions, both from hits delivered by former Jackets. Aaron Rome knocked Horton out of the Stanley Cup Finals in 2011. The following January, Tom Sestito hit Horton and Horton missed the rest of the season. This past spring, Horton suffered a separated...
Nathan Horton is now officially gone. The Columbus Blue Jackets have annouced they signed Horton to a seven year deal.
Holy **** that's a long term contract.
Nathan Horton's deal with CBJ is 7 years, $37.1 ($5.3 AAV) but he gets $30M in first 5 years.

Not an awful AAV, though. The contract length might kill...
Word is the Blue Jackets have been positioning money because they have their heart set on two players....Valteri Filppula and Nathan Horton. It has been widely reported that Horton visited Columbus yesterday and Filppula played for gm Jarmo Kekalainen during the lockout.
I have been reporting for some time the jackets were priming to make a it splash....this appears to be it....

Columbus, Ohio Another piece to the puzzle in Columbus was added during the first day of NHL Free Agency.
The newest player to don the Union Blue is forward Nathan Horton, formerly of the Boston Bruins. Horton, who signed a 7 year37.1 million deal today, comes to the Blue Jackets as a proven power-forward with 43 games of NHL playoffs experience...
So much for taking it easy on the Fourth of July.
While most Bostonians were lounging by the beach or hanging out at a cookout with a cold one, Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli and Co. were busy engineering the biggest blockbuster trade of the NHL offseason thus far.
That deal sent Tyler Seguin, once considered the key to the B’s future, and third-line grinder Rich Peverley to...
from Bob Hunter of the Columbus Dispatch,
John Davidson watched four hockey reporters discuss various free agent signings on Canada’s TSN network on Friday. The Blue Jackets’ signing of Boston Bruins’ free agent forward Nathan Horton came up and the Jackets’ president of hockey operations blew a gasket.
“They asked about the good ones and the bad ones, and ( Toronto...
Tyler Seguin may be on his way out of Boston.
With just eight points during the Bruins’ playoff run, it’s no secret that Seguin’s production was a disappointment. After the run, general manager Peter Chiarelli said the 21-year-old had to “become more of a professional,” as it was revealed Seguin’s name came up in deadline trade talks.
Now according to multiple reports...
Boston Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli announced Friday that the club has signed forward Jarome Iginla to a one year contract through the 2013-14 season. Iginla’s base salary is worth $1,800,000 and carries incentives of $4,200,000, for an annual cap figure of $6,000,000. “It’s a
Less than a week after Peter Chiarelli called out Tyler Seguin for not being professional enough, the Bruins have traded Seguin along with Rich Peverley and Ryan Button to the Dallas Stars in return for Loui Eriksson and three prospects. The move provides the Bruins with some cap relief and they get one of the league’s most underrated players as well.
Eriksson has netted 70+...
Huge trade in the works. Boston and Dallas close on a deal sending Tyler Seguin to Stars for Loui Eriksson. Other parts involved as well.

Goalie Tuukka Rask will almost certainly be back with the Bruins in 2013-14, but his backup will not.
Anton Khudobin signed a one-year deal with the Carolina Hurricanes worth $800,000 on Friday, ending his successful stint as Boston’s second-stringer.
Despite appearing in just seven career games prior to this season, Khudobin was a pleasant surprise for the Bruins. The 27-year...
