Let’s be honest and call today what it really was, it was like a hand job after being promised a wonderful and magical night. Sure it was nice, but it certainly didn’t match the build up that was coming from her (her in this case being GMs). Today’s trades were better than nothing, but at the 3pm deadline, I was left wanting more.

Streetlight Manifesto has posted on their website a call to arms, a boycott of their merch and music. According to Streetlight:
Earlier this morning the Columbus Blue Jackets sent Antoine Vermette to the Phoenix Coyotes for a 2nd round pick in the 2012 NHL Draft, a 5th round selection in the 2013 Draft and goalie, Curtis McElhinney. As the struggling Blue Jackets attempt to fight their way out of last place, I doubt you will see much of a change this season but it looks like preparation for next year.
However, it seem CBJ is not the only team that is struggling to find players to stick between the pipes.
