Could the Blue Jackets trade Gaborik?

The second crossroads will come with the NHL trade deadline on March 5. Only four regular-season games will have been played after the Olympic break, so the Blue Jackets will need to have determined whether Gaborik’s style of play meshes with the rest of the roster.

The Blue Jackets and Gaborik have had no contract talks to date, and there have been no indications they are interested in signing him to an extension.

General manager Jarmo Kekalainen would not comment, but it’s possible Gaborik, if healthy, could be traded at a second straight deadline.

The next two months will be interesting.

“The situation is going to take care of itself one way or the other,” Gaborik said. “I like it here. I really like the guys and the city. But I’m just going day-to-day right now and focusing on getting healthy.”
