More Columbus trade rumours :/

I think Steve Mason is 3-12-1 or something. Not very good considering he is an NHL goaltender….among other things. Rumors have been circulating that the Jackets have shown interest in Jonathan Bernier from LA, but their asking price is Ryan Johansen….a price too high for Howsen.

What could you see happen?

To Columbus:
Jaroslav Halak

To St. Louis
R.J. Umberger
(Would Umberger not be a great fit in St. Louis?)

To Columbus
Jonas Hiller
Cam Fowler

To Anaheim
Ryan Johansen
2nd round pick in 2012

Anaheim then trades F Niklas Hagman and their own 2nd round pick to Colorado for G Semyon Varlamov and D Jan Hejda
(Because apparently J.S. Giguere is still a starting goaltender)
It is sometimes challenging to trade players without the domino effect (:

    Why would St. Louis do that? Where does that leave them for goalies? Plus they have enough top 6 forwards on that team as it is, and don't need to pick one up that's vastly underperforming this year.

    And WAY too much going to CLB. Again, Anaheim has nothing left in net, and Fowler is the future for the blueline on that team, not to mention he put up 40 points as a rookie, and is on pace to do it again on a struggling team. I love Johansen, but wow.

    You just screwed up big time here. St.Louis is not giving up on Halak and Anaheim is not giving up on Hiller. Also there is no way Colorado flips Varlamov for Hagman (who was waived) and a 2nd.

    Seriously man, you totally missed with that one.

    Does St Louis not have Elliot? hes been one of the best thus far…best GAA best save %

    so? wasn't Elliot doing extremely well in Ottawa once upon a time? Even if it was the time for St.Louis to choose which goalie they will trade and which they will keep (it isn't), I doubt St.Louis would trade Halak for Umberger.
