I agree with the premise that Bob will stay in Columbus to finish the season as there isn't another team out there which can send a goalie back who gives them a better chance for success the remainder of this season and into the playoffs. I guess when it was made known that Bob wasn't signing a new contract he gave Columbus a list of a potential trade list.
I think Columbus will trade Bob at the draft to the Florida Panthers who wasn't on your list. Bob has a home in Miami and
Would it be crazy to see Columbus trade Bob for Varlamov??
I know Bob and the Jackets haven't gotten along well lately.
Both guys are very similar number wise...both are UFAs at the end of the year and both teams still need goaltending heading into the playoffs.
So could we see a crazy player swap like this??
