Is Christian Ehrhoff A Fit In Columbus?

via Rob Mixer of BlueJackets.com,

Typically, I don't deal in the hypothetical, but since there seems to be a bit of conversation about this player, we'll take a closer look. The first thing that comes to mind is the money: can the Blue Jackets sign Christian Ehrhoff at a salary number that fits under the cap? They have $3,728,693 in salary room (according to our friends at General Fanager), and assuming a short-term deal here, the agreed-upon amount would need to be a bit lower than that to afford the Blue Jackets some wiggle room throughout the season.

Let's say they sign Ehrhoff. Where does he fit? If I'm the coach (and thankfully for everyone reading, I'm not), he goes right into my top-four and is a top pair power play quarterback. But again, this situation is probably not close to a resolution and may not be for some time. Is there mutual interest? Multiple outlets have reported that to be the case, but as my made-up saying goes, 'it takes two to tango at a reasonable price so the team has salary maneuverability in case something inevitably happens along the way.'
