Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Aaron Portzline of Puck-rakers at the Columbus Dispatch,
—Believe it or not, Manny Malhotra represented the Blue Jackets in Chicago at the NHLPA meeting on Saturday. This is strange, because Malhotra is no longer under contract with the Blue Jackets and has virtually no chance of returning to Columbus, which signed free agent Sammy Pahlsson over the summer. Still, the Blue Jackets have not congregated to elect a new representative, and, hey, Malhotra has lots of time on his hands these days. He remains unsigned, although Atlanta and Florida are believed to have been interested. Malhotra has been skating, both in Columbus and Vancouver, where his wife’s family resides.
—Talked to Michael Peca today. He’s still unsigned, too, but said he’s had inquiries from a handful of clubs, all in the Eastern Conference. Nothing is close, he said, but it could happen at anytime. He has no plans to retire, he said.
more Blue Jackets talk…
