Would Columbus Be A Fit For Souray?

from Aaron Portzline of Puck-rakers,

The Dispatch has learned that there have been internal conversations within the Blue Jackets about trading for Souray, a three-time All-Star with record-setting power play ability and one of the most fear slap shots in the NHL.

The likely candidate to be traded by Columbus would be Mike Commodore, the club’s highest- paid defenseman.

To be clear, there is no deal on the table between the Blue Jackets and Oilers. If there have been talks between Blue Jackets GM Scott Howson and Oilers GM Steve Tambellini, they have not been extensive or specific, The Dispatch has been told.

This trade idea (Commodore-Souray) has been bouncing around on HFBoards since April. I like it, but I’d be happier if we got him off reentry waivers.

hmm, having both commodore and souray would be great, sure ... but if there’s a choice between those two, it’s a fairly easy one, right?

I’m still salty about Commodores lack of conditioning last year.  He came here under the impression he would be a leader, that’s what he wanted, that’s why he came.  Then he comes here, makes the playoffs, stars align and the jackets are starting to look like a respectable hockey team and Commie and couple others just pooped the bed, in a big way, the next year.  With Souray you know what you’re gettin’, all he needs is a pat ont he back and a home visit with management to keep him happy, seems easy enough.

yea, you’re also gettin a player with health issues instead of one with conditioning issues.
but still, souray should be an upgrade over commodore, no matter how you compare those two.
