Blue Jackets Need A Puck Moving Dman - How About Zubov?

from Rory Boylen of The Hockey News,

With about $10 million in cap space still available, the Jackets could turn to the trade market and target teams who are up against the cap.

Rumors suggested GM Scott Howson was in talks with San Jose about acquiring Christian Ehrhoff, but Sharks GM Doug Wilson wasn’t interested in the return of Jason Chimera. Not yet, anyway.

Tomas Kaberle of the Leafs comes to mind, but with the price GM Brian Burke is asking, I’m not sure the Jackets should go down that road. It’s not time to be so aggressive as to trade away a blue-chip prospect, so Columbus should be eyeing an option where it doesn’t have to give up a valued asset.

To me, the perfect fit is soon-to-be 39-year-old Sergei Zubov.
