Columbus Blue Jackets Fans React To R.J. Umberger Trade

The day Columbus Blue Jackets fans having been waiting for since the end of the season is here: they traded R.J. Umberger. The Jackets announced today that Umberger will be going to the Philadelphia Flyers in exchange for Scott Hartnell and a pick in the 2015 NHL entry draft. The trade has been met with mixed emotions from fans, as Umberger, a former OSU hockey player, was seen as a hometown boy and loved by many fans. Others, however, thought Umberger’s $4.6 million salary could be better spent on a more productive player. With that, here are the fan reactions we received on twitter:
