The start to NHL free agency was not very spectacular for the Columbus Blue Jackets and their fans this year. There were no big signings like last year, but no heartbreaking losses either. They did lose a few players, and trade for some new ones as well. With that said, here are the fan reactions we received from Twitter:The ongoing theme among the fans is that this is a chance for the young players to step it up within the franchise, and for the management to see just how much depth their club really has. Although there could still be some deals that haven’t happened yet, it seems like this year’s free agency will be more about out with the old than in with the new, and that seems to be a good strategy for GM Jarmo Kekalainen and his club.
Thank you to everyone who sent us your reactions, we look forward to hearing even more from you!
