What trade chips do the Columbus Blue Jackets have to trade if they decide to go all-in?
The Columbus Blue Jackets are in a precarious position heading into the 2018-2019 season. With uncertainty surrounding Artemi Panarin and Sergei Bobrovsky, the team can go in one of many directions. They could either blow up and start shipping away these guys or look to add players for a Stanley Cup push.
Either way the team is going to need to be prepared to trade some guys that we may not be thinking about. Artemi and Bob are obvious trade chips if it all goes downhill and they refuse to sign with the Jackets. But down the roster and in the prospect pipeline there are plenty of trade chips that have high value.
Jarmo has proven time and time again he isn’t afraid to make big deals with big time players so no player, unless they have a no trade clause, is safe. Lets look at three Columbus Blue Jackets that could be trade chips if the Jackets decide to go for it all this year.
