Conflicting Reports out of Columbus

Some conflicting reports coming out of Columbus on the potential Ranger/Blue Jacket trade front...

On the Columbus Dispatch hockey blog Puck-rakers they state...

"...Trade rumors update: We've been told that no trade between the Blue Jackets and Rangers is in the works. The two teams have talked, but nothing has been agreed upon and nothing will be announced when the roster freeze is lifted..."

However, in an article in today's Columbus Dispatch Tom Reed reports...

"...The Blue Jackets and the New York Rangers have been discussing a possible trade, an NHL source told The Dispatch yesterday, and one name mentioned has been Vyborny, an original Blue Jacket and the franchise leader in points and games...

...Contrary to reports in New York, neither Blue Jackets captain Adam Foote nor fellow defenseman Rostislav Klesla has been discussed, the source said...

...The Blue Jackets, meanwhile, are believed to have an interest in former 30-goal scorer Petr Prucha, but only as part of a package deal....

...The Blue Jackets might have an interest in several young forwards, including center Brandon Dubinsky and wingers Ryan Callahan and Nigel Dawes."

...lots of different stories going on here. The Columbus Dispatch hockey blog says there's no trade in the works, but then in today's Columbus Dispatch Sports Section they go into great detail on the potential trade. Not sure what to think.

...one thing that does worry me as President of the Nigel Dawes Fan Club is that Dawes sat last night and now I see his name mentioned in this article. I might have to go out and buy a Blue Jackets jersey.

No surpries that any team would want Brandon Dubinsky, Ryan Callahan and Nigel Dawes.
