The Columbus Blue Jackets did well to add goaltending in Sergei Bobrovsky ahead of the draft but GM Scott Howson says his team needs more.

Rob Mixer of the Blue Jacket’s website hears from Howson about how the Jackets are “well-stocked” on goalies and how goaltending is still an issue he wants to solve. Howson says he’d like to add a goalie who can play in the NHL and wants to add a couple more pro goalies.

The Blue Jackets as it is have Bobrovsky, Steve Mason, and Allen York in net. York is in need of more seasoning in the AHL while Mason is guy who is virtually on the outs in Columbus, especially with Bobrovsky now in town.

The question now is: How does Howson go about fixing it with who is out there on the free agent market?

    Jack Campbell from Dallas in exchange for Nash. Plus some other blue chippers.

      would you care to mention those other bluechippers?

      as of now your trade looks terrible. Campbell’s stock has risen since the draft.
