Blue Jackets Trade Rumors: Columbus Ship Samuel Pahlsson To Vancouver For Picks

Rick Nash is still a Columbus Blue Jacket but he might not recognize the team by the time the trade deadline is over at the rate that the Blue Jackets are losing players. After shipping out Jeff Carter the other day to the Los Angeles Kings for Jack Johnson, the Jackets have made another trade as the deadline starts to loom nearer.

Monday the Jackets shipped off center Samuel Pahlsson to the Vancouver Canucks. Pahlsson was a -6 so far this season with only 11 points to his name, playing as a lower line center.

The Blue Jackets received two fourth round draft picks in exchange for Pahlsson, adding to the stockpile of draft picks and players that the Jackets seem to be stockpiling as the trade deadline goes along. They'll get even more if Rick Nash ever leaves the team, but at the rate that talks seem to be going it might not happen.

The trade deadline will hit at 3 p.m. Eastern time on Monday.
