Blue Jackets Trade Rumors 2012: Columbus Looking At Plenty Of Offers On Deadline Day

The NHL trade deadline is Monday at 3 p.m. and time is ticking down to the trading finale very quickly. The Columbus Blue Jackets have been one of the star teams in the headlines with superstar Rick Nash still on the trading block, and for trading center Jeff Carter to the Los Angeles Kings for Jack Johnson and a draft selection.

There's still plenty of possibilities for the rebuilding Blue Jackets, and Columbus Dispatch reporter Aaron Portzline reported via Twitter on Monday that the Jackets had 'more than 15' offers to consider for various players.

senior adviser Craig Patrick they have "more than 15" offers to consider on a handful of players, but "we don't like any of them yet."

Time will tell if the Carter trade ends up being the biggest move that the Jackets make during the trade deadline frenzy. Rick Nash is still the biggest name and still doesn't have a new home, but the idea that there are still more Columbus players being sought by other teams makes it all the more intriguing to see what the Blue Jackets will look like after the deadline has passed.
