The day after Pierre-Luc Dubois’s bank became the NHL’s talking point, Columbus Blue Jackets general manager Jarmo Kekalainen aggressively pursued the trade with its unfortunate center, believing there would be deals as early as Saturday morning could

According to multiple sources, the Winnipeg Jets package includes two of its own players who have asked for trades – Patrik Laine and Jack Roslovic (unsigned Roslovic is from Columbus) Anaheim is said to have significantly expanded its offerings, which include Calgary and Montreal to the other interested parties, and there is no doubt more (as I write this it does not assume Canadians are ready to involve Nick Suzuki, although what is true now may not be true in 10 minutes)

The Blue Jackets are hosting Tampa Bay on Saturday afternoon, but even if a move isn’t complete, Dubois is unlikely to be on the line-up
