Columbus Blue Jackets GM Jarmo Kekalainen joins Jeff and Elliotte (11:50) to discuss how and when the trade with the Winnipeg Jets came together, why Jack Roslovic was an important piece, the possible misconception about Columbus as an organization and community, and how the club tried to move up in the 2016 draft to select Patrik Laine.
The guys also talk about Vancouver’s struggles (51:00), Brent Burns’ silky mitts (54:00), youthful flair in New Jersey (57:45), ideas around the draft (1:07:10), the NHL suspending John Chayka (1:00:30) and much more.
We also pay tribute to the late George Armstrong (1:11:40). Condolences to his friends and family.
