Carter wants out?
TheFourthPeriod.com

It appears things can actually get worse for the Columbus Blue Jackets, as a report on RDS.ca claims center Jeff Carter would like to be traded.

According to RDS, Carter's name has been circulating around the league, despite his agent, Rick Curran, denying that his clients has asked to be moved.

The Blue Jackets, who lost 2-1 in a shootout to the Boston Bruins earlier this evening, have been very active on the trade front lately, completing two deals already this season and itching to make more.

However, a deal involving Carter appears unlikely.

Blue Jackets GM Scott Howson has been fielding calls for forwards Derick Brassard, Antoine Vermette, Sammy Pahlsson and R.J. Umberger, and defenseman Fedor Tyutin.

While a trade does not appear to be imminent, though things could change Friday, several teams have expressed an interest specifically in Brassard, who has collected two goals and two assists in 16 games.

Much attention has also been placed on the team's goaltending, however with veteran backup Curtis Sanford back in the fold, Howson appears more interested in strengthening his defensive corps than making a change between the pipes.

Last season, Howson had shopped No. 1 goalie Steve Mason, though the marketplace for such a move does not appear to exist at this point in the current season.
