Blue Jackets quietly shopping

Monday night's offensive outburst was welcomed with opened arms, but that won't stop Blue Jackets GM Scott Howson from looking around for some extra fire power up front.

The Blue Jackets are scouring the League for a top-six forward, though it's unclear what they're willing to part with.

Nineteen scouts from 17 different teams took in last night's 6-2 win over the San Jose Sharks at Nationwide Arena, fueling speculation.

However, with the Blue Jackets on the road for the next 15 days, most were there to keep a close eye on the team.

Columbus has three first-round draft picks in this summer's NHL Draft -- their own, Los Angeles' and the New York Rangers' pick -- and could dangle the two latter ones for some in the scoring department.

According to Elliott Friedman of CBC, Blue Jackets center Derick Brassard's name has popped up around the NHL again.

Brassard, who leads all Blue Jackets forwards with seven points, was nearly traded last season, but after the team made a coaching change, trade talks stopped. They appear to have picked up again.

Defenseman Fedor Tyutin, the team's leading scorer with 10 points, was also shopped last season, and could be on the move this year, although he owns a no-movement clause and would likely need to approve any deal the team makes.
