Columbus to continue to shop Hartnell, Tyutin
TheFourthPeriod.com

The Columbus Blue Jackets are expected to be fairly active this off-season, as they look to tinker with their roster and get back into the playoffs in 2016-17.

During the season, the Blue Jackets tried to trade veteran forward Scott Hartnell and defenseman Fedor Tyutin, but came up empty.

Both players own no-movement clauses in their contracts, but can list a certain amount of teams they would accept a trade to. Neither player was moved.

However, according to the Columbus Dispatch, the Blue Jackets are "they figured to try again (and shop Hartnell and Tyutin) this summer."

The paper notes that the potential implementation of an expansion draft next season could present some roster limitations for Columbus, and as a result, trading one or both of Hartnell or Tyutin could help protect other assets on the club.

The Nashville Predators were most connected to Hartnell, and it's possible the Blue Jackets revisit those talks this off-season.
