Goalie Wire – Columbus

September 29, 2006

This one wasn’t on my radar.  But Ty Conklin was waived by the Columbus Blue Jackets today.  They’ve elected to go with Fredrik Norrena as back-up to Pascal Leclaire today.

Conklin has shown brilliance at some points, but faltered more often than not.  Which resulted in Edmonton going out and getting Roloson at the trade deadline.  The rest they say is history.

I wouldn’t expect Nonis to move on Conklin.  I think he would have seen enough of him last year to know that he’s not what this team needs as far as depth in goal.
