The NHL trade deadline is just a few days away, and several big moves have already been made. One move made on Wednesday morning involved the Columbus Blue Jackets trading away Vladislav Gavrikov and Joonas Korpisalo to the Los Angeles Kings in exchange for Jonathan Quick and and a pair of draft picks. Amid another rough season, the Blue Jackets are pushing themselves further towards a rebuild.
While everyone will pay attention to Gavrikov, who was one of the top trade targets on the market, the Blue Jackets may not be done with their wheeling and dealing. In fact, it looks like Quick, who was only recently picked up in this deal, may not be sticking around with Columbus very long, as the team will now begin exploring trade options for the veteran goalkeeper before the deadline strikes.
