So, the Bluejackets really were planning on being "buyers" for a change???

Columbus was in need of a franchise player for sure. They need to sell some tickets and people will pay to see Gaborik play. Good trade for the Blue Jackets, plus they're in the hunt for a playoff spot.
So at the beginning of the year, a lot of people were predicting NYR for the cup, (including me) then they have a hard time finding their game, Torterella and Gaborik goes at it. Gaborik gets traded. A weird turns of event.

Brassard plus others for Gaborik and his monster contract. Gotta hope the pressure away from New York brings back the monster game Gaborik had or this could be a win for New York. I dont know much about the spare parts New York picked up in this trade, but one of the players Derek Dorsett was having a good year, but has a huge injury history and currently on IR with a broken Clavicle bone. Im thinking ultimately Columbus wins this trade by gaining a franchise player, but this is good return for him based on his poor results this season.

I'm hearing it's Gaborik to CBJ
Derek Brassard, John Moore and Derek Dorsett
ETA..... as per the link below, this is apparently "pending Gaborik's approval" as well as a "trade call"?
