Show off hands if you would rather see Siebenaler in over JJ....

Seeing that we only have our 1st, BUF 4th, our 5th, our 7th and VGK 7th, I'm guessing the condition is Columbus gets the lower of the two 7th rounders?

Tell me this happened because a guy like Prow is getting the call and they need to shore up down there? One can simply dream.

It's obviously not true because Ruhwedel is still sitting there without an ounce of game action since who knows when. Well before Christmas, WELL before. Ruhwedel would play before Prow.

He's only played 40 games combined in the last two seasons in the AHL. So either he's been hurt all the time or he's eating nachos in the press box at the AHL level. Either way he doesn't seem like a guy who's going to play in the NHL anytime soon.

According to DK Pittsburgh Sports he has to play 10 games for the Penguins in order for the Blue Jackets to receive any compensation. In other words we likely got him for nothing.

10 games with Pens gets CBJ a 7th.

CBJ could be just opening another roster spot. I think this puts them at 47 of the 50 contract limit?

He is supposed to be a great skater. Could turn out to be more than WBS depth. Maybe this means another trade is coming.

More than likely when Schultz returns, we'll send down Ruhwedel. Fine and dandy if he clears waivers but if he doesn't, we now have a replacement for WB-S. We'll get our 7th pick back.

when I saw the conditional pick was wondering what the condition was but now that I see it, its basically a free depth player, most likely in AHL.

Clearly stockpiling bottom paring AHLers to package for a #5 AHLer.
