Jackets Claim Ethan Moreau Off Waivers

The Columbus Blue Jackets have claimed Ethan Moreau off waivers from the Edmonton Oilers. Our Jackets blog, The Cannon, has reaction:

... this is a great move. Look at the positives:

- He's a veteran leader, wearing the "C" in Edmonton last season. With a team as young as Columbus, he will be a huge asset in the locker room.

- He's in the final year of his contract, which is paying him only 1.75 mil. It's a 2 mil cap hit.

- In a checking role, he won't be relied on for offense, and he could focus on shutting down opposition forwards.

Check The Cannon for more. Our Oilers blog, The Copper & Blue, also has reaction, albeit quite succinct.
