    Report: Josh Anderson Requests Trade from CBJ

    Josh Anderson, who remains unsigned eight days before the Columbus Blue Jackets begin their regular season, has requested a trade from the NHL club.

    Anderson, an improving player who took a big step last season, was expected to be an important piece in the teamís plans for 2017-18. The Blue Jackets worked hard to avoid exposing him in the NHL Expansion Draft and itís believed they rejected Coloradoís requests to include him in any Matt Duchene trade.

    But negotiations have been difficult. Anderson is a restricted free agent. On Tuesday, The Athleticís Aaron Portzline reported the team and player were ďas little as $150,000 per year (apart) on a three-year contract ó but both sides are standing firm on principle.Ē

    Andersonís agent, Darren Ferris, said via text he would not comment. Through a team spokesman, Columbus president of hockey operations John Davidson and general janager Jarmo Kekalainen also declined to comment.

    ó

    Update:

    Kekalainen also denied the trade request to The Athleticís Aaron Portzline and TSNís Pierre LeBrun.

    Several hours after publishing his initial report online, Friedman appeared on Torontoís Sportsnet 590 and had the opportunity to expand on his thoughts.

    ďI should stress it didnít come directly from Andersonís camp,Ē began Friedman. ďI heard about it. I was working on it. The agent just sent me a text saying he wasnít going to talk about it. Initially the team, I sent a note through their communications staff saying I was hearing it, would anybody talk about it. Initially they didnít. And then after I wrote the piece they came back and said thatís not our information and besides, weíre not looking to trade him.

    ďSo I think itís possible thereís a bit of a semantics issue. One thing I do believe is that a sign and trade came up, and that maybe youíd sign him and then trade him. So thatís probably the answer to the gray area here.

    That's crazy over payment IMO. A pick and player is the most I'd offer, then again Sakic is off his rocker.

    I dunno Josh. You're talking about a 22 y/o 6'3" 225lb righty who scored 17G last year and a quality 23 y/o dman, both cost-controled. Plus a 1st, in what projects to be a strong draft, for a team that needs to rebuild.

    Considering how shitty things look in Colorado currently, Sakic should be fired if he doesn't take that trade or at least use it to get his best offer. He needs to trade the guy ASAP. He has had multiple bidders since the draft and he is still trying to rip someone off.

    @FriedgeHNIC: Hearing Josh Anderson is going to take the three-year deal in CLB and sign. $1.85M AAV. End of the day, players want to play.
