Columbus Blue Jackets: Breaking Down the Team's Goaltending

Heading into the offseason, it was clear that the Columbus Blue Jackets were in need of an upgrade at the goaltending position.

With top names like Boston's Tuukka Rask, Buffalo's Jhonas Enroth, and Vancouver's Cory Schneider among the available free-agent goaltenders this summer, Columbus had a golden opportunity to solidify their play in goal.

However, the Jackets surprised a lot of people when they dealt for Philadelphia Flyers' backup Sergei Bobrovsky before the 2012 NHL Entry Draft.

Bobrovsky struggled last season behind Ilya Bryzgalov and there is a lot of question as to whether or not he can handle the starting role in Columbus.

With "Bob" and Mason as the team's goaltenders, as well as youngster Allen York, the Jackets still find themselves in the bottom of the goaltending power rankings.

The front office may have realized that as well as there is still some talk that the team may not be done dealing before training camp, but more on that later.

So let's take a look at what the Jackets have to offer next season in net, as well as who could still be on their way to Columbus.
