4 Columbus Blue Jackets That Could Be on the Trading Block

With a record of 2-9-1, it is clear that the Columbus Blue Jackets could use some shaking up.

It was reported by the Columbus Dispatch earlier this week that both head coach Scott Arniel and general manager Scott Howson could be handed their pink slips sooner than anticipated if things do not pick up.

Former head coach Ken Hitchcock, who is still currently on the Columbus payroll, was said to be contacted about possibly taking over control behind the Columbus bench, as was former Calgary Flames GM Craig Button.

When asked about the rumors, Button went to his Twitter account to say that the Jackets had yet to contact him.

As the Blue Jackets may be looking to change up their staff soon, they may also be looking to do the same with some of their players.

If the team continues to struggle, Columbus may begin to field calls from those contending teams who are looking for some help in their chase for the Cup.

CBC Sports reported that there were a total of 25 scouts at one of the Blue Jackets' games last week and that the move of one of the team's centers is a possibility.

If times do not change, these four players could be on the move.
