FRIEDMAN: TEAMS 'NOT SCREWING AROUND' WHEN IT COMES TO OFFERS FOR DUBOIS

It appears the Columbus Blue Jackets have plenty of offers, and good ones, to ship Pierre-Luc Dubois out of town. Appearing on Sportsnet 960 The Fan, Elliotte Friedman stated there is plenty of interest and teams are putting forward their best offers.

"I think Columbus starts the season with him," said Friedman. "But I heard that teams are not screwing around when it comes to, you know, this guy's availability. They aren't playing games."

"I think some of the preliminary offers, I think they made Columbus aware that they could make a good deal here, when they decide to do it," Friedman added.

"I do think that some teams have made it very clear that they are not going to fool around," said Friedman. "For a young centre like that be come available, you don't want to screw around and see the player get dealt somewhere else because you're not putting your best offer on the table."

"The word I got is that the Blue Jackets considered some of the potential moves intriguing. I don't know if that mean's they are going to do it now. I just think they now know that there's a market place."



Friedman went on to say the situation hasn't really been easy for Columbus as the team was in shock that Dubois wants to be traded elsewhere. The analyst said in a previous interview that Dubois is looking for a bigger stage than the one he currently has in Ohio. Dubois has 158 points (65G, 93A) in 234 career games and seems poised to become a number one centre in the league.
