Blue Jackets Center Trade Cannot Come at Expense of the Future

We’ve written ad nauseam about this version of the rebuild for the Jackets, and how it has to go right for the future of this franchise (and, most notably, their management staff). I think we can all agree that in order for this team to take the next step and become a playoff contender again, they need to add two top-six centers to the mix.

With that said, I think the most important thing that we can do here is to be patient. One of the issues that has plagued this franchise for its entire existence, is the need to improve immediately and get this team to compete for a playoff spot.
