We may have our answer as to which piece the Jackets are looking to move, if rumors are correct. If you take a step back, look at the situation and all of the pieces involved, Andrew Peeke really does make the most sense. In terms of what he brings to the table, he’s by far the most replaceable of the bunch, particularly if you’re only looking at the right side.
Peeke has been a workhorse defenseman for the Jackets over the last two seasons, playing 162 games over that span (missing only two). He’s a big body at 6’3″ and 210 pounds, who has emerged as a shot blocking machine.
