The Blue Jackets

Which goaltender will the Columbus Blue Jackets commit to for the future?

The Columbus Blue Jackets have a decision to make in the next year - both Elvis Merzlikins and Joonas Korpisalo are unrestricted free agents next summer. The Blue Jackets have long viewed both as potential starting goaltenders in the NHL, but with Daniil Tarasov on the way, the team will have to make a decision of which to commit to long term, if either of them.

Elvis has made no bones about his love for the city and the organization, while Korpisalo is the long-term mainstay on the roster.
