Icon26 Jackets force Bobrovsky to miss Nashville game

Not sure what the heck is going on. Let the rumors fly.

Quote:
Columbus Blue Jackets goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky will not be with the team for tonight's game vs. the Nashville Predators, club General Manager Jarmo Kekalainen announced today.

"There are certain expectations and values that we have established for our players that define our culture," said Kekalainen. "An incident occurred in which Sergei failed to meet those expectations and values, so we made the decision that he would not be with the team for tonight's game. This is an internal matter and we will have no further comment at this time."

This might be a good time to get him for cheap.

Hypothetically - if you sign Bob - then he would automatically take the starter's role? What does this say to BSD who has done so much for the Flames this year?

I love the idea of getting him (re-signing him is another story) but what would it cost? They won't just give him away, but can they demand top value when everyone knows the relationship there has gone toxic?

Nah play the 1a 1b system. I think if Treliving did somehow get Bob before the deadline its to help take the load off Rittich down the stretch drive.

I'd actually rather stick with Dave at the moment.

Bobrovsky is an excellent goaltender, but hes also 30, going to want a lot of money, insane, prone to spells of terrible performance and hes insane.

Have I mentioned hes crazy?

Haha reporter tried to ask Tortorella if Bob played his last game for the Blue Jackets. Torts just referred him to the press release. Says he is only there to talk about tonight's game about Nashville.

I wouldn't mind a quality second goalie who can play if Rittich gets injured (fingers crossed). Also, I kind of feel that Rittich would benefit with having to fight for his job rather than knowing that he has a complete bum as a backup.

That being said, I don't think Bobrovsky is that guy. Would love to him though.

The current Flames team is a tight knit group. I'd rather not bring someone in that can ruin the culture in the room. Bobrovsky seems to have a lot of red flags.

The Flames do not want you because... "You are a loose cannon Bobrovsky!!!!"

Hard pass unless he wants a Halak deal.

He was pulled in Tuesday's game and went straight to the dressing room. Rumors that he was having a bit of a temper tantrum on his way to the locker room and even in the locker room.

Don’t want to have 8+ million of cap tied up on such an unpredictable position.

Right now we are spending 5 million on goaltending and getting our money’s worth.

Why are people saying he is crazy? Are they getting him mixed up with Bryzgalov?

It's Dave's net now, but Bob would probably be the best insurance policy out there. Not sure it's worth the price.
