In one of the most innovative and surprising trades in recent memory, Nathan Horton of the Columbus Blue Jackets was traded to the Toronto Maple Leafs for David Clarkson. Full stop.

NHL taking hold in Columbus with Blue Jackets ratings surge

The Columbus Blue Jackets have never really been a model franchise for expansion teams.  Moribund season after moribund season turned what should have been a thriving, growing small market into one that could be best described as perilous.  Even with a long-term arena agreement with Franklin County, it always seemed like the Blue Jackets were the first or second team mentioned...
