Jackets pick up a defenseman

After flirting with Martin Skoula in training camp, Scott Howson finally made a trade to bring a defenseman (hopefully) capable of running the point on the power play — Anton Stralman from Calgary. Stralman’s career stats aren’t mind-blowing, but he’s young for a defenseman (23) and cost only a third round pick in 2010. Hopefully he will help, because in a tight Central Division, an anemic power play could ultimately cost the Jackets a playoff position.
