Jackets make a trade

Not the big one a lot of people have been waiting for, though. From the St. Louis Blues official page:

St. Louis Blues President John Davidson announced Tuesday the club has acquired forward Pascal Pelletier (pas-KAL, PEHL-tyay) from the Columbus Blue Jackets in exchange for Brendan Bell and Tomas Kana.

I remember Bell being seen as a promising prospect for the Leafs way back when I still lived in Canada, but he hasn’t done a great deal in the NHL, and has been playing in the AHL this season. He may get a shot in Columbus with the injury to Klesla, but I’d have to believe this is more of a move to shore up the blueline in Syracuse.

Kana, a center, is still fairly young and was a second rounder for St. Louis in ’06, so he may yet have an NHL future. But he’s been playing in the ECHL this year, which isn’t usually a great sign for a prospect who isn’t a goalie.
