That now seems to be the latest possibility. According to the Fourth Period, the Detroit Red Wings are interested in Fedor Tyutin. The veteran defenseman seems to have fallen out of favor in Columbus like last season with James Wisniewski- a big time salary that doesn't perform the way the club wants him to. According to the website, two scouts/former Red Wings, Kirk Maltby and Kris Draper, were apparently scouting him for the Wings.
The question now becomes what does Columbus want for him. Since they are short of 2016 draft picks due to trades made last season and this past summer, at least one should be asked of for any player. With Fedor Tyutin, if the Blue Jackets can get either a 2nd or 3rd round pick with a prospect, I would be content. Some prospects that could be of interest include:
Offense: Tomas Jurco, Axel Holstrom, Jokiam Anderson
Defense: Ryan Sproul, Xaiver Oullet,
What are your thoughts on this rumor? Who makes sense to move if your Detroit or Columbus? More to come…
