Latest on Josh Anderson Rumors

What’s the latest speculation when it comes to Josh Anderson of the Columbus Blue Jackets?

Elliotte Friedman noted during Sportsnet’s broadcast of the Edmonton Oilers versus the Boston Bruins game, the Bruins might be a team interested in Columbus Blue Jackets’ forward Josh Anderson.

Saying it might be a difficult move to make considering Anderson hasn’t played in two months, there’s some uncertainty there, especially considering the Bruins are rumored to be in on other players as well — they are considered a front-runner for Chris Kreider.

Brian Burke wasn’t as convinced Anderson wouldn’t garner interest. Calling him a big, truculent guy that can move, “there would be a lot of teams interested if he gets a clean bill of health, or even if he’s cleared to play in three more weeks.”

That becomes the debate. How healthy is Anderson and can he help you in a playoff run, even if he doesn’t really help you get to the playoffs? If teams run out of options or the ask isn’t incredibly high, there could be a team that’s a shoe-in for the playoffs that takes that chance.
