Today, TSN insider Bob McKenzie noted the Columbus Blue Jackets face a tough decision with pending unrestricted free agent winger Artemi Panarin, who recently indicated his unwillingness to discuss a new contract during the season. Do they keep him and risk losing him to free agency this summer or trade him for what could be futures because interested clubs could be reluctant to part with anyone off their rosters. He believes it’ll take a big return to convince Blue Jackets general manager Jarmo Kekalainen to part with his best player and risk sabotaging his playoff chances. If they decide to trade Panarin, McKenzie suggests that could affect what they might do with goalie Sergei Bobrovsky.

I don't think anyone really knows what's fact and what's not fact.

There was a poster who goes to dinner, weddings Christenings and Bar-mitzvahs with the players and He may know

I think the decision McKenzie is alluding to, is not whether to extend Bob, but rather if they should keep him for the playoffs or flip him at the deadline.

Well when you think about it, where would the Isles honestly be if Lehner wasn't having the amazing season he is having. I'm glad he is, its a great story, and he had a lot of demons, but can you hang all your hopes on Lehner continuing to play the way he has?

I'm not totally sure how this relates to Gor-gee-ev/if I'm answering this correctly, but...

I think I'd be lying if I didn't say that I have a small amount of skepticism that Lehner won't revert back to being the goalie he was and not the goalie he's played like this year. Without trying to take too much credit away from him, I think some of his success stems from the fact that Trotz has turned this team into a shot suppression beast and some of it stems from Korn being a goalie-whisperer.

If Sorokin comes over and the Isles let Lehner walk, I could see another team (CBJ, maybe) signing him to a sizable deal and then regretting it when they didn't get the same goalie he is this year.

I’m hoping this break did him well and he comes back with some more effort. It was getting hard to watch him half arsing it out there.

Lehner is in a great spot with the Isles. He really should want to make a good deal with the Isles.

Well its always been said lehner has a ton of talent but he was a headcase and now he seems to have controlled those demons so he could be legit. I say resign him and let greiss walk after next year when sorokin is ready to come over. Let lehner and sorokin split and see if sorokin can be a true #1 here and if not they still have lehner

Lou says #Isles are a good team right now. He is not going to deny that. But team needs to sustain that.

Not only that but he has a defensive system in front him now. Your goalie is only as good as your defense and this is why hanks numbers are down

Also I would trade one of our defensive prospect with the number one pick for someone. Problem is you make the trade let’s say with prospect and picks right. Then who is the guy you sit in the lineup??

Meaning you are saying Georgy probably wont be a good goalie, because he is a backup, well lets be honest, any goalie is going to be a back up to Hank.

Your comment about the Rangers having a hole in goalie, I would say you are in the same spot. Lehner is a great story, but the odds are he won't continue to be this good considering what he has done.

Both of us have Ruskies who don't seem to want to leave the motherland

Whatever they do with Lehner is going to depend on what the situation with Sorokin is. I think it'll be tough for them to sign Lehner if Sorokin comes.

Lehner on a 3 to 4 year deal wouldn't be bad, I'd prefer 3 next year then 2 with sorokin to let him get acclimated but he will probably want more
