"In 2002, the Blue Jackets considered drafting Upshall with the No. 3 overall pick, director of hockey operations Don Boyd said."
One more reason why it is nothing short of insane that this guy still has a job that doesn't involve pushing a broom around the concourses.

Shed payroll, and looking to add skill
are the KEY words for me.

I agree with your assessment of Don Boyd, but c'mon. Where the heck would this team be without Rick Nash? It sure wouldn't be where it is if we had drafted Upshall back then. Just be glad to have him now and push for the playoffs!

Nash was clearly the best move the CBJ have ever made, and I actually like the trade for Upshall. I think he will fit in nicely and should they decide to sign him, I see real potential for upside. But he is not now, nor was he ever, worthy of a Top 3 pick.

Upshall is OK. The other guy is suspect.
