It is hard to say with any certainty if a long playoff run with the Blue Jackets will affect his decision at all, but regardless of where he ends up, Bobrovsky is likely due for a raise this summer.

Fantasy Impact: "There are certain expectations and values that we have established for our players that define our culture," Columbus General manager Jarmo Kekalainen said. "An incident occurred in which Sergei failed to meet those expectations and values." There's no word on exactly what happened. Consider him day-to-day until more is known about his status. He's a free agent at season's end, so it appears he'll be trade bait come the February 26th trade deadline.

Blue Jackets G Sergei Bobrovsky bounced back from a four-goal game with a 28-save, one goal win versus the Pittsburgh Penguins Friday night.

Columbus goalie Sergei Bobrovsky allowed four more goals on Monday, as the Blue Jackets fell to the New York Rangers, 4-2 again.

Fantasy Impact: "Four goals allowed" is getting a bit redundant for Bobrovsky who's watched four pucks fly past him in three straight games. A GAA of 4.00 is unacceptable in fantasy hockey, and the 94% owned Bobrovsky (in Yahoo public leagues) has to be benched by fantasy owners right now.

He has not had a game in which his save percentage was higher than .880. It couldn't have been a worse start to the year for Bobrovsky so there is a good chance he will turn it around.
