As it stands, the club hasn't yet made their leading scorer an offer. And one may not be coming. Jacket GM Jarmo Kekalainen recently said he hadn't yet decided whether to extend Prospal a fresh offer. Michael Arace of the Dispatch suggests the Blue Jackets may no longer consider the veteran left-winger a vital piece.
At best, the Columbus Blue jackets are in no hurry to re-sign Vinny Prospal. The alternative, according to the Columbus Dispatch, is he simply doesn't fit into their plans anymore.
