The Seattle Kraken didn't bite when the Blue Jackets left Max Domi exposed for the expansion draft.
After that, you might think that the Blue Jackets aren't sure if Domi fits into their plans for this season and beyond, and you'd be right. According to TSN's Elliotte Friedman, the Blue Jackets are actively looking for trade partners who might be interested in taking Domi.
"I think they're trying to move Max Domi," Friedman said on Monday's edition of the 31 Thoughts podcast. "I just don't know if the fit is going to work (in Columbus). I think they want to see if they can get him to somewhere else where the fit might be better."
The 26-year-old forward has one more year left on the two-year deal he signed with the Blue Jackets. It comes with a base salary of $6 million and a $5.3 million cap hit. It hasn't exactly been a perfect match between Domi and the Blue Jackets thus far. Last season, Domi bounced around from wing to center before finally settling in at center over the last stretch of the season, but it was clear that John Tortorella expected more out of Domi than he got.
