How about acquiring Umberger from the Blue Jackets? Versitile player whom Columbus want to move. Will probably not cost a lot. Maybe a 3rd or 4th round pick. They might buy him out if not traded soon.
He's got a caphit at $4.6 million but he's better than Horcoff who got like $5.5 million in caphit. I don't think R.J. is a 2nd line centre but he could slot in anywhere needed... Like Peverley but maybe not as good.
I'd go for it. He could become 2nd line left winger.
