Blue Jackets scouting the Pens?

The Columbus beat writers blog reports: the BJs had three scouts at last night's game.

This doesn't mean they were looking at the Penguins, after all there's been a longly whispered rumor about them shipping David Vyborny to the Rangers (not coincidentally last night's opponent) for the midgetly Petr Prucha.

Columbus has been a surprise team so far this year, and of press time is just 3 points back of a playoff spot. So we couldn't see them trading the player that would benefit the Pens the most (captain and defensive bedrock Adam Foote).

Further, the Penguins haven't lost in regulation in the past ten games, why would they want to shake up the groove they're in right now.

So why so many scouts? TST thinks that if Columbus was really doing some serious scouting it wasn't the black and gold they were interested in last night.
