Bob And Bread Say Goodbye

We hoped it wouldn't happen but deep down knew this day was coming. Sergei Bobrovsky and Artemi Panarin, arguably the two best players on the Blue Jackets roster, both have moved on. The free agents signed elsewhere Monday, with Bob going to Florida and Panarin, to the Rangers. Additionally, trade deadline acquisition Matt Duchene also chose to leave Columbus signing with Nashville. As they went out the door, all three posted social media farewell notes to Blue Jacket fans. It may not make any of us feel any better, but credit to all three for showing some class. If you didn't see them, here are the notes from Bob, Bread and Duchene.
