The future of the Columbus Blue Jackets is up in the air with Artemi Panarin and Sergei Bobrovsky set to become UFAs at season's end.  Obviously the team would love to bring both players back, but that's easier said than done.

While Panarin's agent and the team negotiate, Columbus fans are doing everything they can to keep the "Bread Man" in town.  Recently, a billboard went up with an enticing offer for the 27-year-old to stay and it looks like he found said billboard.


Columbus, you keep amazing me. Thank you for your brilliance. Now I have a new spot to dine at. @highbankdistillery 💪💪💪💪💪 Оставайся в Коламбусе и наслаждайся High Bank всю жизнь бесплатно. Оригинальный ход 💪 как бы вы поступили?)

Columbus is making it hard for Panarin to not sign a new deal and test free agency.  Unfortunately it will take a lot more than vodka to keep him and Bobrovsky in town past this season, especially considering what happened Thursday morning.
