Update, 1:10 p.m.:
Portzline adds that Erixon was sent back to Columbus' AHL club.
…ok, not as big of a deal. I thought they completely cut him lose. I'm sure Columbus is still disappointed he couldn't make big club.
#CBJ cuts are C Boone Jenner and D Tim Erixon.

…wow! Wonder if the Rangers will look to bring him back. Obviously Erixon isn't as good as the so-called experts made him out to be. Especially when he's getting cut by Columbus. Yikes.
…and how about Columbus GM Howson trying explain to his fanbase that they just cut a key return from the Nash trade. Doubt he makes the end of the year.
In other transaction news, Wade Redden has cleared waivers and is now eligible to be bought out by the Rangers.
