The Mike Commodore saga continues.

The defenseman cleared re-entry waivers Monday and officially joined the Blue Jackets’ minor-league affiliate in Springfield, Massachusetts. He is due close to $1.9 million for the remainder of the season.

The rest of the NHL teams passed on claiming the likable and popular Commodore at half-price, but the stumbling block is his remaining two years and $6.85 million deal.

Also, hurting Commodore was the fact that he was not playing regularly for one of the league’s worst defensive units further diminished any team wanting to trade or claim him on waivers.

Commodore has not played since December 27 against the Minnesota Wild. He fell out of favor with head coach Scott Arniel, who scratched him in eight of his last nine games before he left the team on January 8.

Arniel has said all along the benching was performance-based; Commodore said it was personal.

General manager Scott Howson said that Commodore wanted to stay with the Falcons to work with the young players rather than be loaned to another franchise.

The Mike Commodore saga continues.

The popular defenseman reported to Springfield, Columbus’ AHL affiliate last Thursday, but he has not appeared in any games.

It has become known, that the Blue Jackets have placed him on re-entry waivers. Which means, that NHL teams have until noon on Monday January 17 to claim the 31-year-old at a discount rate.

The team that claims him will be responsible for half of Commodore’s remaining contract, $6.85 million over the next two seasons, while Columbus would pick up the balance of the contract.

If Commodore goes unclaimed, the Blue Jackets are could loan him to another American Hockey League team.

The last time the Columbus  Blue Jackets were on the West Coast, they swept the trip with wins in Anaheim, Los Angeles and San Jose. But that was when the Blue Jackets were playing well and looked like a playoff team.

This trip will not yield the same results.

The 10th season of Blue Jackets hockey is starting to look bad with losses piling up, turmoil with Mike Commodore calling out head coach Scott Arniel and trade rumors daily.

The Anaheim Ducks embarrassed the Jackets 6-0 before 12,815 fans at the Honda Center. The team since November 24 have been reeling, 1-8-2 on the road and 6-12-3 overall.

Teemu Selanne and Bobby Ryan each had two goals for the Ducks. Matt Beleskey and Brandon McMillan also scored. Jonas Hiller, the Ducks goalie made 27 saves.

The Jackets only suffered their second shutout of the season.

Columbus beats Central Division rival Nashville, 2-0

Everytime the Columbus Blue Jackets play the Nashville Predators, the game almost never goes the way the CBJ wants it to go. Last week, the Jackets shut down the Predators, 2-0.

The highlights include Steve Mason’s shutout, facing 27 shots, his first shutout of the season and the 17th of his career. The Jackets had their second straight shutout and a four-game winning streak, the longest since late in the 2008-2009 season.

Columbus captain Rick Nash continued his torrid streak of scoring goals. He has 10 in the last nine games and defenseman Mike Commodore has gone offensive-minded lately, scoring for the second time in three games.

Mason, Nash and Commodore were the three stars of the game.

Nash scored for the sixth straight game, one short of Geoff Sanderson’s franchise record. He also extended his point streak to nine games, matching a franchise record that he shares with Andrew Cassels.
