Umberger going to Columbus?

From Aaron Portzline of the Columbus Dispatch:

R.J. Umberger could be headed back to central Ohio.

Rumors are spreading in Ottawa that Umberger, who attended Ohio State,
could be headed to the Blue Jackets at some point this weekend. No word on what
the Blue Jackets would be trading to Philly.

Looks like the Blue Jackets are intent on acquiring the rights players before they become UFAs. Earlier this week the rumor was Ryan Malone, now the rumor involves R.J. Umberger. If Umberger is moved, Columbus would be adding a good all-around forward to their top-two lines. Umberger has really come into his own the past couple seasons.
