David Clarkson remains out indefinitely with a chronic lower-back problem.
Clarkson failed the Blue Jackets' physical. "He will be trying to work his way back through rehab, but he has had a rough summer," Jackets president John Davidson said. "He has tried to train all (summer), and he has had real issues with it." At this point it's possible that Clarkson may have played in his last game. Clarkson's contract is insured, which is particularly noteworthy because Nathan Horton's deal was not, creating problems for the Jackets when he sustained a career-ending injury. The Jackets dealt Horton to Toronto in exchange for Clarkson in a deal that essentially bought Toronto cap space and meant that Columbus was at least getting an active player for the money they were already spending. Unfortunately the Blue Jackets have only gotten 26 games out of Clarkson, but at least if he's on the LTIR they're spared of the cash they'd have to pay Clarkson and not just the cap hit, so this is still better than the Horton situation for them.
