Report: Josh Anderson Unhappy with Fourth Line Demotion, Anderson's Agent Refutes Report

The Columbus Blue Jackets didn't have themselves a good Saturday night. In between periods, a report from Sportsnet's Nick Kypreos may put the team a little more on edge than before. 

While only a small snippet during their Headlines segment between periods, Kypreos stated that Anderson is "clearly unhappy" and that there isn't a trade request "yet." 

It is a curious situation for such a remark since Anderson was just only moved to the fourth line and that he is someone that Columbus seems to have a lot of faith in. Nonetheless, the statement from Kypreos brought some eyes to the situation. It even got Anderson's agent, Darren Ferris to come out and make a remark about it.

While all reports should be taken with a grain of salt, this one, in particular, is especially curious given the timing and recency of it all. If more noise continues to follow Anderson, then this may be a worthwhile report. For now, it feels like a pageview garnering comment than anything else.
