The Cannon: Jackets make qualifying offers to RFAs; sign Clendening and Robinson
Today marked the point in offseason where teams could give qualifying offers to their restricted free agents.
Sedlak's offer is an offer for his rights while playing in the KHL.
It's clear the Jackets are quite comfortable with the defensive depth they have in the organization. All of the defensive RFAs were given offers. Those players are Adam Clendening, Scott Harrington, Ryan Murray, Doyle Somerby, and Zach Werenski.
Netminder Joonas Korpisalo was also given a qualifying offer.
Of those given offer sheets, Eric Robinson accepted their offers and signed a contract with the Blue Jackets.

My NHL Trade Rumors: Winners and losers at the 2019 NHL Entry Draft
Taking a look back at the 2019 NHL draft and who were the winners and losers - in making their selections and on making trades.
By Adam Proteau, Featurd
With the 2019 NHL entry draft in the books, it's time for that timeless tradition - making the call on the winners and losers of the weekend. Of course, we all are aware the draft isn't an endpoint, but rather, a starting line for the next generation of elite hockey talent - and that the big winners and losers won't be all that clear for years to come.

The Cannon: 2018-19 Cleveland Monsters Reviews : Another year, another brick wall performance from Brad Thiessen
The 208-19 season was supposed to be a relaxing season for Cleveland Monsters netminder, Brad Thiessen.
He started out the season sharing backup duties with Matiss Kivlenieks while stepping into the role of goalie coach.
Thiessen was Mr. Dependable during the first half of the season. He graciously stepped into his role of backup and lit it up almost every time.
In March, Jean-Francois Berube went down with a season ending injury and Thiessen was given the task of starting netminder. For the next 11 games of the regular season, Thiessen was one of the players who breathed new life back into the Monsters.
My NHL Trade Rumors: NHL Rumors: Predators, Flames, Blue Jackets and Sabres
Pierre LeBrun: Nashville Predators GM David Poile said that it basically came down to four teams for a P.K. Subban trade.
By the sounds of it, the New Jersey Devils were the only team that was willing to take on Subban's full contract.
Brooks Bratten: Poile said there four teams who were serious. All deals were different.
The Predators took the deal that gave them the most cap space.
Brooks Bratten: Poile said that if it weren't for getting Dante Fabbro signed and for him playing as well he did, they would not have traded Subban.
The Cannon: The Blue Jackets have three marquee unrestricted free agents this summer - are any of them staying?
The Columbus Blue Jackets have an important crop of unrestricted free agents this summer.
Fans might have heard something about that once or twice. A week. All season.
With the "tampering period" opening today and some players taking meetings, let's take one final look at the unrestricted free agents the team could lose or re-sign in the coming weeks.
Dzingel played well in Ottawa and struggled in Columbus. Stop me if you've heard that before.
Dzingel, a former Ohio State product, posted 12 points for the Jackets in 21 games before getting just one point in the playoffs and being healthy scratched for the Boston series.
The Cannon: 2019 Entry Draft: Columbus Blue Jackets select Tyler Angle with the 212th pick
The Columbus Blue Jackets entered the 2019 NHL Entry Draft with just two picks. After a trade with the Florida Panthers, the team acquired a third. With their final scheduled pick of the draft, the Jackets used their seventh rounder (212th overall, from Calgary via Ottawa) to select Tyler Angle.
With #CBJ's seventh round pick, 212th overall, the club selects 5-9, 168-pound center Tyler Angle from Thorold, Ontario. The 18-year-old had 20-24-44 in 58 games with The OHL's Windsor Spitfires.-- CBJ Public Relations (@BlueJacketsPR) June 22, 2019
The diminutive center from Thorold, Ontario has played the last three years for the Windsor Spitfires.
