There's a lot to like for the Columbus Blue Jackets in getting Mark Letestu from the Edmonton Oilers. The 33-year-old is versatile enough to address several issues, from improving the bottom six to helping with the penalty kill to possibly getting prime power play time. He's also a right-handed center, which they needed, who wins 53.5 percent of his faceoffs. And he happily rejoins a franchise with whom he played 233 games from 2011-15. "It helps that we know what kind of guy he is. There's not guessing there. We know Mark Letestu," said general manager Jarmo Kekalainen.
