"You're in fifth or sixth spot, you lose a couple of games and you're going to find yourself in 11th," said defenseman Rostislav Klesla. "It's weird. The league's gotten so competitive. Every team except one or two in each conference is still (in the postseason race). With the salary cap, all the rosters are evened up. That's how it plays out."
"It's been a long time. I've really enjoyed my time in Columbus," Klesla said on TSN. "I met a lot of great people. The only thing that wasn't great was that we weren't able to bring a winning team. I wish them the best."
