Did the Columbus Blue Jackets try to lure away Mitch Korn from Nashville?

While we knew that Brent Peterson would be taking a step back from his duties as assistant coach for next season, and that Peter Horachek is now a candidate for multiple head coaching jobs around the league, another note about the coaching situation in Nashville came across this morning from Aaron Portzline in the Columbus Dispatch. Apparently, the Blue Jackets tried to lure away another one of Nashville's prized possessions:

Sources tell The Dispatch that the Blue Jackets took a run at hiring goaltending coach Mitch Korn away from the Nashville Predators, but he decided to stay put.    

Let's all let out a collective sigh of relief, shall we? Korn has received due credit for Nashville's continuous string of strong goaltending going back several years in a row now, despite dealing with a revolving door of talent following the departure of Tomas Vokoun in 2007. With the Preds needing to fill Peterson's position, and possibly Horachek's as well, you'd hate to see another key cog in the organizational works depart at a time like this.
