Regardless, it is very encouraging to finally have a minor league affiliate performing at a level that suggests promise for the future.
My opinion, which I'm sure will be in the minority, is to leave as many of these guys as possible in Springfield for as long as possible to help the long term development of the Jackets.
I feel the same way, I dont think Johansen should have been called up from the WHL his first year, and shouldve played in the AHL or WHL last year whatever he was eligible for.
edit: just watched the highlights to the game, johans second goal was nasty. Not to mention his play to keep the puck in for the first goal, good cycling. I think a season in the AHL is going to make the jackets deadly next year. HOPEFULLY it will make JAM, johan, calvert and atkinson that much more hungry to suceed at a NHL level. Not to mention anisimov and foligno should have a pretty good season.
