Like the Isles with Nino, Columbus heard from the critics for the 4th line mins they gave Johansen last season.

Blue Jackets: Johansen’s development gets minor adjustments
The Blue Jackets were roundly criticized for not sending Johansen back to his junior club or letting him play for Team Canada in the World Junior Championships. He was too young to play in the AHL last season.

As one NHL scout put it: “That right there is a wide-angle look at how NOT to develop a player.”

Johansen has 10 goals, 11 assists and a plus-9 rating in 26 games, playing center on Springfield’s No. 1 line, top power-play unit and even the penalty kill. He’s taking late-game draws and being put in pressure situations.
