Johansen will stay in the AHL for another season for seasoning. This team was just assembled, so to think that CBJ would disassemble them without a single game played would be crazy. Also JD is so excited about having 3 picks in the 1st rd, that right there is columbus' savior. Hes not going to move those picks until we know the order of those picks, and even then hes going to want a kings ransom, this is a very very deep draft.
Any GM who wouldn't make a trade that improves their team because "the team was just assembled" should not have a job. To turn down a player who would be the best player on your team for that reason would be foolish.

The reason I wouldn't trade Jenner/Johanson +1st for Plekanec would not be because of skill but because CBJ aren't close to competing and I would rather keep futures.
