"Trade X before he busts" is a semicommon comment in the Live Chat. It's a favorite sarcastic line, because it represents an extremist position that is only taken by people with a serious agenda against said player.

You are quite literally the only person here who both proclaims to be a fan of the Blue Jackets and is publicly convinced that Johansen will fail - not might fail, but WILL fail - and needs to be traded immediately while the rest of the world continues to maintain some sort of collective delusion (to which only you seem not susceptible) that he might be a good hockey player someday. You have provided no rational basis for this belief whatsoever, and indeed have given no justifications at all beyond extremely rare, extraordinarily vague statements like "I don't like him", "He'll bust", and "We should have drafted Gormley/Fowler/whoever" - none of which are ever backed up with any reasoning as to why these positions are held. Conclusions precisely contradictory to these, by contrast, have been reached and discussed by many, many other people of varying qualifications, experience levels, and credentials, some of which are similar to yours as we presently know them, but most of which are well in excess of same. So therefore, unless you have an actual counterargument (which I would welcome, as it would be a first-ever event), your input on anything related to Johansen continues to be utterly unhelpful, unnecessary, and counterproductive.

Quit it already. We get it. You hate Johansen. The CBJ organization doesn't care. Howson doesn't care. Davidson doesn't care. We don't care. Nobody cares. And your petulant whining about how he just has to bust because of just how very much you don't like him corresponds little to objective reality. So kindly do the rest of us a favor and just shut up and get the **** over it already.
