No.

Where do we fit him in? In all likelihood, he ends up playing for Chicago and we're giving up key parts of our roster to acquire him. As intriguing as Johansen's upside may be, it doesn't make much sense for a contending team like us to make a deal like that now.

From Columbus' POV, he's only 20 years old. The Blue Jackets aren't going to give him away for a "decent roster player". They're much better off seeing what they have in him than dealing him off now.
