Sugarcoating Johansen's documented (Larsen's and JK's quotes and the elimination game benching suffice) heartless play won't change the fact that he has shown-until proven otherwise-that he lacks the passion of a winner. The AHL playoffs were the highest level of playoff hockey where Johansen has ever played. An appropriate forum for him to have demonstrated his passion for winning. He didn't. In fact he was on the far other end of the compete/passion spectrum. Pretending that this is an "end of the season disappointment" or any other lame excuse is avoiding the reality of the situation.

He will be rightfully judged going forward by CBJ management with this huge red flag in mind.
Yeah, look at these heartless losers in blue here. Based on this, they'll never win anything either.
