Sheet Player News (Feb. 2)
The Blue Jackets continue to struggle and it doesn't appear that anyone on the team is actually exempt from this slumping effect, but rookie forward Ryan Johansen has arguably suffered more (if not, the most). The kid has had all kinds of press about his potential leading up to the year, but without a quality team around him, he has not been able to flourish under the systems that are in place and his numbers have been poor. On Wednesday night in Los Angeles, Johansen was a scratch again for the team, but I cannot see this getting any better for him.
