Jackets' Johansen: Five-Game Streak

News: Ryan Johansen's point streak now stands at five games and seven points after he picked up an assist in Saturday's loss to Ottawa.
Analysis: Hmmmm ... does Columbus actually have a star? You bet they do. Ryan Johansen is showing that last year was no fluke. Take advantage. #hotinohio

Jackets' Johansen Scores Again Friday

News: Ryan Johansen scored a power-play goal in Friday's 3-2 win over the Flames.
Analysis: He now has six points (three goals, three assists) with six shots on goal and four hits through the Jackets' first four games, while winning 60 percent (45-for-75) of his faceoffs. Ryan Johansen is making the rest of the NHL look silly for wasting their time with training camp.

Ryan Johansen

Jackets' Johansen Scores Two

News: Ryan Johansen accounted for all the Jackets' offense in Tuesday's 4-2 loss to the Stars, scoring his first two goals of the year.
Analysis: Ryan Johansen only took one shot on goal in his first two games this year after missing the whole preseason due to a contract dispute, but he'd managed three assists anyway. Now, with five points in three games, he's officially hot. Just think how good he'll be once he gets all the way back in terms of conditioning.

Jackets' Johansen Still Getting Legs Under Him

News: Ryan Johansen admitted Sunday that his conditioning is not quite where it needs to be, the Columbus Dispatch reports. "I don't feel quite like myself yet, but it's coming," Johansen said. "I feel close to everybody else. It might look similar. But I still need to get my conditioning up another 10 seconds or so at high speed."
Analysis: The '10 seconds' is in reference to his shift length, which the Blue Jackets have wisely kept in the range of 35-to-40 seconds so far rather than the 45-to-50 seconds Ryan Johansen is accustomed to. Despite the conditioning issue, Johansen has still looked dominant at times through the first two games, and as long as the club keeps him from playing fatigued, he should be able to avoid a serious injury. So far, it looks like his contract dispute will have no lasting implications at all, which is excellent news for Johansen and his fantasy owners.

Jackets' Johansen Picks Up Two Assists Saturday

News: Ryan Johansen notched two assists in Saturday's 5-2 win over the Rangers.
Analysis: Despite missing basically all of training camp due to a contract dispute, Ryan Johansen hasn't looked rusty at all, dominating in the faceoff circle on Saturday (winning 11 of 17) and picking up three assists through the Jackets' first two games. If you were able to pick him up at a discount due to the contract squabble, you may have gotten a bargain.

Jackets' Johansen Picks Up Assist In Opener

News: Ryan Johansen assisted on Cam Atkinson's game-winning power-play goal in Thursday's victory over the Sabres.
Analysis: As expected, Ryan Johansen saw far less ice time than the 17:39 he averaged last season, finishing with just over 14 minutes on the night. The Blue Jackets figure to limit Johansen's ice time while he works himself back into playing shape after he missed the entirety of training camp, but it shouldn't be long before he earns back his usual workload. Even in reduced minutes, Johansen should still produce useful production for fantasy owners.

Jackets' Johansen Likely To Play Thursday

News: Ryan Johansen was a full participant at morning skate and looks likely to play Thursday against the Sabres, Aaron Portzline of the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: The Blue Jackets have voiced some concern about Ryan Johansen's conditioning after he missed all of training camp while immersed in a contract dispute, so don't be surprised if he sees a limited minutes load in his season debut. Regardless, he appears set to open on the Jackets' top line this season, with Nick Foligno and Cam Atkinson flanking him on the wings.

Jackets' Johansen May Not Play Thursday

News: Coach Todd Richards said Ryan Johansen isn't necessarily guaranteed to play Thursday against the Sabres, Shawn Mitchell of the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Richards acknowledged after Wednesday's practice that Ryan Johansen's conditioning remains a concern, after the center's lengthy holdout kept him out for the entirety of training camp. While he may not be up to full speed just yet, Johansen still seems more likely than not to suit up Thursday, especially since the Blue Jackets will be without three of their other top-six forwards. Richards should provide definitive word on Johansen's status after Thursday's morning skate.

Jackets' Johansen Cleared To Join Columbus

News: Ryan Johansen has settled his visa issue and is en route to join the Blue Jackets in Columbus, Aaron Portzline of the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Ryan Johansen ended his long holdout Monday morning, signing a three-year, $12 million deal. With his immigration paperwork receiving proper clearance, he'll depart from Canada, where he had been training on his own while negotiating a new deal with the Jackets. Although the team figures to limit his minutes in the early going due to his lack of involvement in training camp, it shouldn't take long for Johansen to establish himself as the team's top offensive option, especially with Brandon Dubinsky, Nathan Horton and Boone Jenner opening the season on injured reserve.

Jackets Not Sure If Johansen Will Play In Opener

News: According to Blue Jackets' GM Jarmo Kekalainen, Ryan Johansen will need "a day or two" to deal with his immigration status before he can suit up for the club, putting his status for Thursday's opener in doubt, the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: We should know more about his status later in the week, but even if Ryan Johansen misses Thursday's game in Buffalo he should be on the ice Saturday when the Jackets play their home opener against the Rangers.

Jackets Sign Johansen To Three-Year Deal

News: The Blue Jackets signed Ryan Johansen to a three-year, $12 million contract Monday, Aaron Portzline of the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Ryan Johansen had a breakout season in 2013-14, racking up 33 goals and 30 assists in 82 games. Though negotiations between player and management were highly contentious for most of the summer, it appears both sides have finally found a happy medium. The former first-round pick is still just 22 years old, and should be a cornerstone of the Jackets for the foreseeable future.

Jackets Inching Towards Deal With Johansen

News: The gap between the contract offers tendered by the Blue Jackets and Ryan Johansen's agent, Kurt Overhardt, is down to $1.25 million per season, the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Perhaps the best news for Ryan Johansen owners (and Jackets fans) is that the front office has finally budged off its initial two-year, $6 million proposal, extending one worth $6.5 million, which Overhardt countered with a two-year, $9 million contract. With less than a week to go before the regular season begins it's virtually certain that Johansen will miss some games due to this dispute, but there may finally be light at the end of the tunnel.

Jackets Resume Negotiations With Johansen

News: The Blue Jackets have resumed negotiations with Ryan Johansen's agent, the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: The Ryan Johansen camp suddenly has a bit more leverage with the news that Boone Jenner suffered a broken hand during Sunday's practice and will miss the beginning of the regular season. There's no report of any movement towards a contract yet, but a two-year bridge deal for something in the vicinity of $4 million a season seems a little more probable than it did last week.

Jackets' Johansen Lowers Contract Demand

News: Ryan Johansen has decreased his contract demands and has gone back to the Blue Jackets with an offer of a two-year deal worth $9.4 million, reports TSN.ca. The offer is down more than $2 million a season from the original offer from his camp, but is still $1.7 million from the team's last position.
Analysis: The Jackets are unlikely to bite given their insistence on pursuing a bridge style contract with their most talented player.

Jackets, Johansen Remain $3 Million Per Year Apart

News: The latest contract offer from the Ryan Johansen camp, rejected by the Blue Jackets on Thursday, is reportedly for two years and $12 million, the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: That's down a million from their last proposal, which is some sign of progress, but it's still double the Jackets' offer of two years and $6 million. With multiple KHL teams inserting themselves into the mix, including a one year, $5 million offer from CSKA Moscow, things could get very interesting over the next few weeks.

Jackets' Johansen: Is KHL Calling?

News: Ryan Johansen is set to receive a contract offer from CSKA Moscow of the KHL, reports TSN.ca. The deal is expected to be for one year and $5 million.
Analysis: The Jackets and Ryan Johansen are at an impasse in salary negotiations. Johansen doesn't think he should have to ink a bridge deal and instead go straight to the rich house, while the Jackets think he should prove his mettle with a P.K. Subban-like bridge contract. Still, reports indicate the team has offered as much as $32 million for six years and $46 million over eight, so those aren't exactly "bridge." Johansen sniped 33 goals and ended with 63 points in 82 games last season. A move to the KHL is unlikely, but leverage is leverage.

Jackets Turn Down Latest Offer From Johansen Camp

News: The Blue Jackets have rejected the latest contract offer from Ryan Johansen's agent Kurt Overhardt, the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: This isn't a big surprise, as the increasingly bitter negotiations seem poised to drag on for a while yet. Brandon Dubinsky, who is also represented by Overhardt and went through his own nine-day absence from camp during his days as an RFA with the Rangers, says that the locker room will welcome the young center back without reservation once the contract dispute is settled, so that's at least a sliver of good news for Ryan Johansen owners.

Jackets Receive New Offer From Johansen's Agent

News: Ryan Johansen's agent, Kurt Overhardt, has sent a new two-year contract proposal in to the Blue Jackets, Aaron Portzline of the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: The two sides were reportedly about $3.5 million per year apart when Ryan Johansen left camp, so while this latest offer likely didn't close the gap much it's encouraging to see that there's at least some movement.

Jackets' Johansen Leaves Camp Without Contract

News: Ryan Johansen has flown home to Vancouver after last-minute talks between the Blue Jackets and his agent failed to produce a contract agreement, the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Club president John Davidson took the unusual step of publicly announcing the various contracts Ryan Johansen had been offered and turned down, which ranged from a two-year, $6 million deal to eight years and $46 million, while agent Kurt Overhardt is said to be seeking a two-year, $13 million deal as a 'bridge' contract to take the RFA into his arbitration years. With the two sides still so far apart, Johansen could be facing a lengthy absence from training camp, so unless things change in a hurry, you'll need to start dropping Johansen on your cheat sheets.

Jackets' Johansen Seems Headed For A Holdout

News: Blue Jackets GM Jarmo Kekalainen dropped strong hints that the club would stop negotiating with Ryan Johansen's agent once training camp begins on Thursday, the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Meanwhile, club president John Davidson described agent Kurt Overhardt's contract proposals as "embarrassing" and "absurd", and said that while the Jackets are using Matt Duchesne's bridge deal as a reasonable point of comparison, Overhardt has been tossing around names like Stamkos and Toews. Public statements like these are clearly a negotiating tactic, but the Jackets do have enough depth at center that they could try to survive the loss of Ryan Johansen, last season's top scorer, by shifting Boone Jenner into the middle or possibly giving a prospect like Alexander Wennberg a long look.

Jackets To Resume Talks With Johansen's Agent

News: After six weeks of silence, the Blue Jackets front office is expected to resume negotiations with Ryan Johansen's agent, Kurt Overhardt, during this weekend's Traverse City prospect tournament, the Columbus Dispatch reports. "The last time they contacted us, (the offer) wasn't something that merited further talks," Blue Jackets general manager Jarmo Kekalainen said.
Analysis: The two sides are said to be $3 million per year apart, although they have agreed in principle on a two-year contract. The Blue Jackets' training camp begins September 17, and if Ryan Johansen isn't under contract by then he'll be officially considered a holdout. He has been in Columbus the last two weeks participating in voluntary practices, however, so if he does sign over the next few days Johansen won't be behind in his conditioning.

Jackets' Johansen Still Not Signed

News: The Ryan Johansen camp and the Blue Jackets are said to be $3 million per year apart in contract talks, the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: The sides have agreed to a two-year 'bridge' deal for the young phenom that would take him into his arbitration years rather than unrestricted free agency, but having capitulated on the length of the contract Ryan Johansen's agent, Kurt Overhardt, isn't budging on his salary demands. Johansen is currently at home in BC but is expected to return to Columbus later in August, so we might not see any movement towards a new contract until then. It would still be a huge shock to see him playing for anyone but the Blue Jackets next season.

Jackets' Johansen Inching Closer To New Deal

News: Negotiations between Ryan Johansen and the Blue Jackets have started up again after Johansen's agent proposed a two-year deal to the club, the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: This is a big step, as the length of a new contract was the biggest stumbling block between the two sides. The actual dollar amount will still be an issue, but it wouldn't be surprising to see Ryan Johansen back in a Jackets sweater by the end of the week.

Jackets' Johansen Not Close To A New Contract

News: Contract talks between the Blue Jackets and Ryan Johansen, a restricted free agent, are at a standstill at the moment, the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: The club is apparently offering a two- or three-year 'bridge' deal, while Ryan Johansen wants at least a four year contract that would allow him to become an unrestricted free agent at the end of the deal. GM Jarmo Kekalainen has already vowed to match any offers Johansen gets, so it's highly unlikely he's in another uniform next season, but this could sour the relationship between the front office and their young star.

Jackets' Johansen Adds Goal, Assist In Win

News: Ryan Johansen recorded a goal and an assist in Wednesday's overtime victory over the Penguins.
Analysis: Ryan Johansen chipped in two more points Wednesday, including an assist on the game-tying goal with less than 30 seconds to play in regulation. He now has five points in four playoff games, and will look to stay hot as the Jackets try to take the lead in the series with a Game 5 win.
