Jackets 20: Ryan Johansen proved to be win-win for Jackets/Predators

A look back at fan-favorite Ryan Johansen. For a while there we were reliving the glory years and moments of Columbus Blue Jackets’ finest to don the garb. Then the season got going and we got caught up in real, live action for the first time since late last summer. Well, I’m back with another look at a past Blue Jacket. And coincidentally, this guy brings to mind another more recent ex-Blue Jacket — Pierre-Luc Dubois. But today we’re talking about another former disgruntled center!
