Michael Arace commentary: Time is ticking away for Jackets, Ryan Johansen

Blue Jackets center Ryan Johansen is not a holdout. He is a vacationer for 27 more days, until training camp opens on Sept. 18. At the moment, he is not holding out on anything. Also, technically speaking, the term holdout does not apply to him. Holdouts are players who have contracts and refuse to report. That is not Johansen. He is a restricted free agent, and it is his right to negotiate a contract any way he sees fit.

Bob Hunter commentary: Scott Hartnell is perfect fit with young Jackets

The Columbus news media got its first extended interview session with Scott Hartnell yesterday, and it scrutinized him the way a prospective customer might go over a used car. Scratches and dents are obvious. Sometimes problems that lurk beneath the hood aren’t easily detected. This qualified as a friendly interrogation, but questions about his impressions of his new NHL team, teammates and city showed that reporters still haven’t forgotten that the team’s front office didn’t ask the right questions in 2011 before acquiring a disgruntled Jeff Carter from those same Philadelphia Flyers.
