Columbus will match any offer sheet on Johansen and be pleased as punch that someone else did their negotiating for them. Nobody is getting offer sheeted. I cannot stress enough how massively unlikely it is that Ryan Johansen (or anybody else) gets moved as a result of an offer sheet.

From what I read Columbus is only interested in a 2-3 year term and talks are going no where. They would get compensated with multiple first rounders if Johansen signed an offer sheet and Colombus rejected it so it's not impossible.

That's interesting. I could see him holding out for arbitration to get to UFA. He'd be a nice pickup. Ultimately, though, I think the BJ's will give him what he wants, as he could be a cornerstone for them.

I think that Johansen is being the exact opposite. He has come out and said he wants to be a blue jacket and wants to be with them for a long time. Columbus is trying to do a Bridge deal because they can pay less for a few years. But that is a gamble in itself because you could be like Montreal and sign a bridge deal and then go see that person win a Norris Trophy, woops!

I didn't say it's impossible, few things are. I did, however, imply that it is so unlikely as to be pointless to discuss. In the last 20 years only 8 or 9 offer sheets have been given out of the hundreds upon hundreds of RFAs, and only twice has the player's team not matched the offer sheet. In each instance it was for players that were marginally talented, not players of Johansen's caliber.

Hold your breath if you want to, but Johansen is not leaving Columbus on an offer sheet. EVER. If I'm wrong, and it does happen, I'll volunteer to be lobotomized by a Mexican doctor with an online degree in brain surgery. So sure am I.
