    Jack Johnson Tracking Thread

    Johnson requested a trade from the Blue Jackets over the weekend, as talks over a long-term deal have stalled. Now he's on the block, with a 10 team no trade list and possibly looking to sign a deal with whomever trades for him. What teams are interested, and what would be offered- the Jackets are second in the Metro and would need an asset in return who can contribute now.

    Columbus Blue Jackets defenceman Jack Johnson has requested a trade, according to The Athletic, and has now become one of the bigger names to watch in the lead up to trade deadline day.

    Johnson, 31, is hoping to a sign a long-term contract with his new team if he's traded since talks have stalled with Columbus.

    TSN Hockey Insider Pierre LeBrun believes the Blue Jackets could be seeking a rental forward in their return for Johnson. LeBrun notes the Blue Jackets, who sit second in the Metropolitan Division, are looking to win now and therefore a draft pick return makes little sense.

    Blue Jackets general manager Jarmo Kekalainen told George Richards of the Columbus Dispatch that Johnson would only be traded if the return made sense for the team.

    "It's the same with him as anyone else on our team: We'll make a trade if and when we have something that makes sense for the Blue Jackets," Kekalainen said.

    Johnson has two goals and seven points in 46 games this season while averaging 19:24 of ice time per game, the lowest mark of his career.

    The return value won't be much. Down year and what not.

    Jack Johnson for Tyler Bozak makes sense. Tampa Bay could with Hedman injured.

    Think the Leafs would then swap Johnson elsewhere in that scenario?

    No. They could use a minute logging TWD. Scoring, they are fine. So much depth. Goaltending is passable. They need help on the backend a bit. Columbus needs help in the middle.
