Whoever's on that line right now, we've really got to find ways to be successful because we're counted on by this team."

The Nashville Predators have acquired Ryan Johansen from the Columbus Blue Jackets in exchange for Seth Jones.

In Johansen, Nashville is getting a young, elite forward that has the potential to mesh favorably with Filip Forsberg. The Predators are giving up a very promising defenseman in Jones, but Nashville's defense is strong enough to make that sacrifice viable. This also marks a dramatic end to Johansen's tenure with Columbus as he never seemed to mesh well with new Blue Jackets coach John Tortorella. With that in mind, this change of scenery could help turn Johansen's season around as he has been something of a disappointment thus far with 26 points in 38 games.

Ryan Johansen was back in his usual spot as the Columbus Blue Jackets top center after he was a healthy scratch on Thursday.

Johansen centered Nick Foligno and Boone Jenner and did not let the benching get to him. "I’ve been in the league for five years now, so if I’m scared to make a mistake now, then there is something wrong with me, and there is something wrong with my attitude towards playing hockey," he said. "It’s my job to go out there and have fun and do what I do. If I make mistakes, that’s hockey. But if I keep making the same mistakes over, that’s where it becomes an issue." Johansen was held pointless on Saturday and has 22 points including six goals in 32 games this season. He should be starting in most if not all fantasy leagues.

Just in case you were concerned, Ryan Johansen will indeed will play Saturday night against Philadelphia.

It's not as though the self-admitted out of shape scorer has had an objectively poor season, he has six goals and 22 points over 31 games thus far. Consider that he's currently shooting just 7.7% percent on 130 shots, and his career shooting percentage is 11.1%. Even a top notch scorer can have a bad season, but expect the 23-year-old to rebound as the calendar passes along.

Ryan Johansen admitted he was out of shape earlier in the season.

Johansen stated that he had a scare due to an elevated heart rate and did not work out like he normally did. "I won’t get into details about what was going on, but I definitely wasn’t able to be myself, keep my regular schedule," Johansen said. "That’s something I’ve been trying to catch up with this season, and I’ve started to feel really well the last little while. It definitely was hard, especially with all the back-to-back games early in the season, to feel like myself out there," Johansen said. "But now I feel like I’m where I want to be." The Blue Jackets did not practice Friday so there is no word on whether or not Johansen will be a healthy scratch as he was on Thursday. He is a fantasy starter when in the Columbus lineup.
