There was a lot of talk about the potential of the Columbus Blue Jackets trading away the 4th overall pick in the draft, but when all was said and done after a bit of a hold up on the floor, they wound up keeping the pick.
Ryan Johansen is a center for the Portland Winterhawks of the WHL. He's a teammate of fellow draftee Nino Neiderreiter. He ranked fifth on the team during the 2009-2010 season in goals (25) and finished 2nd in points (69).
Johansen is the 10th rated North American skater according to Central Scouting. He's already being praised for his work on both ends of the ice. His idol is Sharks C Joe Thornton. Not a bad choice, if you ask me.
The Islanders are up at 5 and they've been rumored to be shopping their pick. We shall see.
