Is Ryan Johansen A Crybaby?

The Nashville Predators faced the Columbus Blue Jackets at Columbus’ Nationwide Arena this past weekend and a former Jackets player is a little miffed at how he was received.  Ryan Johansen played for the Jackets nearly four NHL seasons before being involved in a blockbuster trade that brought Seth Jones to Columbus.

Ryan even was involved in 2015 All Star festivities in Columbus after a stellar 2014-15 season that saw him amass 26 goals and 45 assists.  It is thought in many circles that Ryan was traded because he & head coach John Tortorella did not see eye-to-eye.

Apparently when Ryan returned to Columbus this past weekend, he expected a warmer return than he received; “I am a little disappointed they didn’t put anything on the Jumbotron and say ‘thank you’ or anything like that,” Johansen told the Columbus Dispatch. “I think we all know who made that call, but whatever.”  The “who” is more than likely John Tortorella.

No, the only reception he received at Nationwide Arena was boos from the CBJ faithful.  So what do you think?  Did Ryan deserve some recognition from CBJ management or is he just being a whiner?
