Coming into this season, the Columbus Blue Jackets looked like they could have a formidable first line.

The current status of that line?

Nathan Horton is out with a degenerative back condition. Ryan Johansen is an unsigned restricted free agent in a brutal, contentious negotiation with the team. And now Boone Jenner will miss “significant time” with a broken left hand, according to Puck Rakers.

He’ll be out for at least a month.

An actual quote from GM Jarmo Kekalainen: “That’s why we have a second line, a third line and a fourth line."

So does this do anything to move the needle on Johansen?
