I expect a couple more tough decisions today, featuring some players who made a big impact while they were here.
Round 2, Game 27: Scott Hartnell vs. James Wisniewski
Hartnell, LW: 234 GP; 64 G; 82 A; 146 P
Round 1: Hartnell defeated Artem Anisimov, 140-47
Wisniewski, D: 209 GP; 26 G; 95 A; 121 P
Notes: The acquisition of Wisniewski in 2011 was part of GM Scott Howson’s attempt to go all-in on the Jackets being a contender (along with the pick-up of Carter). That season didn’t pan out, but Wiz became a clubhouse leader and a key contributor to the 2014 playoff run. That season he had 51 points.
Round 2, Game 28: Fedor Tyutin vs. Ryan Johansen
Tyutin, D: 553 GP; 39 G; 146 A; 185 P
Round 1: Tyutin defeated Derek MacKenzie, 128-59
Johansen, C: 309 GP; 79 G; 114 A; 193 P
Notes: The 4th overall pick in 2010, Joey had a slow start to this CBJ career, then exploded with 33 goals in 2013-14. The next season he tallied 71 points and was MVP of the All-Star Game.
