The injury to James Wisniewski creates a void on the Columbus blue line that's hard to fill.
It's no secret that Jack Johnson will be asked to take on as many minutes as he can handle, as evidenced by the 34:59 he played against Detroit, but there comes a point when his production may suffer. Coach Todd Richards acknowledged this after Saturday's game, saying "..everyone is going to have to make up the minutes. Wiz played over 20 minutes a night in all different situations. I don't think we can give Jack (Johnson) any more, so it's going to come down to other guys." For the time being, consider Johnson as solid an option as ever despite his relatively slow start.
