Cam Ward

Sportsnet: Columbus Blue Jackets general manager Jarmo Kekalainen took a hard line in the Ryan Johansen contract talks .

“Our success is going to come from being a team, not a bunch of individuals or stars, or whatever,” Kekalainen said during the NHL prospects tournament.

Johansen is seeking $6.5 million /year, Columbus is offering $3.5 million. The Detroit Red Wings are in no hurry for a decision from Daniel Alfredsson, who might miss training camp because of his bad back. New head coach Bill Peters said he’d like one of his goalies to play 60 games. Anton Khudobin appeared to be the #1 starting goalie last year, which leave Cam Ward and his $6.3 million / year salary on the bench. Earlier this summer, Ward’s name was mentioned in trade rumors.
