    his goal tonight was 99% thanks to Hyman. He's an ok skater and ok shooter but so are a lot of guys. I want to like him but he just looks like random 3rd/4th line filler with no standout skills. Although he has been putting the puck in the net a bit so maybe he has a better nose for it than I realize. But I doubt it. Trevor Moore was more impressive.

    well, he's having a better season than Kapanen and there must be a reason for it

    You know what's crazy AJ is probably gonna finish top 3 in Calder voting.

    We got a good one.

    He is going to be a star in his own right. He is top 6 material. Having AJ on our fourth line shows the teams depth.

    Sorry AJ, but you'll have to stay on the 4th line until you sign that team friendly, 3-5 year contract.

    I was underrating the guy, but he looks really good. A really great complimentary piece.

    Definitely needs to moved up the lineup.

    He and Marleau need to switch places.

    Marleau on the 4th line isn't going to happen I don't think. But Johnsson giving the team that kind of offensive depth isn't the worst thing either.

    At the very least him and Brown. Johnsson-Kadri-Nylander could be filthy.

    Hyman didn't even try to pass the puck, it was a lucky bounce the made the goal, if anything Hyman shouldn have the assist for beeing ego. Johnsson has always been a sniper/scorer first and foremost from the juniors to now, this poster is full of ****

    Do you think? id have petterson, dahlin and heiskanen as it stands, johnsson in the group of white, kotkaniemi, svech, tkachuck group. I have him 4th currently and tracking well for top 3 if his play continues.

    that's crazy given his usage. He's seems like a more natural goal scorer than Nylander or Kapanen.

    Hart is trending up. AJ is a good foot soldier. The others are trending to be game changers.

    I wouldn’t hesitate to give him the Arvidsson deal.

    Only issue is it’s tough to fit that next season.

    AJ is not afraid to go to the dirty areas. The fact that he now has 1 more goal than Kadri playing 4-5 fewer minutes per game and limited PP minutes shows me how disappointing Kadri's year has been.

    You are being too generous. I would start at the Brown deal.

    It won’t happen. But it should happen.

    In different circumstances I’d be okay with that, but he’s a prime candidate for a bridge deal to ease the team’s cap issues next season.

    Why?

    He will get some time with Kadri but he is a lot more dangerous playing against 4th liners and scoring giving us a lot of scoring depth.

    But we aren't the Hawks.

    He's our best LW.

    The Hawks didn't let a Top3 player go.

    Our team somehow has our RFAs making UFA money. On short deals.

    Because Johnsson is a much better player at this point.

    Marleau looks a step behind where he was last season

    Johnsson is a top 3 player? :huh:

    Obviously that's not what you meant.

    Agreed.

    He's lighting it up in his current role, so apparently the wise thing to do is change his role. :sarcasm:
