Johnson = Phaneuf
 
Will Eric Johnson one day be the calilber of defenseman Dion Phaneuf is? :dunno:

If so we should make a big pitch to try and get him

It will be tough to be as good as Phaneuf is but Johnson is an excelent defensemen nothing is impossible.

I think to get him we'll give something like 16th overall Kostitsyn Komisarek and Zednik. I don't think it's a good move to do.

I don't think he's as quick a skater as Phaneuf. I see him as an Eric Brewer type at this point, and that depends on his work ethic. Both he and Kessel seem to have character issues looking from the outside-in imo. Not a good sign when a kid is about to make the big leagues and doesn't look like he's willing to work.

It's obviously hard to judge at this point. Who would have thought that Phaneuf was going to be this good? People thought his skating, size and shot would be excellent, but his defense and judgment in the offensive end really surprised a lot of people I think.

To me, Johnson is a smooth skater with good size, but his judgment can get a bit wobbly at times and his reaction time and quickness are questionable. He'll be a solid NHLer without question, but whether he becomes a star is another matter imo.

So McGuire will be obsessing over Johnson as well like he does Phaneuf on a daily basis?

There is a better place for this question to be asked, friend.
