I think Johnson is flying up the charts. Not only is he physical but he is also very solid offensively. He doesn't have tremendous size (he's listed as 6'0") but he plays a bigger game. I would put him as a smaller version of Pronger.

From what I have read, Brule sounds like a Joe Thornton type player. He is physical, crashes the net and plays a bigger game than his size would suggest.

Personally I would love to get either one of them but think if we are building from the net out, Johnson would be the best choice. It's not too often you can add as complete of a defenseman as he is. There aren't too many elite defensemen in the league and down the road I see him as being one of them.
