To be honest I have the exact same feeling. We need a clear cut number 1 D prospect. Johnson has that potential, is American, and is going to play in the NCAA next year, all charactistics the Rangers like to see in their picks.

The only comment I disagree with is that we should trade down to get him. If hypothetically we had the 2nd overall pick we should just take him since alot of people seem to think he's up there with Brule. Trading down to, say, 4 may be too big of a drop to still land him.

Of course things change over the season, but if Johnson is still on the board when we pick, we have to take him.
