One thing this clears up is that it wasnt Craig Johnsons that ended his career, but rather Joseph Stumpel who collided with Deader in the open ice.

Thanks to The Avalanche for loaning Adam to us for a couple of season. This guy was a real hockey player and since then no one has played with as much heart as this guy did.

This is true, but it was Johnson's knee during a game against the Leafs I believe, that put him on the IR in the first place. He was on the road to coming back when the Stumpel accident happened during a non- contact practice. I kind of wished Lombardi would have brought him back in the same capacity the Avs did. He'd have been a great guy to help the young guys.
