I'd be surprised if Sulzer goes to Montreal for picks and Johnson is recalled to replace Sulzer. Sure Johnson has lots of NHL experience, but has been stuck in the AHL all season. If our hand is forced by injury, I can understand bringing Johnson up at this crucial point of the season. But I don't think we do this unless we are forced.

If Trotz and Poile were comfortable with Johnson, why not trade Sulzer earlier in the year and bring Johnson up sooner.

We've all been saying that a trade for a veteran D-man would help. And though bringing Johnson up from MIL is not necessarily a trade, the idea is the same. I just don't think Johnson is veteran presence we need.
