I might be wrong with my years but I think that was the year Carolina won the cup and they were serious contenders pretty much that entire season. They needed help on D, wanted Johnson to be the guy that provided that help, and he refused. Carolina did what they had to do as contenders, I think we're in a different position from them.

I hope the team takes a JVR approach. He probably should have stayed in school another year, but the Flyers have shown tons of patience with his career since that point and it looks like it is on the verge of paying huge dividends.
