Johansson is a very good prospect; a fair number of Avs fans aren't irate about losing Johansson in this deal, but having seen him play, they should be. I know you'll find Dario's (the HF writer you referenced) comments on the relevant thread on the Avs board and they echo what I'm saying. Getting Johansson was a mini-coup for the Caps at this time; it just doesn't look like it right now. If he stays healthy all year, he could challenge for a spot as early as next season.
He is exactly right.
