Then again, if it comes down to it, Johnson or Voynov? Voynov or Johnson?
I like JJ and think he is/will be a solid defenseman in the NHL for years. But I will keep Voynov for the following reasons:

1. JJ will get us more value coming back (at least it should lol) and leave us more cap space.

2. Although I think JJ is a great puck carrier, Voynov clearly has better hockey sense already. Voynov has his lapses, but I worry much less with him back there than JJ defensively. Also Voynov has made several critical defensive plays on outnumbered attacks.


PS: BTW, I'm not worried about Lokti and Voynov's "Russian-ness". They seem like kids with a good head on their shoulders and are solid competitors. (of course this is based on what I see so take w/grain of salt)
