Colorado traded for Erik Johnson to be their franchise defensemen, and now a year later he's going to be traded for someone people are hoping can be a consistent 50-point forward and doesn't use his body to get position?
Not that I consider Colorado that competent, but that's big red flags to me. Quincey takes more penalties, but faces tougher competition (best on the team among defensemen), and Johnson is almost 60% in offensive zone starts, and under 50% offensive zone finish. Quincey isn't that much better, but it's not a major drop off like that.
I guess I would take Johnson, because I value defensemen a lot, but it's not the slam dunk everyone thinks it is.
