I haven't said Moore or RyJo were failures... But I'm certainly not ready to proclaim them as successes simply because they played for the last place team in the NHL this season....

Johansen had 21 points in his first season on the team... Hell, Gilbert Brule had 19 points in his first full season with the team and both were first round picks....

Forgive me if I'm not ready to judge Johansen as a total success yet, the guy was obviously ready, talent-wise, for the NHL this season, playing another year in Portland might have been preferrable if we knew then that this would be a total wash of a season....
