Johnson himself said they didn't use him properly in LA but he's been pretty pissed off in all his post trade interviews. He seems to be playing better in Columbus so the trade with LA is win/win thus far.
I've watched them play in the playoffs, but I guess if you have seen more of them maybe I'm wrong, but I was (and am) a fan of Johnson and at least in my book he's a second pairing guy. But again, like I said, I'll concede the point that their blueline is better off without him. I think it is pretty clear that my earlier post was not about Jack Johnson, I merely mentioned him as a way of buttressing my point. Ignore the Johnson sentence. The fact remains that Richards and Carter are not the driving force behind the Kings success this year, nor is their absence the driving force behind the Flyers lack of success.
