JJ was the Captain for the US team at this year's World Championship. He will be on the Olympic team in 2014 - likely as an Assistant Captain. Johnson is also younger and (I believe) cheaper - contract and cap.
Now... Please explain why Yandle is at a (much) higher level than Jack Johnson.
You do realize we're talking about the NHL here, not Team USA? Don't get me wrong, I like JJ and think he has a chance to flourish in Columbus but right now his numbers in the NHL, which are all I care about, are not on par with Yandle. There is a reason Yandle is a 2 time all-star and JJ is a zero time all-star. Oh and yes JJ is younger...by 4 months.
