Johnson may be the best fighter of the bunch but Nolan and CLune are servicable and it's not like Johnson is huge. None of the three are heavyweights and there aren't many true heavyweights in the AHL, thus why Johnson can "fake it" well enough and survive as a heavy.

I do agree though that I think Johnson makes it and somebody like Meckler is sent to Ontario.

Speaking of Ontario, is anyone else surpised by the lack of the usual guys like Jordan Hill, Chris Cloud, J.D. Watt that would be injury call ups but spend the bulk of the season on the Reign?
Chris Cloud is still with the Reign, and they also have C.J. Stretch in Ontario who will likely get some time in the AHL if they need some bodies due to injuries.

The Reign just made an interesting signing though, bringing in former NHLer Paul Mara.
