In his first game as an Oiler in the battle of Alberta, Johnson shut the criers up by scoring 6 goals and adding an assist. Trying to reach Colorado GM for comment this reporter was informed he hung himself with an old leather belt in his basement after watching Sportscenter.

Johnson's performance still has him trailing Oiler superstar Theo Peckham in goals at 7-6 in the Maurice Richard race.
Realistic enough
