You're the type that would have traded Peter Bondra after back to back underwhelming 20 goal years.

Schoenfeld and the Caps also gave up on a young Jason Allison. How did that work out? Remember he was routinely in the doghouse during those years.
0.58 P/G alone is not going to buy a lot of time in the NHL. What a player brings when the points aren't there has lot to do with his effectiveness as a NHL player, and it's pretty clear what Johansson brings is not anything good or else he would have been playing. He is a 3rd year pro that has not addressed his significant weaknesses.

Bondra is irrelevant to this discussion since he was an All-Star by his 3rd season.

Adam Oates actually ended up playing more games for the Caps than Allison did for the Bruins, and was the the 1st line center for the team that made it to the SCF. So it worked out pretty well for the Caps.
