It usually isn't, but in that case it absolutely is.

Jack Johnson is not good defensively. I love the dude to death for his dedication to and activism with USA Hockey, but he's not good.

I loved playing against him when he was on LA, usually good for a major gaffe a game.

In the SJ game, where the Jackets killed us, the only players who were positive Corsi-wise and scoring chance-wise on the Sharks were the three forwards that lined up against Johnson.
