Erik Johnson is severely underrated. The hype with the first pick and all that jazz and nonsense. He's a very solid player and his skillset isn't in line with JJ. JJ will be on the team regardless because he is the heart of American hockey and a solid leader and blueliner to boot. Our D corps is stacked but Erik Johnson, though I really do enjoy JJ's style of play, is much more dynamic and coupled with the fact that he's a hell of a skater will probably make him part of this team.
