I think the "bitterness" came in when a few misinformed Jets fans mischaracterized Josi as "crap" or "spare parts."

When you have several people saying they wouldn't trade Josi for Kane straight across, it might make you wonder if maybe you're just not that familiar with Josi, which is to be expected given where he plays.

Put it this way...the only defenseman in your system, including Trouba, that I'd put a comparable overall value on is Bogosian. Josi's already a top pairing defenseman, and I think before all is said and done, it will end up in the elite category.

I've been watching the Predators since the beginning, and the only defenseman to be this good, this young was Shea Weber. Josi is strides ahead of where Suter was at this age.
