I still think that the coree of any deal for Johnson should be Tyutin and Immonen. Tyutin gives them a top 4 defensemen who can step in now yet still has the potential to be more. But I don't believe Tyutin alone equals Johnson in value (not even close, imo) so Immonen adds value to the package.

I'm still not sure if that is enough value to bring back Johnson, but it's a start.

Staal makes no sense since he doesn't help the Canes now either (I do believe that he's more NHL ready than Johnson but he can't be counted upon to make the team.) Tyutin, while not as promising of a prospect, can help thee Canes now.

Whether or not such a deal would work comes down to how the Canes feel about Tyutin. If they think he's gonna develop consistency and become that #1/2 kind of guy then this deal could work. If they're put off by his red flags then this is a dead end.
