I'm not going to suggest that Tyutin would be enough, because he's not - he's not proven enough - but I don't expect a Pronger-esque deal (even if on a minor scale...which really wouldn't be a Pronger-esque deal...).

Two very fair opinions. As a fan, I agree with those that think a NYR/CAR deal is unlikely. The point I want to make is that a significant/painful amount of players/talent will have to be given up to aquire Johnson. If we can somehow give up garbage to get him I'm all for it of course, unfortunately, that outcome is unlikely.
