I haven't seen much of Johnson, to little to say anything for certain, but the little I've seen, this kid is not a sure fire top pairing D in the NHL. At this point I would trade Staal in a second for Eric Johnson, I wouldn't for Jack...
He is a still only a unproven prospect and I would wait a while before I compared him with Zubov.
Just look at guys like Zyuzin, Aki Berg and Phillips.
