Like I said, I'd have loved to acquire Johnson to play with Staal, not in place of him.
But man I just cannot agree with these trade for Carolina. If this was the Rangers we'd been having a riot on here and rightfully so.
Two months ago Carolina had quality depth guys who provided character and a stud defensive prospect.
Today they have a nice/good young defenseman and an okay depth player.
Just not a good exchange.
Don't get me wrong, Tim Gleason is a good young defenseman but I don't see him on the level of a Staal or a Johnson or a Phaneuf or someone like that.
Makes you wonder what we could have gotten Johnson for if Carolina was a west coast team.
