You make an empirical statement about "Johansen's behavior", as if you have any clue. I'll be the first to admit that I don't have a clue; at this point, everything is whispers and innuendo. We just saw Brad Richards made a healthy scratch last night in a playoff game for reasons related to his play, and this was by a coach who he has a long history with. Is Richards injured? Is he lazy? Is there another issue? If anyone can dig up anything and disseminate it worldwide quickly, it's the New York media.

I remember the 1990 World Series, when Tony LaRussa benched Terry Steinbach (All-Star catcher) in favor of journeyman Jamie Quirk, and Jose Canseco (in his prime) for Willie McGee. Now, that World Series was against the Reds, so I guess it'll have to be the 1990 Reds and not the 1972 version.

Belligerent denial...that's adorable. The only thing I deny is intimate knowledge of the facts regarding Johansen in the AHL playoffs, because that's honest. If only certain others would do the same.
I'm going with he has sucked lately and added nothing to the team.
