You look at Jack Johnson, and you think, man, he has some serious tools to work with. Then you watch him play and he just has never lived up to his potential. His stats back that up, too.
I won't fault you for not being a fan of JJ. However, I do think you would find that the JJ who has played for Columbus the previous two seasons is not the one you describe or many pegged in LA. He has a lot more positives than negatives to his game. We're very happy with him and he's on a great contract just in his prime. Not that I'll change your mind but maybe you'll see a difference when the CBJ and Flyers play more frequently.

The OP was horrible regardless. Like JJ or not.
