I don't think there's a lot of people doubting that the 'canes got a pretty good young defenseman in Gleason, but the whole point of the trade in the first place was to get help on defense for this season to try and stay in the hunt for the cup. If the 'canes miss the playoffs (which at this point is still a very real possibility), I would say that the trade was really a bad one for the 'canes because they basically gave up 7 years minimum of Jack Johnson for one year of not making the playoffs.

Now if Johnson turns out to be the next Brian Berard, then it wasn't a big loss, but it seems like the chances of that happening are pretty slim.
Great post... I think the trade is bad already, if we miss the playoffs it becomes atrocious in my eyes.
