Shooter says Jack Johnson is Wild's pick...

Johnson probably Wild's pick

CHARLEY WALTERS


It would be surprising if the Minnesota Wild, with the No. 4 overall pick in the National Hockey League draft Saturday in Ottawa, don't choose Jack Johnson of Faribault, Minn.

Johnson, an extremely aggressive 6-foot, 197-pound defenseman who has committed to the University of Michigan, played for Shattuck-St. Mary's in Faribault before joining the U.S. National Development program.
of course, he has to be there when we draft...

bet the farm on JJ going number 2 to Anaheim

Of course the Wild would pick Johnson if he was available even though defense isn't where we need help the most, but there's no way he'll be there when the #4 pick comes up.
Shooter's just out of touch when it comes to hockey. Last week or the week before that we was pointing out players who should be high draft picks who have Minnesota ties and leaves out the fact that the most anticipated draftee in over a decade also played in Minnesota. Maybe he doesn't see Crosby going hgh in the draft.

Too bad Johnson won't be there.

Yea, Johnson'll be gone. If Anaheim doesn't take him (stupid move), the Canes sure will.

Sometimes these guys just can't get past the local connection. If they would take into account who was picking before the Wild, they would know that he would not be there. Not that he's a bad player but no way is he there at #4. ZERO chance.

As long as there is no "close personal friend" involved with such a trade.

Should we start several hundred rumors about him so maybe somebody will have a brain fart? They'd have to be juicy ones though, even then someone might take a chance on the kid.

I won't complain if he was there at #4. I just don't see anyone moving up to the #2 spot and not take Johnson. Even if that somehow happens, wouldn't you think that CAR would have a serious time passing him buy? I'm thinking that if someone moves up to the #2 pick and they don't pick JJ, then that guy will be Pouliot.

It's still going to come down to the 3 guys-Kopitar, Brule, Ryan.
