A 40 point rookie season as a 19 year old. Plus player in the playoffs with 4 points averaging 22 minutes a night. Not too shabby.
Insult him for wanting Fowler? Don't recall that what-so-ever. I clearly said that it is retarded to dislike Johansen because we didn't pick Fowler. I wanted Fowler to be drafted just like most of the rest of us at Nationwide who walked out of the arena wondering who the hell Johansen even was, but I wouldn't hate Johansen because I wanted Fowler, just like I never hated Tyutin because I liked Zherdev.

Johansen is a great prospect. Pro hockey is littered with can't miss guys who missed. Cam Fowler has already proven to be an NHL level player. Johansen as of now may never be one. There is no way of knowing and no reason to believe he will be until you see it.

So get out of your ivory towers and high horses. It isn't rocket science.
Actually I think most would have a hard time seeing why someone would have issues with the 2nd ranked prospect outside of the NHL.

We're arguing about man-crushes now?? Seriously??
Is someone going to tell me I can't like RJ now?? May as well.
"RJ is my favorite"
"NOPE YOUR WRONG LOL"
I'm not going to argue with Doug, but he's the guy who said Voracek would score 85 points last year, so you can't really question my credibility when you throw out claims like that.

I suppose you did use the word like and not want. (Geez I can't spell sometimes)

I do, however, take some exception with your statement after the word "despite". Potential top line center was the projection when we got him. It might seem more likely after another year, but was anyone really surprised by his progression in junior? Probably wouldn't have used that as an argument for your defense.

On a side note, I hate Crosby. For no rational reason. My guess is that the majority have "retarded" reasons for hating certain players. You probably have one or two in that category as well. Not liking Dek because he's a completely unknown entity at the NHL level probably doesn't fall into that category, assuming that actually is TW's reason.

I just hope we get to the playoffs and Johansen absolutely undresses Fowler for a sick goal. That would make me laugh so ******* hard. Not at anyone in particular, just all the haters.

I, too, wish for such a thing to happen, and it just might.

Cam Fowler has had one good season, and he led the entire Western Conference with his epic minus rating. If he has a great career and Ryan Johansen busts completely, then we can talk about hating on Ryan Johansen. Until then, just be happy that we have a 6'3" stud prospect at center. We have honestly never had a prospect like Johansen in our system, with his skillset and personality, I really still believe Scott Howson made the right pick.

Besides, if anyone knows about rushing 18 year olds to the NHL, it's us. Nikolai Zherdev had 34 points in 57 games as a rookie, and we all know how that turned out. I won't insult anyone's intelligence and compare him to Cam Fowler, but one good year in the NHL doesn't make you a great draft selection. I know every single person on this board would select a guy like Ryan Getzlaf, if we could go back and re-do the 2003 Draft ... I really see Ryan Johansen as the same type of player.

And I saw Ryan Getzlaf in his draft year and his next two years in the WHL.

I thought people were thinking he was projected to be a second line center when he was drafted. Regardless, I just find it crazy that someone would hate our top prospect just because we didn't draft Cam Fowler. Fowler had a good rookie year, there is no doubt about it, but just because Fowler scored a decent amount of points his first season, doesn't mean there aren't some question marks about his defensive play.

He's 19, of course there are question marks about his defensive play. You might as well say the sun will rise in the morning.

You did see the word "potential" top line didn't you? That hasn't changed.

I stated that most people have that player they don't like for irrational reasons. Get over it. I'm sure there are a few things you think that others think are crazy.

What does hating Tyutin have to do with liking Zherdev? The Russian factor?

Crush - Tyutin, Wiz, Kubalik

Anti - Dorsett, Mason, Russell

Vinny Prospal is God. God is Love.

Therefore, Vinny Prospal is Love...err, Mancrush.

Also, Derek Dorsett. And the fact that we have a guy who's widely known as Jack M-F'in Johnson is cool, too.
