Wilson - EJ
Siemens - Elliott
Gaunce - Barrie

Thoughts?
I'd swap Gaunce and Wilson at some point.

I think Siemens might end up being the ideal guy for Johnson. Although it would be nice to see Siemens and Elliott together again, just like junior, Siemens is projecting to be a shutdown guy. EJ could use a player like him to play with.

We have never reported the Parise deal is done...

I hope EJ worked on his lateral movement over the time off. I also want a very pissed off Erik Johnson when the season resumes.

Everything I've read suggests he hasn't been doing much of anything. Him and Hejduk both whom were doing other things like coaching instead of skating and working out.

I predict both will be injured right away

What?

EJ was in Minnesota playing hockey 4-5 times a week during the lockout.

Really? OK.

Thats much better then what I had heard. I know he was there recently skating skrimmage games with Parise and Suter and stuff but didn't know it was all off-season.

Glad I am wrong.

Still worried about Hejduk. Wish he would have retired

The less I know, the more I'm sure of it.

A short season might be better for Hejduk anyway. He started off last season well but faded.

Johnson's coaching was all the way bay at the end of October.

Skating with Crosby and his trainer in October

Skating in Minnesota



"I've been skating 4-5 days a week...I'm in great shape I think. I've been training this entire time to make sure one day you wake up and have to go and play an NHL game."


He also seems like a pretty healthy guy in general. No reason to think he is going to be out of shape.

I'm curious to see how the coaching staff changes will impact his game. Hopefully more ice time and responsibility, if he is playing like he played the last half of last season.

EJ was known to enjoy partying. Doesn't make him a bad person. He still can be a stud D Man.

I don't know if there's a level he can get to with that consistently, that we didn't see last year. That goes for rushing the puck 5 on 5 too. That's why he needs a good two way guy to partner with, rather than a defensive D IMO.

I absolutely love how good he can skate and control the puck, its pretty special for a d man his size. I still believe he can hit his potential, just two years ago when he put up 39p, ppl had his listed as a top 10 or 15 dman now hes a #7.
