Question, why isn't Stephen Johns in the "Prospects" header at the top of board?

I think Larmer was being sarcastic about Sweatt, BWC.

He is terrible, 12pts in 31 games in the AHL.

Imagine that, another Tallon fail pick.

If Johns refuses to sign with the Hawks, don't let the door hit him in the ass on teh way out.

I have zero interest in keeping players who don't care to be a part of this organization. (ie/Niemi)

but to be fair, Jordan Schroeder wasnt doing much better either for them in the AHL and now he is up playing minutes for the Nucks.. they just dont have a great minor league team imo. at least offensive talent wise.

As for Ludvig ,, Hawks didn't see much in him after wasting a 2nd round pick and cut there losses

To bad they didn't do same with Beach

And clearly no one else was all that impressed with Ludvig as he was not drafted again this past year despite being back in draft
Beach was coming off a 52-goal season in his last junior year. 52 goals in 68 games. There's not a chance in hell Chicago wouldn't have signed him. C'mon.

Johns should make this team next year out of camp as he is just mature enough right now to do so. He isnt weak on skating like some bigger dmen, he makes smart passes out of his zone, his coverage is solid, and oh yeah...the dude hits the **** out of people!

With Rosival and Brookbank filling 6th-7th dmen spots currently, and who knows whenever Monty comes back, there should be a spot for Johns to make this club right away next year...hell he might crack the big club after his season is done at ND if the Hawks have any injuries on the blueline. He brings everything that we are missing to our blueline and have been missing for sometime. Tough ass kid.
Agree 100% and I LOVE the fact that he's a right handed shot too!

So, I doubt he's struggling to find a role on the team. I think you're thinking of Justin Holl, who's spent some time at forward for Minnesota.
Holl it was, thanks. Hope Johns is as good as advertised.
