Fun game to watch IMO I really didn't think they played all that bad. The effort was definitely there, amazing what confidence can do for Johan's game. Anisimov Calvert Cam absolutely shut down Duchenes line bc they had the speed to match them. Cody often goes unnoticed but he's just a solid defender, like his game a lot. Artie is a great 2 way player for us, happy we have him. Pretty awesome he scored on his great friend to win the game.
I'm telling Johansen is becoming a very good player. I'd love to see him paired with a finisher. Artem is a beast. Defense is solid minus Aucoin. I'd like to see him in the press box when JJ gets back.
Would you guys trade Dubinsky(or probably Brass) for Booth and a pick? I have a feeling that paired with AA, Booth could be a 30 goal scorer for the Jackets.
Booth hasn't done much paired with Ryan Kesler, so it would be a gamble to think he'd be better with AA. His contract is bad too. There will be potential 30 goal scorers available this summer for less, with the cap coming down.
