Mike Johnson Kudo's

Is it me or has Johnson made this 3rd line a scoring threat. I love the way he gets into the corners and mucks around for that puck to setup a scoring chance. Way to go Gainey for picking up this diamond in the rough for a 4th round pick

Gainey for Prime Minister!!

hehe sorry for the gaff yes Mike!!

Eric? I assume you mean Mike

Yeah, so far he has been one heck of a player for us, both ends of the rink, both sides of the puck. Great job by Gainey to aquire him. The fact he got him for so little makes it fantastic. Lets hope he has a great season ahead of him

Wow, what a panic...

I thought the Habs got Erik Johnson for a split second, like maybe by Gainey and Carbs holding St. Louis management at gunpoint...

Don't be so dramatic. We got Mike for a 4th round pick, Eric shouldn't take more than a 2nd rounder

Well with Bonk's performance last night, definately nothing more than Bonk and a 2nd....

As far as Johnson is concerned, this guy is just the perfect mix of what Zednik and Bulis, in their best years, were able to give us. Speed, great defensive plays, and great offensive sense as well.

Again, you want to laugh think of Johnson for a 4th......You want to laugh harder, think a 3rd for Zednik.....

Johnson seems a bit different than what I expected. At one point, he had some flash to his game, had some cruising speed like Bullis does. He seems to be the opposite of Bullis now, not as noticeable flying thru centre, but more focused on 1 on 1 battles, protecting the puck, making smart little plays, he's been very useful.

I heard Pierre McGuire talking about him last week, and I think he described him pretty well, Johnson's a pro, he understands the game and what his job is. He's a solid player, much moreso than I expected, esp. along the boards.

Agreed. So far, I've been wrong about Johnson being merely a bandaid and soft. He's been strong on the puck and fundamentally excellent.

And I have yet to see Johnson take a shift off.

Would Johnson be suitable for a try with Pleks and Kovy????

I'm reading this without my glasses, and I thought you said you'd yet to see him take his shirt off. That would be a different post altogether. Gotta start wearing them all the time.

Glasses or shirts?

Actually, maybe it's for the best if you don't answer that.

I think this is a case of you seeing what you want to see.

And he'll pop in a few goals too...very good acquisition!

For me Jonhson look more usefull then Zednik and Bulis combine.
For a 4th rounder, I say we owned the Yotes big time...

And on the plus side, he look like a real old school hockey player with is helmet half strapped. Its always a plus on a team. And he clic with Bonk, if him and Bonk end up the year with 15 goals, we are in buisness.

Johnson has played very well every game of the season, he has seemed to inspire Bonk and is teaching Perezhogin some good habits when it comes to work along the borads.

Johnson and Bonk are both quality players. That's going to be a good line all year (but I think their linemate is going to change sooner rather than later -- Perez is playing his way onto the second line, and vice versa for Sammy).

You guys were all quick to jump on the name error, but nobody noticed the incorrect pluralization with an apostrophe in the thread title? It's unbelievable how often that happens. Maybe when French was banned they should have instituted a zero-tolerance on brutal English, too.
Phenomenal.
I'm out.

Well given the name was wrong, I maybe thought he was talking about someone named Eric Johnson Kudo.
You're right, though. As someone who takes pride in his own grammar and spelling, I let everyone else off with a free pass. However on this particular board that might be more because English isn't always a user's primary written language.

I've loved the pickup of Johnson since it happened, he's a great guy to have on our team. Wouldn't mind Gainey giving him a 2 year deal after this year.

Johson has been a pleasant surprise for me as well. Would love to see a line of Johnson-Pleks-Kovalev.

We should also ban Jim Rome take-offs while we're at it.

Anybody know the story behind the trade for the Yotes? Seemed like a solid player for them too, why give him up for a 4th?

To make room for Owen Nolan and Jeremy Roenick, of course.

Johnson is a great player... He's getting goals from freakin' Bonk, man, how can anyone bash this pick-up?
