Nick Johnson added to ASG roster

So it looks like the Wild will have a representative at the All Star game after all.

Good for him. He has been a great pickup and is really getting a chance to play with all the injuries we have experienced this year.

Ugh. Ha. I feel proud for him and all, but this is just BEGGING for pity jokes, etc. from the rest of the NHL. Just waiting for: "So someone who couldn't even make Pittsburgh's roster out of camp is Minny's best player? LMAO." Well, at least we know who is getting picked last.. And with his salary, he'll probably keep the car.

Edit: Just saw he's only in the skills competition.. Man, that would've been headdesk having him play in the ASG.

He's only in the rookie skills competition, as far as I know. Not in the actual game/draft that players become eligible for the car.

No. That was a guess at the lineup by some "writer" for NHL.com. Johnson was added today as an injury replacement for RNH.


As for pity moves, the real pity move is Eberle getting named as Koivu's replacement.

So, Johnson replaces RNH... is he on the All Star roster or rookie roster?

And Eberle replaces Koivu... okay.

So anyone know what Yeo's plan is for the team over the break?

Johnson gets the representation vote!

*sigh* He's going to stick out like a sore thumb among the other rookies.

I can't think of one "skill" excel at during the competition.

So, the next time we see a Heater-Koivu-Johnson line we get to call it the All All-Stars Line?

Perhaps "Two and a Half All-Stars"?

Funny that I don't think of him as a rookie or a skill guy, but good for him.

He's actually been one of the better players this year for us.

Oh he's a role player for sure, just an odd choice. Like Brodziak for the ASG.

That's true /shrug

Maybe since Scandella is in the minors, he couldn't be added and Spurgeon is injured.

I'd be perfectly content with nobody in the ASG. Don't really care. Like the skills comp though.

True it feels like a token throw in.

I'm calling that line the Monstars - only because I like to reference Space Jam whenever possible.

All Star Nick Johnson should be a square on the FSN bingo board.

You know it's going to be said.

He's not injured and he's not a rookie.

Careful. Did that in front of my gal this weekend and it wasn't exactly a panty dropper.

I wanted Heatley in the All-Star game so bad damnit. All the booing would've been absolutely hilarious. I'm sure he was offered the spot but declined. Looks like I have no reason to watch the All-Star game now.
