Former minor league teammate of Paul Bissonnette. Came up with that group that really seemed to benefit from Bylsma. I guess he will be useful for filling in on that 4th line RW spot when David Moss suffers his inevitable injury. Ifthisisa one waysigning,it probably rules out ourbringing back Gilbert Brule, which bums me out. I feel like Brule was born to play in an anonymous small market with an incredibly structured coach like Tippett. I think we are overreacting a little bit to getting run over physically by the Kings. Everyone got runoverbythe Kings in the playoffs. Johnson certainly adds more size than Brule, but I feel like Brule would ultimately be the more effective ofthe two.Atleast for a team like Phoenix, who are starved for offense.
EDIT: nevermind, its a twoway. Good deal. Nice signing.
