I would think so. A way for the Rangers to have a bit of depth and improve the AHL team a bit.

From elite prospets

An offensive-minded defenseman, Johnson is a very good skater. Has good offensive instincts, and can quarterback the powerplay at lowel levels.
Needs to improve his play in his own end. Can make a few mistakes with the puck.

1 yr, $600,000 for Aaron Johnson with the NYR.
Good terms for a depth d-man.

This is similar to bringing in Syrvet. Improves the Wolfpack's defense and is a serviceable emergency callup, if needed.

It's important to note, his salary is below the 950k limit so if he is waived and sent down there is no cap hit.

yea as a 2 way deal this is a good one. A.Johnson has been around for a while bouncing up and down

good depth in CT with Syvet, Bickel who have NHL experience. McIlrath has some time to develop

they now have a few call ups on D if need be

Now let's wait for a few posters to come in here, having Googled the guy and read his scouting report, to tell us why he's an awesome depth signing or complete waste.

Everyone is an expert on HF!

In all seriousness, his numbers look fine. Hartford needs help on D and he has apparently played in almost 300 NHL games, so he's not completely worthless I guess. Fine by me.

He seriously is. It was an ongoing joke on the Jackets board that we kept Nash happy by signing this dude.
